Groups may take legal action to stop immigration crackdown

LOS ANGELES -- AP -- Hispanic community leaders and civil rights groups say they may take legal action to stop a U.S. Border Patrol crackdown in San Bernardino and Riverside, Calif., counties. Activists met in San Bernardino Tuesday to coordinate their efforts against the Border Patrol -- saying they will file lawsuits or engage in civil disobedience if the arrests of suspected illegal immigrants continue.

Agents have arrested more than 200 suspected illegal immigrants in the two counties since June 4.

Border Patrol officials say the arrests are a result of a shift in tactics by one station in Temecula and not a new national crackdown. An agency spokesman says the protests would not stop the inland patrols.

Carlos Giralt-Cabrale, the Mexican consul in San Bernardino says the arrests appear to be localized incidents and not a general shift in policy.
