PHOENIX — Three dozen people suspected of being in the country illegally
are in custody after federal authorities raided a drophouse in Phoenix.
Officials from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Arizona Department of
Public Safety and Phoenix police served a search warrant Wednesday afternoon on
at least one house.
Authorities say 36 people were arrested, but their names or nationalities
weren’t immediately released.
ICE spokeswoman Amber Cargile says the raid was part of an ongoing human
smuggling investigation by federal authorities.
