Feds arrest 15 aliens at Roswell

Area 51 rumours confirmed

Intelligent flash storage arrays

It appears that the black helicopter brigade were right all along about Area 51, since US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operatives this week arrested 15 aliens at the facility who were, chillingly, in the process of painting military aircraft when the net closed.

That's according to an official ICE report under the splendid headline "ICE arrests 15 aliens in Roswell working for US military contractor".

The aliens in question were described as "determined to be illegally residing and working in the United States" and will be sent back to their place of origin.

Any US reader who suspects that he may be working alongside an alien can report any "suspicious activity by calling ICE's toll-free hotline at: 1-866-347-2423". Stay vigilant. ®
