Geez, I just hope nobody asks them for their papers since that would be racist and Islamophobic or something.
A cargo ship carrying stowaways from Pakistan – some believed to be dead – arrived at Port Newark, NJ, The Post has learned.
US Customs agents and Coast Guard personnel took charge of the scene after Port Authority police swarmed the port at Berth 57 to meet the ship, a PA source said.
PA police were tipped off to the stowaways aboard the Villa De Aquarius, but officials did not say how.
“They’re coming in to Port Newark, that’s what we know at this point,” a source said.
A PA police spokesman did not immediately respond to calls.
Police were notified about 7:20 a.m., law enforcement source said.
“There is a faint knocking coming out of a container very close to the bottom of the pile.”
Take your time searching. They’ll be there awhile.
