U.S. immigration agents have made more than 100 arrests at an Ohio gardening company in the Trump administration's growing crackdown on employers for hiring people who are in the country illegally.

 The 114 arrests happened Tuesday morning at two locations of Corso's Flower & Garden Center, one in Sandusky and another in nearby Castalia. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it expects charges for crimes including identity theft and tax evasion.

No criminal charges have been filed against Corso's, but authorities say the employer is under investigation.

The operation is part of the Trump administration's focus on employers that took hold about a year after the president took office, months after a surge in deportation arrests began.
