According to an AP article on  “Immigration Judge A. Ashley Tabaddor ruled last week that federal agents illegally detained Gregorio Perez in last year’s raid on Micro Solutions Enterprises because they did not have a warrant for his arrest or ‘reasonable suspicion’ he was in the country illegally.”

Agents who arrest undocumented aliens should be held to a standard of either “reasonable suspicion” or a warrant.  Such a standard would help prevent racial profiling and add some respect and humanity to the removal process.  Hopefully, the era of unlawful arrests and the Sheriff Arpaio-style of embarassing and dehumanizing individuals for personal gain will come to an end in the near future.
