Our 9 month series, New Hampshire's Immigration Story explored just that... the vast history of who came to New Hampshire, when they came, why they came, the challenges they faced once they landed on Granite State soil and the contributions that they brought to our state. The Exchange, Word of Mouth, and our News Department looked at the issue of immigration from its first arrivals to the newest refugees calling New Hampshire home.We saw how immigration affects our economy, health care, education system, culture and our current system of law. We also looked at what's going on in New Hampshire today, as we uncovered the groups, societies and little known people who are making an impact all over the state.Funding for NH's Immigration Story is brought to you in part by: New Hampshire Humanities Council, Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation, The Gertrude Couch Trust0000017a-15d9-d736-a57f-17ff89e10000

A Mexican restaurant in New Boston that was raided by immigration agents this week has shuttered.

La Cabana Mexican Restaurant announced in a Facebook post on Thursday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement had raided their restaurant that morning, picking up half its staff.

The AP confirmed with ICE that two people who had been previously deported from the United States were arrested outside the restaurant.

Records indicate the restaurant is owned by Pedro Aguirre. In the Facebook post, the owner noted La Cabana would be closed until further notice. By Friday, Aguirre had filed paperwork with the Secretary of State’s office to formally shut the restaurant's doors.

Messages left with the restaurant were not returned.
