Rene Lima-Marin’s circuitous saga has now become mind-boggling. He’s the Cuban-born, U.S.-raised man who served 10 years in a Colorado prison for armed robbery; was paroled by mistake; straightened out his life while free; was sent back to prison anyway when the mistake was discovered, and, just earlier this week, was granted freedom again, this time by a judge who said keeping him in prison any longer would be unjust.
Today, as his release was imminent, U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement put a hold on him. It turns out, as CBSDenver Channel 4-TV reports:
He is on the Department of Corrections’ list of illegal immigrants that is annually turned over to the federal government.
