OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska says a state probation office in Omaha has stopped allowing federal immigration agents to profile clients at the office.

The ACLU says it sent a warning letter to the probation office last month after receiving complaints from attorneys who said their Latino clients who met with probation officers were often subjected to questioning, without a warrant, by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

The ACLU says the probation office informed it Jan. 23 that it will require federal immigration agents to have a warrant to interact with probation office clients.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Shawn Neudauer calls claims the agency targets racial groups a “complete fabrication.”

Neudauer says the agency works cooperatively with other agencies and focuses on “sensible, effective immigration enforcement.”
