CHICAGO -- In a four-day operation that targeted fugitive aliens in the Chicago area and northern Indiana, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 144 people, the agency announced Wednesday.

Fugitive aliens are illegal immigrants who failed to appear for immigration hearings or absconded after having been ordered to leave the country by a federal immigration judge, according to a release from ICE.

Beginning Sept. 12, four local ICE Fugitive Operations teams targeted fugitives in the Chicago area and northern Indiana. Of those arrested, 110 were fugitives who had final orders of deportation, while 34 were immigration violators encountered by ICE agents during targeted arrests, the release said.

ICE agents made arrests in Chicago, Beach Park, Country Club Hills, Gurnee, Grayslake, Harwood Heights, Libertyville, North Chicago, Nottingham Park, Round Lake, Skokie, Waukegan, Willowbrook and Zion. Indiana fugitives were targeted in Elkhart, Goshen, Mishawaka, Nappanee and South Bend, according to the release.
