U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents served arrest warrants at 16 different car wash locations in the Phoenix area on Saturday, part of a two-year federal investigation on the Danny’s Family Car Wash chain that ICE officials say was committing alleged immigration fraud, identity theft and financial violations. Federal investigators interviewed 223 people, arrested 14 and took 30 into custody following the raids, which started at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, according to officials.
