Several people arrested near Mesa in immigrant operation, FCSO says

Posted: Updated:

MESA, WA - On the morning of June 27, 2018, Immigrations Officials conducted an operation in the Basin City area, just west of Mesa. 

Several people were taken into custody earlier this morning; some on their way to work. The only signs of the arrest by the time NBC Right Now arrived were abandoned cars on the side of the road. 

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office was aware of the operation, and says that at least 8 people were taken into custody. One woman said ICE took her uncle as he was heading to Pasco. She says she doesn't understand why ICE does these kinds of raids.

"Does it feel good to take away?" the Basin City woman said. "Does it satisfy you? Does it feel right? When you see your victims in the face, what do you see in them?"

We also visited a local daycare that notified parents about the raid. But it wasn't only in Basin City - the town of Mesa was also visited by officials.

As of right now, we don't know if these people were targeted specifically or if it was a random raid.

No further information has been released at this time.
