Community Report: Campaign Documents Systemic Racial Discrimination At Arizona Border Patrol Checkpoint

This study of one U.S./Mexico border checkpoint makes findings that should not be surprising:

"The most significant findings to emerge from the first two months of monitoring relate to Border Patrol’s disparate treatment of Latino motorists. The data collected by monitors indicated significant racial disparities in the ways agents interact with motorists and strongly suggest that Border Patrol is engaged in a pattern and practice of racial profiling of Latino motorists at the Arivaca Road checkpoint."
