AUSTIN, Texas - Civil rights advocates are accusing Texas DPS of racial profiling.

ACLU officials said they are concerned about DPS giving ICE the names of cited drivers suspected of being illegal immigrants.

The San Antonio Express-News said it's happened hundreds of times over the past two years.

Supporters of the practice say it helps ICE find undocumented immigrants who may be a threat to public safety.
