Illegal Bit Off Fingertip of ICE Agent in the Bronx

ICE had requested a hold on the suspect previously, but he was released due to New York’s sanctuary policy.

An illegal alien from the Dominican Republic allegedly bit off the finger of a U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent earlier this month when the law enforcement agency attempted to detain him.

“Santos Felix entered the country in June 2015 on a visitors visa, sources said, and then overstayed it and never left,” according to The New York Post“The bloody encounter occurred at his Bronx home after officers uncuffed Santos Felix so he could put on an article of clothing, court documents say.”

Felix has been charged in federal court with assault after he ran into his bedroom to escape the agents and bit off the fingertip of one agent who attempted to restrain him.

“Sources said Santos Felix has racked up a criminal history while in the US, including a prior conviction for driving while intoxicated and a Sept. 29, 2018, arrest by local authorities for assault charges,” according to the report. “ICE said it filed to take him into custody following the state assault charge, but instead he was released.”

The release was the product of New York City’s “sanctuary city” policy, which harbors illegal aliens against the will of federal law enforcement.

Once again, an ICE spokesman was forced to denounce sanctuary city policies, and blasted New York City’s refusal to enforce the rule of law.

“Communities are safer when law enforcement works together, yet sanctuary city policies continue to hinder the coordination needed to keep dangerous criminals off our streets,” the spokesman reportedly said.

“The officer’s injury was the direct, foreseeable and entirely avoidable result of New York’s criminal alien sanctuary policies. Proponents of sanctuary policies claim they make communities safer, but in many cases they are causing more harm than good.”

Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Anti-E-Verify Republicans On Notice

Some Republicans want to water down the proposal.

Published

on

As a battle over a strong statewide E-Verify law heats up in Tallahassee, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis is cautioning Republicans who seek to neuter the law over the ire they’ll face from conservative voters.

Florida is set to pass a E-Verify law that will prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Currently in the Florida Senate committee process, big business interests are seeking to institute special exemptions for industries that commonly hire illegals.

DeSantis is pushing back hard against the effort to put free passes in the legislation for the agricultural industry. Another area of contention is over the law’s enforcement mechanism. Elements seeking to neuter the Florida E-Verify system want employers to merely promise they aren’t hiring illegals, as opposed to making them definitively prove it.

DeSantis was clear about warning Republicans who try to neuter the e-Verify proposal when speaking to the press outside of the state capital on Wednesday.

DeSantis’ warning to Republicans who tacitly support giveaways of cheap labor and non-enforcement of immigration law should be taken seriously by any legislator who considers themselves a conservative, and relies upon a conservative constituency.

Senator Tom Lee, who represents Florida’s 20th district, is cautioning that Governor DeSantis could veto the entire bill and force lawmakers to start over if they stuff it full of exemptions for scofflaw big business interests. He says that the effort to make employers merely promise to hire illegals is no different than instituting an impotent “honor system.”

The law currently will mandate that businesses in Florida verify their employees’ legal status by July of 2022.
