Agustin Ramon, a 32-year-old dual citizen of Mexico and France (illegal), was booked into the Lincoln County jail for burglary.
Although Ramon’s wife paid a bail bond company $25,000, “officials reportedly told the bondsman that payment would likely not lead to Ramon’s release due to a detainer order from Immigration Customs and Enforcement.”
The man could be released after 48 hours, following the payment of the bond, as long as he was here legally.
The ACLU claims Bowe overstepped his authority by holding Ramon on suspected immigration violations, which would be a civil matter.
“There is no state arrest authority to keep someone who is suspected of being here unlawfully incarcerated as a result of an immigration detainer,” ACLU Legal Director Alex Rate said. “It flips innocent until proven guilty on its head.”
