Report: Undocumented Ride Into U.S. On Deming School Bus

Deming – Four more suspected undocumented immigrants have entered Deming aboard a Deming Public School's bus. The incident occurred a week after a Mexican national was arrested for entering the country illegally and riding a school bus to town.

Deming Public School transportation office director Ray Trejo says once the four were in Deming, the school bus driver notified the school district which in turn notified the Deming Police Department.

Police Chief Michael Carillo tells The Deming Headlight (http://bit.ly/pYLoyW ) the case was turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol because of the immigration issues.

Trejo says the district wants to be told at the port of entry if there's any question regarding students that aren't on the roster or if there's any questions at all.

The school district contracts with two local bus transportation firms.
