Officer Removed From School After Deporting Pregnant Illegal Student

Posted in: Deportation

Nice job Officer! We have to deport them before they drop their anchors.

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) A Roswell police officer was removed from school campuses after turning a pregnant 18-year-old student over to immigration authorities.

Police Chief John Balderston defended the action by Officer Charlie Corn, a 10-year veteran who was working at Roswell High School as a student resource officer.

But he said Roswell Independent School District Superintendent Michael Gottlieb asked for Corn’s removal “because he didn’t want the officer checking on the immigration status of the students.”

Last week, the district and police department made a joint decision to remove all school resource officers, the Roswell Daily Record reported.

The incident began after senior Karina Acosta was cited Nov. 29 for a parking violation and driving without a license. Balderston said she was given several days to produce a license, and when she did not, Corn pulled her from class Dec. 5.

While trying to confirm her identity, Corn learned she was an illegal immigrant, Balderston said. Corn detained her at the school before notifying federal immigration agents, the chief said.

Balderston said Acosta, who is five months pregnant, was deported to Mexico.
