40 Migrants Detained in Raids on US Restaurant Chain

Tucson (US), April 21 (IANS/EFE) A total of 40 workers, presumably undocumented immigrants, and the owners of a Mexican restaurant chain were arrested Wednesday in raids by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

At daybreak, agents carried out synchronised raids on 15 restaurants of the Chuy's Mesquite Broiler chain, 14 of them in Arizona and one in California.

Vincent Picard, the ICE spokesman in Arizona, told EFE that 40 workers were arrested in the operation.

"Some of them might serve as witnesses in the case," he said.

The spokesman said that ICE lends a hand to workers who have small children and no family member to look after them.
