LOS ANGELES (Jan. 22) - With Super Bowl Sunday just days away, federal immigration officials in San Diego have arrested ''a number'' of foreign-born residents with access to the game's venue, Qualcomm Stadium, in an unprecedented security crackdown, officials said Wednesday.

Arab-American groups estimated at least 36 people have been detained -- mostly Middle Eastern and Latino workers who were security guards or concession workers at the stadium.
