Greyhound Fights Back Against Border Patrol Bus Searches

Spencer S. Hsu, Washington Post, Dec. 22, 2018 - "Greyhound Lines is expanding alerts to passengers about their rights should immigration agents board buses to demand identification and proof of citizenship.

The information includes details on how to file civil rights complaints and ways to support a change to federal law about the warrantless stops.

The advisories come amid the holiday travel season and as the country’s largest motor coach operator and other carriers face an ongoing campaign by civil rights groups, labor unions and Democratic lawmakers to push back against recent expanded checks by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

Greyhound posted a guide Dec. 13 on its website under “Travel Info” and a section titled “Your rights & rules on board.” It also has posters with advice set to arrive in bus terminals nationwide, a company spokesman said."
