Colorado Sheriff’s Office Totally Investigating Why ICE Was Alerted An Hour After Illegal Alien Released From Jail

We already know that the Denver Sheriff’s Department refused to honor an ICE detainer on an illegal alien charged with vehicular homicide, which is nothing new, as Denver is a sanctuary jurisdiction. Now we learn

(Coloradoan) The Denver Sheriff’s Department has said it is investigating why immigration authorities weren’t notified of the release of a jail inmate until about an hour after he had already left.

Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda of Mexico, 26, is charged with vehicular homicide in a hit-and-run crash that killed truck driver John Anderson, 57, on Interstate 70 on March 3. He was released from Denver’s jail at 5:28 p.m. Saturday after posting $25,000 bond but U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was not notified until 6:33 p.m., the sheriff’s department said.

“This is unacceptable and the Sheriff has ordered an immediate internal review to determine why established notification processes did not take place before Zamarripa-Castaneda was released,” the department said Sunday in a statement.

In a statement, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Denver Field Office Director Jeffrey D. Lynch said the agency was notified Saturday that Zamarripa-Castaneda would be released at an unspecified time.

He said deportation officers arrived at the jail less than two hours later to take him into custody and discovered he had already been released. The agency now considers Zamarripa-Castaneda an “immigration fugitive.”

What this actually looks likes is some butt covering by the DSD, along with playing some games since this issue had been in the news prior to this accused killer and illegal alien being released. Ivan is gone. We all know it. The chance of him showing up for his April 2 court date approaches zero.

One thing I will say yet again is that ICE should start using warrants signed off by a judge in these sanctuary jurisdictions. They should have a few judges whose job it is to simply sign warrants. Let’s see what these sanctuary jurisdictions do then.
