Editor’s Note – The Illegals Crime Report looks at crimes committed in the United States at the hands of those who shouldn’t be in the country.
Week of November 28 – December 4
Immigrant Choked Police Officer
A 41-year-old male was arrested after assaulting two police officers in Riverside. Law enforcement responded to a domestic disturbance after an unnamed witness claimed a man who appeared to be inebriated was throwing objects inside a residential home. When officers arrived, they found a man, later identified as Salvador Mario Martinez, who “became confrontational with the officers and a physical altercation occurred,” according to police.
The department stated that Martinez and the officers fell together to the ground during the struggle. The suspect then reportedly began “violently attacking” one of the officers, “choking her almost to the point of unconsciousness.” According to the police, it was necessary to use force on Martinez after repeated commands to cease the assault were ignored.
Two officers were taken to the hospital for treatment and later released. The female choke victim was sent home to recover. Martinez was taken into custody and booked for attempted murder of a peace officer, resisting arrest using violence, and false imprisonment. He is being held on $1 million bail.
Illegal Alien Committed Attempted Murder After Release
Arapahoe County, CO
The newly enacted Colorado sanctuary law allowed Cuban immigrant Osmani Garces-Ortiz, 37, to be set free without the authorities informing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of his release. He then allegedly committed attempted murder. Garces-Ortiz, who is in the United States illegally, had applied for permanent residency but was denied because of his criminal history.
On Oct. 25, ICE issued a detainer request to hold the suspect until the agency could determine whether it would pick him up and place him in immigration detention. Garces-Ortiz was already being held on charges of felony trespassing, felony possession of a controlled substance, violation of a bail bond, and violating a protection order. Local law enforcement said it didn’t see any legal reason in that particular state to keep the man incarcerated, and because of the sanctuary laws that protect illegal immigrants, police did not have to inform the federal agency of his release. The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department did notify ICE by email less than three hours before releasing the suspect, which may or may not have been enough time to organize agents to pick him up.
ICE officials said the sanctuary law and Garces-Ortiz’s release allowed him to commit other crimes, namely attempted murder, while he was out on bond.
North Carolinians for Immigration Reform and Enforcement (NCFIRE)
Each month, North Carolina organization NCFIRE posts a list of sexual crimes committed against children by illegal immigrants. The numbers are staggering – especially considering they’re just for one state. Just take a look at the last four months’ worth of statistics.
- 21 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 61 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 17 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 39 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 30 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 77 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 11 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 27 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
This barely represents a drop in the bucket of just how many children are being sexually abused nationwide by people who shouldn’t have been here, to begin with.
Sanctuary cities and states are only making it easier for predators to remain in the country as they prey on U.S. children.
