LAFAYETTE, LA (FOX44) — Four illegal aliens were arrested at a Lafayette restaurant/night club over the weekend.
Witnesses say the parking lot of El Ranchito, located on Cameron Road, was filled with State Troopers and ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officers. The arrests happened in the late evening on Saturday, April 28.
U.S. ICE officials tell FOX44 News that four illegal aliens, three from Mexico and one from Honduras, were arrested on civil immigration charges.
The arrests stemed from an investigation being lead by the Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control in Lafayette.
FOX44 News attempted to contact El Rancho and spoke with an acting manager. They denied that the arrests were related to immigration issues. Also, the manager could not provide information related to whether those individuals were employees or patrons of the establishment.
