Border Patrol agents have abused illegal immigrants and systematically denied them the opportunity to contact the Mexican Consulate, according to a report by a pro-immigration reform group, The Arizona Daily Star reports.

The report by the Kino Border Initiative says one in four illegal immigrants surveyed said they were abused in some way by Border Patrol, the Daily Star reported.

Officials at Customs and Border Protection declined to comment to the Daily Star.

“We are very concerned about this situation because we feel it’s a violation of human rights,” said the Rev. Sean Carroll, executive director of the initiative.
