What does an Undocumented Person look like?

That's the question that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials in Atlanta might want to start asking themselves. It seems that ICE officials arrested and harassed five U.S. citizens in Atlanta on Sept. 1 as part of a raid on a poultry processing plant, and are being sued for their nefarious behavior, which included pulling a Texas-born woman from her car and insisting that she was really Mexican.

No one should be treated like this, and the heavy-handed tactics documented in the case suggests that ICE officers need to reassess their John Wayne bravado when they are trying to apprehend undocumented workers.
