Feds Grant Stays For Sanctuary Immigrants Jeanette Vizguerra, Arturo Hernandez Garcia
Federal officials Thursday granted temporary stays for Arturo Hernandez Garcia and Jeanette Vizguerra.
Both Vizguerra and Garcia were granted stays by the Immigration Customs and Enforcement service until 2019.
"I am pleased to hear that Jeanette and Arturo have been granted temporary stays," said Sen. Bennet, in a statement. "These Coloradans have lived in our state for years, contributed to our economy and should never have been targets for deportation in the first place."
Bennet, along with Reps. Jared Polis and Ed Perlmutter, introduced private bills in Congress on their behalf.
Advocates for Vizguerra and Garcia are holding a news conference later Friday morning. This story will be updated following that availability.Content originally published by CPR on May 12, 2017.
