Carlos Rios, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Mexico, is suing Immigration and Customs Enforcement for holding him in a detention center even after he showed a U.S. passport and insisted he was American. Rios, who identified as a native of Mexicali, has been in the U.S. since the 1980s and became a citizen in 2000. According to the lawsuit, Rios was pulled over on his motorcycle in November 2019 on suspicion of driving under the influence. The next day, two ICE officers who didn’t identify themselves allegedly seized him and brought him to the Northwest immigration jail in Tacoma, Washington. A week after Rios was detained, ICE officials took his biometric information and realized he was a U.S. citizen. The Associated Press.
