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.
