MiamiHerald / For the second time in two weeks, a Florida Immigrant Coalition video shows U.S. Border Patrol agents taking someone into custody off a Greyhound bus at the Fort Lauderdale station.
According to a WSVN-Channel 7 report , the man in the overhead-shot video is Andrew Anderson, a 12-year Miami resident and Miami Beach business owner from Trinidad, and he’s being held at U.S. ICE’s Broward Transitional Center after not being able to prove citizenship.
Checking buses long has been everyday practice for U.S. Customs and Border agents. What hasn’t been common: the checks being captured on video and posted online during a heated time for the immigration issue.
Section 1357 of Title 8 of the United States Code says immigration officers can, without warrant, “interrogate any alien or person believed to be an alien as to his right to be or to remain in the United States.”
