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.
Up to 200 Smuggled Illegals Run Out of 18-Wheeler Truck in Texas
200 illegal aliens escaped at once.
As many as two hundred illegal aliens fled from an 18-wheeler truck in Bexar County, Texas when the vehicle stopped at a QT gas station on Thursday, presenting a considerable public safety and security threat with the majority of the aliens still unaccounted for.
Witnesses described seeing a group of migrants that amounted to well above a hundred. The migrants fled an 18-wheeler truck near IH-37 and Loop 1604 at 6PM on Thursday, just as the winter storm in Texas hit the community at full strength.
Sheriff Javier Salazar is describing the migrants as nationals of Honduras and El Salvador. He revealed that the migrants were endangered by the smugglers that had shipped them in a refrigerated truck, with the aliens in danger of suffocating inside the airtight truck compartment.
ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations urged the public to come forward with information regarding the illegals in a statement regarding the incident.
“On Feb. 18, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to a call from Bexar County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) for assistance on a possible human smuggling case involving a semi-tractor trailer discovered in a local gas station parking lot. About 50 individuals both males and females were encountered. The undocumented immigrants, from Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, are being assisted by community based organizations. HSI special agents interviewed the migrants as part of a criminal investigation, which is ongoing. The status of those encountered is being reviewed. HSI urges anyone with information about this smuggling attempt to call (866) 347-2423.”
Law enforcement believes that the individuals responsible for smuggling the illegals escaped into the nearby woods with the individuals they moved into the United States. Efforts to apprehend the migrant siphon law enforcement resources during a state of emergency, when law-abiding citizens of south Texas are at risk of freezing to death inside their own homes.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spoke of apprehending 50 of the illegal immigrants shortly after the smuggling event, with more than a hundred illegals still loose.
Biden’s “America Last” approach to immigration and border security has immediately spurred a renaissance in human smuggling and illegal immigration, with smugglers advertising open borders to tentative migrants. Even as illegal migration spikes to levels unseen in years, the President instead is evaluating new proposals to convert ICE into a de facto customs agency, leaving the American people without an immigration law enforcement agency.
