Grand Island, N.Y.
On February 14, 2017, U.S. Border Patrol received an anonymous call that there were 12-20 illegal immigrants at an address on Long Rd. In response, agents assigned to the Buffalo Border Patrol Station increased patrols in the area.
Border Patrol agents arrest subjects
illegally present in the U.S.

During the increased patrols, agents observed two vans containing multiple occupants in the area. Both vans pulled into a local food chain restaurant on Grand Island Boulevard. One of the vans parked and the other van went through the drive through. Agents initiated a consensual encounter with the subjects in the parked van who exited to go inside the restaurant. Two of the subjects attempted to flee on foot but were apprehended a short time later at a local drug store. A total of four subjects exited the vehicle; all were questioned by agents and determined to be illegally present in the United States.

Other agents initiated a vehicle stop on the second vehicle as it exited the drive through. That vehicle contained six subjects; three of the subjects were determined to be in the country illegally. One subject was determined to be a United States citizen, he was identified and released at the scene.

All subjects, with the exception of the United States citizen, were taken to the Buffalo Border Patrol Station for processing. Another subject claimed to be a lawfully admitted permanent resident but did not have his card present with him. Once at the station, his identity as a lawful permanent resident was confirmed and he was released. A third subject was found to have been registered as a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA); therefore, he was also released.
Initial records checks on one of the subjects from Mexico revealed that he was a convicted sex offender in 2008 in North Carolina. He was deported shortly after his conviction and re-entered the United States sometime thereafter.

A total of seven male subjects, five from Mexico and two from Honduras, are being held for immigration proceedings.

The Border Patrol welcomes information regarding suspected illicit activity, and can be contacted 24/7 at 1-800-331-0353.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

    What about Trump's promise that only "criminal aliens" would be arrested and deported? Anyone who believes that promise might just as well believe that Trump's ban against entry by citizens of seven Muslim countries is also supported by a presidential finding that the tiny perscantages of Christians and Jews living in those countries pose a danger to the United States, along with the Muslims. and that Muslims are not being targeted specifically even though they are 99 percent of the population in most or all of these countries.
