Back in March, I wrote a short article regarding residents of Arivaca and Amado in Southern Arizona who have come together to form People Helping People In The Border Zone. After suffering years of harassment, intimidation and overtly illegal acts by U.S. Border Patrol agents operating several suspicionless internal roadblocks in the area, residents formed the organization in order to seek answers to their questions, research the effectiveness of the roadblocks for their alleged 'lawful' purpose and ultimately to hold the Border Patrol accountable for the actions of its agents.
What happens next of course is largely dependent on how the Border Patrol responds (assuming it responds at all) to the formal complaint. If history is any guide however, there wont be any surprises there.
Given the time line and the exposure, it makes one wonder if Agent Huey wasn't re-assigned to a different roadblock in Southern Arizona in order to take her out of the spotlight for her first amendment violating actions near Arivaca only to run into me at her new assignment. As such, it looks like the Border Patrol might be taking a page out of the playbook of other organizations that like to shuffle people around to new locations after they're caught engaging in illegal acts at their original locations.
A quick online search for Agent Rosalinda Huey indicates she has also served as a PR mouth piece for the Border Patrol in the past. Perhaps moving her to a new location in Arizona after violating the rights of roadblock monitors near Arivaca was just thanks for a job well done down-playing or hiding information from the public that demonstrates the Border Patrol in a bad light while she served as a public relations officer.
