LAS VEGAS -- A number of alleged illegal immigrants were arrested in Las Vegas by border security officials.
A bus filled with nearly 60 people was parked in front of the American Lion and Tufesa bus station. It was headed through Arizona and Mexico. At 8:30 a.m., several unmarked vans and vehicles pulled up and officers in plain clothes boarded the bus.
Rogelio Gaytan, the bus station owner, saw the raid. "They started asking for documents from the people and the people who couldn't prove they had legal papers to be in the U.S. were taken away," he said.
Gaytan approached the officers and asked for their identification and they refused to comply. Sixteen people were escorted into vans and taken away.
Michael Flores, with Progressive Now, heard of the raid and arrived on scene. It was then that the officers identified themselves as agents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency out of Yuma, Arizona.
