More Immigrants Charged Under Trespassing Law

AP, May 13

HUDSON, NH — The police cited two illegal immigrants during a routine traffic stop under the state’s criminal trespass law, a strategy first used in New Ipswich last month.

Sergio Ruiz-Robles, 21, and Margarito Jaramillo Escobar, 23, both of Nashua, were issued the summons on Tuesday night after they were stopped along Route 102. They produced Mexican government identifications when asked for ID, Hudson Police Chief Richard Gendron said yesterday.

It was determined that the two were in the United States illegally, Gendron said. The men are scheduled to appear in Nashua District court on May 26. Ruiz-Robles also was issued a citation for driving without a valid license.

The criminal trespassing statute says a person is guilty if, “knowing that he is not licensed or privileged to do so, he enters or remains in any place.”

The idea is that if the immigrants are in the country illegally, they’re also in Hudson illegally, Gendron said.
