U.N. Told of U.S. Border Patrol Abuses

Mistreatment and even deaths at the hands of agents


With killings by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents on the rise, the American Civil Liberties (ACLU) presented testimony to the United Nations Thursday on human rights violations along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The ACLU presentation comes a week after a top UN human rights official said that the U.S. has used excessive force in dealing with immigrants along the border and needs to properly investigate the recent string of killings.
