Nearly 20 suspected illegal immigrants are locked up after Livingston Parish Sheriff's deputies raided a construction site in Satsuma.

The sheriff's department says it received complaints that illegal immigrants were part of a construction crew at the North Oaks Medical Center.

Today authorities arrested all workers unable to show proof they're in the U.S. legally.

A total of 18 men were brought into custody by the U.S. Border Patrol.
