Washington state sues Greyhound over immigration searches

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The state of Washington is suing Greyhound Lines Inc. for letting federal immigration agents board buses in Spokane, Washington, in search of undocumented immigrants. The state filed the lawsuit Monday in Spokane seeking a court order prohibiting the checks and penalties to hold the company accountable for its past conduct. Greyhound said it had told the federal government that the company does not consent to the search of its buses. ACLU chapters in 10 states wrote to Greyhound in 2018 to express their concern with passengers being pulled off buses and arrested.
