At least 100 Spanish-speaking immigrants arrived in Denver on Monday night and Colorado officials have no idea where they came from, according to multiple mainstream media reports. 

Fox Denver reports the number of immigrants at around 150, while liberal 9News says the number is closer to 100 and it’s unclear if they arrived on a single bus. 

State and city officials say they did not know the immigrants would be arriving in Colorado and do not know where the immigrants specifically originated from, although the Office of Emergency Management told Fox Denver that the migrants originated from the southern border. 

The Christian organization Denver Rescue Mission is housing some of the immigrants while the remainder have been sent to a local Denver recreation center. 

We’ll update this story as more details become available.
