Two Mexican citizens with criminal records who had been suspected of sexually assaulting children are now freely roaming the streets, all because liberal-run New York and New Jersey refused to hold them in local jails for ICE.
The cases were different, one in New York and one in New Jersey.
In New York, Joaquin Rodriguez Quiroz was arrested on rape charges of a victim under 17 – a felony in the state of New York – but was let go from a local jail after ICE had asked to keep him there.
Similarly, in New Jersey, Luciano Trejo-Dominguez had been taken in on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a victim aged 13-15, criminal restraint, sexual contact, and endagaring a child’s welfare.
After ICE spent TWO WHOLE DAYS filing requests to New Jersey for the suspect to be held at a county jail, the requests were denied, and Trejo-Dominguez is now free.
I don’t know about you, but this is not what justice looks like to me.
These stories have spawned outrage across the board.
On Twitter, folks are telling it like it is:
Anyone reading this in New York, New Jersey, remember this when election time rolls around!
Vote out the Democrats deciding this!
CBS New York has more details on the release of the Mexican child rape suspects into our streets:
Federal immigration officials say two alleged child rapists are on the run after authorities in New York and New Jersey refused to hold the suspects in jail for ICE.
According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Mexican nationals were each taken into custody for separate incidents in the Tri-State Area on charges they sexually assaulted a minor.
Despite requests that the men be held in jail until officers from ICE could pick them up, local law enforcement in both states released the suspects back into the public.
ICE says the first man — Luciano Trejo-Dominguez – was arrested by Vineland, New Jersey police for allegedly restraining and sexually assaulting a child younger than 16 on Aug. 12.
Over the next two days, ICE and Pacific Enforcement Response Center both filed detainers to have Trejo-Dominguez held at the Cumberland County Jail. Those requests were denied and the alleged rapist was released on Aug. 23.
The Washington Examiner also said:
Two alleged child rapists are at large after New York and New Jersey law enforcement authorities refused to hold them in jail for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, immigration officials say.
The Mexican nationals were taken into custody for separate incidents on charges that they sexually assaulted a minor. Luciano Trejo-Dominguez was arrested by New Jersey police for allegedly restraining and sexually assaulting a child younger than 16 in August, while Joaquin Rodriguez Quiroz was arrested by police in New York on 3rd-degree rape charges earlier this month.
Trejo-Dominguez faces charges of aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault of a victim 13-15 years-old, criminal restraint, criminal sexual contact, and endangering the welfare of a child. Meanwhile, Rodriguez Quiroz's charge constitutes a class-E felony.
ICE and Pacific Enforcement Response Center both filed detainers to have the men held in jail until ICE officers could pick them up. However, local law enforcement in both states then released the suspects back into the public despite the requests.
