El Paso/Southern New Mexico –As in previous years, dozens of trained community volunteer documenters took to the streets and public places throughout El Paso and Southern New Mexico for almost one month documenting allegations of law enforcement abuse in our border communities.
BNHR had 101 volunteers documenting abuses in many communities of El Paso and Dona Ana County, contributing with estimated total of 311 person-hours. Through this year’s documentation campaign, BNHR was able to identify patterns of alleged misconduct from local, state and federal law enforcement, such as wrongful detentions, and abuse of authority, verbal and psychological abuse, wrongful immigration law enforcement by local agencies and racial profiling.
On Wednesday December 18, the International Migrants Day, BNHR will present the data, the analysis and personal testimonies, putting emphasis in the troubling patterns and recognizing an unprecedented progress made by some local and federal law enforcement institutions.
