Req for DOJ investigation Babeu
This letter was sent to DOJ by a Hispanic Civil Rights group, Respect-Respeto. The group seeks an investigation of alleged abuse of power by Sheriff Paul Babeu. In the letter, the group says it wants to know whether Babeu, in allegedly threatening to deport his former boyfriend, abused his position of power and authority.
Respect-Respeto notes immigrants are commonly intimidated with threats of deportation by lovers, bosses and landlords.
Stay tuned for a Justice response.
