Statement Regarding CBP
While we are required to comply with the law by allowing Border Patrol agents to board our buses when they ask to do so, we do not support or coordinate these searches, nor are we happy about them. We understand that this practice negatively impacts our customers, and we have had conversations with the Border Patrol to determine if there is anything that can be done to balance the enforcement of federal law with the dignity and privacy of our valued customers. We have also been in contact with the ACLU for the past few months in order to work towards a solution.
Greyhound is a private company caught in the middle of an issue that is not in our control. Our drivers face arrest and fines for obstructing these agents, and we would not want to put their safety, or the safety of our passengers at risk by attempting to physically stop a federal agent from boarding.
