Three undocumented people in the City of Santa Barbara were arrested in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid last week as part of a four-day operation across Southern California, yielding 112 detentions total. According to ICE officials, the arrestees included Mexican men with, individually, two convictions of DUI and one hit-and-run causing death or injury, convictions for sexual battery and battery, and a conviction of battery on spouse. Two are awaiting a hearing before an immigration judge; one was deported. A fourth person arrested in Goleta was later released, according to ICE.
