High school coach crams house with foreign ringers in squalid scandal

What started as a few probing questions about a suspicious New Jersey high school basketball program has become an investigation by federal immigration authorities.

New Jersey’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement office — a division of the Department of Homeland Security — has opened a new investigation of Paterson Eastside’s hoops programs, according to NJ Advance Media. ICE officials are concentrating on how the program has been fed international players over the past six years and how the teenagers came — or were trafficked — to New Jersey.

Four months ago, NJ Advance Media reported players from Africa, South America and Puerto Rico had been brought stateside to play for Eastside’s teams since at least 2011, and that boys coach Juan Griles was housing — but apparently barely feeding — at least six of them. With the school district unable to issue proper immigration documents, they’re all at risk of deportation.

One thought on “Sordid high school basketball scandal now in ICE’s crosshairs

  1. What’s the problem…
    Patterson’s a sanctuary city – right? That means they get to decide which laws they want to follow and which ones they don’t, so everything’s cool.
    I don’t know what the big fuss is all about.
