"Immigrants suspected of living in the U.S. illegally are routinely taken into custody by sheriff’s office deputies in Williamson County, according to a federal lawsuit, despite the agency’s having no authority to make such arrests. Attorney Elliott Ozment, who specializes in immigration law, filed the claim in mid-December on behalf of five plaintiffs who were taken into custody by the sheriff’s office in 2011." (01/03/12)
