4 in Nashville sue immigration agency over raid

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Four Nashville residents have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit over a raid carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents who were looking for a fugitive.

Nashville attorney Elliott Ozment filed the lawsuit on behalf of plaintiffs who say ICE agents came to their apartment last year without a warrant and threatened to break down the door and drag them out.

A spokesman for the federal agency said ICE does not comment on pending litigation, according to The Tennessean.

Ozment said the agency routinely goes to addresses where someone they're looking for hasn't lived in some time, arresting others incidentally.

The plaintiffs are Pablo Cahuec-Castro, Myra Leticia Juarez, Ottoniel Perez-Piox and Maria del Rosario Osorio.
