ACLU Alaska

A settlement was reached in a case against the Palmer Police Department (PPD) for the unlawful arrest of Alex Caceda, a Peruvian immigrant. In exchange for dropping the lawsuit, Caceda was given a written apology, $50,000 in compensation and changes to PPD's Standard Operating Procedures dealing with immigration warrants and detainers.

"This is the best possible outcome for Alex," said Litigation Partner and ACLU of Alaska cooperating counsel Matt Singer. "Not only does Alex get real policy changes ensuring immigrants in Palmer will be safe when they interact with police, he also gets significant compensation to help him complete his long-time dream of becoming an American citizen."
