An illegal immigrant living in San Francisco who was able to pass a background check to drive for a ride-sharing service has been charged for a series of rapes.

“The San Francisco district attorney’s office charged Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 36, with raping four women while posing as a ride-share driver in San Francisco.,” according to the New York Post.

According to Kate Margolis a spokesperson for Lyft, the events happened while the driver was off-duty, and the company is investigating how he was able to beat their background check system without having proper documentation.

“Margolis also said it appears Vilchez Lazo ‘fraudulently represented himself’ in applying to drive for Lyft and passing its background check despite his immigration status,” according to the Post. “The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency said Tuesday that Vilchez Lazo was living in the United States illegally.”

A judge revoked bail, ordering Vilchez Lazo to jail while he awaits trial. His charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison, and if he is ever released ICE plans to deport him back to his native Peru.

However, with San Francisco’s sanctuary policy in place, ICE fears that its detainer request will be ignored by the city. Local law enforcement is barred from working with federal immigration services under the policy.

ICE officials blasted San Francisco’s sanctuary policy, which has also been implemented in other major metropolitan areas around the country.

“The policy ‘not only provides a refuge for illegal aliens, but it also shields criminal aliens who prey on people in the community,’ ICE spokesman Richard Rocha said,” according to the Post. 

Kate Steinle was shot and killed by Garcia Zarate, an illegal immigrant who should have been deported after being arrested on marijuana possession charges. San Francisco also ignored ICE’s detainer request for Zarate. Steinle’s death caused a national uproar.

The House recently passed Kate’s Law, named for Steinle, which will impose stricter penalties for deported illegal aliens who return to the United States.

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE

CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.

Published

Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.

According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.

It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.

Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.

If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.

Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
