Burlington--Alamance DAPP received accolades from the U.S. Dept. of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service in June. With the support of DAPP personnel, the Charlotte INS office arrested 19 aliens who were on probation in Alamance County.

"The operation was a resounding success that was made possible by the hard work of all the probation officers in division 2, district 15A," said INS Officer Donald Young. "While we have worked with probation and parole officers all over North and South Carolina, we have never seen a district that had a better capability of locating and producing the individuals under their supervision."

Fourteen Mexicans, three El Salvadorans, one Jamacian, and one Trinidadian were taken into custody. Fourteen have been deported from the U.S. The other five are having their cases reviewed by the Executive Office of Immigration Review.

"I would like to thank District Manager Emily Smith and all of the officers of Unit 215A for their superb effort in this operation," said INS Officer Young. "Your agency was the most vital part of the most successful effort ever undertaken by this office against criminal aliens in North Carolina."
