Acting on tip-offs UKBA officers visited the Rice Flamebar & Grill on Chester street, Manchester on Thursday and checked the immigration status of staff.
Two men from Pakistan, aged 28 and aged 33, two women from Mongolia aged 31 and aged 40, and one Chinese man aged 21, were all found to be working illegally.
UKBA then visited the Rice Flamebar & Grill in Piccadilly Gardens where one Mongolian woman aged 29, one Mongolian man aged 28, and one Iraqi man aged 32 were all found working illegally.
Six of the eight illegal workers found in the raids are now in immigration detention awaiting removal from the UK. The other two have been placed on immigration bail giving them a chance to disappear and find illegal work somewhere else..
Employing eight illegal workers smacks of facilitating illegal immigration, both bars should be shut down and the owners facing jail sentences.
