Border Patrol arrests two at Spokane Intermodal ​​​​​​Bus Station

U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested two Mexican nationals at the Spokane Intermodal Bus Station Tuesday.

While performing regular duties, the agents found out the Mexican nationals were in the U.S. illegally. Through further questioning, they learned that one of them had illegally entered the U.S. on August 4, near Sumas, Washington, and then traveled to Canada from Mexican and legally obtained a Canadian work permit.

The two people were taken to the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma.

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection uses a layered approach in enforcing Border Security. Our efforts on the border are the first of many layers,” stated Chief Patrol Agent Henry Rolon. “When it comes to security, a layered approach is always more effective. The bottom line is, entering the United States at a location other than a designated port of entry is a violation of law.”
