A routine traffic stop leads to much more, as a dozen illegal immigrants are detained by law enforcement.

According to the Colorado State Patrol, a white Astro mini-van was riding low and swerving over the lines on Interstate 70. When the trooper pulled the van over he discovered that the van was full of illegal immigrants.

The trooper then contacted immigration and customs enforcement which took the illegals into custody. Officials say there has been a recent increase in the detainment of illegal immigrants. Those in the van were heading to do farm work in Ohio. There were twelve in total, nine men and three women.
