“A Guatemalan man crossed into the United States and was detained in  the desert. The border patrol agents who arrested them were driving a four wheeler. They drove really fast, right towards the immigrants. The immigrants had  to jump out of the way to avoid being run over. The Guatemalan man fell over when  he jumped out of the way. Despite not resisting arrest, an agent put his hand around  the migrant’s neck and pulled him to handcuff him. The agents were laughing as they handcuffed him. Despite cold temperatures, he was made to remove his outerwear and walk only in a t-shirt. He was forced to walk 20 minutes handcuffed.  Afterwards, he was transported to Tucson and promptly expelled.”
