US News Article | Reuters.com: "HOUSTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency arrested 60 undocumented immigrants working at oil refineries, power plants, a pipeline company and an air cargo center, according to a statement issued on Friday.

The workers were employed by Brock Enterprises, a Beaumont, Texas, company that provides contract workers to U.S. energy companies. Contract workers usually perform maintenance work at energy plants and do not operate production equipment.

The agency said Brock was cooperating with the investigation and was not a target of the probe.

'There is no evidence that any have terrorist ties or were engaged in a terrorist plot,' ICE said of those arrested.

Many of those arrested are believed to have provided fraudulent documents to gain employment, the agency said. They are believed to be from either Mexico, Guatemala or Honduras.

The workers were employed at refineries in Texas, Oklahoma and California, power plants in Texas, California and Mississippi, a pipeline company based in Louisiana and the Federal Express Air Cargo Facility in Memphis, Tennessee."
