Migrant allegedly in US illegally in Arapahoe County jail on attempted murder charge
Update: On Friday, ICE Denver issued the following correction to its original statement: Due to new information brought to light, we have made a minor correction to our news release issued Nov. 27. We have removed any mention of a notification being made to ICE. Although ICE may have been notified that Garces was scheduled for release, Arapahoe County, along with every jail in the state, may not hold onto a criminal alien to ensure the inmate is delivered in a controlled manner to honor a detainer. A notification that an alien is about to be released to the lobby is not a functional way to ensure transfer of custody. Arapahoe County did follow state law.
