ACLU and Border Action Network Create Border Reality Checkpoint

Posted By on Mon, Jul 7, 2014 at 5:00 PM

ACLU of Arizona and the Border Action Network have put together a clever way to respond and teach folks their rights when stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint.

The project, Border Reality, is Wednesday, July 9, from 7:39 to 10:30 a.m. at Armory Park, 221 S. 6th Ave.:

Communities border-wide, report feeling treated with suspicion by CBP and subjected to unjustified detention, invasive questioning and searches, verbal and physical abuse, excessive force and profiling. We’re here to remind individuals of their rights in the border region and listen to concerns of abuse. This effort to educate people to know their rights will be taking place in California, Texas and New Mexico border towns on July 9th as well.

Join this movement by volunteering with us July 9th from 730AM-1030AM, if interested in participating please contact Dulce Juarez at djuarez@acluaz.org or call 602-773-6016.

P.S. for more info about BP Checkpoints check out this New York Times article, it’s a great piece leading up to our day of action on July 9th!
