Which 7-Elevens in Pa. were raided by ICE this week?

Which 7-Elevens in Pa. were raided by ICE this week?

Wednesday's action focused on franchise owners and managers suspected of hiring illegal workers, though ICE said that any illegal worker encountered during the operations could face administrative actions and deportation.

ICE said that raids occurred in 17 states and Washingon, D.C., and that 1,360 similar raids occurred past year, netting 139 criminal arrests and 172 "administrative" arrests, likely for civil immigration violations. News reports said that no charges against businesses were filed yesterday, but during the raid its official interviewed store owners and its employees.

In a statement, 7-Eleven Inc, based in Irving, Texas, distanced itself from the situation, saying that the individual stores are franchises that belong to independent business owners, who "are exclusively responsible for their employees, including deciding who to hire and verifying their eligibility to work in the United States".

ICE spokesman Adrian Smith declined to answer additional questions, such as whether anyone from the Hellertown store was arrested or where the other Pennsylvania 7-Elevens targeted by the operation were located.

Homan also revealed that there would be more such crackdowns and serious action will be taken against those violating the law.

Despite ICE's intention to crack down on the employment of undocumented immigrants, ICE told the Post that the operation was a follow-up to a 2013 arrest of nine 7-Eleven franchise operators.

This comes at a time of a surge in immigration arrests.

Officials told WWJ Newsradio 950 one person was arrested in the metro Detroit investigations; among a total of 21 people arrested nationwide. And under him, ICE has reportedly made almost 40 percent more arrests.

Arrests for non-criminal immigration violations rose more than 50 percent compared to previous year. "For those that don't, we're going to take some very aggressive steps in terms of criminal investigations to make sure that we address them and hold them accountable".

"This is ICE sending the message to employers you're on the hook, too, not just the workers, who enable or encourage unauthorized immigration", Snyder said. "It's about removing that magnet".

Each of the stores targeted by ICE received a notice of inspection, which requires store owners to provide proof of all of their workers' legal status to work in the United States when agents return to the stores later this week.

Trump is pursuing "its own kind of unique strategy" tied to its broader emphasis on fighting illegal immigration, including enforcement on the border, Benner said.
