Police with a history of illegal search and seizure and old

Police with a history of illegal search and seizure and old vendettas against my husband came to my house with a "failure to appear" warrant on my husband. The alleged arrant had a $250 body attachment. They entered our garage without having announced or knocked...They immediately started asking about his camaro and stating they would take it on suspicions that it had been used for drug related offense and/or purchased with drug money. We are a paycheck to paycheck type of family. We worry about bills all the time and do not sell drugs at all. The purchase of his car can easily be proven. They refused to show him the warrant and placed him in custody. I had no idea they were even here, they beat on the door and as I answered they began to scream at me to allow them to search my house. None of the 3 told me who they were not what department they were from. I have never encountered police with the exception of an occasional speeding ticket. I have now lost all faith in law enforcement. My daughter had just left and I was terrified something had happened to her and even asked if she was okay. With their hands on their guns, they began to yell about how my husband was arrested and in the vehicle, that he gave permission to search and that if I didn't sign their paper they would be right back with a search warrant, I would be arrested, my children would become wards of the state and we'd never see each other again. I was terrified. Shaking. My anxiety was through the roof. I didn't know what to do. I took the paper and they made me go outside into my front porch. While reading the paper, one officer had already entered my house and was yelling at me asking "where is your f**king purse" I had no choice but to sign. They already entered. They Were here for 4 hours. Seized his vehicle that's only in my name. They charged my husband with methamphetamine making materials. They have since been back twice trying to force me to sign yet another consent to search to which I refuse. (I now know my rights) each time they say they'll come back with a warrant but have yet to come up with one. During one of the visits, one of the officers went to my back yard and was digging through my trash. Our trash is not public property and he had no permission to do so. He is recorded. With all of my research, I believe this to have been an illegal search and seizure. We are more than willing to sell everything we own to get an attorney who can help us in this matter. Please help with any advice or where we should go from here. We love in Illinois. Never in my life have I been treated this way.

In what situations is it appropriate to request a

In what situations is it appropriate to request a re-issuance of an out-of-state subpoena or warrant?We're a CA company and just received a "US District Court" search and seizure warrant from the Northern district of Texas (signed by a US magistrate judge in Fort Worth, Texas).I was under the impression that out-of-state subpoenas and warrants are supposed to be re-issued by a California court, but I'm not sure if there are exceptions to the rule for certain courts or types of orders.If you can clear that up, I'd appreciate it.
