ICE mum on raid of central Pennsylvania eateries

Written by The Associated Press | Jun 17, 2014 9:36 AM

(State College) -- Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have said little about a raid targeting eight Asian restaurants in central Pennsylvania last week, all but three of which had reopened by Monday.

Federal agents targeted the restaurants in and around State College on Thursday. At least 13 people were seen being taken away from the restaurants in wrist restraints.

ICE spokeswoman Nicole Navas says she can't provide details "in order not to compromise this ongoing criminal investigation."

Centre County law enforcement officials either declined comment on the raid or said they were ``out of the loop'' and had no information about it.

Congressman Glenn Thompson says he was told the raid was immigration-related, but had no other information to provide.
