DEMING, N.M. (AP) — A Mexican national is facing multiple immigration violations after authorities say he hitched a ride from the U.S. port of entry on a New Mexico public school bus.
The Deming Headlight reports (http://bit.ly/pjBcnW ) that U.S. Border Patrol-El Paso Sector spokesman Doug Mosier confirmed Tuesday that the 18-year-old used a Deming Public Schools bus from the Columbus Port of Entry to Deming to illegally enter the country.
He could not give specifics on the case, citing the ongoing investigation, but did say the Mexican national faces multiple immigration violations, including illegal entry and fraudulent use of a document.
Authorities were tipped off when the Deming Police Department was contacted.
Ray Trejo Jr., director of DPS transportation, said similar cases have happened from “time to time.”
