In addition to building a “big, beautiful wall” along the U.S.-Mexico border, the president pledge to get rid of “sanctuary cities” and step up internal enforcement of all immigration laws.
At every single turn the Democrat Left has opposed him: In Congress, in the courts, and in the media.
But the president has remained true to his word, insofar as he can make things happen on his own. He has invoked emergency powers to secure funds for new sections of border wall after successive Republican and Democrat congresses refused to fund his requests. He has instructed the appropriate federal agencies to enforce all immigration laws. And he has issued executive orders aimed at carrying out his pro-immigration enforcement agenda.
Democrats continue to oppose him, however, especially on the state and local level where they dominate. A favorite tactic that has come into wider use over the past couple of years is to refuse “detainer requests” from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
Those are requests for local authorities to hold illegal aliens accused of crimes for a certain period until ICE can send agents to pick them up. That seems like a simple request to fulfill, not to mention it enhances public safety.
However, time and again, Democrat-run cities and localities have refused to hold illegal alien criminals, even those who have been accused of horrific crimes — including sexual crimes against children.
As The Gateway Pundit reported this week:
Hector Moran-Espinoza, an illegal alien from Guatemala living in Philadelphia, was arrested in the Spring of 2019 for unimaginable sexual abuse toward multiple children, yet local Philadelphia police released him onto the streets. ICE arrested this monster on November 27…AGAIN.
According to a press release from the agency, Philly police arrested Moran-Espinoza April 2 for “deviate sexual intercourse by forcible compulsion, unlawful contact with a minor-sexual offenses, statuary sexual assault, endangering the welfare of children-parent or guardian commits offense, corruption of minors, indecent assault-without the consent of other person, reckless endangerment of another person, rape by forceable compulsion, sexual abuse of children-photographing, videotaping, depicting on a computer or filming sexual acts, and aggravated indecent assault without consent.”
Mind you, the agency responsible for getting this animal off the street has been compared to Nazis by idiots like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and a host of other Democrats who would rather keep them free so they can continue to harm our children. (Related: Ocasio-Cortez falsely claims that U.S. border officials “inject drugs” into migrant kids, says NOTHING about inhumane issue of “child recycling.”)
In fact, Democrats’ hateful rhetoric towards ICE has been blamed for increasing attacks on ICE agents and police in general.
Still, thankfully, the men and women of ICE are continuing to do their jobs.
According to the agency’s press release, Moran was arrested again on May 9 by Philly PD for many of the same allegations. And in both cases, ICE’s Philadelphia Enforcement and Removal Operations filed a detainer request with the police department that was not honored, so cops “released this predator onto the streets” to allow Moran-Espinoza to remain free to continue targeting our most vulnerable citizens: children.
“We are seeing politicians put their political agendas above the safety of the citizens they serve,” said ICE Philadelphia Field Office Director Simona Flores-Lund. “The victims in this case are young children, whose lives are now forever changed. This monster was released not once, but twice, without notifying ICE. We are committed to strengthening our relationship with local law enforcement, as we want nothing more than to keep our communities safe.”
Democrats are aiding and abetting some of the most heinous criminal acts being committed against our children. There ought to be some way to have them arrested as accessories to the crimes.
