Magistrate Judge D. Thomas Ferraro, 15 lawyers
Observers—1 Sam and a group of about 15 from the U of A with their professor.
47 migrants including 5 women, all from Mexico except 3 from Guatemala and one from El Salvador.
THERE WERE NO 1325 ONLY IN THIS GROUP—JUST PLEA BARGAIN CHARGES (Today, Tuesday, there are 35 with only 1325 and 23 with two charges).
Back to Monday; 14 people were picked up near Nogales, 11 near Naco, 7 each near Lukeville and Sasabe, 5 near Douglas, 1 each near Sierra Vista and Hereford and 1 at a port of entry.
People were brought in without shackles, 7 at a time. No charges were dismissed.
Francisco Arias Luna 27387M, lawyer Vargas, spoke at length in English about being here since high school(?), trying to live in a lawful manner and having a baby here. The judge said he could not change the 180 sentence but that Mr. Arias could take his case to trial. He (Mr. Arias) talked to his lawyer, came back at the end of the calendar and accepted the plea.
Jesus Guadalupe Ortiz Dimas 27424 M was asking for asylum and lawyer Kincaid wanted it on the record though her client’s request could not be addressed until he was back at immigration. 30 days.
Ignacio Escalante Matias 27411M may also have requested asylum—I could not hear what lawyer Doyle said to the judge.
Andres Marrufo Rodriguez 27443M (lawyer Vargas) may have entered June 15 and been picked up September 17.
Jose Luis Casillas Martinez 27445M (lawyer Valdez) was picked up at a port of entry.
Judge Ferraro sentenced 3870 days with 11 people getting 180 days. That amounts to ten and one half years of incarceration.
