    TN: Raid nets 50 suspected illegal immigrants

    Raid nets 50 suspected illegal immigrants
    Three restaurants targeted by feds
    By MARK BELL • Gannett Tennessee • June 19, 2008

    Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided at least three businesses owned by restaurant entrepreneur Stanley Wang on Tuesday, including The New Famous Chinese Restaurant in Nashville, Chef Wang's in Murfreesboro and the Famous Chinese Restaurant in Smyrna.

    About 50 suspected illegal immigrants were identified and detained during the sweep, Nashville-based Assistant United States Attorney Lee Deneke said in a statement issued Wednesday. Those detained were citizens of Mexico, the People's Republic of China, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia and Indonesia.


    Wang could not be reached for comment at his home.

    Milissa Reierson, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, her department participated in the effort.

    Some suspects picked up Tuesday could face federal court prosecution for any law violations not related to immigration.

    The rest will go to immigration court and possibly be deported.

    Federal agents, along with the Murfreesboro Police Department, also conducted an investigation at an East Clark Boulevard home in relation to the raids.

    The Middle Tennessee sweep comes two months after a federal grand jury indictment aimed at Chinese restaurateurs ac cused of in ducing illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. by providing them jobs, according to a news release on the ICE Web site.

    Several employment agency owners from Georgia named in the indictments allegedly conspired with others to transport and provide jobs to immigrants who were illegally in the country from October 2006 through April.

    Chef Wang's owner Stanley Wang and his wife, Margarat, moved to the Murfreesboro area approximately 10 years ago from New York City.

    Cleveland,TN in Bradley County was part of the previous investigation mentioned in the article. Even with at least one raid by ICE and the suspected continuation of illegal alien hiring and harboring/smuggling, one Chinese restaurant keeps the same pattern of taking many individuals by van with darkened windows to a local restaurant. Other vans from other counties bring workers to one location. These people live in a home, violating local housing code and yet the City of Cleveland.TN apparently does not want to interrupt the unscrupulous behavior of local employers. ICE is being told and shown and still the pattern is the same.

    A few restaurants that allegedly use illegal aliens for employees are frequent hang outs for local City of Cleveland and Bradley County law enforcement. They must prefer their stomachs to their duties.

    Makes you kind of wonder if they aren't getting kickbacks for looking the other way.

    That is a possibility. The Sheriff from the next county is in jail for taking money that involved Mexico and drug trafficking. Citizens wonder if this was a factor in illegal immigration being ignored in Hamilton County, which includes Chattanooga,TN.

    ICE needs to go into all factories, pure and simple. Early morning watch the illegals go into the factories and out the door at quitting time. Winter is good and dark in the morning and evening. In the dark illegals move and steal the best of American jobs.

    Check their status legal or illegal.

    Why can't Social Security and IRS show records of who once worked at these factories within the past twenty years? I bet the names are not American anymore. I have known Americans qualified for a job be turned away and the next illegal in line got hired.

    Why have Americans left these factories? Simple answer is: illegals are here.

    Another thing: Aren't most restaurant rated by states? Why aren't the state inspectors checking TB shot records, Social Security Numbers and names for accuracy? Every agency should be checking, each needs to do a job for the tax dollars we pay them. Burning UP

    Good points vmonkey56. People keep giving ICE and the federal government and law enforcement tips and there is so little action taking place. Another reason for law enforcement to partner with ICE through 287g programs so there will somehow be a larger presence tackling the illegal immigration problem. A few thousand ICE agents against millions is inexcusable. This is another reason to say they can only gather the worst, the criminal illegal aliens. There is not enough man power to go after every illegal alien stealing our identities and committing immigration violations.

    In Tennessee an illegal alien may get a health permit to sell food out of the back of their car. They may also obtain a business license. In May the Tennessee Attorney General said that illegal aliens may also marry without social security numbers or proof of legality. The citizens must still present proof of identity. The crazy part is that this legislative year the State of Tennessee passed a law that makes it possible for businesses to be penalized or lose their business licenses for knowingly hiring illegal aliens. So you can lose your license if you hire an illegal alien, but if you are an illegal alien you may get a business license and operate a business. Go figure that nonsense out.
