King House Buffet reopens after raid

King House Buffet in downtown Fargo reopened Friday, one day after federal agents took six of its employees into custody after determining that they were in the country illegally.

King House Buffet in downtown Fargo reopened Friday, one day after federal agents took six of its employees into custody after determining that they were in the country illegally.

The manager declined to comment, but an employee who did not give his name said staff was scrambling to fill vacancies left by the raid by U.S. Border Patrol agents and officials from North Dakota work-site enforcement agencies.

The restaurant closed temporarily Thursday after the sweep, which happened before noon.

State and federal officials also arrested three employees Thursday at West Fargo's China King, which did not open Friday. Attempts to reach management at China King for comment Friday were unsuccessful.

The nine arrests were for administrative violations of U.S. immigration laws. As of Friday, no criminal charges had been filed against the workers or their employers. Federal prosecutors are still weighing evidence.
