ICE/CBP have detained a US citizen for three weeks. Have lied about his birthplace

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/immigration/2019/07/22/dallas-born-citizen-picked-border-patrol-detained-three-weeks

Galan said she met with CBP officers last week and presented them with Galicia’s birth certificate and some other documents but was unsuccessful in getting him released. She plans on presenting the same documents to ICE officers later this week.

“I presented then with his original birth certificate and other documents and they ignored them. So now I’ve faxed over all the documents to the ICE agent handling the case,” Galan said. “He’s going on a full month of being wrongfully detained. He’s a U.S. citizen and he needs to be released now.”

The Dallas Morning News reviewed a copy of the birth certificate and it lists Galicia as having been born at Parkland Memorial Hospital on December 24, 2000. Other documents include a congratulatory certificate his mother was given by hospital staff when he was born, a high school ID, and a health insurance card.

...

The ICE detainee locator system shows Francisco is being held at the South Texas Detention Facility in Pearsall and lists him as being born in Mexico.

1. trump will expand this type of criminalizing

Of minorities to use to hurt them with, and to all minorities who are citizens. This will escalate.

2. It's getting closer to each of us and anyone who thinks they're "protected" is probably wrong.

4. I'm sure ICE people have heard thru the grapevine...

...that there won’t be any repercussions from detaining actual citizens — as long as they’re not white.

5. It makes you wonder if they ever deport actual criminals?

Foreign mobsters of any origin including the Russian Mob.

10. Amazing how strikingly similar this is to the German bureaucracy

that grew up around the Nazi roundups of Jews back in the 30s and 40s.
