Immigration and Customs Enforcement

A 38-year-old Tucson woman faces 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud in a case involving false claims made in connection with legal representation of people in immigration cases.

A U.S. Border Patrol agent accused of using his vehicle to knock over a fleeing Guatemalan migrant nearly two years ago in Arizona has reached a plea agreement.

Civil rights activists complain there’s potential for widespread abuse following confirmation that at least three states have scanned millions of driver’s license photos on behalf of Immigration and Customs Enforcement without the drivers’ knowledge or consent.

Public records obtained by the Georgetown Law Center on Privacy and Technology provided the first proof that ICE had sought such scans, which were conducted in Utah, Vermont and Washington.
