What the hell is going on in New Mexico???

On the heels of not one, but two men reporting being basically raped by medical personnel in search of illegal drugs inside their bodies, KOB4 is now reporting a woman has been subjected to a similar assault:
Laura Schaur Ives, Legal Director for the New Mexico Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, is representing the woman.
Schaur Ives said the woman doesn’t wish to be identified because she considers herself to be a victim of sexual assault. Schaur Ives said the woman crossed the border at a Port of Entry from Juarez, Mexico into El Paso.
A dog alerted to the woman, and Schaur Ives said federal agents stripped searched her at the facility, asked her to undress, to spread her genitalia and to cough. Female agents also allegedly pressed their fingers into her vagina looking for drugs.
The woman claims they didn’t discover anything during the on-site strip search, so they took her to University Medical Center of El Paso.
“First, medical staff observed her making a bowl movement and no drugs were found at that point,” Schaur Ives said. “They then took an X-ray, but it did not reveal any contraband. They then did a cavity search and they probed her vagina and her anus, they described in the medical records as bi-manual–two handed. Finally, they did a cat scan. Again, they found nothing.”
This happened in a different area than the first two reports which occurred in Deming, New Mexico in Hidalgo County. Nevertheless, it suggests there’s something very wrong going on in New Mexico, something that needs to be corrected quickly.
