Greyhound to stop allowing immigration checks on buses

Greyhound to stop allowing immigration checks on buses
https://apnews.com/dc560c3581783c746aee1544c8ad1c85
Greyhound, the nationís largest bus company, said Friday it will stop allowing Border Patrol agents without a warrant to board its buses to conduct routine immigration checks.

The companyís announcement came one week after The Associated Press reported on a leaked Border Patrol memo confirming that agents canít board private buses without the consent of the bus company. Greyhound had previously insisted that even though it didnít like the immigration checks, it had no choice under federal law but to allow them.


In an emailed statement, the company said it would notify the Department of Homeland Security that it does not consent to unwarranted searches on its buses or in areas of terminals that are not open to the public ó such as company offices or any areas a person needs a ticket to access.

Greyhound said it would provide its drivers and bus station employees updated training regarding the new policy, and that it would place stickers on all its buses clearly stating that it does not consent to the searches.


Well finally some good news to share!!
