SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) – The Department of Homeland Security rounded up 26 undocumented immigrants throughout the metro-Savannah area, all of whom had prior criminal arrests or convictions, according to the Chatham County sheriff.
One was listed as wanted by INTERPOL.
Chatham County Sheriff John Wilcher told WTOC Thursday night that his deputies were asked to escort Homeland Security officials around the city to predetermined locations to make these arrests.
There were no incidents of violence during the sweep.
The federal agents out of Atlanta were here for two days collecting their suspects. All 26 have been taken to the federal holding facility in Ocilla, GA.
Their deportation hearings will likely take place in the coming days.

Drop in la buckéto.
Just a thought here. Entering our borders illegally is a criminally prosecutable and jailable offense.
It however is offensible to me to have to pay to house, feed, etc. these criminals for years.
The revolving door of deported criminals is ridiculous.
I promote the idea that deporting anyone that they sign an agreement contract that if they are ever found here again that they will be summarily executed by firing squad.
