ICE agent watches bus passengers -- screenshot

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.

“I doubt that,” passengers can be heard telling the driver who very confidently insisted only American citizens were allowed to ride the bus.

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.”

"Have you experienced any extra fund-raising surge over the weekend?" O'Donnell asked.

"Well, Lawrence, we have gotten tremendous support and we really appreciate it," Harrison replied.

"Do you believe you have the resources and the campaign team and the ground troops you need in South Carolina to actually pull this off?" O'Donnell asked later in the interview.

Outrage against Dianne Feinstein as potential Judiciary chair comes out against Senate reform

Published

on

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) received harsh criticism on Monday after coming out against Senate reform of the filibuster.

“I don't believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose," Feinstein argued.

"It is not often used, it's often less used now than when I first came, and I think it's part of the Senate that differentiates itself," Feinstein falsely claimed.
