KALISPELL — MTN News wants to clarify unsubstantiated claims that were recently circulating online in the Flathead Valley what some people believe was a busload of immigrants being dropped off in the area.

The reports were brought to MTN's attention and we contacted the Flathead County Sheriff's Office, which was also notified and investigated the claims.

Sheriff Brian Heino says the bus was actually carrying Army National Guard members who were in the Flathead for training.

All of the people on the bus were legal U.S. citizens.

We have received reports that the same photos seen above supposedly showing "immigrants" and the bus have been posted on social media in other communities.
