Fargo's Casa Ramos restaurant reopens after employees arrested on false document charges

FARGO - Casa Ramos Mexican Restaurant reopened this morning, after being closed since Wednesday when eight of its employees were arrested on federal charges involving false immigration documents.

FARGO - Casa Ramos Mexican Restaurant reopened this morning, after being closed since Wednesday when eight of its employees were arrested on federal charges involving false immigration documents.

A ninth employee was arrested Thursday on the same charges, when Border Patrol officials did a transportation check at the Fargo bus depot.

Casa Ramos originally opened in August in the former Hooters site at 1649 38th St. S. in Fargo. According to Forum archives, it employs 18 people.

Restaurant officials said this morning Casa Ramos had re-opened but they did not have a comment on the federal criminal charges the employees face.

Eight men, who told authorities they worked for Casa Ramos, were arrested early Wednesday after West Fargo police responded to a noise complaint. With the assistance of an interpreter from the U.S. Border Patrol in Grand Forks, N.D., officials determined the men were in the country illegally.

A ninth man arrested Thursday at the bus depot also told authorities he worked for Casa Ramos.

The men appeared in U.S. District Court last week on charges of possessing and using fake Social Security and alien registration cards.

According to the criminal complaints, the nine men knowingly purchased the fake cards in Colorado, Florida, California and Arizona for amounts ranging from $60 to $150.
