Jamaican nabbed while trying to enter United States illegally

ROCHESTER, Aug 3, CMC – The United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency says it has detained a Jamaican national for illegally entering the country.

CBP said Adolph Boh Stewartson, presented a fake Jamaican driver’s license to agents and claimed that he had entered the US on March 11, 2016, in New York City.

migrationStewartson could not, however, recall the name of the airport in New York City he had arrived at CBP said.

“The subject also claimed he had a passport with a US visa, but did not have it with him,” CBP said, noting that “immigration records revealed no information on Stewartson, or a valid visa to be legally present in the US”.

 “Many people use fraudulent documents or claim to have genuine documents in order to elude authorities,” said Rochester Station Patrol Agent In- Charge Michael Werthman.

“Our agents are always vigilant in identifying individuals who are illegally present in the US,” he added.

CPS said that the Jamaican will soon appear in court in New York later this month.
