Illegal immigration is more than just a talking point for politicians looking to win or stay in office. The left is determined to make us an open border country, allowing everyone in, regardless of criminal background. That’s why it’s important to demonstrate the serious crimes committed by so many illegal immigrants in this weekly report. This is not an analysis, but rather a highlight of the more serious offenses committed by these aliens. While there may have been many more – hundreds even – arrests of illegal aliens for simple infractions, here we concentrate only on the most dangerous.
Week of March 1-7
Child Raped in Sanctuary City
States whose policy makers choose to become safe havens for illegal aliens are putting their constituents in danger, and this case from Philadelphia is a prime example. In February, Juan Ramon-Vasquez of Honduras was convicted and sentenced to prison for repeatedly raping a child. A tragedy that likely would not had happened if the city had not chosen to adopt sanctuary status and refuse to help protect its citizens from illegal aliens with a criminal history.
In 2009, Ramon-Vasquez was deported, but in 2014, he was found to be in the country once again. It is not known how long he had been in the states before being discovered. At that time, he was in the custody of the Philadelphia Department of Prisons.
Philadelphia is a sanctuary city and its officials refused to cooperate with ICE and turn the man over to the officers. Instead, they released him, and Ramon-Vasquez went on to repeatedly rape an innocent child.
“The facts of this case illustrate all too well the direct threat to public safety caused by the City of Philadelphia’s sanctuary city policies,” said U.S. Attorney McSwain in a press release. “After the City let this criminal loose on the streets of Philadelphia, Ramon-Vasquez repeatedly raped an innocent child. If the ICE detainer had been honored by local law enforcement, this crime never would have happened, and the victim would have been spared horrendous physical and mental trauma. Criminals like Ramon-Vasquez take note: my Office will do everything in its power to find you, to protect our community, and to seek justice for your victims. Unlike the Philadelphia government, we are not on your side.”
How many more innocent people are going to be hurt because liberals feel justified in putting us all in danger?
It is crucial to make the public aware of the seriousness of criminal aliens and the cities and states that choose to shield them. Innocents are hurt on a daily basis, and many, such as this case, could have been prevented if only the elected officials – the ones chosen to protect their constituents – cared enough about the legal residents to put their safety and interests first. Instead, each week we see atrocious crimes committed against children – murder, rape, and a whole host of others. When will the bleeding heart liberals see the truth and fight for their people instead of against them?
