A 46-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador was arrested and charged with rape in Montgomery County, Maryland, making him the fifth illegal immigrant to be arrested for sexual assault in that county within the last month.
Nelson Reyes-Medrano is facing a rape indictment alleging that he climbed into the bed of a 16-year-old girl and raped her while pointing a knife, according to county police report.
Reyes-Medrano held a knife to the young girl’s throat and ordered her to undress. When the victim did not do so quickly enough, he tore off her clothes and proceeded to rape her, the police report says.
“Nelson Reyes-Medrano is accused of crawling into bed with a 16yo Germantown, Md. girl as she napped. The 46yo proceeded to rape the teen at knifepoint, police say. This is the fifth undocumented immigrant arrested on rape charges in Montgomery County, Md. in the last month,” WABC TV reporter Kevin Lewis wrote.
Although sanctuary city defenders, including the Democrats and their news media echo chamber repeatedly declare that their policy doesn’t harm public safety, the latest report by President Donald Trump’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) appears to disprove the “fake news” stories. The report reveals the counties and city law enforcement agencies that are releasing illegal aliens back onto American streets even when those illegal aliens have allegedly committed serious and violent crimes.
A declined detainer request occurs when jurisdictions choose to willfully decline ICE detainers or requests for notification and release criminals back into the community. “When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release a criminal alien onto the streets, they have declined an ICE detainer,” says the website for ICE.
According to the ICE figures, throughout the week of Feb. 4-10, ICE had discovered 47 declined detainer requests from around 30 different jurisdictions across the country, and many of the release requests were for criminals with records such as aggravated assault, sexual assault, and domestic violence.
The City of New York has the highest number of jurisdictions on the list releasing illegal criminals, reporting 12 different instances of offenders being allowed to roam free in the streets as opposed to being detained. The notable criminal activity of the illegal immigrants they declined to detain included violent and major crimes like assault and sexual assault.
Virginia had half the number of declined requests for detainees with notable criminal activities, with six declined detainer requests documented in the state. The state of Washington released five illegal immigrants during the week covered by the report. Both Virginia and Washington released illegal immigrants who had committed serious crimes like driving while intoxicated and assault.
One detainee released in Washington had been convicted of possessing a serious amount of cocaine. As originally reported by The Daily Caller, during the week of Feb. 4-10, there were 10 jurisdictions that, ICE said, “do not comply on a regular basis” who received a total of 540 detainer requests. The non-complying jurisdictions were listed as:
- Los Angeles, California
- New York, New York
- Kern County, California
- Clark County, Nevada
- San Diego, California
- Orange County, California
- San Bernardino, California
- Santa Barbara, California
- Travis County, Texas
- King County, Washington
“Currently, uncooperative jurisdictions prevent ICE from knowing when an alien has been released from custody,” the report noted. “Consequently, active detainers exist for aliens who are no longer incarcerated. The field offices are in the process of reviewing outstanding active ICE detainers, potentially affecting the list of jurisdictions listed in future reporting periods.”
During the week of Feb. 4-10, ICE issued a total of 2,285 detainer requests nationwide.
