Multiple large buses were seen parked at the back entrance of a building in the 900 block of Enterprise Boulevard, according to helicopter footage from Fort Worth Star-Telegram media partner WFAA-TV. Allen is between McKinney and Plano.

The building is home to CVE Technology Group, which refurbishes and repairs electronics.

Carl Rusnok, a spokesperson for ICE, told the station that the operation is connected to a criminal investigation. No other details were released.

According to KERA News, employees with legal immigration papers were given green wrist bands to wear. Agents apparently arrived at the facility at about 10 a.m. and instructed workers to group together by legal status.

An inquiry from the Star-Telegram to ICE wasn’t immediately returned.

This is a developing story that will be updated when we have more information.
