U.S. Immigration Cracks Down On NYC’s ‘Massage Parlors’

In a sweeping sting operation, U.S. immigration officials cracked down on a series of Korean massage parlors in Manhattan on Wednesday. U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) carried out arrests for prostitution and money laundering at eleven alleged brothels, according to an indictment obtained by the Daily Beast. The owners of all eleven parlors are named in the federal case, filed in New York’s Southern District Court.
