ICE captures aliens with felony convictions for assault, child sexual assault, weapons violations and more…
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers in New York recently announced they had arrested 35 illegal aliens whom sanctuary cities had released in defiance active detainers.
ICE places detainers on illegal immigrants who are arrested on criminal charges and subject to deportation, but sanctuary jurisdictions routinely ignore the detainers and release criminal illegal aliens.
“The success of this operation is a direct result of the full commitment of the dedicated men and women of ICE.” said Thomas R. Decker, field office director for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in New York.
“In spite of the significant obstacles that ICE faces due to the dangerous policies created by local jurisdictions, which hinder the cooperation between ICE and local law enforcement, ICE will continue to devote the full efforts of our agency to protecting citizens and enforcing federal immigration law despite challenges being pursued by politically motivated individuals.”
ICE’s discovery of sanctuary cities disobeying the law came during a five-day ERO mission that led to the arrest of 118 illegal aliens in New York City, Long Island and Hudson Valley.
Out of 118 illegal aliens arrested, 107 had either criminal convictions or criminal charges awaiting trial. Moreover, 55 illegal aliens either disobeyed an order to leave the United States or had returned to the United States after being deported.
ICE removed from the streets many dangerous illegal aliens with felony convictions for assault, child sexual assault, weapons violations and more.
ICE arrested a 44-year-old male Ecuadorian national who was convicted of attempted sexual assault against two female victims younger than 8 years old. He was sentenced to 10 years probation and released.
ICE also arrested a 23-year-old, male, Dominican national who was indicted for third-degree rape against a child. The New York Police Department set him free, despite ICE having placed an active detainer on him in response to the criminal charges and illegal immigration status.
