MOTEL CHAIN IN DAMAGE CONTROL NOW
Court records obtained by the Phoenix New Times revealed ICE agents made at least 20 arrests at two Motel 6 locations in primarily Latino neighborhoods from February through August.
A front desk clerk at one of the Phoenix locations told the New Times, “We send a report every morning to ICE — all the names of everybody that comes in. Every morning at about 5 o’clock, we do the audit and we push a button and it sends it to ICE.”
While a 2015 Supreme Court Decision bars city from obtaining hotel guest lists without a warrant, it’s not a problem if employees volunteer the information.
Motel 6 confirmed the reports on Thursday with a statement that read, “This was undertaken at the local level without the knowledge of senior management. When we became aware of it, it was discontinued.”
“Moving forward, to help ensure that this does not occur again, we will be issuing a directive to every one of our more than 1,400 locations nationwide, making clear that they are prohibited from voluntarily providing daily guest lists to ICE,” Motel 6 said in a second statement issued through spokesperson Jillian Perera on Thursday.
SET ASIDE THE IMIGRATION ISSUE FOR ONE MINUET, AND TALK ABOUT PRIVACY ISSUES. I GUESS THEY WANT BIG BROTHER WATCHING EVERYONE. AND DO THEY WANT TO BE KNOWN AS ACTIVE AGENTS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT?
CAN ANYONE SAY DAMAGE CONTROL? WE WILL LEAVE THE LIGHT ON FOR YOU……..
