ICE says Sanctuary City Released Illegal Immigrant Who Then Murdered 3 The Next Day

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said they placed a detainer on Perez while he was in custody, but the request was not honored nor was the agency notified when he was let go, said Corey Price, acting executive director of ICE.

If this is true, do you approve of these sanctuary city policies? Are the city officials responsible for this decision now culpable? Do you believe these actions are criminal? Do the victims have a civil case against this entire city? What say you?

There is nothing to “approve” of… Cities/counties and states have a constitutional right to treat the detainers as requests and nothing more… Cities/counties and states has repeatably been held financially liable for violating the rights of persons held under these detainers…

In this case, ICE had 51 days to get an order of deportation or a warrant and did NOTHING…

In Perez’s case, county officials said via email from a spokeswoman Friday, ICE was advised the county wouldn’t honor its detainer request in December because it didn’t meet the necessary criteria

During the ensuing 51 days Perez was in custody, officials wrote, ICE didn’t request an order of deportation from a federal judge.

“This order would have authorized Middlesex County to turn over custody of Mr. Perez prior to, or upon completion of his sentence,” they wrote. “Instead ICE officials chose to do nothing, which places all responsibility of Mr. Perez’s actions squarely upon ICE."

What you should be asking yourself is why ICE continues to try to gin up outrage with cases like these instead of implementing policies that prevent these types of situations.

so the city can do as they please, my question is…are they now culpable for murder?

Yes, the city can implement whatever policy they desire and no they are not culpable for murder. Is ICE cupable? They have DUTY to enforce immigration law, they chose to ignore this person for 51 days ultimately leading to his release. Why are you not outraged that ICE is not doing their job?

In an email to the Associated Press, Middlesex County officials said the detainer wasn’t honored because it didn’t meet the necessary criteria.

“This order would have authorized Middlesex County to turn over custody of Mr. Perez prior to, or upon completion of his sentence,” they wrote. “Instead ICE officials chose to do nothing, which places all responsibility of Mr. Perez’s actions squarely upon ICE.”

Explain to me how ICE is at fault? If I’m understanding this correctly, ICE asked the city to turn over Perez either now or upon completion of his sentence? How are they culpable?

Oh it wasnt a white guy that killed somebody we better be outraged and start shouting for legislative changes

Yes, they said pretty please and the city said, “Screw that, follow due process and get a deportation order from a judge.”

ICE had 51 days after they were notified to start deportation proceedings, issue a warrant, any number of things.

Why did Fox News write the story and omitted the 51 days ICE had to purse this individual?

…so you’re saying the city is 100% responsible for releasing this guy.

I will say that ICE is 100% responsible for not doing their job… If they can’t get a warrant or a deportation order in 51 days they should be fired…

Sanctuary city policy fails in an epic way and ICE gets the blame.

Why am I not surprised…

The USA is becoming what we are importing. Worst aspect is disregard for the law…

:cry:

Yes…ICE should be embarrassed for disregarding the law…

How do you explain ICE doing NOTHING for 51 days while he was in custody? ICE knew that were not going to honor the detainer, it did not meet their standards for honoring detainers…

By the way, Middlesex County does honor detainers, just not for lessor crimes… Here is their policy:

Should we classify them as a kinda sanctuary city?

Law is the law and ICE did not let the monster out of the cage.

:cry:

Amazing how many people claim they are fervent supporters of our federated system of government and descry “CENTGOV” overreach…except when it is politically inconvenient to do so…

Immigration is the primary function of the FED level after national defense which is sometimes one and the same.

Not a pot argument here…

:cry:

We are a country of laws. The law states you cannot hold someone indefinitely without legal justification.

Is THAT how you justify loosening a monster onto society?

The law is very, very clear… States/Counties/Cities are under NO obligation to honor detainers…
