A list has been publicly released by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), detailing a large number of illegal aliens who were given free reign to commit crimes due to sanctuary city policies.
The list in question was specific to Oregon and Washington state, which have extensive sanctuary laws that bar local law enforcement from notifying federal officials before they release illegal aliens from detention.
One interesting case involved 52-year-old Mexican national Fidel Lope, who raped a dog earlier this year.
While being held in a Portland-area jail, it was discovered that Lope was in the US illegally after he was interviewed by ICE officials.
Despite an immigration detainer being lodged by ICE, the Multnomah County Jail released Lopez without notice after he served 60 days in jail.
Fortunately for ICE, the agency was able to apprehend Lopez at his residence and detained him at their detention center in Tacoma, Washington.
In another Portland-area case, Martin-Gallo-Gallardo was charged with domestic violence and later released by the Multnomah County jail , despite ICE putting in a detainer.
Several months later, Gallo-Gallardo would murder his wife. He is currently in the Clakamas County Jail on murder charges.
Following the murder, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office blamed ICE, claiming that agents should have tracked Gallo-Gallardo down following his release.
According to the Daily Mail, other cases include a Honduran man who dismembered his cousin following release, as well as a Mexican national who sexually assaulted a wheelchair-bound victim. In a cruel twist of fate, the victim was the same person that the illegal alien was initially jailed for raping.
In both cases, ICE had requested detainers and/or release notifications.
“There is an inherent increase in risk to personnel and bystanders when ICE officers and agents must go out into the community to proactively locate these previously detained criminal aliens,” ICE said in a statement.
