Restaurant Co-Owner, Employee Turned Over To Immigration Officials

The co-owner of an Italian restaurant in Carteret County and an employee are in federal custody, suspected of being in the country illegally.

They were among three people arrested last week by deputies.

Carteret County deputies say Ehab Ghareeb co-owned the Every Day Italian Restaurant in Newport. Deputies say Bassem Fangary was an employee.

Deputies say the two men from the Middle East were in the country illegally.

Two nights earlier deputies say they arrested Francisco Limon after they say he called the 911 center several times and wouldn't give a reason for the calls.

All three men were turned over to Immigration & Customs Enforcement agents.

    These guys are only suspected of being in the country illegally. Nothing has been proven. They are two of the kindest, hardest working people I know. Those of you who know them, know they don't deserve this. Guess what?....They just might be legal. If the government would do their homework before passing out permits to do business, this would not have happened, so GREAT JOB Carteret County!!!!!

    America welcomes people from all countries with open arms. All you have to do is come into our country legally. Is that so hard?

    It really doesn't matter where you are from or how hard you work when you get to this great country that our fathers fought for.....if you are here illegally, that is what it is illegal. Why do americans, and yes I know that Americans are a bunch of different peeps for all over the world. But it is not our duty to take care of everyone. Hell we cant take care of our own now. Sorry dudes, go home and come back the right way. All are welcome if done right.

    I have visited the restaurant many times.The people being named have always been hard working and friendly individuals.They aren't going on planes with explosives in their underware they are trying to make a living for themselves and families.Not sure where all the Hispanic comments came from but the individuals in the restaurant are not Hispanic they are from Egypt.....

    Del, greedy Americans? Nice try in trying to get the hooey of the week award. Seems someone else got that yesterday. I see you as a strong runner up though.....who is spending more money in Haiti and with all the disasters in the world? Who is there first to help? Now, go turn on you TV or buy a paper. OK, you employ them, illegals, your guilt shows....

    They might belong to a terrorist cell! I think all illegals should BE DEPORTED!!!!!! Never to return! Don't pay federal taxes and state taxes and get welfare for their legal born in the USA children. Send them all back where they came from if they are here illegal. First Apply for visa ! 2nd Learn ENGLISH! 3rd Then get a job! 4th then you get your license. If you don't get the requirement #1 or 2 you are not coming in! Build the fence hire more border patrol agents ans INS and start enforcing the rules! THis would end all the problems about jobs and bad economy\.Get the moochers to work or send them packing and you should have to take a pee test to get welfare !
