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.
