Arivaca residents who are concerned about a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint near their community now have a national legal organization by their side.
The American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Arizona has sent a letter to the U.S. Border Patrol chief agent in Tucson to request the removal of a checkpoint on Arivaca Road near the town of Amado.
The letter followed an effort among some Arivaca residents and the humanitarian rights group, People Helping People, to monitor and document checkpoint activity. It included protesting the checkpoint near its location.
