Marcos Antonio Huete was hit by a car in Key West last month. When a deputy with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office came to the scene, Huete was unable to respond to him in English. Eventually, the officer asked him about his immigration status.
“You illegal? Are you a legal citizen or no? Speak English? You got ID? Passport, visa, or what?”
According to BuzzFeed, after being released from the hospital, Huete was then detained by Border Patrol agents and is now being held at the Krome Detention Center in Miami.
