Immigration agents target 7-Eleven stores in 17 states

RTX36A43

Officials with 7-Eleven issued the following statement: "We are aware of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) actions taken at certain franchise locations".

In a statement, 7-Eleven Inc said its stores operate independently on a franchisee basis but they are required to adhere to all federal and local laws. "ICE will enforce the law, and if you are found to be breaking the law, you will be held accountable".

"ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration", he continued.

DOL's practices contradict Inslee's executive order last February that Washington remains a state that "doesn't utilize state employees as agents of federal immigration services", as well as State Attorney General Bob Ferguson's demand for privacy for undocumented immigrants in his suit against Motel 6 over its release of guest lists to federal agents of ICE.

Homan added that employment opportunities offered by businesses that hire illegal workers are a factor that drives illegal immigration.

Derek N. Benner, another top ICE official, warned that Wednesdays's raids were "a harbinger of what's to come". "From there, we will look at whether these cases warrant an administrative posture or criminal investigation".

Immigration sweep hits 7-Eleven

"When we talk about targeting employers, that's auditing employers to see if they followed those rules". Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, said Wednesday events offered "a good sign" that the administration was serious about going after employers. The notices of inspection, also known as I-9 audit notices, were served on stores in Washington, D.C., and in California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington.

Authorities said at least one person was arrested after ICE conducted immigration raids at 98 convenient stores nationwide.

Representatives for 7-Eleven say they take immigration laws "seriously" and terminate the franchise rights of independent owners who hire undocumented immigrants.

Eight of the accused wound up pleading guilty and were ordered to pay more than $2.6 million in back wages.

President Trump ran on a campaign promise to prevent USA business from employing undocumented workers. The ninth was arrested in November.
