Questions were raised on whether the CBP Agent profiled the woman before questioning her about her status.
Rio Grande City – A video surfaced on social media that depicted a woman being detained by a Customs and Border Protection Agent (CBP) at a Rio Grande City shopping center last Saturday. The woman, Leticia Garcia of Harlingen, TX, was leaving the shopping center with a family member, when US CBP Patrol units pulled them over and began questioning the pair. It was at this time that Garcia’s family member began filming the ordeal.
The family member can be heard asking the agents “Why are you harassing us?” as one of the agents instructs Garcia to exit the vehicle.
Despite the perceived profiling by the agents, the woman ultimately was determined to being in the country illegally.
