“An 18-year-old Dallas-born U.S. citizen has been in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement for more than three weeks, his attorney says.

Now his family fears he may be deported.

Francisco Erwin Galicia was detained at a CBP checkpoint in Falfurrias on June 27, said Claudia Galan, his attorney.

Galicia was traveling with his 17-year-old brother Marlon Galicia and a group of friends from Edinburg where they live to Ranger College in North Texas for a soccer scouting event when they came upon a CBP checkpoint, said Sanjuana Galicia, his mother.”

  1. Are ICE and Border Partrol agencies out of control? Leave a comment below!

  2. No U.S citizen should be held in our country for immigration purposes not one second is okay ever!! Everything is a phonecall away or a click away

  3. "Why should I care? I'm white, this will never happen to me!"


  5. Im from México and what she did is illegal in Mexico at a federal level and she could go to jail. She claimed his son was born in Mexico so she could use the social services like universal healthcare, education and daycare for free in Mexico. So basically what she did is identity fraud in Mexico and can go to jail and since he is 18 and if he is aware of this now and won't fix it he will also face federal charges.

  6. They should sue border patrol up the wazoo for this. If they do it'll get them to think twice about their overzealous actions.

  7. It's not a mistake. This is a deliberate act to get rid of brown and black people in the USA, regardless of citizenship. Trump wants to apply Birtherism to ALL people of color and it started with Barak Obama.

  8. a comment not related to this video. a prediction 4 you trump is about to sign. 9-11 bill. he will soon take credit 4 jon stewart's work & say he passed the bill &nobody else could do it

  9. ICE is gonna start deporting Border Patrol Agents cuz some of them look latino next

  10. Operation wetback. Look it up. This country has never given a shit about being legal, they care about being brown. Let's change that.

  11. So an illegal lies and causes confusion for her kid because of her LIES and you are blaming ICE…Wow idiot is to kind a word for these morons.

  12. Let me get this straight, his mother claimed he was born in Mexico, therefore he ends up getting detained as they were going by what she said, and now there's outrage? The border patrol acted justly

  13. This is disgusting, he should sue border patrol.

  14. Breaking news: People get stopped by law enforcement officers. Oh the horror.

  15. Just like Born in East LA.. (film) SMH..

  16. This is nothing new, I have herd of Puerto Rican's being detained before, mainly because they would not acknowledge that is part of the U.S.

  17. Time to kill these criminal scum pig border patrol cunts for their crimes against humanity.

  18. WTF?!? Mexicans have been in Texas longer than white people!

  19. Border patrol is out of control. who do they think they are?!!!!

  20. Went swimming at the Rio Grande, next thing I know I'm surrounded by poarder portal.

  21. White nazis only understsnd one thing ! Guns and bombs ! Genocide levels !

  22. Sue them or buy sniper guns and do the needful !

  23. I see Stephen Miller's grimy hands all over this.

  24. They already made a movie about this starring Cheech

  25. Helps not to have both an American and a Mexican birth certificate. Also helps not to be smuggling your illegal alien brither

  26. we need to start a new party no Democrats no Republicans no Independence just a new party that stronger than all that actually speaks for the people

  27. we have lost our rights

    I don't care if your white ,black, yellow or us citizen you are losing your rights
    what I see is a Nazi state of control
    no order no sense
    just a whole nation worried about being arrested or deported
    because ones id or different id is suddenly in question
    us or foreign I think we are all seeing a repeat of time
    my thought is the Nazi won and real freedom is going down a very shitty toilet
    o human rights ……………did I say Nazi……

  28. The two states that have the highest revenue in the country are also the two states that also have the highest amounts immigrants, California and New York. Therefore the greater amount of productive immigrants far, far exceeds the stereotyped philosophy from the right.

  29. To many ppl, including those in power don't understand how citizenship, residencies, visas, permits, passports & IDs work so default to skin & language. That's the problem.

  30. i dont think you guys understand. there are a large number of people here in the usa that hate all immigrants unless they are like English. anyone else they just oppose with their entire being. there is ALOT of real hate in the usa.

  31. TYT is an 'isolated incident'.

  32. I have had a valid up to date Passport rejected a couple of times by ppl who either a)don't know passports are two valid forms of government ID or b)they literally had no clue what a passport was. I have a foreign birth certificate, a US passport, i look Hispanic (my family is blk from NC, father US military, hence the foreign birth), & i speak Spanish amongst other languages. Since i know that some ppl have no clue how passports, citizenship or IDs work or maybe they were just racists, i am perturbed. Will i get detained if i cross paths with a moron or a racist???

  33. He was an anchor baby🙄
