Four of the seven Brazilians taken into custody after a traffic stop Wednesday in Keene had prior arrests for immigration violations and a federal judge had issued warrants to have them deported.

"They had outstanding warrants, which means they will be removed from the U.S.," said Paula M. Grenier, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. "They're in our custody now."

The other three Brazilians have been charged with their first immigration violations.

Their cases will go to Immigration Court in Boston, where a federal judge will decide whether they should be deported, Grenier said.
