Motel 6 settles suit for $12 million over guest names given to ICE

Motel 6 agreed to pay $12 million to settle a lawsuit in which Washington state’s AG said the chain routinely provided guest lists to US ICE agents. The money will go to roughly 80,000 people who stayed at seven of the chain’s Washington locations from 2015 and 2017. The privacy rights were violated because Motel 6 shared their personal information without their knowledge.

So if the FBI want information, we say “yes,” but if Ice needs information we say, “no.” Does a warrant ever come into play or are we just supposed to make the rules up as we go along?

They were absolutely breaking privacy laws. If they had had a sign up or put in the contract that they would be providing that information to that group they would have been fine. it is still illegal to break a contract without the presence of a warrent, even if the other person has dont something illegal. Don't be a bunch of hypocrites guys. Follow the laws of change them through legal avenues. Or find the loopholes. Loopholes are great.

So illegals get to suck up a bunch of American resources and take jobs, plus they get 12 million for breaking the law. In what world does that make sense?

No expectation of privacy if you're illegally in a Country. Other names would be tossed out.
