Border Patrol refutes story of confrontation on Las Vegas-bound bus

Updated Tuesday, June 19, 2018 | 4:26 p.m.

The U.S. Border Patrol is refuting a story in the Daily Mail of a woman telling how she confronted agents after they demanded to see her visa documentation while on a bus from California to Nevada.

The Border Patrol said the alleged confrontation was fabricated.

“Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents take their sworn duties to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the United States very seriously,” Yuma Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Carl Landrum said in a news release. “Stories like this that attempt to pit us against our community need to be fact checked before they are printed as truth.”
