Federal officials have declined to say how many pregnant customers they encountered in searches conducted on Tuesday of more than 50 locations suspected of involvement in three large "maternity tourism" networks in Southern California. No arrests have been made as of Thursday, said Virginia Kice, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, or ICE. She declined to say how many if any of the women would end up staying long enough to give birth in the United States now that the schemes were exposed but suggested some were likely to remain in California as the investigation progresses.
