Migrant worker going 80 MPH in 55 MPH zone handed over to Border Patrol - St. Albans Messenger

A Franklin County migrant worker carrying a Mexican passport was stopped for speeding in Chittenden County and delivered by sheriffs to the U.S. Border Patrol. He's being held in federal detention in NH, much to the dismay of migrant advocates. 

"In a statement released early Monday morning, advocacy group Migrant Justice alleged a CCSD deputy reported Luis Ulloa, a 21-year-old farmworker living in Franklin County, to U.S. Border Patrol during a Nov. 22 traffic stop on Interstate 89 near South Burlington.

According to Migrant Justice, responding Border Patrol agents arrested Ulloa, who is now being held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) without bond in the Strafford County House of Corrections in Dover, N.H.

Migrant Justice alleged the actions of CCSD deputy Jeffry Turner, who conducted the traffic stop and, upon finding Ulloa with a Mexican passport, contacted Border Patrol, violated the department’s fair and impartial policing policy.

In a statement Monday afternoon, Chittenden County Sheriff Kevin McLaughlin defended Turner, saying, as of a preliminary investigation, “it is my belief that Deputy Sheriff Turner’s conduct with regard to the November 22, 2019 traffic stop, and his decision to involve federal authorities, is consistent with the provisions of that policy.”"

    And today the " Migrant Justice " group was supposed to protest at the Sherriffs department.
    Must be because our laws don’t apply to illegal aliens.
    Next time you go to Mexico break any law you choose. They won’t mind, it’s a reciprocal agreement. ( just tell them you’re a liberal )
