A Jackson Heights man who was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on a bus ride to visit his brother in Seattle last month has been reunited with his family.

Alfredo Flores, a 36-year-old father of three, was welcomed home by a rally in Jackson Heights yesterday after being released on bond. 

Flores, a Mexico-born undocumented immigrant, was arrested while riding a Greyhound bus from New York to Seattle on July 16. Unaware that the bus’s route cuts through Canada, Flores was detained at the border near Buffalo, N.Y.
