Motel 6 stops employees from reporting to ICE
Motel 6 said its employees in
Phoenix will no longer work with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents following news reports that its workers were reporting on guests they believed were in the United States illegally.
In a tweet about reports first published in the Phoenix New Times, Motel 6 said Wednesday: “This was implemented at the local level without the knowledge of senior management. When we became aware of it last week, it was discontinued.”
Employees at the Motel 6 at one of the locations — near a stretch of other budget motels, discount stores and fast food chain restaurants — refused to answer questions Thursday and referred all queries to corporate headquarters.
