ICE Raid 2

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents work to determine the citizenship status of a load trail trailers employee August 2018 at the Sumner-based facility.

Thursday’s raid of the CVE Technology Group in Allen knocked the August raid of Sumner-based Load Trail from the largest ever Immigrations and Customs Enforcement round up of workers in the country illegally.

The Allen raid gathered more than 280 people according to The Dallas Morning News, while the agency arrested more than 150 at Load Trail in 2018. The U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Easter District Court, out of Sherman, confirmed no charges had been filed with their office against Load Trail. 

“It is still under investigation,” U.S. Attorney Davilyn Walston said. 

Carl Rusnok, director of communications for the Dallas ICE office, confirmed the investigation was ongoing, but wouldn’t provide any more information. 

“I don’t have info on the number of those arrested who may still be in ICE custody, or how many were deported,” he said in an email. 

“We do not track individuals by when or where they were arrested.” 

Calls made to Load Trail for a response went unreturned.
