SILVERTHORNE — A high school student who was locked up by immigration authorities is being given time to graduate before his case comes up in court.

Jaime Leon Rivas walked out of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement lockup in Aurora on April 2 after his attorney got a stay of removal order from authorities.

According to the Summit Daily (http://tinyurl.com/l4f5mz7 ), the order will give Leon Rivas enough time for the Snowy Peaks High School senior to graduate and make a case that he should be given asylum in the United States.

Leon Rivas immigrated to the United States in 2005 from El Salvador when he was 10 years old.

Leon Rivas was later detained by ICE officials and persuaded to sign voluntary departure forms.
