Riders on a morning commuter train heard a very strange announcement over the intercom on Monday. Commuters said a worker on the 6:54 a.m. train from Bayhead announced that agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security were on board. Many riders confirmed that the worker said those agents were “looking for illegals and other criminals.”
NJ Transit said the crew member will be suspended pending the outcome of their investigation. The agency did not identify the worker or specify their role.
NJ Sen. Bob Menendez said “if true,” the incident would be “outrageous racial profiling that is un-American and makes us less safe.” He said his office is looking into the matter.
What's more shocking, the fact that ICE may have been looking for illegals or the fact that a Transit worker thought it best to warn those illegals that Federal agents were there?
