US-born high school student detained for weeks by CBP


A Texas-born high school student who was detained by immigration officials for more than three weeks told CNN's Nick Valencia he was treated less than human at a US Customs and Border Protection facility.
Francisco Galicia was born in Texas, and he is an American citizen. As a child, he moved to Mexico with his family and later returned to the US as a teenager. He says he was carrying his state ID, a Social Security card and a wallet-sized birth certificate.
He also had a Mexican tourist visa with him that inaccurately listed his country of birth as Mexico, setting up a conflicting nationality claim, his attorney, Claudia Galan, said.

  1. This is text book racism. Definitely Trump’s America.

  2. smh A dayum shame. They targeted him because of his ethnicity and that is discrimination. I’m glad he’s filing a federal lawsuit.

    Happens to often, more people need to hold these devils accountable and prosecute them. In addition to suing, prosecute them.

  4. Remember to register for 2020 elections itsyour future.

    Deport Melania Trump. She obtained a Visa that no other individual can obtain in order to stay in the US.

    I hope the activist lawyers are all over this. 🤑

  7. There is excuse for it to take 23 days for this young man ICE screwed up big time on his case alone .

    • @George Cass Like i said, do you know how long it takes to validate a birth certificate. Not only that, there is overcrowding due to dumbass Dems promising illegal aliens free health care and open borders. This is not the fault of the gov’t. This is his mother’s fault, plain and simple.

    • @Keith Weiman right… the next time a blonde fair boy skinned born in US ( mexico bad DOCS) gets put in there…. let us know

    • @MrDavfit Drumpf sued the US Government this weak to stop his taxes from being released.
      Conald has his scumbag liars lined up to cover the crimes of the treasonous POS.
      GoFundMe for good lawyers for this American Citizen.

    • @George Cass Something similar happened to me as well. As a naturalized US citizen with an accent (my English is otherwise very good) and an expired US passport that I didn’t have with me, I naively assumed that I could just reenter the country with my native passport and my US driver’s license as ID’s; they’ll find me in the system, I thought. It didn’t fly.
      It didn’t occur to me the get the media involved, and being white, that would have probably been massage to a wooden leg. I love how the petty reporter tricked the kid into vouching for the good moral character of every single person in those facilities.

      Go to almost any black man in America and ask them whether they have been illegally stopped or arrested and then you will see that those who are posturing this are full of it. I feel sorry for this young man but ask American black young men how many times they are stopped while driving black and falsely arrested with no question of citizenship and see what you get.

    Remember what George Carlin said? “Just when you need your rights the most, they take it away.”

    Another confirmed incident 1943 Japanese Americans.

    • @Jester Avrgjoe you lost me at “a” entertainer. 😌 work on your debating tactics a wee bit more. Oh and Wikipedia isn’t a source. May God bring you brains 💪

      Funny thing is even comic books are political. The first ever Captain America comic was him punching Hitler as a middle finger to dictatorships. So if you wanna say that entertainers and media can’t be political. Do some actual research.

      @Jester Avrgjoe All Trump supporters are a liability to my country….what to do what to do

    • @Rapist Trump ODA 595 please start a war with us scared

  9. ICE is not nice & it looks like neither is INS or DHS!

  10. When a nation builds walls to keep people out, remember, those walls can also keep people in.

      @nelson 100 exactly…present your papers and show your ID to travel to see family in other states.

    • That’s why we have gates.

    • LOL there is no wall. It’s a little fence. No concrete and not built “so fast your heads will spin”.
      Drumpftards are his easy marks, suckered by the conman.

      That’s what a nation does to keep their sovereignty. you are not a nation unless you can control your boarders. What is the suggestion that would be better?

    • Wow, did you stay up all night thinking of that? I suppose you leave your doors and windows open while you’re away, inviting all and any body to come on in.

    Trumps America smh.. we need him voted out in the upcoming elections guys. An American born and raised citizen no less. This is profile racism and discrimination.

    • @Janet Masiello using george soros as a boogeyman ain’t gonna help

    • Get lost! Think about the situation. Kid has a tourist visa? Why if he is American ? Also why would he allow a tourist visa to have his home labeled Mexico ? None of this story makes any sense.

    • @HaleStorm Gaming Every one is less intelligent due to what you wrote.

    We must protest like Puerto Rico this 👹 needs to be stopped

  16. Pelosi, McConnell, and Barr are responsible for allowing this disgusting administration continue taking us down the road to a dictatorship.

  17. He is calling the families of the prisoners to let them know THEY ARE ALIVE…. how can we be proud?

  18. But lecturing Sweden about imprisonment.
