U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested 20 people this week in Miami-Dade and Broward after they were accused of attempting to defraud immigration authorities by posing as Cuban migrants.

The arrests Tuesday and Wednesday resulted from an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, an ICE unit, in conjunction with Customs and Border Protection and the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service.
