Three arrested in Atlanta area, 43 to appear in immigration court

Forty-six people suspected of being in the country illegally were discovered when federal immigration authorities and the Internal Revenue Service carried out search warrants at an Atlanta-area chain of Hispanic grocery stores Thursday, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE issued notices to 43 of them to appear in federal Immigration Court and then released them. It arrested three others – one Mexican and two Guatemalan store employees who had previously been deported — and took boxes of documents and computers from the Super Mercado Jalisco stores, said ICE spokesman Lindsay Williams.
