Hundreds Arrested in Nationwide Crackdown

Hundreds of illegal immigrants are behind bars after a nationwide crackdown on undocumented workers. At least one of those arrests was in Lubbock.

One of the largest raids was in Houston at a company called IFCO but raids also took place in Oregon and New York. Indictments are also expected against IFCO executives who are accused of hiring the undocumented workers.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff will hold a news conference Thursday.
