Christian Ramirez of American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization that tracks border violence, said the blame lies on both sides of the border. Ramirez said smuggling cartels trying to push their goods into the U.S. are clashing with an ever-expanding collection of law enforcement officers on the U.S. side, leaving illegal immigrants simply looking for work caught in the crossfire.
We feel there are other methods that can be used, are effective and don't restrict a person's liberty for a civil immigration violation," said Amy Gottlieb of the American Friends Service Committee. "We much prefer that ICE employ community-based alternatives to detention."
