Motel Six

(CNN) - A hotel chain is in the hot seat after two locations were accused of providing guest information to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

Motel Six will pay millions to settle a class action lawsuit that claimed it gave Latino guests’ information to ICE agents.

The lawsuit states that several guests at two Phoenix, Arizona locations were arrested after the hotel chain shared their personal information with ICE.

The claim was filed by a Latino civil rights group, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

Motel Six agreed to pay as must as $.7.6 million dollars to those who were interrogated, placed in immigration removal proceedings and whose personal information was given to ICE.

The district court must still approve the settlement agreement.
