U.S. Border Patrol agents in Northern Ohio are accused of targeting Latinos and using racial slurs to describe them, WXYC NBC 3 reports.

The station reported that two federal lawsuits claims Latinos are targeted solely based on their race or appearance.

“Agents…are engaged in a pattern or practice of restraining, interrogating, and arresting persons regarding their  immigration status based on their being Hispanic,” attorneys wrote, in a 2009 lawsuit. “These seizures and interrogations have taken place in bus stations, gas stations, retail establishments, during traffic stops, (and) at soccer games.”

In court records, the Border Patrol denied any wrongdoing.
