Authorities say last week's massive enforcement operation targeting restaurants in State College is connected to alleged immigration violations.

The Homeland Security Investigations unit with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency conducted an enforcement operation in State College Thursday, which targeted a number of restaurants.

ICE Spokesperson Nicole Navas says HSI special agents detained 10 people from China, Guatemala, Thailand, Mexico and Indonesia.

"They are currently in ICE custody pending removal or immigration removal proceedings," Navas says. "The HSI criminal investigation continues."

Targeted restaurants included the China Dragon in the 100 block of South Allen Street, Penang and College Buffet on North Atherton Street, and Hundred Degrees Hot Pot, My Thai and Fuji & Jade Garden in the Westerly Parkway Plaza.
