Detailed Analysis: The news viral on the social media claiming Mercado Roma restaurant recently visited by ICE and were none of the employees found to be legal American residents is a fake news. The graphic image was posted on May 19, on the Facebook profile page of America's Last Line of Defense (archived here).

The Mercado Roma restaurant is in Mexico City and ICE has no jurisdiction there.

With more than 20,000 professionals in the department, ICE has one of the largest operational profiles of any federal agency. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has offices in all 50 states as well as 47 foreign countries. ICE maintains attaches at many U.S. embassies abroad. While its primary responsibility is to monitor all human and commercial traffic into and out of the United States, ICE also performs a number of support functions. This agency identifies and removes unauthorized aliens who present a threat to public safety or the security of the United States.
