Abstract

There have been multiple cases of border Patrol Agents abusing their power. It is important to understand the rights that we have because of the fourth amendment. In some instances, border patrol agents do not have the right to stop and search a person. Agents have no right to stop someone based on their race, culture, or language that is being spoken. An example of this type of racial profiling took place in May 2018 in Montana when two U.S Citizens were detained by a border Patrol Agent based solely on the color of their skin and the language being spoken. This is an obvious example of racial profiling and these agents should be held accountable for their actions. I plan to research, analyze, and apply the fourth amendment to support my opinion.
