On Thursday and Friday, Immigration enforcement raided a number of workplaces in Southern Ontario, arresting and detaining workers with precarious immigration status on their way to and from work. Over a hundred workers are now languishing in detention centres.

On early Thursday morning, enforcement officers stormed into three different businesses in Bradford and Markham where they arrested migrant workers. CBSA even followed workers to their homes throughout the GTA and surrounding area. In total 80 people were arrested. They were placed on GO buses, handcuffed and held immobile for hours.
