Undocumented immigrant are being stripped of their possessions by Border Patrol agents before being deported back to Mexico with ID or money, advocacy groups allege.

In a complaint with Homeland Security, the ACLU of New Mexico and a coalition of organizations allege that undocumented immigrants were deported with no belongings in 26 cases, CBS News reports. 

“DHS will review the complaint once we receive it,” DHS spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said. “DHS has strict standards in place to ensure that detainees’ personal property – including funds, baggage and other effects – is safeguarded and controlled while they are in detention and returned to them when they are released from CBP/ICE custody or removed from the United States. Any allegation of missing property will be thoroughly investigated.”

The groups say immigrants are sometimes sent without their belongings to cities in Mexico where they have no acquaintances.
