Law Agencies Raid Homes and Two Restaurants for Counterfeit IDs

kima

Yakima police, the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided 11 homes Wednesday in Yakima. Agents also raided 22 cars and two Mexican restaurants. Federal court documents indicate dozens of people are under investigation for possession of counterfeit identification documents and falsely claiming to be U.S. citizens.

Both El Mirador restaurants are under scrutiny for knowingly hiring Illegal aliens. The documents say more than 30 current or former employees provided false documents to gain employment. Ten of those employees had their counterfeit photos taken inside one of the restaurants. Six were wearing El Mirador uniforms in those pictures.

News partner KIMA Action News reports several of those taken into custody are suspected of using counterfeit birth certificates, driver’s licenses, travel documents and financial records. Federal court papers also showed investigators confiscated a computer and digital camera containing photos for the phony documents.

The raid began around 8:30 Wednesday morning on the 700 block of Third Avenue. The stretch of Third Avenue between Peach Street and Arlington Street was blocked off for about two hours.
