CNN) -- A chain of Phoenix-area car washes that's raised thousands for local charities, including numerous law enforcement agencies, found itself the target of a sweeping raid Saturday by law officers.
Special agents from Immigration and Custom Enforcement's homeland security investigations unit conducted raids at 13 Danny's Family Car Wash locations in central Arizona, plus three locations tied to its outsourced staffing service provider, HR Betty, said ICE spokesman Andrew Munoz.
"We are ... going after businesses that are a magnet for unauthorized workers," Munoz said.
The action came as part of a criminal investigation into alleged criminal fraud, identity theft and financial violations, according to the agency. Few details were immediately available, though more would come out if an indictment in the case is unsealed.

As Americans our identity is very important to us. So when people steal our identity, that's a problem. And that's something we take very seriously and investigate vigorously," she said
Sheriff Joe Arpaio ,must be smiling today remember when the supporters of illegals said his arrests were racist and why is he arresting people for using fraudulent documents..A quote from awhile back.I'd like to see what those same supporters have too........ say today ?
They'll say the same thing.
They never change.
All you need is a little meth and a science teacher and you could make TV show.
That is huge for a carwash, looks more like a hangar. Corporate offices upstairs in that one or something?
So, how did the locals know to make these arrests:
Maybe they had help, from the NSA/SOD division:
NSA, DEA, IRS Lie About Fact That Americans Are Routinely Spied On By Our Government

NSA, DEA, IRS Lie About Fact That Americans Are Routinely Spied On By Our Government: Time For A Special Prosecutor
It seems that every day brings a new revelation about the scope of the NSAs heretofore secret warrantless mass surveillance programs. And as we learn more, the picture becomes increasingly alarming. Last week we discovered that the NSA shares information with a division of the Drug Enforcement Agency called the Special Operations Division (SOD). The DEA uses the information in drug investigations. But it also gives NSA data out to other agencies in particular, the Internal Revenue Service, which, as you might imagine, is always looking for information on tax cheats.
The Obama Administration repeatedly has assured us that the NSA does not collect the private information of ordinary Americans. Those statements simply are not true. We now know that the agency regularly intercepts and inspects Americans phone calls, emails, and other communications, and it shares this information with other federal agencies that use it to investigate drug trafficking and tax evasion. Worse, DEA and IRS agents are told to lie to judges and defense attorneys about their use of NSA data, and about the very existence of the SOD, and to make up stories about how these investigations started so that no one will know information is coming from the NSAs top secret surveillance programs.

they wash and launder money too....breaking bad
Even before the story told me, I could have guessed this was about illegals. How much English do you have to know to wipe down a car or a truck, particularly since the boss probably speaks Spanish?
The mistake was making Pedro or Juan wipe down the vehicles. Put Juanita or Maria in tiny bikinis, make them wipe down the vehicles, charge double for the men to gawk and ICE probably becomes too distracted to make a raid.

Is that now the term? This Danny must be a big GOP donor to warrant such an honor.
Carp! That’s where I get my car washed.
Walter White uses it to launder money
(Reply to CC’s Breaking Bad reference)
There is a reason why washing a car is farmed out to undocumented workers. They are ding the jobs that some mercuns can’t do. :)
As demonstrated below.
Oh that’s a movie set location? I’m not all that big on pop culture references, I thought that was supposed to be one of the Danny’s Carwash locations in question.
Before the 1965 Immigration Act kicked in and we started getting illegals by the millions, this was yet another job that was done by Americans.
Like dishwasher, ditch digger, laborer, it was a job that was easy to get and easy to do, the kind of thing that is now replaced with welfare, and that teens are kept out of almost entirely.
“Easy to do”? Spoken like a man who has never been a dishwasher or a ditch digger.
