It was an unfortunate day in January, when ICE officers dropped in at my house and informed me about the closure of the institution. They explained me about the investigation.  I was asked to answer a questionnaire. I was taken to detention center to complete the questioning process as they felt it was not feasible to do the process at my house. They handcuffed me and took me to the detention. The moment, they handcuffed me was a tough moment for me to handle. I was flustered, uncomfortable, with a myriad of thoughts running through my mind, unable to understand the developing events. I do not know if it is a norm in U.S, but it was definitely foreign to me. I felt that they could have asked me to answer without the procedure.
