Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit Filed Against Dallas County, Sheriff Lupe Valdez over Immigration Holds, Bonds

Dianne Solís, Dallas Morning News, Oct. 27, 2015- "A federal civil rights suit was filed yesterday by 16 plaintiffs against Dallas County and Sheriff Lupe Valdez over bonds and the use of immigration holds requested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.  The suit raises Fourth, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment issues at a time when others around the country have questioned and litigated against the use of such holds, or detainers, by local law enforcement."
