According to Fox News Latino, this is the latest in a series of “legal actions taken against U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Border Patrol from immigrant advocacy groups, who have long sought to reform the agency’s conduct on the southern and northern border. The cases involve federal administrative complaints against the agency and lawsuits filed in federal court.”
“Whether someone is a citizen or non-citizen, doesn’t give the Border Patrol any legal justification to unlawfully arrest someone or beat them up. The constitution and laws govern all folks, not just those with legal immigration status,” said Matt Adams of the Seattle-based Northwest Immigrant Rights Project.
