A federal immigration sting in Florida last week led to the arrest of 95 people from dozens of countries who have been convicted of other crimes.
The arrests were the result of a sting by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to detain foreign nationals who have been convicted of violent crimes, sex crimes, and drug trafficking charges, the Associated Press reported.
During the sting, ICE officials took 84 men and nine women from 22 counties into custody, AP reports.
The sting netted “25 arrests in Miami-Dade County, eight in Broward County, 13 in West Palm Beach, 19 in Tampa, 11 in Orlando, 14 in Fort Myers, two in Jacksonville and one in Tallahassee,” according to the AP report.
In an interview Friday with The Florida Independent, state Sen. Mike Fasano's legislative assistant said that he was looking forward to hearing what Gov. Rick Scott would put in place of Florida's Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, which Scott wants to repeal: If the governor has a better plan, I'd love to hear it.
