Feds: Illegal Aliens Charged with Murder, Rape, Drunk Driving Released by Sanctuary State California

Illegal aliens charged with drunk driving and rape are routinely released by the sanctuary state of California, some of whom have gone on to allegedly murder Americans, a federal report details.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) latest report reveals the length to which the sanctuary state of California goes to protect and shield from deportation illegal aliens charged with crimes against Americans.

Between January 1 and March 31, 2018, the sanctuary state of California routinely released illegal aliens charged with drunk driving, even after ICE lodged a detainer on the suspect. An ICE detainer requests that local or state officials hold an illegal alien until ICE agents take over custody.

In one case, a 25-year-old illegal alien from Mexico was arrested in March 2018, April 2018, and September 2018 – all on drunk driving charges – by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. In every case, the illegal alien was taken into custody, ICE issued a detainer, and rather than turn him over to ICE agents for deportation, Ventura County released the illegal alien back into the community.

Last year, a 30-year-old illegal alien from Mexico was arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department for drug possession. ICE issued a detainer the same day, but the illegal alien was released. A month later, the illegal alien was arrested again and this time charged with murder. He is currently in custody though ICE agents fear Los Angeles County will release him again against their wishes.

In December 2017, a 28-year-old illegal alien from Mexico was arrested by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office for violating his probation. ICE issued a detainer, but the request went ignored and he was released. A month later, the illegal alien was arrested and charged with rape and threating a crime with intent to terrorize. Again, ICE issued a detainer, but the county released the accused rapist.

Days after being released, ICE agents were able to locate the illegal alien and he was deported from the U.S. months later.

One of the most revealing cases involved a 23-year-old illegal alien from Honduras who was arrested ten times by various California police departments between February 2018 and January 2019 and each time was released back into the community instead of being handed over to ICE agents. The illegal alien was repeatedly arrested for auto theft and burglary.

Over the course of two years, California refused to turn over 5,600 criminal illegal aliens to ICE agents for deportation, records obtained by the Immigration Reform Law Insititute (IRLI) reveal.

Of these 5,600 failed ICE detainers, more than 3,400 were lodged against illegal aliens who had been classified “Level 1” and “Level 2” offenders — indicating that these illegal aliens had been charged with crimes like homicide, kidnapping, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, drugs, and fraud.

California is home to the largest illegal alien population in the U.S., with at least 2.2 million illegal aliens of the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens in the country residing in the state. There are nine sanctuary states currently in the country.
