Real America’s Voice crew handcuffed and investigated while illegal border crossers watched

CENTENNIAL, Colo.March 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Real America’s Voice investigative journalist Ben Bergquam and his production crew were detained at gunpoint by the U.S. Border Patrol on Friday at the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona while filming an episode of the network’s Law and Border program. Bergquam and his team have spent the past year reporting from the border and had previously never encountered such aggressive tactics by law enforcement, though they work regularly with numerous agencies.

Shocking video footage from RAV reveals how Bergquam and the RAV photojournalists were detained by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents – alleging they were forced into patrol cars and then investigated at gunpoint with their hands on their heads – while illegal border crossers were ignored.

I have been to this section of the border many times, both with law enforcement escorts and without, and have never had an encounter like this,” RAV investigative journalist Ben Bergquam said. “While we have complete respect for law enforcement, we were stunned to be detained at gunpoint while illegal immigrants looked on right after crossing our southern border. This incident reveals the backwards priorities of our leaders in Washington, unfortunately, as the border crisis worsens by the day.”
