Chicago Bakery Loses Hundreds of Employees in Immigration Raid

A bakery on Chicago’s west side is scrambling to replace more than 800 workers after an immigration raid. 

Cloverhill Bakery said about 35 percent of its work staff was impacted by the raid because they did not have sufficient documentation. 

Cloverhill says an unnamed job placement agency supplied the workers. Cloverhill says it lost $21 million because of the raid. 

In a story we ran during our 6 a.m. newscast on Tuesday, November 28th, we showed a clip of Cloverhill Bakery with a banner advertisement for Metro Staffing on the side of the bakery building. Metro is not the placement agency involved in the immigration raid, and in fact continues to supply workers to Cloverhill. We apologize for any confusion this might have created.
