A released illegal alien accused of rape, returned to his alleged victim’s house shortly after he was released. According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Antonio Perez, a 38-year-old Salvadoran illegal alien was release from the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office at around 3 am on October 9, 2019. Perez returned to the house of his alleged rape victim shortly thereafter and fortunately, ICE officials were able to detain him.
ICE officials had issued a detainer asking the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office to hold Perez and notify ICE if he was going to be released. The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office notified ICE about an hour before he was released, preventing ICE a reasonable amount of time to arrive and take custody.
Ice officials stated that the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office has been routinely failing to honor ICE detainers.
What is Ann Kirkpatrick (D) doing to help?
You might wonder what our current Congresswoman, Ann Kirkpatrick (D), is doing to help stop the flow of dangerous illegal alien criminals into the United States. The answer, she is actively engaged in the impeachment of President Trump.
How does impeaching President Trump stop illegal aliens? It doesn’t.
Ann Kirkpatrick has joined National Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff in a coup to take down a duly elected President. They have called for impeachment proceedings with no evidence and have actively manufactured their ‘evidence’ against the President.
We can’t afford to allow Ann Kirkpatrick to hold this Congressional seat for another term. Please join me in my effort to unseat her.
About Detainers (from ICE)
ICE lodges detainers on individuals who have been arrested on criminal charges and who ICE has probable cause to believe are removable aliens. The detainer asks the other law enforcement agency to notify ICE in advance of release and to maintain custody of the alien for a brief period of time so that ICE can take custody of that person in a safe and secure setting upon release from that custody. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.
Congress has established no process, requirement, or expectation directing ICE to seek a judicial warrant from already overburdened federal courts before taking custody of an alien on civil immigration violations. This idea is simply a figment created by those who wish to undermine immigration enforcement and excuse the ill-conceived practices of sanctuary jurisdictions that put politics before public safety.
When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release a criminal alien onto the streets this negatively impacts public safety and ICE’s efficiency in the apprehension of criminal aliens. Federal immigration laws authorize DHS to issue detainers and provide ICE broad authority to detain removable aliens.
