Motel 6 To Pay $7.6 Million For Giving Guest Lists To ICE


Motel 6 will pay up to $7.6 million to Hispanic guests to settle a proposed class-action lawsuit claiming that it violated their privacy by regularly providing guest lists to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

Terms of the preliminary settlement with eight Hispanic plaintiffs – seven from Arizona and one from Washington state – were disclosed in a Nov. 2 filing with the federal court in Phoenix.

The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) filed the lawsuit after the Phoenix New Times said ICE agents had arrested 20 people over six months at Motel 6s in Arizona, using guest lists to target people by national origin.

  1. Motel 6 should have fought it, they didn’t do anything illegal by working with American law enforcement agencies, and would have won had the case gone up to the supreme court. Probably some liberal corporate politics.
