Federal immigration officials say 28 people have been arrested in Maryland during a nationwide sweep that targeted immigration violations in "sanctuary" jurisdictions. The Baltimore Sun reports U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday the four-day operation ended with 498 people taken into custody across the country. Of those arrested this week, the agency said 317 had criminal convictions.

In Maryland, the arrests included 15 individuals who do not have legal status in the U.S. or were violating the terms of their status and were coming into the administrative removal process for the first time; six individuals who had gone through immigration proceedings and were defying court orders to leave the country; and seven individuals who had previously been removed from the country and subsequently re-entered, ICE confirmed Friday.
