Illegal Alien Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda involved in fatal hit-and-run bonded out of jail before ICE was notified
From Fox 31
DENVER — An undocumented immigrant charged with vehicular homicide after a fiery crash last Saturday, bonded out of jail a week later and managed to avoid being detained by ICE.
Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda was wanted by ICE but the Denver Sheriff’s Office released a statement Sunday that said although the department alerted ICE in response to a request for release notification it received, that did not occur until 6:33 p.m.
Zamarripa-Castaneda bonded out at 5:28 p.m.
The Sheriff’s office called the delay”unacceptable” and announced that the Sheriff has “ordered an immediate internal review to determine why established notification processes did not take place before Zamarripa-Castaneda was released.”
ICE Denver Field Officer Director Jeffrey Lynch called Zamarripa-Castaneda an “immigration fugitive.”
“Based on an immigration detainer lodged on March 5, on March 10, 2018, the Denver County Sheriff’s Office notified the Denver Office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that it would be released on bond Ivan Gerardo Zamarripa-Castaneda, 26, from Mexico, at an unspecified time. Less than two hours afterward, ICE deportation officers arrived at the sheriff’s office to have Zamarripa-Castaneda transferred to ICE custody, only to be told that he had already been released.
