By Steve Neavling
DETROIT — Federal authorities busted an alleged cockfighting and gambling ring in southwest Detroit over the weekend, detaining about 50 undocumented immigrants.
ICE agents and law enforcement from local and state agencies executed a search warrant at 1 p.m. Saturday at an abandoned building where authorities said they found about 85 people and 100 chickens, Motor City Muckraker reports.
ICE agents said the raid was the culmination of a months-long investigation.
About 85 people were in the building, and only one was charged criminally.
The largest concentration of Hispanic immigrants live in southwest Detroit.
