image Photographers' Rights At Issue As Arizona Community Rises Up Against Border Patrol Agents 120_border-arivaca.jpg original image ( 500x280) - by Jay Stanley, ACLU
The ACLU of Arizona on April 16 sent a letter (see PDF) to the U.S. Border Patrol demanding that the agency immediately stop interfering with the First Amendment rights of the residents of Arivaca, Arizona, to protest and to photograph government activities that are in plain view on a public street.

Due in part to widespread community outrage, the DCF decision is currently being challenged in Conn. state court. The 16-year-old’s advocates point out that the transgender youth does not have any adult criminal charges and is therefore unfit for a prison ...

Naturally, the targets of such raids might assume that their home is under attack by criminals. If the residents are armed and try to defend themselves, they are likely t...
