DALLAS (AP) — The Latest on immigration agents arrest of nearly 300 people at a Texas company (all times local):

4:50 p.m.

Immigration officials say the nearly 300 people arrested at a Texas technology repair company came to the U.S. from 15 different countries on multiple continents.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it has released nearly two-thirds of the more than 280 people who did not have legal authorization to work in this country. They worked at CVE Technology Group refurbishing used cellphones.

Special Agent in Charge Katrina Berger says 110 of the people are being held in federal detention centers in Texas. The rest were given a date to appear in immigration court and released for “humanitarian reasons,” such as being the sole caregiver for a child or having a serious illness.

Berger says her staff conducted the large operation without drawing agents from other jurisdictions.

A phone message seeking comment with CVE was not immediately returned.

3:15 p.m.

A raid by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that federal authorities are touting as the largest in a decade was the latest in a series of similar enforcement actions under the Trump administration over the last two years.

About 200 law enforcement officials descended Wednesday on CVE Technology Group in Allen, a city about 15 miles (24 kilometers) northeast of Dallas.

Approximately 280 people who work for the technology repair company were taken away in buses. Each will face deportation proceedings.

The Texas raid was the latest in a series of high-profile busts of businesses around the country as part of President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown.

Critics say the raids break up hard-working families and make it even harder for businesses to find employees in a tight labor market.
