DENVER (AP) - The civil trial of three U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents accused of raiding a home near Aspen without a warrant is underway in Denver.

Testimony began Monday in Denver federal court.

A lawsuit filed in Denver federal court says agents Steve Turza, Christopher Carter and Vanessa Hipps targeted a family during a raid in March 2009.

Sugay Guerrero, who filed the lawsuit, says they violated her constitutional rights. She’s seeking unspecified damages.

The agents say they entered the home because they were concerned for residents’ safety when no one immediately answered the door.

Guerrero says they lied during the raid by saying they were police responding to a car crash.

Several people arrested in the raid were deported. Guerrero has applied for permanent residence in the U.S.
