Greyhound Lines, one of the nation’s leading bus companies, announced it will no longer allow agents from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency to stop and check its buses for illegal immigrants across the nation and in Florida.
Under federal law, border agents can perform routine checks on Greyhound buses without a warrant. But Greyhound now insists law enforcement personnel will not be able to board its private buses without the company’s consent.
Basically Greyhound just told ICE they can’t come in their terminal without a warrant. Fine, that is legally right.
Now a simple DUI checkpoint OUTSIDE the terminal, a couple of drug-sniffing dogs doing the rounds and if they give a hit (and if you have rode a Greyhound bus, you know they will) and everybody is detained and searched.
Worse yet. Same scenario in a regular bus stop in the middle of nowhere and do you know how long does it take to check everybody’s ID? And Yehaaw Junction is not quite prime real state Palm Beach County.
