Amnesty International: Suspend Immigration Enforcement, Halt Human Rights Abuses

Amnesty International USA is calling on the Obama Administration to suspend and review all immigration enforcement programs to halt what it describes as "a pattern of human rights violations." In a new report, "In Hostile Terrain: Human Rights Violations in Immigration Enforcement in the U.S.Southwest," the organization highlights "systemic failures of federal, state and local authorities to enforce immigration laws" equitably and without racial and ethnic profiling. The Report is based on an intensive study of conditions in Arizona and Texas.
