Saturday night a task force led by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement raided about 24 area night-club-type businesses and arrested 49 allegedly illegal security guards — some packing pistols, according to the Morning News article, which includes a complete list of the raids. Charges include document tampering/falsification. "Those arrested also face charges of being in the country illegally." (really?!) Said list includes Far West Night Club at 7331 Gaston Ave. Apparently Far West is a former name, or just another alias of the OK Sports Bar and Club Babalu, which has been the topic of a couple discussions here at Back Talk.
Also raided in the East Dallas area: Az De Oro Night Club, 3320 Samuel Blvd., Ojeda's Restaurant, 4617 Maple (Noooooo!), El Penasco, 4601 Maple, Izalco Bar, 4605 Maple, Palacio, 4430 Maple
