The AP reports:
Immigration agents descended on dozens of 7-Eleven convenience stores before dawn Wednesday to begin checking on employees’ immigration status in what officials described as the largest operation against an employer under Donald Trump’s presidency.
Agents targeted about 100 stores nationwide, broadening an investigation that began four years ago with a case against a franchisee on New York’s Long Island. The audits could lead to criminal charges or fines over the stores’ hiring practices. Twenty-one people suspected of being in the U.S. illegally were arrested.
Then-presidential candidate Joe Biden may have been onto something when we made an observation about 7-11 and Dunkin’ Donuts stores in his home state of Delaware.
While interacting with voters in 2006, Biden told a man that in Delaware, the largest population growth at that time was “Indian-Americans — moving from India.
“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent — I’m not joking,” he told the man, raising his eyebrows.
“It’s gigantic,” he added.
