Sean Lewis writes: "We just won a suppression case at the BIA which you may want to share. The case involved a racially-motivated traffic stop by a Metro Nashville Police officer in a 287(g) jurisdiction. The BIA held that indeed the suppression in immigration proceedings could be linked to the initial traffic stop, even though the Metro Police Department is a separate agency from DHS/ICE and the Sheriff acting under 287(g). Remanded to consider whether the traffic stop was egregious under the Fourth Amendment."
