ICE Shooter Subject of Complaints

March 02, 2012  | 

A federal agent who was killed after shooting his supervisor in a workplace confrontation in California had been the subject of complaints by immigrant advocates for allegedly using coercive tactics with immigrants after a 2010 raid, reports the Associated Press.

In an amended complaint, the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California asked a federal court in Los Angeles to order Immigration and Customs Enforcement to turn over records related to a worksite raid overseen by agent Ezequiel Garcia.

An ACLU attorney had complained more than a year ago that Garcia arrested a worker for failing to disclose her immigration status in an interview with investigators following the raid at Orange County's Terra Universal Inc. Garcia also arrested another worker months later on what may have been a retaliatory tip from his recent employer.
