Border Patrol agents in Orchard Park, N.Y., arrested a group of illegal aliens who were trespassing at an elementary school. Several of the illegal aliens had been previously deported and had criminal records.

An officer from the Orchard Park Police Department responded to call at an elementary school where thirteen male subjects were reportedly trespassing. The officer contacted Border Patrol agents to investigate the background of the suspects, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials.

The Orchard Park police officer had requested assistance because of the time of day and the large number of subjects involved in the alleged trespassing incident at the elementary school.

Agents from the Buffalo Border Patrol Station responded and conducted a field interview with the 13 individuals. They learned that all of the men were Mexican citizens. Ten of the thirteen were determined to be illegally present in the United States. Agents determined that most of the men had previously been deported and several had criminal records. The nature of their criminal offenses was not disclosed in the statement.

Agents arrested eight of the illegal aliens and transported them to a federal detention facility in Batavia, N.Y. The other two illegal aliens were released with instructions to contact the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Jessica Vaughn, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart Texas’ Lana Shadwick in July that Canada would “become even more of a launching point for illegal entry into the United States” following a new Canadian policy allowing Mexican nationals to travel to Canada without a visa.

She told Shadwick that this new policy raises the possibility that Mexican nationals, and “especially those Mexicans who have been deported already from the United States, or anyone who fraudulently obtains a Mexican passport, might seek to enter the United States illegally from Canada across our largely unguarded northern border.”

In another incident along the Canadian border in New York, a Mexican woman was arrested by Border Patrol agents just after she illegally crossed the northern border Breitbart Texas reported two weeks ago. A Canadian citizen was arrested by CBP officers at the Port of Mooers port of entry for allegedly helping her in her illegal crossing. The Canadian man was driving a car across the border that was loaded with the woman’s clothing and documentation.
