Posted on 09/13/2017 3:51:34 PM PDT by RightGeek
On a hot Wednesday in June, Manuel Rodriguez-Juarez, a 33-year-old landscaper, got into an argument with his live-in girlfriend.
While he waited for her to cool down, he decided to check into a $45-a-night room at a nearby Motel 6 on Maryvales southern fringe, where fast-food restaurants and gas stations catering to travelers passing through on Interstate 10 sit alongside neighborhood panaderias and marisquerias.
The front-desk clerk told him that he needed to show identification in order to reserve a room. Rodriguez-Juarez handed over the only thing he had a Mexican voter ID card.
Six hours later, he was lying on the bed, watching TV, when he heard a knock at the door.
He opened it. Three agents from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement were waiting for him.
When asked, Rodriguez-Juarez admitted that he wasnt authorized to be in the United States. Hes currently being held at the immigration detention center in Florence while his lawyer, Juan Rocha, tries to get him asylum.
While the case is pending, Rocha is trying to figure out something thats been bothering him: Did someone at Motel 6 tip off ICE?
There's certainly reason to think so.
Still, he added, Ill tell you one goddamned thing for sure Im not staying at a Motel 6 from now on.

Hey, man, “See something, say something,” right? Right?
We’ll be using Motel 6 from now on. Bravo!
ya, the pissed off girl friend/wife wouldn’t have called them....
Do they have Motel 6s in Mexico?
Motel 6 just became motel 60 in my book.
Motel 6. Vamos a dejar la luz encendida para usted.
Y notifique a ICE
Well I’m glad that some clerk is doing this but I will pass at staying in those fleabags.
Just a guess, but I’ll bet this Motel 6 & the other that was reporting the illegals was owned by a LEGAL immigrant from India. He was probably pissed off that he went through the process & these illegals didn’t.
Good for you, but I hope I’m never quite that desperate.
I remember when motel 6 was actually $6.
If I was an ICE agent, I would make a deal with motel owners: call us whenever you get somebody we should take an interest in, and we will not look closely at your staff.
You’ve never stayed at a Motel 6 level hotel?
We’ll leave the light on for ya, lol.
So Motel 6 should be punished for following the law and protecting American citizens?
Asylum? Asylum from what?
Could be an asset for Motel 6. No illegals!
Be like muslims boycotting an airline - it would be a boon for the airline. No muslims on United!
