Obama Administration Detains 19-Year-Old DREAMer Azucena for 76 Days

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

The Miami Herald reports that 19-year-old DREAMer Azucena (last name withheld) was racially profiled on a Greyhound Bus on her on her way to Miami to attend classes. Azucena stated that when she was apprehended Border Patrol agents boarded the bus, said that they were there to check IDs, and then made a B line right for her:  "It kind of looked like they already knew who they were looking for, because they went straight to the back where I was." Azucena, who has no criminal convictions of any kind, was taken to Broward Transitional Center (BTC) where she spent the next 76 days in detention. When she arrived at BTC she found that most of the 120 women in custody there had been encountered while traveling on Greyhound.


The Herald has reported that this incident represents a growing trend of the Obama administration detaining individuals for the offense of riding public transportation while brown.
