8 Bolivian nationals illegally present in the United States near the Pembina Port of Entry in North Dakota were apprehended and deported on June 20, 2020.
U.S. Border Patrol agents were notified by Sector radio communication of multiple subjects on foot west of the Pembina Port of Entry. Agents responded, wearing personal protective equipment, and located a group of eight approximately two miles west of the Port of Entry.
During a brief field investigation, it was determined that all subjects were citizens of Bolivia and that they had just crossed the international border from Canada without admission.
During processing, it was revealed the group was a family that had been previously found inadmissible in 2019. Upon the conclusion of processing all subjects were expelled back to Canada through the Emerson, Manitoba Port of Entry under the CDC Order which temporarily suspended the introduction of persons subject to the Order into the United States.
