Sheriff’s deputies raided two Sizzler steak house restaurants in Phoenix on Saturday, arresting nine employees who are suspected of being illegal immigrants and using fraudulent documents to get jobs.
The raids were part of a yearlong investigation into whether the operators of the two Sizzler locations broke a civil law by knowingly hiring illegal immigrants, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Brian Lee said in a statement.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpio receive a tip from an ex Sizzler manager about the Sizzler franchise that hired and re-hired illegals:
The sheriff’s office received a tip from a former Sizzler manager who claimed he had been fired for his refusal to hire employees without the proper documents, Lee said.
“This is another example of a case where desperately needed jobs are being occupied by illegal aliens who have disregarded our laws and our borders,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said in the statement.
