Completely senseless, unnecessary, and inhumane. Sickening.

Why didn't Niec seek the "citizenship route?"

I agree this entire procedure looks unnecessary, but had he sought to be a legal citizen of the United States, this would not be an issue at all.

This all sounds about right.

His parents immigrated from Poland when he was 3. He had zero say in the matter. He's grown up as an American. Doesn't speak Polish, has no connections in Poland, his entire life is here in the US. He became a doctor and is doing great things in the community. That's the American dream.

Now, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers are after him? That sums up everything about how the federal government prioritizes issues and misappropriates personnel and funds. Can anyone think of a better use of manpower and resources?

As someone on Mlive said...ICE has gone full Gestapo.

He has a permanent green card, allowing him to live and work in the United States. Why would he seek citizenship if it doesn't interest him? Have any of you tried to obtain citizenship in the US? Calling it a "hassle" would be putting it mildly.

Should he get a pass just because he is a MD ?

Green card holders agree to follow American laws.

Explain what law he was breaking and why he's being detained.
