The Department of Homeland Security said it detained and administratively arrested 28 illegal immigrants in Fort Pierce on Wednesday.

Agents served a search warrant at 9 a.m. to Tentlogix, a tent rental company that provides large scale items for events.

The immigrants will not necessarily be deported due to the possibility of human trafficking, according to authorities on scene.

The Department of Homeland Security said the people detained were taken away by bus.

A worker at the scene told CBS12 there are many employees without papers.

Due to the ongoing investigation, agents are not releasing specifics.
