Border Patrol to Reveal 18 Months of Traffic Stop Records After ACLU Lawsuit

The U.S Border Patrol, as part of a lawsuit alleging the agency racially profiles people, has agreed to share records of each traffic stop in Washington’s Olympic Peninsula for 18 months, ABC News reports.

The ACLU has alleged in a lawsuit that Border Patrol agents were pulling over people without reasonable suspicion because of the way people look.

The agency also pledged to retrain its Olympic Peninsula agents on the Fourth Amendment, ABC News wrote.

Still, the Border Patrol has admitted no wrongdoing.

“This agreement confirms that Border Patrol can’t pull over a vehicle because of the driver’s race or ethnicity or simply because the person lives in proximity to the border,” said Matt Adams, legal director of the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project. “We hope that the reporting requirements and the additional training will ultimately provide greater accountability, and restore a measure of dignity for folks who live in this region.”
