The St. Lawrence County woman who videotaped an altercation with border patrol says Homeland Security agents visited her house while she was at her college graduation.
Jess Cooke of Ogdensburg posted a video on Facebook of what appears to be agents taking pictures of her car. The time stamp on the video, she says, coincides with when she was receiving her criminal justice degree from SUNY Canton on Saturday.
A U.S. Border Patrol spokesperson wouldn’t speak to the video of the agents. But she has acknowledged the initial incident during which border patrol agents tackled and apparently Tased Cooke during a roadside checkpoint on Route 37. Cooke’s video of the incident went viral after she posted it on Facebook. The Border Patrol says the investigation is ongoing.
