Should Border Patrol Agents Be Able to Detain Journalists at the Border?
Do you think the U.S. Border Patrol should be able to interrogate journalists without cause?
A recent LA Times report revealed that border patrol agents have been stopping, searching, and in some cases detaining American journalist who have spent time in migrant caravans near Mexican border towns. Border Patrol officials maintain that these tactics are a necessary component of border security. Journalists and activists feel that these are intimidation tactics designed to deter the press from covering migrant caravans and border detention centers.
If the US Border Patrol is unfairly targeting journalists and activists, then this would constitute a violation of First Amendment secured freedoms of press and assembly.
