ICE Calls Out Illinois County For Releasing Over 1000 Criminal Illegal Aliens
Dems don't realize the great disservice they are doing to themselves when it comes to their Illegal migrant sanctuaries. They fail to realize that these sanctuary cities are also harboring criminals and spit in the face of law enforcement. ICE made this point even more apparent after calling out Illinois's Cook County, where they released 1070 criminals instead of allowing ICE to deport them.
"Law enforcement agencies in Cook County, Illinois, released 1,070 criminal aliens and immigration violators in Fiscal Year 2019, despite requests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to notify the agency prior to their release from local custody.
“The most concerning issue about working in an area that refuses to cooperate with ICE is not only that we do not know which criminal aliens are being released from custody, but the public doesn’t know either,” said Henry Lucero, ICE’s acting deputy executive associate director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). “Because ICE does not have access to standard Illinois law enforcement databases, it’s difficult to accurately account for all the aliens who have been arrested, released and committed additional crimes. However, with the limited information ICE can verify, we know that police resources are being wasted, more people are being victimized, and it’s a matter of time until something more significant happens.”
They even included examples of just what some of the criminals did that Dems are protecting.
"On Dec. 3, 2018, ICE lodged a detainer with the Cook County Jail on Rokas Ablacinskas, a 22-year-old citizen of Lithuania, following his arrest for attempted murder, aggravated battery of a victim over the age of 60 and aggravated battery in a public place. Without notifying ICE, the Cook County Jail released Ablacinskas Sept. 17, 2019, and he remains at large in the community. "
"On, Dec. 10, 2018, ICE lodged a detainer with the Cook County Jail on Isidro Ramirez-Hernandez, a 52-year-old citizen of Mexico, following his arrest for aggravated domestic battery and strangulation. Despite an active immigration detainer, the Cook County Jail released Ramirez-Hernandez March 18, 2019, and he remains at large in the community."
Not all of the illegals are attempted murderers but many of them are repeat offenders and Cook County should turn them over to ICE. Why would they want to keep people around that are breaking the laws and potentially hurting American citizens?
