Settlement of Pennsylvania State Police immigrant profiling lawsuit results in policy changes

Pennsylvania State Police have settled a lawsuit that claimed troopers improperly enforce federal immigration law. The settlement paid $850,000 to 10 plaintiffs and the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania. It also requires the state police to change its policies, prohibiting troopers from prolonging traffic stops and ending the practice of investigating motorists’ immigration statuses while checking their driver’s licenses.
