“Several people who arrived at our Migrant Aid Center in Nogales reported brutal treatment by Border Patrol
agents encountered in the desert. Two different people reported that agents slammed them to the ground
after lifting them by the neck, one person was dragged through thorns, and one was handcuffed, tied to a
horse, and forced to walk behind the horse for two hours.”
