Federal officials arrested two dozen people Thursday outside an employment agency, authorities said.
FBI and ICE agents raided the agency just off Chamblee-Dunwoody Road in Chamblee, arresting about 24 individuals and seizing several computers, FBI spokesman special agent Stephen Emmett told WSB Radio.
"ICE and FBI agents are currently conducting a targeted enforcement operation, and are executing several arrest and search warrants in the Atlanta metropolitan area," Emmett said.
It's unclear what charges will be filed.
The agency reportedly charged illegal Asian and Latino immigrants large fees -- anywhere from $250 to $500 -- to find them jobs, according to WSB.
Emmett said more arrests are coming, and more information will be made available in the near future from the U.S. Attorney's office.
