U.S.-Born Citizen Held for Deportation at ICE’s Request

A new lawsuit filed this week in federal court details the case of a Philadelphia-born U.S. citizen who was detained for weeks in Florida at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, The Washington Post reports. The ACLU filed the suit on behalf of Peter Sean Brown, who was told he would be deported to Jamaica, a country that the lawsuit states “he has never lived and knows no one.” Brown was detained in Monroe County, which this year entered a new arrangement with ICE under a “Basic Ordering Agreement.” His ICE detainer form said he was to be deported because of “biometric information.”
