Federal agents raid Arizona carwashes

August 19, 2013
PHOENIX, AZ — Federal agents raided Danny’s Family Car Wash following a two-year investigation into allegations of immigration fraud, identity theft and financial violations.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents swooped in on 16 Danny’s locations throughout the Valley.

ICE officials declined comment on specifics in the story because the indictment was sealed in U.S. Federal Court.

ICE Spokeswoman Amber Cargile did say that members of the carwash management were arrested in connection with the case.

“Since 2009, ICE has kind of shifted its work-site enforcement strategy, so we focus now on the arrest of the employers and managers [and] supervisors rather than coming in with these large-scale enforcement actions that focus solely on workers,” Cargile said.  

The defendants will appear in U.S. Federal Court today.
