ICE said the 51 people were all male citizens and/or nationals of several different countries across the globe, including Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Indonesia, Guatemala, South Korea, Iraq, Jamaica, India, Pakistan and Jordan.
Three of the four remaining individuals have pending charges against them; one is the subject of an Interpol Red Notice.
One person was issued a final order of removal by an immigration judge in January 2015, making him a priority for civil immigration enforcement, ICE said.
“Every person apprehended during this operation was considered an immigration enforcement priority, as outlined in the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s 2014 memorandum” said ERO Washington Field Office Director Yvonne Evans.
“This is another example of our success in targeted, strategic operations based on our top priorities for removal,” she added.
