Details are sketchy concerning a busload of 19 illegal immigrants stopped by deputies with the Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office this past Friday.

What is known is the driver was unable to produce a U.S. Driver’s license and presented deputies with a Mexican voter registration card. The bus was pulled over for swerving over the center line, GTCS Capt. Brandon Brinks told The Midwesterner.

Brinks added that the deputies issued the bus driver a citation before contacting U.S. Border Patrol due to the language barrier.

According to UpNorthLive, the bus was stopped on the side of the road for approximately five hours.

“On Friday, U.S. Border Patrol was contacted by the Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s office to assist after a bus transporting 19 undocumented non-citizens was pulled over by deputies for erratic driving,” according to an email received by The Midwesterner from a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson.

“Subsequently, the 19 undocumented non-citizens were transported to the Sault Ste. Marie Border Patrol Station where they were processed and served a Notice To Appear. The individuals have been placed in immigration removal proceedings,” the spokesperson added, noting that additional information cannot be released due to the ongoing investigation.

Last week, The Midwesterner reported that the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Development was asking state residents to house migrants.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer, said in a statement. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

Potential migrant candidates are of Cuban, Haitian, Nicaraguan or Venezuelan nationality, according to the Gov. Gretchen Whitmer-led agency.

That request prompted a sarcastic response from Tom Barrett, a Republican running for a seat in the Michigan House of Representatives.
