On Saturday, November 30, former Acting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan declared that a Colorado sheriff’s department decision to let an illegal alien run loose was a “political” decision.
This same illegal alien is now accused of attempted murder and his release is viewed as a “searing indictment” against sanctuary city policies.
Osmani Garces-Ortiz, 37, was arrested in October for trespassing and drug charges in Arapahoe County according to authorities. ICE requested that the sheriff’s office give them a detainer on Garces-Ortiz after he posted bond.
However, according to sheriff’s policy, they cannot hold inmates for extra time unless ICE is able to provide a warrant, which is based on state law.
No less than a month after his release, Garces-Ortiz was arrested for attempted murder in a case where he stabbed a victim, according to a report from USA Today.
Homan, who made an appearance on “Fox & Friends: Weekend”, claims that the crime could have been prevented if ICE had the ability to take the suspect into custody.
“Sanctuary city policies [are] just ridiculous,” he asserted. “Here’s a person who was in the custody of local officials because he was arrested for a crime, so they chose to lock him up and put him in a jail cell, and ICE notified them: ‘We want him before you release him.’ And, it didn’t happen. They didn’t honor a detainer.”
“And I’ve read the story,” he stated. “They were saying, ‘Well, there’s a legal issue.’ There is no legal issue. The detainer’s honored by most law enforcement agencies across the country. This is a political decision — not a legal decision.”
Garces-Ortiz, is a Cuban nation national who illegally entered the U.S. in 2008 by boat near Key West, Florida, according to ICE officials. He has a track record of encounters with immigration officials and was denied permanent residence in the U.S. due to his criminal history.
ICE Denver released a statement last Friday stating that they were advised of Garces-Ortiz’s imminent release. However, ICE Denver stated, “a notification that an alien is about to be released to the lobby is not a functional way to ensure transfer of custody.”
Chief Vince Lane recounted how the sheriff’s office notified ICE that Garces-Ortiz would be released and that “at the time of the inmate’s release from custody a legal reason to continue to hold the inmate did not exist.”
Homan declared that “this isn’t new for them [Arapahoe County] and he added, “They’ve been a sanctuary jurisdiction for a long time, along with most of Colorado.”
“The most recent decision legal on the detainer is out of the Fifth Circuit [U.S. Court of Appeals], and it says detainers are constitutional,” Homan informed the “Friends: Weekend” hosts.
Homan stated that the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department’s decision to let Garces-Ortiz go was based on a previous detainer which “didn’t clearly show that they had probable cause to make the arrest.”
“The new detainer, [which] has been in place for three years now, has that probable cause statement in the detainer, which makes it a legal document,” he commented.
“So again, they have their own attorneys. Their attorneys can certainly look at the Immigration Nationality Act to see detainers are the tool established by Congress within the federal law to take custody of [illegal] aliens within 48 hours,” Homan stated.
This case demonstrates the many dangers of America’s mass migration policies.
Mass migration poses a legitimate danger to public security and even strains the American government’s capabilities in providing safety.
Unless it wants more cases like these to occur, Congress must act now.
Many American lives could be saved simply by restoring sovereignty at the borders and overhauling the U.S’s migration system.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
