ACLU seeks information on citizenship stops at bus stations

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The Maine American Civil Liberties Union is soliciting for information from federal officers on citizenship assessments at native bus stations.

Zachary Heiden, felony director of the Maine ACLU, tells the Portland Press Herald a passenger notified the group final week when U.S. Customs and Border Protection boarded their bus at the Bangor Transportation Center and requested riders about their citizenship.

No one was once arrested. Still, Heiden says the ACLU filed a Freedom of Information Act request for data from the previous yr associated with stops at the Bangor and Portland transportation facilities.

The group has but to obtain a reaction.

A U.S. Border Patrol consultant showed there was once an inspection in Bangor Jan. 14. He says the assessments at transportation hubs are “vital” for nationwide safety.
