ICE Releases List of Murderers And Rapists Protected Under Sanctuary Laws
Immigration and Customs Enforcement reveal cases in which they requested detainers
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have criticized Washington state’s new sanctuary state law by releasing a list of criminals that still present a danger to the public.
According to a recent press release, issued by the office, it listed seven cases in which ICE requested detainers on criminal illegal aliens held in local jails before the sought were to ignored leading to disastrous consequences.
Rosalio Ramos-Ramos was arrested last January for murder and dismembering his victim, according to ICE.
The incident occurred just t months after Ramos was released from a Washington jail even though ICE requested an immigration detainer and notification of his pending release.
Neither where honored.
ICE also highlights the case of Mexican national Martin Gallo-Gallardo, who was in a Clackamas County Oregon jail.
According to the statement, jail officials ignored ICE’s request for an immigration detainer and notification of release.
Gallardo was released and then arrested months later for allegedly murdering his wife.
According to Fox News: The most recent case involves Francisco Carranza-Ramirez, who was also in the U.S. illegally.
He was convicted of raping a Seattle woman who used a wheelchair twice.
He was sentenced to time served and released, under the judge’s order that he self-deport back to Mexico.
King County Sheriff’s officials say he finally did return to Mexico, but not before assaulting his victim a third time.
Meantime, Washington state just passed what some immigration advocates are calling the most robust sanctuary state law in the country.
It forbids local jails and state prisons from honoring ICE immigration detainers and even prevents corrections officials from even letting ICE know about the pending release of a criminal illegal immigrant.
The law also directs the attorney general to draft new rules restricting ICE agents from making immigration arrests at courthouses and hospitals.
In signing the law, Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee reportedly stated, “We will not be complicit in the Trump administration’s depraved efforts to break up a hard-working immigrant and refugee families.”
Now, ICE’s Deputy Director of the Seattle Field Office, Bryan Wilcox, says the law is putting lives in jeopardy.
“I think we’ve sort of hit a critical mass and this statute that the state passed is one step too far,” said Wilcox in an interview with Fox News.
