Abstract The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon sued the federal government Wednesday in an attempt to find answers to the mysterious presence of immigration enforcement agents around Oregon’s courthouses.

The ACLU is asking a federal judge to order U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to reveal the number of people arrested or questioned by immigration agents at or near the state’s courthouses.

It seeks any policies the agency uses regarding which people to target, when agents wear plainclothes and the circumstances under which agents can refuse to identify themselves or refuse to answer questions from the people they’re detaining.
