Assistant UK Border Agency director Steve Fisher said the operations “sent out a message”.
He added: “Employers who take on illegal workers are both fuelling illegal immigration and damaging the majority of legitimate east London businesses who play by the rules.
“This is why we have the power to hit those who break the law with heavy fines and more operations like this are planned.”
