(AFP) US immigration agents raided nearly 100 7-Eleven convenience stores around the country Wednesday, sending a warning to businesses not to hire illegal immigrants, officials said.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested 21 undocumented immigrants in the raids of 7-Eleven franchises in 17 states and the capital, they said, amid a broad crackdown by the year-old administration of President Donald Trump.

“Today’s actions send a strong message to US businesses that hire and employ an illegal workforce: ICE will enforce the law, and if you are found to be breaking the law, you will be held accountable,” said ICE Deputy Director Thomas Homan.

“Businesses that hire illegal workers are a pull factor for illegal immigration and we are working hard to remove this magnet,” he said in a statement.

“ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration.”

Ninety-eight stores were targeted in Wednesday’s raids.

Texas-based 7-Eleven Inc. said it was not responsible for the hiring practices of its franchise owners.

“7-Eleven Franchisees are independent business owners and are solely responsible for their employees, including deciding who to hire and verifying their eligibility to work in the United States,” the company said.

“7-Eleven takes compliance with immigration laws seriously and has terminated the franchise agreements of franchisees convicted of violating these laws.”

ICE and its sister agency, US Customs and Border Protection, have stepped up arrests and deportations of illegal border crossers since Trump came to power in January 2017.

Trump made cracking down on immigration a key plank in his election platform, cutting back on legal as well as illegal arrivals in the country and promising to build a wall along the Mexican border.

Earlier this week, the government removed special protected status for about 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants living in the United States for at least 17 years, giving them 18 months to leave the country unless Congress says otherwise.

    It is about time that our Government takes enforcing our laws seriously and removes the Foreign Criminal Invaders from our soil , I work at a Convenience Store , My Company uses E-Verify to insure the Foreign Parasites are not hired in the first place

    • rennyangel2

      I would rather they go afterHB-1 and -2 punks from India and China taking over our IT indudstries and bringing in their “brethren” to keep out Am. workers. But all illegals are a depressant on jobs and wages.

      • Somanywhiners

        Isn’ amazing how many India nationals are in the IT field,especially when they have only the knowledge of an American highschool student. India’s colleges are pitiful.

      • Craig Vandertie

        Every time ai have problems with my e-mail account or any website I blame those puke HB-1 foreigners, not nearly as well trained as those received an education here in the U.S., of course these days I wonder if that is true, professors seem to spend more time brainwashing their students with Socialist Moonie Muslime propaganda.

        • teachersaide

          You think that is bad? YOU should have the ones who are supposedly “providing” service to callers, with on line problems, who can barely speak English! Same goes for those who are “telemarketers”.

        • rennyangel2

          The indoctrinators are in the liberal arts, busy wrecking literature, history, and the arts. They are not very influential in the STEM fields because we cannot afford to have planes falling out of the air or bridges collapsing because they were built according to “feminist math” (it does exist) instead of real data and science.

      • Tim

        you really don’t mean rather, you must mean also

  • Maxine Albritton

    well, if they are forbidden to take them from Jails where else to find them, seven eleven works. I hope they deport the lot of them.

    • teachersaide

      Where else to find them? Washing dishes in MANY restaurants, working as maids in LARGE numbers of hotels/motels, Picking up their children from School (especially Preschool, Head Start since their kids don’t SPEAK or understand English!), going to the LOCAL Free Store/ Food Bank for whatever they can get, FREE Clinics, ER’S, etc.

      • Maxine Albritton

        I have been out of the school system for now eighteen years, used to be a teacher )(retired) thank God. Since I live in Fl. we have in the past had an influx of migrants from Mexico mostly back then. We would get kids in their early teens that have not even had a full year of education. They could not put some as they were not always tall in junior high so sometimes they put them in elementary school, of course English was not their language either. We had the English as a second language migrant program. We usually kept them for a year or so then passed them on. I had ESE exceptional student class. My two girls even though not the brightest functioned better than their parents. So when they took their younger child to the doctor they would interpret for the parents. These girls were fourth and fifth graders. In Mexico going to school must not have been a requirement back than but a priviledge. Most people in this country do not appreciate this priviledge.

    Now where am I supposed to get a hot dog that can chip your teeth? Thanks ICE… no really thanks…

        Well as long as they don’t shut down Coca Cola and their secret acid ingredient they won’t mumble too hard

        • Mountain_Dew_518

          Start selling Gummy Bears. Go through the drive through and order up a Coca Cola with a side of Gummy Bears. Reckon they will burn the Gummy Bears? LOL

          • Gregg Parker

            LOL… yeah…some of the crazy people in this country would burn their mother if you write em a check… anything not to work for a living

          • Mountain_Dew_518

            I agree & you sure got that right.

    • Erik V Johnson

      Or Hepatitis !!!

  • Imagine, enforcing laws. What a novel idea. Too bad Obama never figured that out.

    • Deplorable Lanie

      He would have had to read the Constitution not just teach it!!!

      • Deplorable Lanie,

        He relied on the Supreme Court’s interpretation. Not a good plan.

        • Deplorable Lanie

          I am not sure Obama EVER took the Constitution into consideration for anything he did! I mean DACA was just an end run around Congress and the Constitution so they could encourage non citizens to vote. Did you see the interview he did with a young legal immigrant who asked about non citizens voting? Instead of saying “no it is a felony for non citizens to vote”; he basically said that ICE would not be looking at voter registration rolls, so they could vote without fear of discovery! He ENCOURAGED non citizen voting!

            His plan was to destroy the Constitution.

          • Deplorable Lanie,

            I am not so sure you are “deplorable” except to Democrats. I agree with your understanding of Obama. He has to be the most deplorable president we have ever had. I do not miss him.

    • nocbsfan

      Obama knew what enforcing the law was he knew exactly how get around it, after all he spent a great deal of his life in Chicago where the experts live

      • Can I change “experts” to “crooks”?

        • nocbsfan

          You know Jerry, I think you are right. We don’t have experts anymore, just crooks.. That is except for you and I.

          • But of course. God did create some nice guys along the way.

          • nocbsfan

            Well just WHO besides you and I, and maybe Moses

          • Nah, Moses got shut out of entering what would become Israel because he was a bad boy. He had done his job and left earth for a better place. I am getting closer to that same predicament. So now, are ewe gooder than me or the other way around? Fortunately good or bad does not count.

          • nocbsfan

            Nah we are about the same almost like brothers and almost the same age

          • OK, I’m the bad guy then. I even have a pack of Grouch Aids. No kidding.

          • nocbsfan

            You are not the bad guy I don’t care many grouch aids you have

          • I have a lifesaver rapper full of grouch aids. The only problem is that they have been in the rapper for years.
            White man speak with forked tongue.

          • nocbsfan

            Very true but only if you are a democrat, lets not be racially biased lets just include all democrats no matter what their race, creed or their favorite fairy tale author

          • That should have been wrapper. No racial bias on wrapped Grouch Aids. Some days my computer does not spell well. I just got a new one, too.

          • nocbsfan

            If you use a wrapper then you have to put a bow on it.. What did you get for a new computer

          • Sorry, no bow on the Grouch Aids. I got an HP with lots of power and storage, both of which are add ons.

          • nocbsfan

            Okay you have lots of power, how much I may get one myself and need to know what works?

          • It depends on what you do. I have hundreds of photos on mine so I need more than I had with the old computer. I was using up my 300 GB storage so I got 1TB storage now. I also got 8 GB of RAM where I had 2 GB before. and 250 GB storage which I had about sued up. I used to get terrible buffering but now I get none. Buffering is when you get the little circle that runs around a lot before anything comes up on the screen. I get none now.

            If you are just doing emails and not a lot more, you can get a lot less that is cheaper. My HP cost me $650 with the added RAM and hard drive. My old computer was about 12 years old and totally out of date. It had been in the fixit shop three times.

          • nocbsfan

            The 8 gb ram is what I am interested in storage you can plug in with exterior hdrive if you have to course built in works better but you can get 5 tigs and plug in Now do you use a desk top or lap top or none of my business LOL really want to know about 8 GB RAM I was thinking 12 or even 16 and should not ever have to worry again but that what I thought last time I get lots of buffer and very shaky movement with 4GB RAM which says my RAM is being used up

          • I have a desk top as I am used to the tilted keyboard and the separate mouse. But I do wish I had a laptop. I am considering a chrome book that has 4GB RAM but only 100GB storage or less as I would download a photos program and then use it on a big screen. I would delete the photo program when done as I can always load it again in minutes. I have about 20 photos shows that I can use. One is on Canada and one is on China.

          • nocbsfan

            Gee interesting your going to convince me to go to Idaho yet, souunds like a nice rig Jerry I would like to know how that 8 gigs of RAM are working for you

          • So far my computer is quite fast. No buffering whatsoever.

          • nocbsfan

            I get a lot of buffering drives you nuts

          • That is clear evidence your computer is out of date. I struggles with that for the last 2-3 years. Now the computer is quite fast.

          • nocbsfan

            Slow as I type speed isn’t necessary anyway

          • I am advanced hunt and peck myself.

          • nocbsfan

            I don’t hunt and peck just have stiff fingers and one finger that doesn’t work at all sometimes I will hit three keys with it then have to go back and edit there takes the time

          • I am grateful for spell check. It takes me longer to fix a sentence than it does to type it.

          • nocbsfan

            So who do you think your are join the crowd old man I spend more time editing than I do typing

          • Vel, Ole, join the crowd. Ize an expert at correcting text. I just have one on this last sentence. Nope, I thought I had an error but I didn’t.

          • nocbsfan

            I will have to take your word for it but it does look like to me there is an arrow

          • Arrow or error. My Native American Cherokee comes out now and then. My mother was a bout 1/10 Cherokee. I am mostly Norweigan, British and German. Actually 99% BS.

          • nocbsfan

            Understand that 99% always thought of myself well you know. My Grand mother was half Cherokee she said. Guess that is where I get my sneakiness from.

          • My mother always said she was half Cherokee and she did have an Indian nose. But she turned out as a Williams to be related to Roger Williams who was the governor of Rhode Island during the founding and future of a colony in New England. It turns out she was about 10% Cherokee.

          • nocbsfan

            Who knows maybe she owns Half of Manhattan You could own Don Trump

          • I have it on good authority that she was not wealthy. She was also only 4 ft. 6 in. tall. She was also feisty.

          • nocbsfan

            This computer is about to quit. Anyway your mother sounds just like my grand mother same height and build and really feisty and a really good cook You did good Jerry

          • My mother was a concert pianist and not a good cook. But we managed. Dad was a good cook. He usually made breakfast.

          • nocbsfan

            Wow that would be something this little woman wowing everyone with that great big Piano. My mother couldn’t cook and as far as I know couldn’t even whistle, but she was cute ( that is what my father always said) but she did take good care of her kids Both of my Grand Mothers were excellent cooks so I didn’t have to worry about dinner

          • My mother did not whistle either. She could do basic cooking but she was foremost a pianist. She also played the organ and used to play the organ with the sound stops for silent movies. She had a masters from Washington State University in music. She tried to teach her kids how to play the piano. I flunked. But I did play brass instruments in Jr. high and high school. Since then I have only played hooky.

          • nocbsfan

            Well you had to learn how to play the game you knew best and the one you would know the least from..My father played the violin but he wasn’t a teacher of social things he was an electrical engr he tried to teach me about electric but I just don’t like being shocked

          • I shut off the power to a house once and still got shocked. The box I needed to access was on a separate line and I had no idea it was on a separate line. I got zapped good. Good thing there is nothing between my ears.

          • nocbsfan

            Guess I am a little more cautious than you I kill the breaker and test it with a volt ohm meter If there is any current going through I will know it (course I got this from my Father) He had a way of touching both wires and if it shocked him he turned something more off If I help him I tested it myself cause if he got you energized he would laugh

          • What is your source of power for your computer? That can be a factor as well. I have Century Link. They can be marginal in some places. Boise is one of them but so far I get enough power to avoid buffing. Your idea of thinking head is a good idea. Yes, you can buy los of storage devices. They tend to go sour in time. I have a backup company. If I were to have a backup drive I would get two and store two copies regularly, like weekly.

          • nocbsfan

            I use a company called Newwave my internet is 10 megs , should be faster but this computer is so loaded I don’t think it would matter how may megs you have I remember some time ago I was using a brad new computer wit 100 megs and it was lightning fast It had already acted before I could turn the key loose They want to much money now for that real fast stuff and who needs it for home use well going to keep an eye on you and see how all this works out

          • An 8 GB computer is plenty fast for present day use. But so was my 3GB computer 10 years ago. I doubt your service of 10 MB is hurting you but maybe. I have had very good success with my service.

          • nocbsfan

            Yes 8GB is good enough for todays computers , but like always wont do for tomorrow so I am going to live along time , and need 12 GB for tomorrows operating systems, and probably need 500 Megs just to make it work

          • Well, we never know. I am likely expire in 5-6 years as that is the usual time for males in my family. So, I likely have no more than perhaps 3 years left on the computer. I think my 8 MG hard drive is adequate but ya never know these days.

          • nocbsfan

            If your right then I have a lot of years left one member went 102 who knows Jerry maybe you will go that far boy will computer be out of date

          • Well, I have to make it to 114 to win the lottery. You gonna help me spend it? I am already too old for wine, women and song. And yes, at 102 you should plan on a 32GB computer. But by then we may have a whole new system for messages. Computers may be outdated by then.

    Don’t they know that McDonalds is the largest employer of illegals?

    • Sam Raman

      How about Dunkin..Donuts, Krausers, Hotels, Motels, Pizza places, ware houses, Asian, Hispanic restaurants, Delis, grocery shops, farms, scores of small businesses…where many many undocumented aliens are employed. That is because most American citizens do NOT like to petform such menial, below $10/hr pay, dirty, difficult jobs. Look at the overflowing US jails to see how many US Citizens are there.

      • pappy450

        Speak for yourself. I have worked MANY jobs that were “difficult”,”dirty” and below $10.00 an hour. You have to have a “work ethic”, AMBITION and PRIDE, which is quite low today because the DEMOCOMMUNISTS have made it more “profitable” to sit on your BUTT and make MORE money and “benefits”. (nice way for the “government” to keep track of you and under their thumb) Welfare today has turned from a “hand up” into a “Handout”. BUT it looks like OUR President Trump is beginning to put an END to the OSCUMBAG “rule” with “welfare reform”. And GOOD for him!

        • Sam Raman

          I agree. Work ethics and attitude makes a big difference in life. To keep an inmate in US jail, it costs over $5000/inmate per month. Add to that legal cost of the process to bring them to justice. During last 8 years (2008-2016) thousands of refugees had poured into USA adding to the Govt. budget. Poverty, terrorism, 16 years of War on terror, reckless destruction of infrastructure in bombings had displaced over 30 Million people in many Nations. Thousands had arrived as Refugees in USA, Europe, UK etc. It is like throwing a stone at a beehive. In many States in USA, the FED had allowed issue of driver licenses to illegals. admission in Schools and even bank accounts. Legalization of non criminal aliens (undocumented) is the first step in the process. Then comes…Ty.Work Visas. We all live in a global environment. We are lucky to have the US$ as World Reserve Currency.

          ‘The Great Society, War on Poverty’ made a profession, a career out of Welfare. Buying votes [only Democrat] was the purpose, funded by the hapless taxPayers.

          Perpetually dependency addicted Feral relationships, with random spawn of endless lust with no consequences, centered on crime and drugs, became the nanny govt financed American way of life…. and death.

          Naturally the blame is placed on the ‘tool’ which is used on the victims. The ‘gun’, to the leftists of the world, is the problem.

          Unless of course [according to Bloomberg and associates, funded mayors across the USA] it is restricted to…. their hands only.

          • Fed up!

            If you think your suppose to live off of $10 per hour your as stupid as they come. It was never designed to raise a family on.

          • blogengeezer

            We have fourth generations {they learn to ‘breed’ at an early age… without no stinkin’ marriage} existing on the endlessly subsidized lifestyle, Govt dole, enhanced by section eight. EBT, stamps, ADC [sperm donor males are killed in turf wars].

            If not killed, only wounded, the ‘Gangsta’ males [including profusely tatted and pierced females] immediately seek permanent disability added to the take.

            It is the way of life in many villages, counties across our southern border state of NM. They have discovered that it sure beats anything difficult…, by a long shot.

            So well provided, in comparison to from whence they came, that the border crossings are continuous. Oh, failed to mention we do not have a regulated voter ID system, well other than ‘mother may I’. Result is a solid voting Democrat state.

            That fact alone should please the rest of the perpetually dependency addicted….

            Oh, did I fail to mention, the crime stats [violent] are among the highest in the nation? Of course by Democrat mentality, it is all the fault of the ‘Guns’.

            Sounds like your solution for utopia, the
            Democrat agenda, is to just give everyone at least $40 an hour free, with free medical, free housing and all of the perks included, and life will be all rosy?

            Should have let Hillary keep her competition Bernie in the running. He promised a free ride… for everyone. Every Democrat would have voted for ‘Free stuff’ Bernie.

            Of course he never held a real job, but now is quite comfortable…., after getting some political notoriety. Maybe next election? The Democrats would be ecstatic… or not.

          • Tim

            why do you want to take away entry level jobs where people learn work ethics.
            If you are still in that same entry level job after a year you must have either a poor work ethic or a poor attitude. And you are correct it was never designed to support a family. If you are still at that entry level job keep your pants on and avoid having a family.
            I am not sure what your point was
            but I hope that this clears it up

      • Deplorable Lanie

        The problem is people like you telling others that it is somehow beneath them to work entry level jobs. It is ridiculous that people who have never worked or only worked certain jobs feel that they should be paid exorbitant salaries or hourly wages. When I started working I waited tables for 2.01 per hour plus tips. Now those same jobs are supposed to pay $15 /hour??? That is the problem Dems have filled everyones heads with kool-aid and they are drinking like they can’t get enough. Like the former CEO of McDonald’s said on Fox News, he started out at minimum wage and learnedand worked hard and was promoted all the way to CEO!

          SKILL…development is vital for growth as an Individual and as a Nation. After WW II, est. 30 million Refugees came from EUROPE to USA hoping for a better life. America saw great depression too when people stood in queue for a loaf of bread. Then came the Industrial revolution that made America an industrial power. Manufacturing…is vital for any nation to grow as its population grows. In last 30 years, the US consumer goods industry had been gradually wiped out as the Govt. concentrated on WAR than commerce. We live today buying “Made in China” goods. US higher education is unaffordable. Technology had displaced thousands of humans from jobs. The drive by..concept and automation had eliminated thousands of jobs. Outsourcing had eliminated back end service jobs. When PROFIT becomes the motive, PEOPLE get pushed behind. There should be NO TAX on any item that sells below $2.00 and no income tax up to $50,000 /yr. A $10.00/hr is a low wage to survive today. By tax exemption, spending money and jobs are created. Why do we see VACANT strip malls today..?? City of DETROIT..filed for bankruptcy in 2013. Do you know why..?

          • andnowyoudont

            “no income tax up to $50k/yr” NOPE, I disagree. EVERYONE should have “skin in the game”– however small. Every citizen needs to contribute. People don’t value what they don’t pay for. And, initially, only landowners were enfranchised. These days, perhaps, only taxpayers should be.

          • bendecido

            I agree with you wholeheartedly. How is America supposed to keep up to date our infrastructure. If no one pays taxes, do not expect to participate in the coming tax cuts. Just like the saying goes: No Work, No Eat.

            Kwame Kilpatrick? For just one. The rest is history. happens often when ‘The People’ demand far more than a society can provide.

            History is a bugger. Winners and losers. The USA, an historic experiment in Christianity, has been unappreciated by it’s own Citizens, while a relative haven, sought by the world’s masses….. for way too many years.

          I did the same thing , but in Aerospace…..AFTER I fulfilled my Military Obligation of 8 years of Military Service, 4 years on active duty, and then 4 years in “Reserves” where we were subject to being immediate recall to active duty in a National Emergency……..Wah……to the “crybabies” that don’t want to work for a living!

            Then There’s The Other End of the Scale…I Was a Aerospace Designer ( BOEING and McDonald Douglas ) I Even Designed the Arms to the Mobile Transporter Robot on the ISS…And The ( Like BOEING Mechanics Union ) Would Strike Most Every Year and End Up Making MORE Than Me AND They Have NO Degrees at All !!! just sayin

            The LEFT NEVER acknowledges “responsibilities”- ONLY “rights”.

      • Robert Stotts

        If you take the incentive away to not work you would see American Citizens working.

      • I worked in many of those jobs when I was young and starting out. Those jobs used to be where most young people broke into the workforce and got some experience to move up to better jobs.

      • Tim

        As I said before all corporations that franchise should have a clause in the agreement that stipulate if you break a law, you lose your franchise.

  • Wondering Woman

    Hello President Trump and ICE,

    Lets get this usurping illegal ineligible our of our hair the easiest way. Run his SSN through E verify again and since it has already failed 3 times, it will likely fail again. Lock him up and deport him ASAP!

  • pappy450

    About DAMN TIME. The “owners” as well as the “employers” should be arrested and ALSO prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
    No more “excuses” that they “didn’t know” What the franchise owner were “doing”. As WE were also told from the time we could understand the English “language” being ignorant of the “LAW” is NOT an excuse. You break it, you pay. THAT IS, like today, UNLESS YOU ARE A DEMOCOMMUNIST/ RINO. Then there always seems to be another “set” of laws for YOU.

    • Tim

      I love that 7-Eleven corp is pulling franchises from those that break the law.
      When are other corps going to get onboard

  • rocky63

    Well-done ICE!! Good to see your job being done and our laws applied. Be careful, stay safe — but get rid of the illegals as fast and as completely as you can. It’s been repeatedly proven that illegals in the US commit crimes at a much higher percentage than legal citizens.

    • Tim

      good idea for ICE to focus on businesses.
      eliminate the jobs than the illegals will deport themselves

      • rocky63

        Good point, Tim. We all need to support ICE in doing their legal jobs.AND, WHENEVER WE CAN, WE NEED TO OPPOSE “SANCTUARY CITY AND STATE” crap.

    Trump is making America great again, FOR AMERICANS

    Thank you ICE. Thank you Customs and Border. American Patriots appreciate you!

  • Yosemite Sam

    TRUMP is fundamentally transforming America back to her original roots. Hard work without overbearing government intrusion. Governments useful purpose is to protect America’s borders, protect American citizenry, and utilize the full power of law enforcement to rid America of those who violate American sovereignty.

    • Tim

      I love it great play on Obama’s words

  • Yarbles

    Now, take em out and shoot em.

  • Glock Guy

    That’s right, ship them all out. And then they can hire Americans, high school kid’s and college students the ones that can’t find jobs and still live with their parents.

    • Tim

      you mean the ones who follow BLM and/or ANTIFA because they have nothing else to do besides vote for Bernie

    NO DACA. NO DACA. NO DACA. NO DACA

    • teachersaide

      NOT crazy about DACA, but IF it will get US a southern Border wall, increased Border patrol agents, a workable VISA system where those who Overstay their Visas are rapidly deported, ends chain migration & Visa lottery, etc, I can “tolerate” it. However, DACA is ONLY for those Who QUALIFY! NOT for DACA “kids” Parents, grandparents, aunts, cousins, etc. MS 13 gets deported NO MATTER WHAT! As a matter of fact, would NOT be surprised if this latest cancellation of “sanctuary” for El Salvadorans is NOT a “ploy” by Trump to FORCE El Salvador to take back their Murdering, raping, torturing Miscreants.

      • Cancel_NPR

        NO DACA…
        Regardless…
        It is JUST ANOTHER compromise…
        STOP compromising with democrats who are SEEKING ONLY MORE VOTERS who will line up with them…

      • Tim

        stop thinking with your emotions
        If they are allowed to stay
        Think what message are we sending to others who are thinking about coming to America Illegally.
        If they can stay why don’t I try and maybe I can stay as well
        Just saying

    100 Stores in 17 States and only 21 ILLEGALS?? How much did this smoke-and-mirrors, dog-and-pony-show cost the taxpayers? What a bunch of “Maroons”!! How about RAIDING MEX RESTAURANTS and FOOD PROCESSING PLANTS?? GEEZ!! (When asked why he robbed banks, he replied “Because that’s where the money is”.)

    • seen it all

      And 4 years to investigate….

    • dimdemsrout

      The dirtbag owners of those 100 stores were probably tipped off, and 21 was all ICE found!

  • dimdemsrout

    “Giving the illegals 18 months to get out…UNLESS CONgress says otherwise”! First off CONgress had damn well better not “say otherwise”… and secondly…a year, and a half…bullshist, ship ’em out immediately!

    • Craig Vandertie

      The longer they are allowed to remain the longer they have to hide among the masses a technique they have been using for decades.

  • Robert Wayne

    You rarely see Americans working in these convenience stores. It’s always foreigners.

    • dimdemsrout

      AND OWNING them!

      • andnowyoudont

        Not to mention cheaper hotels and motels. Yep, almost all foreigners.

        • dimdemsrout

          Yup, and gas stations, Dunkin Donuts, etc, etc!

      • Robert Wayne

        And you can bet it’s we American taxpayers who are footing the bill so that the feds can set these lousy foreigners up in business. Every damned DemoRAT and neocon RINO phony in office are enemies of the American taxpayer.

        • dimdemsrout

          Now there’s a safe bet!!

        • Artemis

          Go Robert…you get a “Super” attaboy for that one tell it the way it is!

  • dimdemsrout

    Hey ICE, now you should go after Star_ucks…”up to 10,000″ is what they want!

  • John

    Lets go to the convenience stores in the morning and check out the landscapers and other labor using businesses that use the illegals. Also the development sites.

  • Yosemite Sam

    In Trump’s America [my America] illegal aliens need to be legalized back into their country of origin, not the USA. Thank God for President Donald J Trump. MAGA

  • Lou

    I bet welfare recipients would drop by another 2 million if they were deported

    • bill14729 .

      Yeah could save some $$$$$$$$$$$$ to put towards the wall

    • teachersaide

      I’d bet HIGHER than that! CIS stats show that 51% of ALL illegal aliens are getting some form of WELFARE &/or FREE Healthcare, including Organ Transplants!

  • Alan404

    This country made TEMPORARY accommodation to people from elSalvador. Fair enough. When does TEMPORARY end?

  • John

    Any person, company or organization that hires, harbors or helps illegals should be held accountable. Aiding and abetting criminals as well as obstructing justice is a crime. LOCK THEM UP

  • Archie Cogollos

    No good deed goes unpunished….trade deals, Iran, Nato, U.N……the party’s over…no more ..and never again…

  • ej harbet

    This is one of the many reasons I voted for and will again vote for trump.I do think the employers of the illegals should be forced to replace them with American citizens or green card holders,or be jailed and deported with their ex employee s

  • ADRoberts

    Enforce the laws. File charges against Democrats when they leak information.
    Sessions said that he has 27 investigations into politicians and bureaucrats LEAKING.
    JAIL TIME.

    So much for Apu at Kwiki-Mart!

  • just care

    It’s too bad that they only arrested the employees. They should have checked the customers too.

  • Sol_of_Texas

    Is 21% considered the new benchmark number estimating illegal interlopers in America?

    • andnowyoudont

      Not 21 PER CENT– 21 ILLEGALS. Only 21 invaders rounded up in 17 states at 98 Seven-Elevens. Taxpayers have been robbed again.

      • Sol_of_Texas

        They didn’t check the entire population of the 17 states. I gathered the 98 stores spanned 17 states.

        So 21 illegal interlopers were discovered in a sample size of 98 stores. Does that not suggest 21/98 stores hired (it’s not clear for the article if they were employees or people who happened to be there at the time) “undocumented workers”. Through basic arithmetic, 21 divided by 98 equals 21.4%.

        Am I missing something? Do you reckon the number of undocumented workers is greater or less than 21%. How can a more accurate estimate be derived? Personally, I think the closer to 0% illegals (not immigrants, but illegal immigrants) is best.

    Thus the reason for only selling franchises, many large food service corporations do the same thing so they can wash their hands of any wrong doing on the practices of the franchise owners.

  • MajorMajor411

    Thank God for Donald J. Trump! The FIRST president since Reagan who has the guts to put Americans first. Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr. and Obama never wanted protection of our borders.

    Americans need jobs so we don’t need legal or illegal immigrants taking their jobs.

  • Linda Meyer

    ? What did this cost us? how many feds were involved? was this 2 guys going from store to store? I want this taken care of too, but it sounds like hundreds of teams & only 21 illegals ???

  • Tim

    Yeah! keep it up
    great work ICE

  • jackel leo

    Those people who hire illegals need to lose their businesses good for 7-11. These illegals need to go back to their own country and try building up that country. It’s easy to cone here and knock a hard working Americans out of a job opportunities. I`v traveled to a lot of countries around this planet we were given no work opportunity and told very up front when to leave.

  • Bill Thompson

    Common knowledge sanctuary city mayors and city council’s require illegal aliens votes to remain in power. High Time those illegal aliens return to fix their own countries using what they’ve learned in America.
