In a past article on this web blog titled, “Stopping the revolving door of illegal immigrants,” I wrote about how ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and State Patrols in Colorado and Wyoming teamed to crackdown on illegal immigrants.
Recently,Colorado State Patrol and ICE once again teamed up to arrest 27 suspected illegal immigrants. State Troopers stopped two vehicles, one near Grand Junction and the other near Denver, Colorado crammed with illegal immigrants. Sixteen people were in an SVU, with only four seats in the car and of course not wearing seat belts. The other 11 suspects were stopped on I-70 in Denver and one of the males arrested had a criminal history involving sexual assault.
Now the question is if these illegal immigrants have prior convictions. If so, they may face jail time up to 20 years and then be deported. Hat’s off to Colorado State Patrol’s Immigration Unit and ICE for keeping us safe.
