‘Latinos accuse agents of racial profiling’

Story here.

Latino residents — legal immigrants and U.S. citizens — say they increasingly are being pulled over, questioned and even detained because of their ethnicity. They say federal agents are engaging in illegal racial profiling as residents go about everyday activities — from waiting at bus stops to doing landscaping work to going for a walk.

But spokesmen for both U.S. Customs and Border Protection, also known as Border Patrol, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement say they don’t use racial profiling.
