PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — TriMet is squashing rumors that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were on TriMet property and vehicles.

TriMet says they are aware of rumors on social media but say there is no truth to them.

“First, as we have said time and time again, TriMet does not work with ICE. Transit Police does not work with ICE,” TriMet spokesperson Roberta Altstadt said.

Altstadt continued and said the rumors are harmful to the immigrant community and lead to unnecessary fear and cause some who are dependent on transit not to ride.
