The Bodycam Video At The Heart Of Debate Over Vermont Police's Relationship With Feds

When a local sheriff in northern Vermont pulled over two Mexican farmworkers last August for a traffic violation, he immediately called for the U.S. Border Patrol.

The two men will soon be deported. And immigrant rights advocates say more detentions and deportations are likely under a new Vermont policy that governs cooperation between state and federal law enforcement.

Fueling the debate is bodycam video of the August traffic stop, as VPR's John Dillon reports.
