More than a week after the arrests of some 40 people in Western and Central North Carolina, additional accusations of improper behavior against federal immigration agents continue to stir tensions.
A lawyer claims agents refused to let him talk with his clients while they were being processed in Hendersonville on April 14.
Also in Hendersonville, immigrant advocates organized a protest at a public park on Friday where federal agents and members of local law enforcement were having a picnic.
In both cases, a spokesman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency responded with a version of facts or perspectives that challenged the statements made by those criticizing his agency.
