Courthouse News Service

(CN) – The Department of Homeland Security is making “transportation raids” in upstate New York and Pennsylvania on buses and trains that do not cross the international border, and refuses to release information about the roundups, according to a complaint in Manhattan Federal Court.
The DHS and its creature, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, have been making the raids in the Buffalo Sector, which includes 29 counties in upstate New York and Pennsylvania. Agents board Amtrak trains and public buses, looking for undocumented immigrants and criminal aliens, and use racial profiling to meet arrest quotas, according to the complaint.
