Border Patrol Accused in Lawsuit of Racially Targeting Latinos in Northern Ohio

A group of law school students in Ohio teamed up with a nonprofit law firm to filed a federal lawsuit against Border Patrol, alleging agents are targeting Latinos in the northern part of the state, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

The suit is seeking arrest records and polices following actions by agents in the Border Patrol office in northern Ohio.

“We have reason to believe that Border Patrol agents in Sandusky Bay are engaging in racial profiling to target individuals who appear Hispanic, for unlawful enforcement activities,” said Jason Luebbers, a third-year law student at OSU.

The suit was filed by Ohio State University’s law school and a nonprofit law firm, Advocates for Basic Legal Equality in Toledo.

The law firm sought the records on Aug. 18 but have yet to receive a response.

CBP officials couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.

DOJ Supports Special Needs Student Who Was Used As ‘Rape Bait’

Sparkman Middle School, Google Maps

The Justice Department is supporting the family of a girl who was raped after a teacher told her to act as bait to catch a suspected sexual predator at Sparkman Middle School in Toney, Ala.

The Daily Mail reports that the school had failed to discipline the suspected predator because he had not been caught in the act. So a teacher told a 14-year-old special needs student to meet the boy in a bathroom where he had allegedly had sexual encounters with other girls.

The ill-conceived plan took a horrifying turn when the suspect met her in a different bathroom, so no one came to help.

To support the family’s lawsuit against the Madison County School Board, the Department of Justice filed an amicus brief.

The filing alleges that the incident violated Title IX.

“School administrators knew the student’s extensive history of sexual and violent misconduct and were alerted to the substantial risk he posed,” the brief read.
