In the early morning hours of Mother’s Day 2005, Denver Police Detective Donny Young was assassinated in cold blood by an illegal alien. Young was working off duty in uniform with Detective John Bishop at the Solano Ocampo Hall to earn extra income to support his wife and two young daughters. Illegal alien Raul Gomez-Garcia approached and shot both officers in the back. ...

Killer Gomez-Garcia (aka Garcia-Gomez) fled to Mexico after the murder, where he was arrested and returned to Denver. But the extradition was predicated on an agreement between the Denver District Attorney and Mexico that he would not file charges carrying a life sentence or the death penalty - apparently Mexico is very sensitive to the needs of their criminal class. Gomez-Garcia, with the number “13” etched into the back of his head, was sentenced to 80 years. (“M” is the 13th letter of the alphabet and often represents the Surenos gang and typically designates “Murder” or “Mexican”.)...

Just hours after the heinous assassination, illegal alien Gomez-Garcia reported for a full shift at the Cherry Cricket restaurant where he worked. In order to get the job, he had provided a fraudulent Social Security card which had been used in three states by three other illegals...

The restaurant where Gomez-Garcia worked was owned by none other than Denver’s Mayor John Hickenlooper. Ironically, in December of 2005 Hickenlooper was the keynote speaker at a fundraiser burrito breakfast for El Centro Humanitario para los Trabajadores - Denver’s illegal alien hiring hall...

The vast majority of the so-called “undocumented” illegal aliens in fact have complete sets of documentation - albeit fraudulent documentation. For example, in 2006, Vail resident Jeremy Lepore received a letter from the IRS asking for $4,600 in back taxes for jobs he never held. He was stunned to learn that two illegal aliens had used his Social Security Number to obtain the jobs.

Avon police Detective Paul Arnold said, “I’d say probably about three quarters of the illegals I’ve dealt with here get false documents. With the number of illegals here in the valley, I’d say there are thousands of them.”...

Special Agent Lon Garner, head of the Denver office of the U.S. Secret Service, the primary federal agency dealing with counterfeit documents, observed, “From that one piece of identification you can devastate a person’s life. They open up bank accounts. We’ve seen them purchase homes.”...

The total cost of illegal immigration to Colorado for Medicaid, K-12, incarceration, and education was found to be over $1 billion per year in 2006. That stunning amount includes over $64 million of State General funds spent on Medicaid for illegals. Colorado workers also suffer an economic loss of $2 billion caused by the downward drag of illegal labor on wages paid by Colorado employers...
