Hotel and motel staff are also told to be on the lookout for suspicious people that ask for extra towels, or have excessive alcohol in their rooms and much more.
They are told to call 1-866-DHS-2-ICE (1-866-347-2423) and report suspicious criminal activity to federal law enforcement. Laughably or sadly depending on how you feel about being spied on by hospitality workers, DHS claims that highly trained DHS specialists will take their reports.
Unfortunately, asking for extra towels or having lots of alcohol in your room is only the tip of the iceberg.
Hotel & motel staff will contact police for almost anything
Welcome to police state America 2018, where hotel and motel staff will notify law enforcement for almost anything.
According to DHS's Blue Campaign, if you don't want to be considered a suspicious person by hotel and motel staff, you should never wear provocative clothing. You should never use their bar or restaurant to meet a date. You should never wear musk, cologne or perfume. You should never pay for your food or drinks with cash or a pre-paid credit card. You should never ask about porno movies or have pornography in your room. You should never use side entrances or exits. And you should never back into a parking spot.
The list of things hotel and motel staff find suspicious should anger every (union) convention goer, business traveler and vacationer.
Below, is a list of fifteen unbelievable things that will get you reported to law enforcement.
