Immigration sweep nets 42 in Lake Tahoe area

Forty-two illegal aliens were arrested in a sweep by immigration agents recently in the Lake Tahoe Basin in California and Nevada. Half of those detained, 21, were immigration fugitives, and had previously been ordered deported by an immigration judge but refused to comply, said Virginia Kice, spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Six of the detainees had previous criminal convictions.

The sweep took place June 30 and July 1 around the Tahoe area and were part of the Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement Fugitive Operations Program.

The majority of those detained during the operation have already been deported to their native countries.

  1. My son, a refugee of the mortgage industry, lives in L.A. and can't find a job in the restaurant industry, even though he has a number of years in management, due to the vast number of illegal aliens who are competing for jobs. He wants to go up to Tahoe, where we have a condo, and try his luck. I found this posting when I was trying to see if the illegals had taken over Tahoe as well. Maybe they will be afraid to work there if they keep on top of them. Good news.


Please be civil. Thank you.
