Mexican group sues Border Patrol for arresting illegal immigrants in school

Associated Press:

A Hispanic advocacy group has sued the -S Border Patrol and Albuquerque’s public school district and police.

The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund alleges three Hispanic students’ constitutional rights to an education were violated.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in US District Court in Albuquerque.

The lawsuit says the Del Norte High School students were questioned in March 2004 by a police officer and school administrators.

The lawsuit says the US Border Patrol was called to campus after it was learned the students were illegal immigrants.

The students have been ordered to leave the US by June 1st. The lawsuit contends that campuses are safe havens for students.

School, police and border patrol officials decline comment.
