ACLU of WA objecting to Border Patrol’s practice of stopping all cars within 100 miles of international border and questioning passengers about their nationality.
We explain that police departments that engage in this type of immigration enforcement violate both the federal Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure and the Washington Constitution’s prohibition on warrantless arrests.
