ALERT: Border Patrol Thwarts Illegal Refugee Crossing on NORTHERN Border

DERBY LINE, Vt. – U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Newport Station apprehended five Romanian citizens as they attempted to illegally enter the United States in Derby Line, Vermont on Monday.

During the early morning hours of February 26, the Tactical Communications Center of the Swanton Border Sector received a report that a sedan had crossed the international border by driving across the lawn of the Haskell Free Library in Derby Line, Vermont. The Haskell Free Library was deliberately built on the border of Canada and the United States in 1904.
The vehicle traveled east on Caswell Avenue past an agent in his marked Border Patrol vehicle and drove onto the on-ramp onto the southbound lanes of Interstate 91. The agent followed the vehicle and performed a vehicle stop, where he saw that the vehicle contained three adults and two children. During questioning, the three adults in the vehicle admitted that they were citizens of Romania and that they did not possess any immigration documentation allowing them to enter or remain in the United States.

“This arrest is a great example of the vigilance our Border Patrol agents display on a daily basis,” said Newport Station Patrol Agent in Charge Richard Ross. “I’m proud of the work that agents perform every day to keep our border secure and our country safe.”
