Authorities raid cockfighting operation in southwest Detroit

Feds say about 50 people were taken into custody on immigration law violations

Authorities raided a building in southwest Detroit on Saturday as part of an investigation into cockfighting and illegal gambling.

There were 86 people inside the abandoned building in the 1200 block of Green, near Springwells and I-75, when multiple agencies executed a search warrant around 1 p.m, said Khaalid Walls, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“We made approximately 50 administrative arrests for individuals who were in violation of immigration law,” he said. “And those individuals will be detained in ICE custody pending removal proceedings.”

About 140 federal, state and local law enforcement officials descended on the area as part of the ongoing criminal investigation that has spanned several months, Walls said. When officials arrived, there were more than 100 birds at the location.
