More than 280 employees of a north Texas telecommunications repair company were arrested by federal immigration officials in the largest worksite operation in more than a decade, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.

ICE's Homeland Security Investigations unit executed criminal search warrants Wednesday at CVE Technology Group and four related businesses. CVE is based in Allen, about 25 miles north of Dallas.

"The investigation is ongoing but we can disclose that this is the largest ICE worksite operation at one site in the last 10 years," said Katrina Berger, HSI Dallas Special Agent in Charge.

She said the agency began the investigation in January after receiving multiple tips that the company may have knowingly hired illegal immigrants, many of whom were using fraudulent identification documents.

 

I know of this company, they repair IPhones etc.

I think these are the same people, or part of the same group and it is about quality of the repairs but touches on the employment practices.

We now have the totally weird situation of a Californian City suing the Feds for releasing Asylum Seekers, I thought CA was a Sanctuary State?

I can tell you from experience, they not only knew, I am sure they recruited the illegal community well. Once you hire a few, the word spreads like fire

I looked at the fines for working and hiring illegal aliens, it seems as if since Trump took over they do not publish them anymore


Just when you think you have TDS eradicate,  a new case shows up.
