LULAC offers reward for information regarding mistreatment by immigration officials

News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – A reward is now being offered for information on alleged abuse of migrants by U.S. immigration officials.

It comes from LULAC, the League of United Latin American Citizens.

The group is offering $25,000 for information leading to an arrest, indictment and conviction of Border Patrol or ICE agents who have abused migrants in their custody.

The reward is a reaction to those reports about a Facebook group of agents reportedly cracking jokes about migrants dying and making derogatory remarks about Latina members of Congress.

“Here you have these rogue Border Patrol agents and ICE agents that are dehumanizing them, calling them gnats, saying let’s go happy hunting. Basically, saying why don’t we kill them all.” Says Domingo Garcia, LULAC national president.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan says DHS already knows about the Facebook group and is investigating the issue.

LULAC’s president wants agents who show a disregard for the lives of migrants to be fired.
