A big event is planned Thursday in Rochester to stop Border Patrol agents from raiding buses and trains to try and find undocumented immigrants.

A big event is planned Thursday in Rochester to stop Border Patrol agents from raiding buses to try and find undocumented immigrants.

Last month, random people were questioned by Border Patrol agents on an Amtrak train in Syracuse. Some argue this is a civil rights violation and racial profiling.

The raids are legal under federal law as long as it's within 100 miles of a border.

"They can pretty much do anything they want to," says immigration attorney Anthony Guidice. "If you piss them off they can search you, cuff you, put you into custody and keep you there for 24 hours just to teach you a lesson if you get uppity with them."

Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo are all within that 100 mile radius.

Immigration groups are expected to deliver a letter to Greyhound and Trailways, calling on the companies to prevent those raids.

The event is happening outside the Rochester bus station on Cumberland Street at 12:15 p.m. Thursday.
