114 LA Workers File Complaints Over Immigration Raid

LOS ANGELES - More than 100 employees of a Los Angeles printer
supply manufacturer say they were illegally detained during a February raid by federal immigration agents.

Authorities say 138 people were arrested Feb. 7 at Micro Solutions Enterprises for immigration violations and other crimes.

But 114 other workers there filed complaints this week seeking $5,000 apiece. Those workers all are U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents and claim armed federal agents shouted at them to show proof of legal U.S. residency during the four-hour raid.

A statement released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement says
the search was conducted properly.

The complaints were filed with ICE and the Department of
Homeland Security.
