Tell Greyhound to Stop Aiding Trump's Deportation Machine!
Allowing U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents to board your buses and conduct warrantless searches is not only immoral, but a violation of your passengers constitutional rights. Data has shown that CBP targets Black and Latinx passengers for arrest and detention and has in many cases, detained citizens and legal residents. 10 state chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union have reached out to you and informed you of your legal rights to refuse boarding to CBP agents, and you have refused to invoke those rights.
We are demanding that, on behalf of your passengers, you adopt policies to deny boarding to CBP agents without warrants and to end these illegal searches.
Why is this important?
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents board Greyhound buses to racially profile and target passengers of color and passengers with accents. This is in blatant violation of the 4th amendment against illegal searches.
