Border Patrol in the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state has reached a settlement on a lawsuit filed by two immigrant advocate groups which accused it of using racial profiling in stopping and questioning motorists. Every six months over a period of 18 months, the Border Patrol will have to provide the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project -- which brought the suit in conjunction with the ACLU -- with copies of the reports agents write up after each traffic stop in the peninsula.
