Grant County officials issued a public statement following a public outcry from immigration advocates earlier this month. Northwest Immigration Rights Project along with other advocacy groups, showed up to the Grant County Courthouse in Ephrata on April 1 to cry foul over the recent border patrol arrests of several illegal aliens who showed up to criminal court hearings that weren’t related to their illegal status. Supporters called the nature of the arrests "unethical" and believed it was a poaching-like technique. This video courtesy of Crosscut Media shows another man who was arrested outside of the Moses Lake Municipal Court around the time of his hearing. iFIBER ONE News attempted to question the groups who support the arrest victims and their families, but they could not be reached for comment.
