A North Carolina county is set to release two illegal aliens onto the streets who have been charged with raping children, and another illegal who has been hit with heroin trafficking charges.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials drew attention to this problematic situation that is unfolding in Mecklenburg County, as the rule of law disintegrates due to leftist resistance against the “America First” policies of President Donald Trump.
“The only way a person is subject to an ICE detainer in Mecklenburg County is if they are handcuffed and arrested for a crime committed in the local community,” Acting ICE Director Matt Albence said.
“The only persons protected by these misguided policies are criminals as the only way a person is subject to a detainer is if they’ve been arrested for a crime beyond anything to do with their immigration status,” he added.
The suspects are: Alejandro Gomez-Cervantes, who has been charged with five counts of indecent liberties with a child; Rigoberto Murcia-Martinez, who has been charged with three counts of indecent liberties with a child; and Jasmine Villareal, who has been charged with three counts of trafficking heroin or opium.
“It is past time to put aside all the political rhetoric and listen to the facts – and the fact is, people are being hurt and victimized every day because of jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with ICE,” Albence said.
“It is my sincere desire to work with local partners to whatever extent they are willing to work with this agency in what should be our shared goal to ensure public safety,” he added. “Uncooperative jurisdictions such as Mecklenburg County should be on notice that as long as criminal offenders are being released, they should get used to seeing a lot more ICE at-large enforcement activity in their communities.”
Mecklenburg County, which is the home of NC’s most populous city Charlotte, became a sanctuary county in Dec. 2018. Sheriff Garry McFadden announced shortly after his election that he was terminating an agreement with ICE that allowed his deputies to assist with immigration enforcement inside the county jail.
This is not the first time that McFadden’s lax immigration policies have earned him the fury of ICE. They criticized him in August when his refusal to cooperate with federal law allowed another alleged rapist, 33-year-old Honduran national Oscar Pacheco-Leonardo, to be let loose on the streets for months.
“By releasing a previously deported alien facing serious criminal charges, Mecklenburg County chose to release a serious public safety threat onto the streets of Charlotte where he was free to potentially harm others for nearly two months until his capture by ICE,” ICE said in a statement about Sheriff McFadden.
“The Mecklenburg County sheriff’s decision to restrict cooperation with ICE serves as an open invitation to aliens who commit criminal offenses that Mecklenburg County is a safe haven for persons seeking to evade federal authorities, and residents of Mecklenburg County are less safe today than last year due these policies,” ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Atlanta Field Office Director Sean Hallaher said.
Leftist government officials at the state and local levels will continue to exacerbate the national immigration crisis in order to rebuke President Trump, even if it causes the vulnerable to be needlessly victimized as a result.
Illegal Alien Arrested in the Beating, Torture, and Death of His Nine Year Old Son in Idaho
Erik Osuna is an illegal immigrant.
A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.
Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.
The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.
Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.
Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
