Immigration agents were in about 100 7-Eleven stores in 17 states nationwide Wednesday, performing audits on employment practices in yet another Trump-era tactic to enforce stricter immigration laws. It’s no secret that Trump has been a big proponent of immigration reform; That whole “build the wall” saga tells us that. But these employment audits, which could lead to fines or even criminal charges, are aimed specifically at store managers and owners, who will be forced to provide appropriate documentation to prove the people they hired are here legally. While it may seem pretty random to target 7-Eleven specifically — I mean, come on, it’s not even free Slurpee day! — the audits came about following a 2013 investigation that resulted in nine managers getting charged with hiring workers illegally in order to pay below minimum wage. It appears no one can escape ICE, and we don’t mean the cold kind.
