US immigration agents raid 100 stores largely owned by Indians in US

The US immigration authorities raided nearly 100 Seven-Eleven stores, largely owned by Indian-Americans, arrested more than 21 people and warned businesses against employing illegal immigrants.

The nation-wide crackdown is said to be part of the effort of the Trump administration to warn businesses against hiring illegal immigrants.

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), whose officials carried out the raid in 18 States and the District of Columbia, arrested more than 21 people. But the ICE did not identify the nationalities of those arrested.

A large number of 7-Eleven convenience stores in the US are owned by Indian-Americans. The 21 employees from various stores arrested on charges of being illegal now faces deportation.

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. The company has more than 8,600 stores across the country.
