Federal agents raid Arizona carwashes
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 AZcentral.com 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.
