Brickbat: Far from the Border


Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers handcufffed Carlos Estrada Barrintos and his family and forced them to the floor of their Moore, Oklahoma, home. The agents insisted Estrada was an illegal alien. He is, in fact, an American citizen, and he and family members say agents showed them a photo of the man they were looking for and it looked nothing like Estrada. But only after checking his fingerprints did agents realize they had the wrong man.
