Eleven foreign nationals arrested Feb. 22 in raids at Jackson and Meridian area restaurants by agents of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency have pleaded guilty, or in one case await a plea hearing, to violating the federal Re-entry of Deported or Removed Alien act.

They are among 55 foreign nationals who were arrested by ICE agents at eight Asian restaurants.

The others were sent to the ICE Detention Facility in Jena, La.,and were not prosecuted but simply deported because they had not previously been formally ordered to leave the United States, said Jackson lawyer Carlos Tanner.
