INDIANAPOLIS — Federal agents have arrested 40 people during an immigration sweep in the Indianapolis area.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Monday the 37 men and three women who were arrested include convicted criminal aliens, immigration fugitives and immigration violators.

The agency says 25 have prior convictions for crimes including assault, domestic battery, drunken driving and drug charges. Thirteen have been previously ordered to leave the country but didn't go. Four have illegally re-entered the U.S. after being deported.

Thirty-three of those arrested are from Mexico. ICE says others are from El Salvador, Cuba, Guatemala, Honduras, India and Peru.

The three-day sweep ended Sunday.
