Colorado mom granted one-year extension in deportation order
BASALT, Colo. — A Basalt woman facing deportation will get to stay in the U.S. for at least another year.
In 2008, Norma Galindo Gonzales was arrested after she tried to use a friend’s legal ID.
A federal judge then ordered her to leave the country.
When she didn’t, she technically became a fugitive.”
She’s been in the U.S. for 20 years, but her home was recently raided and she was picked up by ICE agents.
According to the Aspen Times, Gonzales was granted a one year extension and was unexpectedly released in time to spend Mother’s Day with her family.
