Here is another example of the left’s best and brightest. Jesper Joergensen, an illegal alien, has been arrested and charged with arson in a wildfire that charred 40,000+ acres. Colorado authorities say that Joergensen set a series of fires that led to the massive fire. According to them, he will be tried for arson, then turned over to federal authorities. The arrest was a culmination of a multi-agency investigation that included Costilla County Sheriff’s Office with assistance from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Colorado State Patrol (CSP), and ICE. So far over 41,000 acres have been burned and zero percent of it is contained.
Roughly 215 firefighters are battling the inferno, which is located about three hours south of Denver. Aerial firefighting efforts are also being used as conditions permit. The county also announced Saturday a slew of pre-evacuation orders for Huerfano County and other nearby areas.
The fire Joergensen allegedly started is one of several fires that are rumbling across the state amid dry, hot and windy conditions. A lightening strike sparked the Sugarloaf Fire in the Williams Fork Range near Silverthorne, Colorado – it has consumed more than 1,300 acres of land.
A massive fire burning near Durango in southwestern Colorado broke out June 1 and has charred more than 73 square miles, local reports note. It’s only 37 percent contained and remains under investigation. A fire near the Rocky Mountain National Park prompted evacuation orders Thursday for 300 homes.
This is just another reason why we need to be careful of who we let into the country. Crimes such as this are often preventable, because when we vet immigrants and find they have a criminal or mental history, we can simply refuse to let them into the country. 41,000 acres burned – for no good reason! Such a waste of our natural resources.
