And Then They Came for the Citizens...

Cameron Langford, Courthouse News, Aug. 11, 2017 - "A native-born U.S. citizen was sent to a Texas immigration prison this week after a daylong interrogation because he was delivered by a midwife and immigration agents didn’t believe his birth certificate.

Agents also seized Juan Carlos Garza’s passport before they imprisoned him at Los Fresnos immigration prison, also known as the corralón.

Garza and his wife sued the United States, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other top immigration officials on Wednesday in Federal Court.

He was released after his attorneys Lisa Brodyaga and Jamie Diez filed a habeas petition on Wednesday, but still has been ordered to appear before an immigration judge.

“Had we not filed the habeas he would probably still be detained,” Diez told Courthouse News."
