ICE Bites CBP Officer

The New York Times
reports that James Slaughteran, an outraged US Customs K-9
officer at the San Luis land port in Arizona has filed a lawsuit
in Federal District Court in Phoenix accusing the Department of
Homeland Security of violating his Fourth Amendment rights after
five armed ICE officers raided his home. "They bullied their way
into my house - the same organization that I work for, doing 16-
hour shifts, Mr. Slaughter said. "I bleed red, white and blue. I
serve my country, and then they do this to me?" The lawsuit is
seeking $500,000 from each of the five officers.
