Stop immigration check points w/ U.S Customs, Border Protection and D.H.S

    1. Petition by

      Debbie Rios

      North Las Vegas, NV

Greyhound Bus Company has a history of discrimination from being one of the first companies to be OK with segregation of blacks and white people to give the white people a "better service" to now violating rights of privacy and our 4th amendment. Greyhound now works with Border Patrol to stop the buses during their trip and have Border Patrol officers check the immigration status of the passengers. Arresting people without a warrant but based on their suspicioun of the passengers being here as an undocumented immigrant by their accent or customs and placing them in correctional facilities and having them deported. Greyhound is not accountable to anyone therefor they don't care about the passengers or the luggage of the people who get arrested as long as they get their money from the tickets. If Greyhound cared they would be concerned about papers before the passengers aboard the buses and they don't inform you of immigration check points until the buses stop leaving you with no options but to have your rights of privacy broken. And arrested to face deportation when all people want is to travel to see family members and travel from one destination to another. Greyhound is treating innocent people like Criminals!
Most passengers don't know that when an officers of Border Patrol, Department of Homeland Security or Immigration Customs Enforcement stop you and ask you for papers of proof of residency you have the right to remain silent and are not forced to answer any questions.
Why would police officers start asking for your papers, or your manager at work? Is this the U.S we want?? We will hit them where they do care, their wallets.
We must stop this Injustice and violations of Rights.
Boycott Greyhound and Amtrak Services. You can also see them in action by searching in YouTube; greyhound and border patrol.

****Thank you and please share this.

 

Please call Greyhound Services and bombard them with questions about them  violating undocumented people's rights.

      @Jaime Miranda: My parents are both legal Mexican immigrants. I am an American and NOT a descendant of Europeans. To my knowledge, I haven't enslaved any "native people". I love Mexico and wish that that country wasn't so messed up so that I could return to my home and my family. However, I can not tolerate those who would sneak into this great country illegally and "cut" in line all of my relatives who are waiting to come here. Furthermore, I cannot tolerate YOUR racism, you automatically assumed that I was "white" by assuming that Americans are racists for simply doing what they (and every other prosperous country) has done and must do-protect and control our borders. I was born an American, I will live an American, and I shall die an American. Furthermore, I detest the very subject of this petition "immigrant rights" no YOU are campaigning for ILLEGAL immigrant rights who are taking the slots that my family could use to escape the violence in Mexico.

      @Jaime Miranda: Both of my parents are LEGAL Mexican immigrants who came here about 10 years ago to escape the violence. Most of my family is still waiting to come here, waiting for a chance to come and make a life for themselves in this great country. For every ILLEGAL that comes to this country, that is probably one less slot for my family who has played by the rules and by all rights deserves to come here! Illegal immigrants ruin the name and make it exponentially harder for legal immigrants such as my parents. Furthermore, I detest YOUR racism, you assume that all Americans are of European descent? Really? I'm of Mexican descent, but an American, to my knowledge I haven't "enslaved any natives lately". I detest the attitude that just because Americans do as every other country has done and protect themselves that they are somehow racist! Illegal immigration needs to stop TODAY! One other statement that you said was "have a heart", in case you haven't noticed, America is having some problems right now (unemployment, deficit, unceasing wars etc) we CANT take on the problems of the world! The most that we can do is create a system in which people like my parents (who are willing to work hard AND play by the rules) can thrive, right now, our system gives advantages to illegals who ignore and break our country's laws, and now refuse to pay the consequence. I was born an American, I shall live as an American, and I shall die as an American!
