CBP is detaining *American citizens.*
How would you feel trapped in a border camp, where guards wear face masks because the human odor is so strong?
When we allow the rights of some to be violated, the rights of all are not far behind. https://t.co/U4NFQtv8F3

But Ocasio-Cortez and others pushed the story without the background.
Meet Francisco Erwin Galicia, 18, allegedly born in Dallas, who you’ll be hearing a lot about today as he’s been in detention for the past three weeks after he and his Mexico-born brother were picked up at a checkpoint in south Texas.
From the Dallas Morning News:
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.
