A routine traffic stop leads to an immigration bust and now nearly a dozen people are facing deportation.

It happened just before 12:30pm Wednesday. State troopers stopped a van that had a cracked windshield and say they discovered 11 illegal immigrants crammed in the van. Immigration and Customs Enforcement took them into custody. State patrol says I–70 is a known corridor for human trafficking.
