Aliens arrested in L.A. sweep

More than 600 suspected illegal alien workers have been arrested since Monday in a series of raids by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) called ``Operation Employer.'' The plan, like ``Operation Jobs,'' in which 6,000 aliens were arrested three years ago, is designed to ``see that jobs now being held by illegal aliens are made available to [United States] citizens,'' said Harold Ezell, regional INS commissioner.

Ernest Gustafson, INS district director, predicted that another 300 to 400 would be arrested at other locations this week. -- 30 --
