Byron Employees Deported

Following the raid on the 4th July 2016 where Byron Proper Hamburgers lured illegal migrant employees into an immigration trap, 25 of the 35 interviewed have already been deported.

A report by the BBC noted that these employees were none to happy about the way they were duped by the company, though agreeing that immigration officials treated them well.
