OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) _ A restaurant in northeast Kansas is the focus of an investigation by federal immigration officials.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the El Mezcal Mexican restaurant in Ottawa was closed Friday amid an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, a branch of the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Shawn Neudauer, a spokesman for Homeland Security Investigations, confirmed that special agents from Homeland Security conducted an operation at the restaurant Friday, with help from local law enforcement agencies.

He says the agency could not provide details about Friday's events because it was part of an ongoing criminal investigation.
