ACLU and Michigan Immigrant Rights Center Demand That Grand Rapids Police Department and U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement Investigate Detention of American-born Citizen and Decorated Marine:

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan and the Michigan Immigrant Rights Center (MIRC) sent l etters today to the Grand Rapids Police Department (GRPD) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) demanding an immediate investigation into the wrongful ICE detention of Jilmar Ramos-Gomez, a U.S. citizen and decorated veteran who fought in Afghanistan. On November 21, 2018, GRPD arrested Ramos-Gomez, who experiences PTSD, for a minor offense for which he pleaded guilty and should have been released December 14. GRPD called ICE, and ICE sought to deport Mr. Ramos-Gomez, even though he had the following pieces of identification on him when he was arrested:

  • U.S. Passport
  • REAL ID compliant Michigan driver’s license (which one cannot get unless lawfully present in the United States and which clearly shows he is a veteran)
  • Military ID card
  • U.S. Marine Corps tags
  • childhood Kent District Library card

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
