Motel 6 Admits To Calling ICE On Immigrant Guests
When we tell you the game is fithy…THE. GAME. IS. FILTHY
THESE dime-droppin’ mickiefickies in racist azz Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s state of Arizona, boy!
According to Phoenix New Times, TWO Phoenix-area Motel 6’s located in Latino neighborhoods readily admit that when they use their uncanny immigrant-perception powers to read into the hearts of men and judge them “illegal”, they George Bush the button and inform ICE.
Peep what an cowardly anonymous employee said:
“We send a report every morning to ICE — all the names of everybody that comes in,” one front-desk clerk explained. “Every morning at about 5 o’clock, we do the audit and we push a button and it sends it to ICE.”
Ain’t. That. ‘Bout a. B!tc#?
When asked about how they receive their “tips” ICE spokespuppet Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe responded:
“I wouldn’t be able to confirm how we are getting our information. Those are investigative techniques that we wouldn’t be able to talk about,” she said.
“If hypothetically we were somewhere — if we did administratively arrest some folks — that happens all the time. We conduct targeted enforcement operations every day.”
It’s not just these two locations, apparently. Several other Motel 6 properties report the exact same occurrences:
And front desk staff at multiple Motel 6 locations in the Valley said that they regularly share guest information with local police.
“I don’t know how it works, but if you check in and you have a warrant, you’re going to get picked up,” one young woman explained.
Mmmhm. To our Hispanic and Latinx folks, probably better to just avoid any and all Motel 6’s. Especially in Arizona.
How many bags of kale chips do you think the Motel 6 employee has in their kitchen pantry? SMH.
