Racial Profiling in Enforcement?

ICE took into custody 24 day laborers in Baltimore city two days ago, using methods that may amount to racial profiling, according to an internal e-mail from Washington-area members of the American Immigration Lawyers Assoc.:

"Witness accounts indicate that Latino workers were separated from other ethnic groups for questioning, and passers-by who appeared Latino were also being detained and questioned."

The e-mail called on members to help a local Latino group identify and support those apprehended, who now sit in Salisbury Detention Center, and address "the racial profiling issue which appears to have been very blatant."
