LAS VEGAS (AP) — Federal officials say 61 arrests were made in Nevada as part of a nationwide campaign to catch people who illegally reenter the country after they’ve been deported.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Wednesday the operation to arrest previously identified deportees was part of a seven-day enforcement effort last week that netted 2,900 convicted people in the 50 states and four U.S. territories.

Officials say 45 people were arrested in the Las Vegas area, including a 44-year-old Mexican man who had been deported following a conviction for smuggling drugs and a 32-year-old Mexican man convicted of attempted lewdness with a child.

Sixteen people were arrested in the Reno area.

Officials say the sweep was the largest of its kind and involved more than 1,900 immigration officers.
