U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 82 people from 26 nations in an operation focused on Virginia and D.C., the agency said in a release.
The arrests happened from March 26 to 30, in Virginia, including two in D.C. and one in Maryland.
Sixty-eight of the people arrested had previous criminal convictions for crimes like armed robbery, larceny and drug addiction, the agency said in a release.
Included in the arrests were a 50-year-old second lieutenant in command of the Somalian National Security Service, known for its human rights abuse, and a 47-year-old Ethiopian national convicted of felony cocaine distribution, the release said.
