Motel 6 apparently colluding with the American Gestapo.

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.


A Phoenix New Times review of court records found that between February and August, ICE agents made at least 20 arrests at Motel 6s, showing up roughly every two weeks.
The company is apparently claiming this was a local management policy at a few locations and has since been discontinued, but their mealy-mouthed response (see the BJ comments) isn't exactly confidence-inspiring.
