Over the past year another 1000 illegal criminals were released in Illinois bypassing ICE
ICE is sounding the alarm. According to official statistics, the sanctuary county of Cook County, in 2019 alone released more than 1 thousand criminals who are illegally in the United States.
The law enforcement authorities of the sanctuary cities have deliberately ignored the ICE’s deportation requests, thereby endangering the public. Officials report that more than 80 percent of the released illegal criminals are back on the crime path.
“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,” ICE official Henry Lucero said in a statement, according to Breitbart.
Among those released there are those accused of domestic violence and attempted murder, and these are only those about whom ICE is aware.
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. [Emphasis added]
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. [Emphasis added]
On Aug. 10, 2019, ICE lodged a detainer with the Cook County Jail on Mahmoud Abu Maghli, a 27-year-old citizen of Jordan, following his arrest by the Burbank (Illinois) Police Department for recklessly discharging a firearm. He remains in the Cook County Jail where, under existing sanctuary laws, he will be released into the community. [Emphasis added]
In Los Angeles County, California, about 100 criminal illegal aliens are released every day back into the general public, reports Breitbart.
