ICE to be held accountable

 NBCNews reports that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has filed a FOIA lawsuit against ICE to obtain the release of government records regarding arrests in early 2016 of Central American immigrants in Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas. SPLC believes the records will show how and why ICE pursued the 121 women and children who were arrested and placed in a Dilley, Texas, family detention center; all but 12 families were deported. “There are serious questions about whether ICE agents’ conduct during these raids violated the Constitution,” stated Lisa Graybill, Deputy Legal Director for SPLC. “We cannot allow ICE, the nation’s largest law enforcement agency, to avoid accountability and violate the federal law by withholding these records.”
