INS arrests 7 illegal aliens

BALTIMORE - Federal agents arrested seven illegal aliens at Frederick County, Md., restaurants Wednesday, authorities said.

Acting on tips, agents from the Immigration and Naturalization Service arrested workers who were undocumented. The Casa Rico and Hot Wok restaurants in Frederick were targeted in the operation, INS officials said.

Five Hondurans, one Mexican and one worker from El Salvador were arrested, officials said. Their names were not released.

INS officials said the workers were taken to Baltimore and will be moved to the INS detention facility in Wicomico County, Md., where they will be held in lieu of $3,000 bond.

The INS targets illegal aliens in industries traditionally associated with illegal employment, including food preparation, farm labor, construction and landscaping, officials said.

"The INS is committed to reducing the magnet of job opportunities for illegal aliens by targeting illegal practices which undercut law-abiding businesses and authorized workers," district director Benedict J. Ferro said in a statement.

INS officials said Wednesday's arrests freed $84,000 in annual wages for legal workers.
