Report Hits CBP for Abusive Treatment of US Citizens at Ports of Entry

Rate this Entry
By chance, I was listening to my public radio station this morning and heard a shocking special hour long report on abuses at CBP ports of entry on the Canadian border. The story centered around the abusive treatment American citizens who happen to be Muslim face at the hands of CBP port officers. The report outlined how families with young kids are held for hours on end in freezing temperatures and interrogated like criminals, how people are subjected to unbelievably invasive body cavity searches without warrants and how the agency refuses to comply with Freedom of Information Act laws when reporters or civil liberties groups try to investigate abuses.

As an immigration lawyer, I've heard many of these allegations before, but the report still shocked me.

To hear the different segments of the report, go here.
