Immigrant Rights Groups: Border Patrol Mistreating Children in Documented Cases of Abuse

Border Patrol agents are accused of mistreating children in 116 reported cases of abuse, according to a compliant filed by Customs and Border Protection.

CNN reports that the cases range from sexual abuse to holding young undocumented immigrants in cramped, dirty condition, CNN reports.

The cases span several years.

“Given these longstanding problems, and in light of the rising number of unaccompanied children seeking relief from dangerous conditions in their home countries, the need for broad and lasting agency reforms is clear,” the complaint says.

A CBP spokesman said the agency takes “extraordinary measures” to keep children safe.

“Mistreatment or misconduct is not tolerated,” he added.

The complaint was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and four immigrant-rights groups.
