TUCSON, Arizona — A complaint filed against the Border Patrol is calling for an investigation into allegations that the federal agency wrongfully detained residents and violated their civil rights.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona filed its latest complaint against the Border Patrol on Tuesday, saying agents conducting “roving patrols” and border checks took people into custody and detained them for days in squalid, overcrowded detention facilities.

Ten cases were outlined in the complaint involving people the ACLU says were detained but never charged.

In one case, the ACLU says a Phoenix man was detained for three days after allegedly picking up a hitchhiker 50 miles north of the Mexico border. The man was required to pay $3,000 to have his vehicle returned.
