The Homeland Security Investigations unit claims to have confiscated $11,000 in counterfeit merchandise from vendors during the Raiders' opening game of the 2019 season on September 9 against the Denver Broncos. 

This unit does not oversee immigration violations. 

Dozens of agents took part in the raid to round up unlicensed hats, jerseys and other gear. 

"We're looking at networks from a variety of angles. From street sellers to the producer to, in some cases, the importer," said one official involved in the case.
