Safety on the Bus: Washington AG Sues Greyhound for Allegedly Allowing Warrantless CBP Immigration Sweeps

  • Washington AG Bob Ferguson sued inter-city bus company Greyhound Lines Inc. (“Greyhound”) for allegedly allowing U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) agents to board its buses and conduct searches in violation of Washington’s Consumer Protection Act and Law Against Discrimination.
  • According to the complaint, Greyhound allegedly continues to allow CBP agents to conduct warrantless and suspicionless immigration sweeps on its buses without providing adequate notice to its customers of the possibility of such sweeps, despite Greyhound’s public statements that it would no longer allow the CBP to board its buses.
  • The complaint seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties, restitution, and attorneys’ fees and costs.
