"An undocumented immigrant detained by immigration authorities after
being arrested in a domestic-violence incident — in which she was the
victim — is speaking out because she doesn't want others to go through
the same ordeal. Virginia Mancinas Urtusuastegui, 35, of Glenwood
Springs, said being in custody for two weeks under a deportation order,
even though her misdemeanor charge of false reporting was dropped for
lack of evidence, makes her reluctant to call police for help. “If
I have another problem like this one, I would never call the police,”
Mancinas said. “A lot of people who know what happened to me won't call
the police. They don't want to go to jail. They would rather suffer
through what they are facing.” Her case illustrates a policy
battle that erupted locally this week between the American Civil
Liberties Union of Colorado and Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario." - Heather McGregor, Glenwood Springs Post Independent, May 25, 2012.
