Motel 6 announces it will end voluntary ICE cooperation at all locations nationwide

Motel 6 is taking bigger steps to respond to reports that two of its Phoenix locations were sending daily guest lists to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials — resulting in at least 20 arrests from raids on their rooms this year.

G6 Hospitality, the company that owns the Motel 6 chain, confirmed Wednesday night that the guest lists were being shared but said the practice was being discontinued. Thursday evening, G6 Hospitality issued another statement to ThinkProgress explaining that it would be ensuring no other location endangers its guests in such a fashion in the future.

“Moving forward, to help ensure that this does not occur again, we will be issuing a directive to every one of our more than 1,400 locations nationwide, making clear that they are prohibited from voluntarily providing daily guest lists to ICE,” the statement read. “Additionally, to help ensure that our broader engagement with law enforcement is done in a manner that is respectful of our guests’ rights, we will be undertaking a comprehensive review of our current practices and then issue updated, company-wide guidelines.”

Now, if only the White House would issue its daily guest list to the public.

2. Am I hallucinating?

Was a US corporation just *shamed* into changing its inhuman behaviors? Oh my glob I thought shame was dead.

I might buy a lottery ticket today.

3. Is there a privacy policy provision in the sign in process?

If so, they f-ed up big time.
