U.S. citizen detained three weeks by ICE

Rony Chavez Aguilar, a naturalized U.S. citizen, was held in ICE custody for nearly three weeks without being able to see a judge, and without knowing why he was being detained.  His lawsuit states

ICE Chicago did not obtain a judicial warrant to arrest Plaintiff; has not provided a sworn, particularized statement of probable cause; has not promptly brought him before a detached and neutral judicial officer for a probable cause hearing; or has not brought him before a judge to understand the charges against him and receive important advisals regarding his due process rights, amongst other procedural protections.

It’s not a new problem since Trump’s inauguration, but I’m guessing we aren’t going to hear the President reading the Riot Act to the immigration cops any time soon.
