Illegal Bit Off Fingertip of ICE Agent in the Bronx
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.”
