7-Eleven reopens stores shut down by feds during raid

Officials say the 7-Eleven stores closed by the feds earlier this week will be open again today.

Agents raided 10 7-Eleven stores from Islip to Greenport on Monday.

Investigators accuse franchise operators of using undocumented workers as virtual slave labor in a "modern day plantation system."

The 7-Eleven chain is reopening the stores with its own supervisors and workers, according to Newsday.
