32 illegal immigrants arrested in Georgia

Federal authorities have arrested 32 illegal immigrants in central and south Georgia who they say are accused of committing crimes or fled after a judge ordered them to leave the country.

They were rounded up in a four-day operation that ended Friday and took place in Houston, Peach, Bibb, Dougherty, Toombs and Thomas counties.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Ivan Ortiz-Delgado says many of the illegal immigrants are subject to immediate removal since they have outstanding deportation orders or were previously deported.

The rest will stay in custody until their criminal cases are completed, they get a hearing before an immigration judge or travel arrangements out of the country can be made.
