The FBI has warned about a man intending to protest the US Open as part of an anti-vaccine mandate manifesto.
The man, identified as Virpaul Singh Mahil, 36, attempted to cross the border from Canada to New York on August 26, but border authorities initially rejected him after discovering marijuana gummy bears in his vehicle.
But Mahil, who hails from Ontario, escaped the authorities by driving into oncoming traffic to forcibly enter the United States.
The New York Joint FBI Task Force claimed Mahil possessed a “New World Order” manifesto and told border authorities that he intended to protest the US opening up because he was angry about vaccine mandates. .

Novak Djokovic, who last won the tournament in 2018 and reached the final in 2021, did not participate in this year’s tournament as he is not vaccinated against COVID-19. Mahil claimed to have been on Reddit to discuss his plans for him to visit the tournament.
Authorities tracked Mahil to Ulster County, but lost track of him once he entered Manhattan, according to NBC News.

Local police issued parking tickets for Mahil’s white Honda Civic on August 31 and September 1 in Chelsea, but the search for the vehicle on Friday proved unsuccessful.
Law enforcement officials said they did not believe Mahil had weapons or planned any kind of attack, but his actions at the border forced the FBI to issue an alert as a precaution.
