I will continue to hammer on this theme as long as the progressive socialist left advocates for and promotes the absurd policy of sanctuary for illegal immigrants. The left continues to place their ideological agenda of embracing illegal immigrants over our very own children. I find it utterly hypocritical when leftists cry for gun control to protect children. However, when our children are being killed and abused by criminal illegal immigrants what do we hear? Yes, crickets.
As I have shared with y’all before, my home state of Texas is number one in America for human and sex trafficking. Yet, leftist talking heads like Bob Frank O’Rourke and Julian Castro support open borders and the decriminalization of illegally crossing our border.
And now this, as reported by CBS2 New York:
“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. Trejo-Dominguez has been charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault of a victim 13-15 years-old, criminal restraint, criminal sexual contact, and endangering the welfare of a child.
The other man – Joaquin Rodriguez Quiroz – was arrested by police in New York’s Westchester County on 3rd-degree rape charges on Sept. 6. Quiroz allegedly raped a minor under 17-years old, which is a class-E felony in New York. ICE again lodged a detainer request with the Westchester County Jail on Sept. 7, but the Mexican national was released after posting bond.
New Jersey’s attorney general says the Immigrant Trust Directive issued last year limits law enforcement’s cooperation with ICE.”
That last line tells you all you need to know about the progressive socialist left. The NJ Attorney General says that their Immigrant Trust Directive is more important than the safety of our children. And how oxymoronic — emphasis on the root word “moron” — that the leftists would name something an Immigrant TRUST Directive? Whose TRUST are they seeking?
Yes, the leftists will shed fake tears over children being transported across our border illegally. But when it comes to the case of a young American woman, Kate Steinle, being gunned down by a five-time deported criminal illegal immigrant there was not even a mention. As a matter of fact, the leftists in the sanctuary state of California and the sanctuary city of San Francisco acquitted her killer and did not even sentence him on criminal possession of a firearm.
He was released and walked free . . .
This is indefensible, yet the leftists will denigrate anyone challenging their love affair with criminal illegal immigrants. The question we should pose is simple to our friends and neighbors calling themselves, Democrats: illegal immigrants . . . or our children?
