SOUTH BURLINGTON – A late November traffic stop conducted by the Chittenden County Sheriff’s Department (CCSD) resulted in the detainment of a migrant farmworker living in Franklin County by federal agents, according to a Burlington-based migrant advocacy group.

In a statement released early Monday morning, advocacy group Migrant Justice alleged a CCSD deputy reported Luis Ulloa, a 21-year-old farmworker living in Franklin County, to U.S. Border Patrol during a Nov. 22 traffic stop on Interstate 89 near South Burlington.
