Immigration attorney Andres Perez weighed in on the temporary closure of Sushi Zushi. It's unclear exactly what caused several vital employees to not return to work after they learned of news of a company I-9 audit. The restaurant released a statement saying, "Sushi Zushi has made it's best effort to comply with I-9 requirements." The press release also states, ""Sushi Zushi is working with legal counsel to respond to the government's audit. We wish to be clear, there was no raid by the government on our operations, nor has any employee been detained by the government or terminated by the company." Perez says government audits have become more frequent, "Prior to the rise in I-9 audits the government would typically raid a work site and look for undocumented individuals. Now the government is switching to more of an audit based enforcement mechanism in order to work with employers and investigate employer violations." Sushi Zushi has not stated when it will be open again. Management says it did not expect the internal reaction they received due to news of the audit.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Houston's Astrodome stadium, New York's old Pan Am Worldport Terminal at Kennedy Airport and Montana's one-room schoolhouses are joining a list of the nation's most endangered historic places.
On Wednesday, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is releasing its listing of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. It includes sites from Maine to Alaska.
The Astrodome was the world's first domed, air-conditioned stadium and was once called the "eighth wonder of the world." On Wednesday, a county board recommended converting the Astrodome into a giant convention center and exhibition space.
At New York's JFK Airport, the flying-saucer-shaped Worldport Terminal helped usher in the jet age in 1960 but has been vacated by Delta Air Lines and faces demolition.
A look at these two places, plus all the others on the list, through photos:
