Deming Schools Announces Plan To Prevent Illegal Border Crossings

Deming – Deming Public Schools has announced new safety measures after suspected undocumented immigrants boarded school buses on at least two occasions.

The Deming Headlight reports (http://bit.ly/v1OUgF) that Deming Public Schools Superintendent Harvielee (HAR'-vy-LEE') Moore presented last week the "District and Border Protocols" to district transportation department drivers.

Under the new rules, drivers will be required to observe the staging areas at the border and help identify students who are allowed to be on school buses.

Last month, suspected undocumented immigrants entered the U.S and then boarded a Deming public school bus. School officials later identified the suspects and turned them over to the U.S. Border Patrol.
