Here's a Snapshot of How Many Dangerous Criminal Illegal Aliens California Sanctuary Cities Have Released

The Department of Homeland Security has released its report on quarterly numbers of ICE detainers that were issued and ignored by California sanctuary cities between January 1 and March 31 of last year. Detainers are requests made by ICE and ask local law enforcement to hold violent criminal aliens until they can be properly transferred to federal custody. Hundreds were ignored, releasing dangerous individuals onto American streets. 

"The report will highlight cases where ICE issued a detainer, the detainer was declined, and the alien subsequently committed a crime after being released from state or local custody. Because ICE is often not alerted by uncooperative jurisdictions when a detainer has been declined, and because ICE may only learn of the detainer having been declined after an alien is arrested for a subsequent offense, the cases contained in this report are examples of a broader public safety issue and are not exhaustive," the report summary states.

"Cooperation between ICE and state and local law enforcement agencies is critical to the effort to identify and arrest removable aliens and defend the nation’s security," it continues. "Every day, ICE places detainers on individuals who the agency has probable cause to believe are aliens who are removable from the United States and are currently in federal, state, and local law enforcement agency custody."

Many of the criminal aliens who were released went on to commit additional felony crimes like driving under the influence, domestic violence, armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and more.

Here are a few examples

A 32-year-old citizen of Mexico, who was previously removed by ICE on June 3, 2009, was arrested on December 28, 2017, by the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office for Shoplifting, and booked into the Monterey County Jail.

On November 26, 2018, he was again arrested for Inflict Corporal Injury on Spouse, Violation of Probation, and Shoplifting, and booked into the Monterey County Jail.
