Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced on Monday that a Mexican national living in the United States illegally has been charged with causing a death while driving without a license after initiating an accident that resulted in a death of a 7-year-old child.
Jorge Rodriguez-Saldana, 30, was charged by the Egg Harbor Township Police Department in New Jersey with a third-degree felony on July 11 following an accident where his vehicle struck a grandmother and her two grandchildren. The grandmother was critically injured, and one of the children was killed as a result of the crash.
After he was charged, Rodriguez-Saldana was released by local authorities on a summons to walk the streets. Atlantic County law enforcement did not notify ICE and refer the case to them, despite his status. ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) apprehended the illegal immigrant on July 13, finding him in Horsham, Pennsylvania.
ICE mentioned in a press release that sanctuary policies allowed this potentially violent criminal back into society where he could have harmed more Americans.
“Unfortunately this is another example that makes apparent the significant public safety concerns the NJ AG Directive limiting cooperation with ICE poses,” said John Tsoukaris, field office director for ICE-ERO Newark.
“Had it not been for the persistent, courageous and diligent efforts of ICE-ERO to track him down, this individual might have fled. We will continue to make public safety our highest priority despite dangerous state policies,” Tsoukaris added.
New Jersey was declared a sanctuary state earlier this year after a directive issued by Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who was appointed to the position by Democratic Governor Phil Murphy, gave free reign to illegal immigrants in the Garden State.
“New Jersey’s law enforcement officers protect the public by investigating state criminal offenses and enforcing state criminal laws. They are not responsible for enforcing civil immigration violations,” Grewal wrote.
“Although state, county, and local law enforcement officers should assist federal immigration authorities when required to do so by law, they should also be mindful that providing assistance above and beyond those requirements threatens to blur the distinctions between state and federal actors and between federal immigration law and state criminal law,” he added.
“Under federal and state law, local law enforcement agencies are not required to enforce civil administrative warrants or detainers issued by federal immigration officers rather than federal or state judges,” Grewal noted, making it clear that New Jersey law enforcement are ordered not to help ICE enforce immigration law.
The results of these Democratic policies against the rule of law in New Jersey have already become deadly, as a seven-year-old child lost their life because an illegal immigrant apparently felt welcomed to drive the roads of this sanctuary state.
Over 200 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Bust of Human Smuggling Operation in Laredo, Texas
More than 200 illegal aliens were transferred to the custody of Customs and Border Patrol last week, with the wave of arrests coming as authorities moved upon a human smuggling ring operating in the Laredo, Texas area.
Border Patrol agents most recently recounted finding 25 people hiding within a horse trailer at an immigration checkpoint on Thursday. They’ve encountered other smuggling attempts with the use of commercial tractor-trailers, box trucks, agriculture and fuel containers, and a travel trailer. CBP has reported making 242 arrests last week alone, a figure not seen since before the coronavirus pandemic.
At least two of the men arrested by CBP for attempting to unlawfully enter the country have outstanding arrest warrants for sex crimes in the United States, one of which is said to have targeted a minor. Both of these suspects are currently facing extradition proceedings for their alleged crimes.
The south Texas city appears to have become a hub for cartel-affiliated human smuggling, which has resumed in force following a lull during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. CBP and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on a human smuggling stash house in the city last month, in which 47 illegal aliens were being stashed.
The freeze on illegal immigration that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic appears to largely be over, with criminal smuggling groups now once again attempting to move large groups of unlawful aliens into the United States. It’s very likely that smuggling organizations will attempt to move their customers across the southern border in a greatly increased capacity if Joe Biden is inaugurated in January. The Democrat candidate has already confirmed he only intends to deport illegal aliens who are convicted of a violent felony, which would largely abandon the enforcement of American immigration law.
