ICE Arrests Hundreds in Biggest Workplace Immigration Raid in a Decade
On Wednesday, nearly 300 people were arrested at a worksite raid in what Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has called the “biggest workplace immigration raid in a decade.” The raid at a Dallas-area receiving warehouse owned and operated by New Jersey based CVE Group Inc., a technology products company, was led by DHS’ Homeland Security Investigations (“HIS”) unit, with a team of over 200 federal agents.
DHS officials said the “people arrested for working in the United States illegally came from 15 different countries on multiple continents and were employed refurbishing used cellphones.” Many provided fraudulent or fake documents to the employer.
