The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has announced the deep penetration of “Sanctuary City” Los Angeles, in a sweep that rounded up 162 federal criminal illegal aliens in the Democratic Party’s bastion of open borders.
Making matters more intriguing, 90% of those arrested are previously convicted criminals, with rap sheets that include rape and voluntary manslaughter, according to ICE.
The disturbing series of raids have to occur without the assistance of any local, state, or federal law enforcement agencies, as per the “Sanctuary” laws signed into effect by Governor Jerry Brown; as well as providing a deeply-needed insight into the type of dangerous illegal aliens which exist in the state that pose a threat to the law-abiding California taxpayers.
There were 53 cases in which ICE had filed detainers for California's law enforcement agencies to cooperate with then in handing over the illegal aliens for deportation, but as per the Democratic Party policies all of those would-be law enforcement agencies are barred from communication with the federal government, so those agencies instead released the dangerous illegal aliens back into society.
This policy endangers not only every resident of California but the rest of the United States of America, as these criminal aliens could freely roam about until they enter another state.
“At-large criminal alien arrests are among the most dangerous types of enforcement actions ICE officers are engaged in on a daily basis,” said David Marin, Field Office Director for ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Los Angeles. “Thanks to their remarkable efforts, there are 143 fewer criminals on the streets. We will continue to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests to ensure the safety of the law-abiding citizens of our Southland communities.”
Among the illegal aliens who were arrested, the following specific individuals had these major convictions on their records, and California authorities simply set them free, as reported by ICE.
<blockquote>”A 32-year-old Mexican national arrested in Maywood on June 10, convicted of rape and was sentenced to 8 years’ incarceration. This individual has also been identified as a documented Gang Member of the “Krazy Ass Mexicans”. ”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”A 47-year-old, previously deported, El Salvadorian national arrested in Winnetka on June 12, who was convicted of Voluntary Manslaughter and sentenced to seven years in prison. DHS databases indicate this individual was released by local authorities despite an ICE detainer.”</blockquote>
<blockquote>”50-year-old Mexican national arrested in Santa Barbara on June 10, who has a prior conviction for Assault with Intent to Commit Rape and was sentenced to two years confinement. This case has been accepted for federal prosecution under 8 USC 1326 for Reentry of a Previously Removed Criminal Alien. DHS databases indicate this individual was released by local authorities despite an ICE detainer.</blockquote>
<blockquote>”A 33-year-old Venezuelan national arrested in Santa Ana on June 11, who has prior convictions for Assault on a Peace Officer, Battery of Spouse, Violation of Court Order to Prevent Domestic Violence, Battery, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Possession of Controlled Substance-Narcotics, Alcohol in Vehicle, Receiving Known Stolen Property, and DUI Drugs/Alcohol causing Bodily Injury.”</blockquote>
The ICE press release also says that countless other cases included criminals with convictions for drug trafficking, weapons violations, domestic violence, sexual crimes against children, violent assaults of law enforcement officers and emergency responders, grand theft, burglary; and many additional crimes.
At least five of those who were apprehended by ICE agents are now facing federal prosecution for illegal re-entry, a crime in which is brought against an illegal alien who has been previously deported only to be caught inside the United States of America again.
That could bring up to twenty years imprisonment, further making those illegal aliens a burden on taxpayers for two decades, when we could simply build a border wall and end the problem once and for all.
Those who do not have pending charges against them will be immediately deported to their nation of origin, until the next time they decide to violate federal immigration laws.
ICE Fugitive Operations Teams were behind the raids throughout California, with the intent to arrest federal criminal illegal aliens who are in violation of our nation’s immigration laws.
Eighty of the arrests were in Los Angeles County, twenty-five of the arrests were in Orange County, fifteen of the arrests were in San Bernardino County, twelve the arrests were in Riverside County, twenty-two of the arrests were in Santa Barbara, and an additional eight arrests in Ventura County.
“The arrestees (157 men and 5 women) included nationals from 12 countries: Columbia (1), El Salvador (10), Guatemala (10), Honduras (3), Iran (1), Mexico (129), Nigeria (1), Peru (2), Philippines (2), Romania (1), United Kingdom (1), and Venezuela (1),” ICE stated in the Press Release.
“ICE continues to focus its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety, and border security. ICE conducts targeted immigration enforcement non-compliance with federal law and agency policy,” ICE wrote., However, as ICE Director Thomas Homan has made clear, ICE does not exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement. All of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention, and if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.”
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency risk their lives on a daily basis to ensure that our nation's immigration laws are followed and that the dangerous criminal illegal aliens are deported to their nation of origin. We owe them tremendous gratitude for their efforts.
