U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided 7-Eleven stores in MI and 17 other states and cities before dawn Wednesday to interview employees and deliver audit notifications, carrying out what the agency said was the largest operation targeting of an employer since President Donald Trump took office.
Federal statistics show that under the Trump administration, arrests of suspected illegal immigrants have risen by 40 percent. "ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration".
ICE agents targeted a total of 98 7-Eleven convenience stores in the raids. The company has more than 8,600 stores across the country.
The company later released a statement in relation to the hiring practices at its franchises.
"This obligation requires 7-Eleven franchisees to verify work eligibility in the USA for all of their prospective employees prior to hiring", the company noted in a statement to the press.
"As part of the 7-Eleven franchise agreement, 7-Eleven requires all franchise business owners to comply with all federal, state and local employment laws", the statement continued.
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. "This is what we're gearing up for this year, and what you're going to see more and more of is these large-scale compliance inspections, just for starters", he said. News reports said that no charges against businesses were filed yesterday, but during the raid its official interviewed store owners and its employees.
The inspection notice, technically known as an I-9 audit, allows ICE agents to inspect government forms that verify employees' identity and their authorization to work within the United States.
President Trump has made tackling illegal immigration a priority.
