Ohio Woman Sues FBI, Claiming She Was Mishandled Because of Her Ethnicity

DETROIT — A 36-year-old Ohio woman is suing the FBI and other federal agencies, saying she was removed from a flight in Detroit on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, manhandled, strip-searched and thrown into a dirty cell for more than four hours, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Shoshana Hebshi, who the Free Press describe as half-Jewish and half-Arab, says she and two Indian-American men were yanked from a Frontier Airlines flight after it landed in Detroit.

Federal agents handcuffed the trio, escorted them off the plan and pushed them into vehicles.

The ACLU filed the suit Tuesday in Detroit.

“I was frightened and humiliated,” said Hebshi, a freelance journalist and mother of 7-year-old twins. “As an American citizen and a mom, I’m really concerned about my children growing up in a country where your skin color and your name can put your freedom and liberty at risk at any time.”

It’s not the good news Prince William County has been waiting for, but it’s a good step.

The county, which is a candidate for a new FBI headquarters, will be home to a new firing range for law enforcement, including federal agents, the Washington Business Journal reports.

The FBI gave the county $150,000 to get the effort moving, the Journal wrote.

Under an agreement between the FBI and county, the bureau wants permission to use the facility, but not until the existing range, which is old and cramped, is replaced.

The Journal wrote that the funding will pay for two 50-point handgun ranges and a rifle range.

Not even 39-foot-high speed boats with 1,200 horsepower is enough for Border Patrol to hunt down all smugglers along the U.S. coast 36 miles north of Tijuana, Mexico, Fox News reports.

Agents are now asking for local residents to help in the hunt.

“We are actively pursuing this and we are asking for the public’s help because we can’t be everywhere,” agent Edward Cleary said during a Del Mar City Council meeting on Jan. 14, according to The Coast News.

The feds need more eyes looking out for boats that drop off drugs along the coast to getaway trucks, Fox News wrote.

T.J. Bonner, who led the labor union for Border Patrol agents for two decades, is accused of defrauding the union out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, U-T San Diego reports.

Bonner, known for his fearless criticism over government policy, has filed numerous pretrial motions in an attempt to get the case dismissed.

For one, Bonner claims the search warrants used against him were invalid. He also says the agents who handled the probe had no authority to do so, U-T San Diego wrote.

Bonner, 59, who led the National Border Patrol Council from 1989 to 201, has pleaded not guilty to charges of wire fraud and conspiracy.

U-T San Diego reports that Bonner is accused of filing false claims for reimbursements for wages, meals and travel. In some cases, investigators said, Bonner was visiting a mistress instead of doing union work.

ACLU Lashes Out at FBI for Refusing to Release Details of Warrantless GPS Spying

The ACLU is incensed that the FBI won’t hand over details of how agents have used warrantless GPS trackers on cars to monitor suspects, Salon.com reports.

Responding to a request for public information, the FBI redacted virtually every word from the records, saying the information is privileged, Salon.com reports.

The ACLU wants to see other tracking methods used by federal agents following a Supreme Court ruling that determined GPS trackers require a search warrant. The group also wants to know how the FBI plans to retrieve GPS trackers already on cars.

“The Justice Department’s unfortunate decision leaves Americans with no clear understanding of when we will be subjected to tracking—possibly for months at a time—or whether the government will first get a warrant,” wrote Catherine Crump, an ACLU staff attorney.

Editorial: Immigration Reform Heads in More Sensible Direction

Deseret News
Editorial

Utah is deporting fewer people, and that’s a good thing.

In 2012, requests for deportation were down by 25 percent from 2011, and current trends predict a similar downturn this year. Scarce resources in the judicial system account for some of this, but there are other factors at work that suggest a more pragmatic approach to immigration going forward.

It’s worth noting that one of the reasons fewer people are being deported is that there are fewer illegal immigrants to deport. The vast majority of people who enter the country illegally are doing so to improve their personal circumstances, and the wobbly recovery has dried up the economic incentives that enticed border crossers in years past. Our immigration system ought to include avenues to accommodate those who want to cross our borders simply to seek a better life. Harsh remedies like deportation ought to be reserved for those who enter the country illegally with more nefarious purposes in mind.
