Dems Put Criminals First: Colorado Govenor Pardons Armed Robber

Democrats once again prove that they are weak on crime and prosecution and strong on harboring and pardoning illegal aliens. This time, they managed to do both in one shot.

Colorado's governor issued a controversial pardon Friday to stop the deportation of a convicted armed robber to Cuba but the district attorney whose office prosecuted the man questions its validity.

Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, says that with the pardon he has done everything he can to keep Rene Lima-Marin, 38, in the U.S.

He came to the U.S. as a toddler as part of the 1980 Mariel boat lift from Cuba and had legal residency until it was revoked following his 2000 criminal conviction.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 and his accomplice were charged with robbing video stores in 1998. They were convicted on multiple robbery, kidnapping and burglary counts. The accomplice is still serving his 98-year sentence.

Its time that the Trump administration start stepping in and charging this mutinous Democrat before he gets a good American citizen harmed.
