ICE releases US citizen wrongfully detained at border

The ICE has released a U.S.-born 18-year-old from immigration custody Tuesday after wrongfully detaining him for more than three weeks. Francisco Erwin Galicia left a detention center in Pearsall, Texas, on Tuesday, less than a day after reports about his case drew national attention. According to reports, agents apprehended Galicia on suspicion that he was in the U.S. illegally.

He was traveling near the border with his brother, who actually is an illegal alien. He has a tourist visa, indicating he is a citizen of Mexico. The name on his birth certificate is fake because his mom used a fake name. Sounds like they had good reasons to detain this dude.
