BURLINGTON, Vt. — A dashboard video shows a Vermont State Police trooper asked superiors if he was following policy when he questioned the immigration status of two immigrant farmworkers who were later turned over to the Border Patrol.

The workers were arrested Sept 13 after the driver of the car they were riding in was stopped for speeding.
