Hello

Apprehension of illegally staying migrants

Would it be correct to say in german:

Der Aufgriff illegal aufhältiger Migranten?

Or would it be better to say: das Aufgreifen?

    Festnahme illegaler Migranten

    This would apply if the police arrests someone.

    "Das Aufgreifen" is less legalese, less specific and more general. "Der Aufgriff" doesn't work.

    In English too, the police will often take a suspect to the police station. They are only arrested later if the suspicions proved founded.
    Illegalen, die bei nichterlaubter Arbeit von der Polizei aufgegriffen werden, droht die Ausweisung.
    Picked up in this example, not arrested. This possibly has something to do with how long someone can be detained by the police without being charged.
