21 February 2013
Acting on intelligence our officers visited a residential address in the university area of Belfast on 20 February.
Checks on 4 men found at the property revealed they were working illegally at car washes in Belfast.
The men, who are aged between 25 and 29, have been placed in UK Border Agency detention while steps are taken to remove them from the country.
Mike Golden, of the UK Border Agency said:
'Foreign nationals who are in this country illegally should be in no doubt that they will be found, arrested and removed from the UK.'
Employers unsure of the steps they need to take to avoid employing illegal workers can visit our Preventing illegal working pages, or they can call the agency's employers helpline on 0300 123 4699.
