DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Immigration officers arrested 89 people in North Texas and Oklahoma as part of a three-day enforcement sweep.

Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers say they picked up people from Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, along with individuals from Nigeria, Pakistan and Vietnam during a recent crask-down on illegal immigration. 

Officials say most of the people they targeted did have criminal histories with convictions on charges ranging from aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse and driving while intoxicated.

One of the illegals apprehended was wanted in Mexico in connection with a 2009 murder case.

A man that is from Guatamala was caught living in Mesquite and had a sexual assault conviction from 1991.

 Those who had previously been deported, but came back into the country, face Federal re-entry charges. If convicted they will serve prison time in the U.S. then face deportation again.
