Editor’s Note – The Illegals Crime Report looks at crimes reported in the United States at the hands of those listed as illegal or undocumented.
Week of May 8– May 14
Last week’s Illegals Crime Report was filled with accounts of aliens committing rape and child molestation. Unfortunately, that is also the same tragic story for this episode. The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a rise in child and domestic abuse, which also seems to have spiked among the illegal immigrant population as well. Sanctuary cities and states provide a safe haven for criminals who are in the country illegally, and their officers of law are forbidden from working with federal agents to get these people out of our neighborhoods. Instead of listing the many crimes against children over the past seven days, this issue will focus on one illegal immigrant who is a repeated sex offender, has been deported twice already, whom officials released six times despite his record and ICE detainers.
Convicted Sex Offender Repeatedly Released
San Francisco, CA
Kristian Jonas Gamez Trejo is a 25-year-old male and citizen of Honduras. An “ICE Most Wanted” criminal alien, he had already been convicted of felony sex with a minor when he was recently apprehended on April 28. But getting to that arrest was a game of cat and mouse as local authorities kept releasing the criminal despite the fact that ICE served several detainers on him.
Gamez illegally entered the United States some time before April 2014. In April 2015, he was arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol and sent back to his Honduran homeland in June 2015. Some time later that year, he made another illegal entry into the U.S. and was again arrested by patrol agents. By December of that year, he had once again been removed to Honduras. The following year, he illegally entered the states for a third time.
Local authorities arrested Gamez in August 2016 on an April 28, 2014 arrest warrant for felony sex with a minor. ICE then requested that the San Francisco County Jail allow for voluntary transfer of the suspect, which was ignored. Gamez was released onto the public. In Nov. 2016, he was convicted of the felony sex with a minor charge and was sentenced to 87 days in jail and five years of probation.
In 2017, Gamez was arrested four times on local charges. ICE issued multiple detainers to the S.F. jail, but all were refused and the alien was released each time. On April 12, 2019, the illegal immigrant was arrested on domestic violence charges. ICE immediately issued a detainer, this time with the Sonoma County Main Jail. At the same time, San Francisco County issued its own warrant for probation violation from Gamez’s felony sex with a minor conviction. Sonoma transferred him to San Francisco on May 17, and the following day ICE issued another detainer with the S.F. jail.
On Oct. 1, 2019, Gamez was convicted of misdemeanor battery charges and was given 180 days in jail. Once his sentence had been served, San Francisco County again released him into the community on Feb. 13, 2020: This was the sixth time the jail had released this criminal alien, ignoring ICE detainers.
To say ICE officials are frustrated with sanctuary cities would be the understatement of the year. “Once again, I am waiting for San Francisco officials to tell me how not turning over Mr. Gamez made our community safer,” admonished ICE San Francisco Field Office Director David Jennings. He continued:
“San Franciscans deserve better. There is no reason this convicted child predator should have been turned loose into our community. Even California’s misguided SB54 sanctuary policy allows local authorities to turn over to ICE any criminal aliens convicted of felony crimes of sexual exploitation or crimes endangering children.”
