Mistake? Or Routine Searches? ICE Targets Wrong Family In Oklahoma Raid

Is this what we've come to? A Gestapo ICE? On Saturday at around 6:00am ICE agents raided the Estrada's home in Moore, Oklahoma. Carlos Estrada Barrintos was quickly handcuffed, then agents proceded to handcuff Estrada's wife, their 15 year old daughter, and 18 year old son.

Minutes after they realized they realized they were in the incorrect home, but kept Carlos in handcuffs for another 40 minutes. 

Estrada told Accion Oklahoma reporters "My record reflects nothing to be shameful for, they [ICE] is who shames me"

This is an English report from another local station KTQV9

ICE agents were contacted by KTQV9 and had the following to say. 

On Jan. 8 at about 6 a.m., officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and District 21 Task Force in Oklahoma executed a search warrant issued by a District Court judge at a Moore, Okla., residence.

Shortly after entering the residence, ICE officers interviewed the alleged target and noted a discrepancy between the residence owner's social security number and that of the target of the investigation.

Officers conducted an on-site electronic fingerprint comparison which confirmed that the residence owner was not the target of the investigation, even though they both have the same name.

Officers apologized and departed the residence. ICE immediately began investigating this incident, which is ongoing. The investigation into the original target is also ongoing.
