OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — U.S. immigration officials say 40 people have been arrested in Oklahoma and Texas as part of a nationwide investigation into human trafficking that led to 637 arrests nationwide.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Carl Rusnok in Dallas said Thursday that 25 were arrested in Dallas, 12 in Oklahoma City and 3 in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton, Texas, as part of an investigation called “Project Nefarious” that began in February.

The ICE office in Dallas covers all of Oklahoma and 128 counties in northern Texas.
