Massena, NY, Mar 15, 2013 — A Pakistani man picked up by Massena Border Patrol agents earlier this week is being prosecuted for entering the U.S. illegally.
In a press release, the border patrol says it responded to a call for assistance from the St. Regis Mohawk Tribal police late Wednesday night, near Hogansburg, New York. The Tribal Police had encountered the man, who is a national from Pakistan, while on patrol in the Akwesasne community.
When border agents interviewed the man, they determined he was in the U.S. illegally. He was transported to the Massena Border Patrol Station for processing, and is now being prosecuted.
He faces federal court charges of the Entry without Inspection.
