An outreach worker for Catholic Charities of Wayne County was handcuffed on the streets of Sodus April 16 by U.S. Border Patrol agents after being called to the scene to translate for a woman in need… Gary Pudup, director of the Genesee Valley chapter of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said an American citizen -- like Mares, a naturalized native of Mexico -- does not have to produce identification simply because law enforcement officers request it. Yet Pudup noted that New York's criminal procedural law does state that an officer can ask for identification if there is suspicion of any criminal behavior. "The whole idea that an American citizen has to produce identification or be arrested, there's no basis for that in the law," Pudup said.
