DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Federal authorities say 18 people have been arrested in Iowa on warrants for immigration violations.

A news release from the office of U.S. Attorney Nicholas Klinefeldt says the 18 were arrested Thursday in Newton, Oskaloosa and Pella.

They’re accused of administrative immigration violations. The violations include illegally residing in the United States and violating terms of their legal entry into the country.

Klinefeldt’s office says none of the 18 was arrested on criminal charges.

The 18 people are likely to be deported.
