Greyhound to stop allowing immigration checks on buses in U.S.

Greyhound , the nation's largest bus company, said Friday it will stop allowing U.S. Border Patrol agents without a warrant to board its buses to conduct routine immigration checks.

The company's announcement came one week after The Associated Press reported on a leaked Border Patrol memo confirming that agents can't board private buses without the consent of the bus company. Greyhound had previously insisted that even though it didn't 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 general public. It 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. Greyhound has faced pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union, immigrant rights activists and Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson to stop allowing sweeps on buses within 100 miles (160 kilometres) of an international border or coastline. They say the practice is intimidating and discriminatory and has become more common under President Donald Trump. Border Patrol arrests videotaped by other passengers have sparked criticism, and Greyhound faces a lawsuit in California alleging that it violated consumer protection laws by facilitating raids. Some other bus companies, including Jefferson Lines, which operates in 14 states, and MTRWestern, which operates in the Pacific Northwest, have made clear that they do not consent to agents boarding buses. The memo obtained by the AP was dated Jan. 28, addressed to all chief patrol agents and signed by then-Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost just before she retired. It confirms the legal position that Greyhound's critics have taken: that the Constitution's Fourth Amendment prevents agents from boarding buses and questioning passengers without a warrant or the consent of the company. "When transportation checks occur on a bus at non-checkpoint locations, the agent must demonstrate that he or she gained access to the bus with the consent of the company's owner or one of the company's employees," the memo states. An agent's actions while on the bus "would not cause a reasonable person to believe that he or she is unable to terminate the encounter with the agent." Related Stories Read more: CTV News

Click bait fake news CTV. Greyhound was sued in California Oct 2018, over this issue. 100 miles within a border location no random checks. GH gives every passenger a script of their rights if a check is conducted. AG, Ferguson, Dem. Seattle, proud to have sued WH 50 times. so Greyhound will not be making anymore international crossings? Once they inform Department of Homeland Security that it does not consent to unwarranted searches on its buses. I'm sure US won't allow buses to become potential mules.

Time to change the law So trudeau cronies are still at it indict them CBS should then just turn their buses away. Problem solved. Freedom of movement is a guaranteed right, you want to tear up the constitution go right ahead. Trump will come for your 1st Amendment next Looks like the problem is do gooders don't like it when illegals are caught .cnn

COVID-19: Quarantine periods for some Canadians at CFB Trenton coming to an end FridayThe base in Trenton has housed Canadians who were airlifted from Wuhan, the city in China where the virus was first detected. Wait what? The coronavirus has a 24 day incubation period, why let them out after half that? Are you stupid?

If they can't follow Federal laws, then they should not be allowed to drive across the country. Promoting or assisting with illegal immigration is treason. I guess Greyhounds won't be going across the border anymore. Looks like economic suicide to me.

Meanwhile China is stealing all of our intellectual property and growing their economy with leaps and bounds. Canada is experiencing ideological subversion from paid foreign interest to destabilize our economy from within. I wonder what the outcome of the emergency response team will be? A response? All they are doing is garnering contempt and disgust, not support.

Entire Ontario public school system closed, millions out of class Friday as teachers strikeThe province's four largest education unions are holding a strike on Friday, resulting in a complete shut down of the public education system. Greedy unions need to ensure the cash keeps flowing their way while the rest of system compensates by underpaying EAs or firing them, buildings fall apart,parents are begged for money, computers in schools are generally pathetic, the list is long.Get back to work,put a plug in it Our taxes were to purchase a specific number of hours of tuition for our children. Because of this, and also the Friday climate nonsense, I expect the academic year to be extended into Summer, for both the teachers and students, or I want my money back.
