Colorado governor pardons felon to stave off deportation

May 21, 2017

2017-05-20_23-32-23DENVER — Colorado’s governor on Friday pardoned a Cuban immigrant for an armed robbery he committed 19 years ago in an effort stave off the man’s deportation after immigration authorities detained him following a judge’s ruling that he should no longer be imprisoned.

The pardon from Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, was the latest twist in the saga of Rene Lima-Marin, 38. He came to the U.S. as a toddler as part of the 1980 Mariel boat lift from Cuba and had legal residency until it was revoked following his 2000 criminal conviction. Lima-Marin was sentenced to 98 years in prison for the robbery. But he was mistakenly paroled from Colorado state prison in 2008.

Lima-Marin married, had a child and got a steady job installing glass before state authorities realized their mistake in 2014 and sent him back for the remainder of his 98-year prison sentence.

    They all need a micro-chip implant right between the eyes!

    I Think the blow job came before the pardon

  • roboteq says:

    Just how bad is our criminal system that we “mistakenly” pardon someone? I am not comfortable paying for a criminal’s incarceration for the duration of their life. There needs to be a way that incarcerated criminals are made to be responsible for their care while incarcerated, taking the burden of criminals off of the taxpayer. However, if we are going to continue such sentences, how in the world does a sentence “mistakenly” get pardoned? Is there no process and paperwork involved?

    It’s true, this pathetic bunch of people that go by Dems., are really a low IQ bunch of idiots! Nancy Waters come to mind! 🙂

      Back in 1975 I lived in Fla. I used to venture over to Miami some. The funniest bumper sticker I saw there was, “will the last American leaving Miami, please bring the flag”

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        HA, I remember those days well, I remember people talking about that very thing, Please bring the Flag!! I wonder if our flag is even flown there now!!

        1. gvette says:

          I don’t know, Rodney. I lived there a year, and haven’t been back. I lived in Ft. Meyers. I had a friend from up where I came from that lived in Miami, which was the reason I’d go there. I just remember, that as I was in the USA still, it sure looked like Cuba to me!

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            I don’t think we’ve missed anything! One of my best friend’s son was murdered in Miami almost 2 years ago! His wife was from there and they had a baby 4 months old and her parents hadn’t got to see it at the time! So they baby sit for them one night while they were there so they could got out and eat and have a good time, they told them where to go and thought it would be a safe place, but NO, on the way out of the going to the car, a bunch of thugs pulled up, robbed them and pushed them around some and then one of the cuban thugs put a pistol under his chin and blew the top of his head off! It’s really another Chicago, just kept quiet!

          2. gvette says:

            I’m sorry to hear that, Rodney. That’s a shame! I can only imagine it would only get worse. I guess there’s two Miamis. The beach, then the the rest.I say that, because as I drove away from the beach, things changed quickly.

          3. Rodney Steward says:

            The sad thing my friend went down there after it took place to talk with the law and anyone that could help him find the peole, but was told there was basically nothing that could be done, it took place all the time, I was pretty shocked!

          4. mrpoohead says:

            America – the toilet of the modern world. A homicide rate five to ten times W Europe et al and even of some Middle East countries. Toilet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          5. Rodney Steward says:

            One thing about this old toilet of the world, every time a country needs help, who do they call on, the Good Old US of A! I wouldn’t trade it for the world, but I would a lot of the people!

          6. mrpoohead says:

            When; Korea, Iran and Afghanistan none of our business, Vietnam, we picked the wrong side.

            “Help?” We take in the least refugees per capita, we give the least per capita. Want to try again after you check your facts.

            You’re still the fall guy!

          7. Rodney Steward says:

            Why do you say “WE”, you keep saying you’re from some where else, ANOTHER LIE! We kicked Korea’s a$$, to he$$ with Iran and Afgan, and yes we had no business in Nam, I lost family in that, and to hell with those MADE UP REFUGEES that has almost destroyed all of Europe BOY, you do your REAL home work! And we give more than anyone else in the world you little snowflake, or is it fruit loop! I know the facts boy, I hope you become ISIS food, or a muslim tater-tot! 🙂

          8. mrpoohead says:

            Like Obama I have a US passport by birth.

            Europe has comparatively no problems compared to the US. Better social disparity, social mobility, healthcare and education systems, plus a homicide rate a fifth to a tenth of ours. Please reference Europe’s issues – you got squat!

            Korea fail!, Iraq fail! Ongoing. Afghanistan fail! Ongoing and not resolvable. They haven’t lost a war since the Mongols. Big fat fail – thankfully we turned up late for WWI & WWII and picked the right side.

            Per capita we are the worst in-taker of refugees and also in foreign aid provided. If you dispute this then I suggest you provide a reference – you got squat!

          9. Rodney Steward says:

            WE DO NOT WANT ANY REFUGEES, just more we’ll have to take care ourselves when they start their Jihad, then throw in your kind, gonna be fun!

          10. mrpoohead says:

            Per capita we take the least, compared to W Europe et al. Best take it up with the UN, we have agreed to support like our peers – they are just more magnanimous. No jihad anywhere, few idiots that are being fought by other Muslims. Duh!

          11. Rodney Steward says:

            The UN/EU is nothing to us and why Trump is considering getting out of what we keep up anyway! We pay more than Germany, France and China combined! Or so called peers are NOT doing their part! Did you watch any of the BS taking place in Venezuela today, WHAT A MESS, got all that oil, and BANKRUPTED as he$$ !! They’re on the verge of civil war right now!! Get off the video games and watch some news grasshopper!

          12. mrpoohead says:

            Well if the oil price goes up everyone in Venezuela will be happy again. What’s the difference between that and Ferguson?

            Think you mean NATO – no some don’t pay 2% which was the agreed amount. We need to pay more as our forces are significantly less efficient of course. Of course we spend more than Germany and France – their populations are tiny in comparison – duh! China doesn’t need to spend as much – minimum wage is probably $1/per day, cheaper to make stuff. Maths not your forte?

            UN is important to all – place to air grievances duh!

          13. Rodney Steward says:

            NO, IT is the UN that we keep up and pay so much more than most! Germany said they refused to pay their share, so I guess they’re out! Like I said, this is useless BS, and I agree with Trump of getting out, everyone wants us to do everything and not pay their share! CAN IT!!!!

          14. mrpoohead says:

            Fail! We pay more because we are bigger with greater GDP and population – actually per capita Japan, Germany, France and the UK pay more. Germany does pay – they haven’t caught up with NATO funding yet, this is because they took on East Germany too, so infrastructure building. You are a sad little man. No ones leaving the UN – stupid!

          15. Rodney Steward says:

            I wouldn’t call anyone stupid from this UNINFORMED comment, but most all of your comments have been WRONG, just like your England BS!!

          16. mrpoohead says:

            As I was reading the Guardian at the time my info was correct. They hadn’t confirmed anything at that moment – you obviously had all the facts as you are psychic or is it psychotic?

          17. Rodney Steward says:

            Duuuhhhh, what’s this Jihad in England BOY, see how uneducated you are BOY, is mommy holding you tight BOY, you’re one pathetic POS, and I hope you pay like the chicken SH you are! TERRORIST ATTACK IN ENGLAND! And you say that the USA is the WORLD’s leading crime and death rate country! Like SOOOO many other things about you, just ONE BIG UNINFORMED LIAR!!!!

          18. mrpoohead says:

            Well it is unknown what did it so far – might be terrorist might not be. Might be a gas explosion.

            Suggest you look up homicide rate per country – we are worse than all of W Europe et al. We remain the toilet!

          19. Rodney Steward says:

            TERRORISM I-D-I-O-T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          20. mrpoohead says:

            Now it is, initially unknown. One fruit-bat, well they exist everywhere – he’ll probably turn out to have mental health issues, was born John Smith and affiliated to nobody. What’s your point?

            We averaged a mass shooting every day in 2015 – not really same ball park is it? UK one in ten years, Australia one in twenty, Switzerland two in the lifetime of the gun.

          21. Rodney Steward says:

            What is a mass shooting! The only places we have that are trigger happy, is Chicago, YO X-Presidents claimed home town! Do you know where America is ranked WORLD WIDE in MURDER RATES! Give me your number Mr know it all!

          22. mrpoohead says:

            Don’t care were we sit and doubt every homicide is in Chicago – I used to live in LA. I do know that our homicide rate is five to ten times that of W Europe, Canada, NZ, Australia, Japan and a good bit of the Middle East.

            Numero uno toilette – USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          23. Rodney Steward says:

            We’re RANKED #122 in the world in gun violence! If you lived in LA. it’s like Chicago and NYC, it’s as close to he$$ as you can get!!

          24. mrpoohead says:

            Don’t think that’s anything to crow about – we aspire to mediocre? Did you see the countries above us – all of W Europe et al and a good many Middle Eastern countries and a good many toilets. Whoop, whoop!

          25. Rodney Steward says:

            Can tell you didn’t see the list, you way wrong boy, most of it is the middle east! 122 out of 150 is nothing to crow about, Whoopie, you got a problem, but most socialist dems do!

          26. mrpoohead says:

            Bahrain, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Saudia Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Israel, Jordan, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and Iran – think you’ll find they are all in Middle East and above US, well last one on par to be fair. Swivel buttercup! USA toilet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          27. Rodney Steward says:

            You’re one sick puppy, but do you know what most of these countries have in common, NONE will accept any refugees at all !! DUHHH BOY! Only 4 of these countries take refugees, and very few at that! And there was one he$$ of a killing by ISIS not long ago in Egypt! A few more ice cream seasons grasshopper, you MIGHT get a little more informed on what’s going on in the world besides what happened under the brown clown! You act just like his son, you never know, you may have been nursed by Big Mike!! ;-o

          28. mrpoohead says:

            Dodgy facts as per usual – and a number have significantly more than we do. Jordan’s population has grown by 25% because of Syrian issue, Egypt and Libya have a lot more than we do – three to four times.

            Simple lesson in fact finding – leave the Alt-right alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They know squat! Duh!

          29. Rodney Steward says:

            I’ll go along with some of this, you mentioned 3 of the 4 countries I was talking about! They should take in their own kind, they’re not our kind at all! And I’ll tell you a secret, the refugees are not really coming in here, they are being held up by the countries they’re trying to fly out of! But if you threaten to cut off their funding, they will listen!! Love it!! 🙂

          30. mrpoohead says:

            Turkey has two million refugees, Lebanon one million and Jordan has grown by 25%. the ideal is they go home. Always is. Also proves the point that Europe hasn’t been taken over by Muslims, they actually only have a couple of hundred thousand among 700 million. You’d be struggling to find one. And the ones I know have all inter-married.

            Where was our aide whenever there has been a major disaster in our country .

          32. Rodney Steward says:

            Always there wasn’t it my friend!

          33. Retired says:

            Keeping things quiet is the norm in tourist areas

          34. Rodney Steward says:

            Exactly my friend, and old Jeb Bush done a great job of hiding all the crime that really exist in that state!
