ACLU sues Montana sheriff for denying illegal alien bond and honoring ICE detainer

Lincoln County Sheriff Roby Bowe

From The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is currently facing a lawsuit from the ACLU and the ACLU of Montana regarding a current inmate at the Lincoln County Detention Center.

Agustin Ramon, a dual citizen of France and Mexico, was arrested on Aug. 3 for a criminal burglary charge and his bond was posted at $25,000.

The ACLU lawsuit says that when Ramon tried to pay his bond he was told that because of an ICE detainer Lincoln County could not release him. Once an immigrant posts bond the ACLU of Montana argues that the immigrant must be released according to state law.

They argue that Lincoln County Sheriff Roby Bowe must act within state law and the ACLU of Montana hopes that the class-action lawsuit will end the use of ICE detainers in Lincoln County and around the state.

The ACLU also hopes that the lawsuit bring compensation for Ramon’s false imprisonment.

The Lincoln County Detention Center confirmed that they do have Ramon in their custody and that he is being held on a $25,000 bail for a criminal burglary charge and a border patrol hold.

Lincoln County Sheriff Roby Bowe could not be reached for comment.

According to the Missoulian, the ACLU believes that Sheriff Bowe is overstepping his boundaries by holding the illegal alien on suspected immigration violations, which would be a civil matter. The bond for burglary is a criminal matter.

The illegal alien moved to Montana in April and married his wife in May. An immigration rights attorney is assisting the suspected burglar and his wife with their immigration options.

ACLU should change its acronym to AALU = Anti-American Liberals Union.


Wow! Stop the presses, sheriff does job. That’s GREAT. Has anyone else noticed that we live in a place where many answer to “strange authorities”. Maybe the term is “illegal” authorities.

We have, at least on paper, a government. If it starts to disobey the law and serve foreign interests, it is illegitimate. There should never be a situation whereby a portion of our country ignores its laws. In theory, these “officials” derive their authority from the will of the people, not from Georgi Soros and his little friends.
