BLACK AMERICAN ARRESTED BY ICE, TOLD HE’D BE SENT TO ‘JAMAICAN PRISON,’ BUT EVERYTHING WAS ‘GONNA BE ALRIGHT’

Quote:
A U.S. citizen who says he was detained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and threatened with deportation to Jamaica is now suing the county sheriff's office that held him in custody until ICE agents could arrive to arrest him.

Peter Sean Brown was born in Philadelphia and lived in the Florida Keys. He was not even aware of ICE's existence until his harrowing encounter with the immigration agency in April.

The 50-year-old, who is black, said that all changed when he was detained by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office in the Florida Keys so that ICE agents could pick him up and schedule him for deportation to Jamaica, a country he had only visited once on a cruise.
Quote:
"I've been wrongly accused and threatened with deportation from ICE," Brown says in a video shared online by the American Civil Liberties Union, which has launched a lawsuit on his behalf. "I am and have always been a citizen of the United States."

Even after Brown explained that he was a U.S. citizen to officers of Sheriff Rick Ramsay's office, the American says he was "mocked," with personnel affecting a Jamaican accent and saying everything was "'gonna be alright," in an apparent reference to the lyrics of a song by Jamaican musician Bob Marley.

One officer also sang the theme song to the television show The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, which contains the lyrics "West Philadelphia, born and raised" after Brown repeatedly told them that he was from Philadelphia and "had no ties to Jamaica."
Quote:
"He decides, rather than to do anything to help me, he thought that was funny and decided to mock me with that," Brown said in his video statement.

The 50-year-old's lawsuit accuses Sheriff Rick Ramsay's office of violating the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits "unreasonable searches and seizures," and carrying out false imprisonment under Florida law.

According to the ACLU, Brown had initially been reported to the Monroe County Sheriff's office for violating probation with a low-level marijuana-related offense.

Instead of processing Brown and releasing him, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office told the U.S. citizen they would be keeping him locked up to "facilitate his deportation," ACLU Immigrants' Rights Project Staff Attorney Spencer Amdur wrote in a press release on Monday.
Quote:
"ICE had faxed a request, known as a 'detainer,' asking the sheriff to lock Peter up, so it could deport him to Jamaica," Amdur wrote.

Unlike federal warrants, ICE's detainers are written requests with which local law enforcement are not obligated to comply.

In this case, however, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office chose to comply, ignoring Peter's "frantic" assertions that he was a U.S. citizen, according to Amdur.

"Peter was terrified. He knew almost nothing about Jamaica, having only visited the country once on a cruise. And yet Monroe County jail officers told him he was being sent to a Jamaican prison," the ACLU staff attorney said.
my God... in the keys. used to b so laid back. went into post office barefoot. police were just more or less helpful.

The rest is downhill from there. This will go downhill from there.

It was ICE, not the sheriff, who requested the retainer. Idiot didn't even sue the right department.

the idiots were the ones that obeyed the "request" and reported an American Citizen to ICE as a Jamaican. Without determining the facts for themselves.

If you're hit in the face you sue the one that hit you as well as the on that "requested" it.

Perhaps I missed it, but why was he arrested in the first place?

Ignoring a person's statement that they are a citizen, repeatedly, should cost these jerks their jobs, and then some. We don't need people like this under the heading of 'Serve and Protect'.
