morning news: His lawyer, Claudia Galan, confirmed he had been released, less than a day after The Dallas Morning News' reporting about his case drew national attention, according to CTV. ICE did not immediately comment. Francisco Erwin Galicia left a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention centre in Pearsall, Texas, on Tuesday. Nor did U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol, the agency that first detained Galicia. According to Galan and the Morning News, agents apprehended Galicia on suspicion that he was in the U.S. illegally even though he had a Texas state ID. Galicia was detained for three weeks by the Border Patrol, then transferred to the ICE detention centre. Galicia lives in the border city of Edinburg, Texas, and was travelling north with a group of friends when they were stopped at a Border Patrol inland checkpoint. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
