    U.S. Citizens Say They Were Detained By Border Patrol Agent For ‘Speaking Spanish’

    Two U.S. citizens said they were detained last week by a Border Patrol agent in Montana after he overheard them speaking Spanish to each other in a convenience store.

    Ana Suda and Mimi Hernandez said they’d popped into the store in Havre, a small town near the border with Canada, early Wednesday morning when they were approached by a uniformed Border Patrol agent, KRTV reported.

    The two women, who are Mexican American, had been chatting in Spanish while waiting in line to pay for eggs and milk when ― to their incredulity ― the agent asked them for their IDs.

    Suda told MTN News that even after seeing their IDs, the agent did not let them leave the parking lot for about 35 minutes.

    Wow, a whole 35 minutes. Good thing they didn't go through an airport, that would have been 45 minutes standing in line.

    That’s not the point, dipshit. Two US citizens were racially profiled and detained for speaking Spanish after providing proof of citizenship. And this happened in the United States at a store in Montana.

    Do you rinse after licking boots, or do you enjoy the taste?

    So...it is totally acceptable to detain American citizens going about their business because they speak Spanish. Just wanted to confirm the new "American" standards. Gotcha! :113:
