Border patrol agents take custody of 13 illegal aliens who stopped in Valley

Published: Sun, August 7, 2011 @ 5:54 p.m.




Thirteen illegal aliens from Mexico, Cuba and Honduras found at a Beaver Township gas station are in the custody of border patrol agents in Erie, Pa.

Beaver police were called to the Pilot gas station on Market Street about 6:30 p.m. Saturday by a truck driver who was “very upset” that his vehicle was blocked by a white school bus at that location, said police Lt. Dan Valentine. The driver told police that the passengers in the bus were illegal aliens, Valentine said.

Police found the 15 people in the bus, as well as four others in two other vehicles traveling with those in the bus, eating and questioned them, Valentine said.

Officers had trouble understanding the 19 people, who spoke with Spanish accents, he said.

“They were getting nervous and wanted to avoid me,” he said. “We determined they might be illegal aliens.”

Beaver police called border patrol agents, who spoke by telephone with some of the people traveling and also suspected some might be illegal aliens, Valentine said.

Beaver police and the border patrol determined that 13 were illegal aliens, most of them from Mexico with a few from Cuba and Honduras, Valentine said.

The 19 were traveling from Indiana to Delaware to work on a watermelon farm along the Ohio Turnpike and got off for gas and food, he said.

The border patrol took the 13 into custody and back to Erie and the six others continued on their way to Delaware, Valentine said.

/ Beaver police called border patrol agents, /

I don't think police called border patrol agents.

Lots of confusion around law enforcement of borders.

ICE is technically who I believe they called.

Border Patrol are the folks physically (mainly) near border.

Hopefully, someone else clarifies these points and the article. Considering how remote we are from the southern border, immigration terminology is foreign around here.

Now, good work by the truck driver who called this in. But as truck driver he has a dog in this fight. Current legislation about to go into effect allows Mexican trucks to bring products way into the US versus historically just to border area.

This means those in far south border areas up to 200 miles in land are going to see Mexican jalopies delivering goods made in Mexico intended for US consumers. The same goods from the same companies that shuttered US plants and sent jobs down there so they could keep more of their money.

The phrase "illegal aliens" appears five times in this short article. There are no illegal human beings; however, there are undocumented immigrants/migrants. Get your labels straight and stop dehumanizing workers.

The correct term is Boarder Control Agents. ICE which I believe was created in 2005 or 2008 (just renamed) protects borders north and south and the Flordia Keys. The Erie Pa office is under the watch of Buffalo NY and there is usally an office were ever we have a boarder in the US within 100 miles. ICE employees the border control agents which they were called for years before we had to rename that group because some politition wanted more credit forcreating something. Sorry but the writter was correct. As for illegal aliens that is what they are if you study the definition. Thats not dehumanizing anything its calling it what it is. Said you have no time but to rip apart the facts.

Attis, call them whatever you want. THEY DONT BELONG HERE. They are paid under the table while they're here while their wives, girlfriends, and other female parasites that travel with them collect welfare. (OUR TAX DOLLARS).

I lived in Washington State for 12 years. Out there they are employed by the same companies that make the holiday wreaths that you buy around Christmas. They pick brush or do landscaping while they collect welfare and WIC. They don't have drivers licenses or car insurance. Crime rises, drunk driving goes up, IN FACT, one of these DRUNKS was running from the cops because they were driving drunk and hit and killed a little girl (maybe 3-4) riding her scooter in a quiet neighborhood (her mother was 10ft away). He didn't even stop. They said they were doing upwards of 100mph when he hit that girl. Anyway he lost control of the vehicle and ended up living just to be deported...3 months later he was back in the same area driving drunk again. Property values go down cause they don't take care of the property they squat in. THEY ARE NO GOOD! WE DONT NEED THEM! If they wanna come in this country do it LEGALLY. If not, they can stay in Mexico and deal with the cartels down there. You people wanna know what they do to towns and cities? Read some of the articles on www.kitsapsun.com. There are ALWAYS a few. Also I had a friend in Del Rio TX get murdered by these "undocumented immigrants". He worked border patrol after his Navy career. THESE "undocumented immigrants" come up here, break every law in the book, KILL PEOPLE, and disappear back into their holes we call Mexico. We have enough parasites of our own. We don't need more from another country!

calling them undocumented immigrants is like calling a drug dealer an unlicensed pharmacist. They are as we say in the business persons who illegally entered the US for whatever purposes, therefore are illegal or undocumented aliens and they are charged as such.

@Crimelander: No this article is correct. The police detained these individuals and turned them over to Border Patrol Agents from the Erie, PA Border Patrol Station, which is part of the Buffalo Sector of the United States Border Patrol.

Oh aren't we politically correct Attis. Being as I live just 20 minutes from our Southern Border, let me inform you of something. They are called Illegals', noting in the process that they are criminals, they are breaking the law. Now Illegal is not a race, it is a crime. Simple as that. And let me promise you this, too, Attis, they are coming to a town/city near you, so bend on over buddy, because the financial rape of your town/city is coming soon, don't believe me? Just ask the state of Texas which has paid out in just one year 1.2 BILLION dollars for the education of illegals, and over 100 MILLION dollars in just one year for emergency room health care for Illegals'. That does not include welfare, medicaid, incarceration, rent assistance, food stamp and the rest of the social services they receive. So take your pie in the sky liberal statement of there are no illegal aliens and come on down here and live. We will see what you call Illegals/criminals/law breakers then.

I am living in Utah now but I am from Girard and Austintown and still have family in Ohio. The illegal aliens here are demanding all of the citizens rights and are getting pretty loud and I am afraid that they will get violent soon. My advice to Ohio is to get tough on Illegal immigrants now.
