A bus driver for Concord Coach Lines was filmed falsely telling passengers lined up to board that they must be U.S. citizens to ride the bus. The ACLU of New Hampshire posted this video to Facebook of the driver in Concord, Maine, along with federal ICE agents intimidating passengers.
In the video, passengers wisely refuse to answer the ICE agent's questions about their citizenship, and question and mock the driver's claim.
ICE agents in the video are seen asking passengers if they are U.S. citizens. Some passengers respond by telling them they have no obligation to answer their questions. One agent walks away, saying, "Have a nice day."
The ACLU says "you have a right to refuse to answer any questions about your citizenship in circumstances like these."
New Hampshire Public Radio reports Concord Coach "says that employee misspoke."
