Donald Trump and Mexico’s culture of rape

Donald Trump

On June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced he’s a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination in the 2016 presidential election, he said this about the illegals whom the Obama administration is allowing to pour across our border:

“They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

For saying that there are drug-traffickers and rapists among illegal “immigrants,” Trump is reviled and condemned. Univision and NBC Universal have cut ties with Trump, refusing to air the “Miss Universe” pageant he partially owns; Macy’s has discontinued his clothing line.

Trump defended himself to CNN, saying that he got his information from an article in Fusion.net that, ironically, is owned by the same Univision that severed ties with Trump over his remark. The Fusion article by

Before they can reach the American Dream, many migrant women have to survive a Mexican nightmare. A staggering 80 percent of Central American girls and women crossing Mexico en route to the United States are raped along the way, according to directors of migrant shelters interviewed by Fusion.

That’s up from previous reports by non-profit organizations like Amnesty International that estimate the number at 60 percent.

“Women and girl migrants, especially those without legal status traveling in remote areas or on trains, are at heightened risk of sexual violence at the hands of criminal gangs, people traffickers, other migrants or corrupt officials,” the 2010 Amnesty International report stated. “…Many criminal gangs appear to use sexual violence as part of the “price” demanded of migrants. According to some experts, the prevalence of rape is such that people smugglers may require women to have a contraceptive injection prior to the journey as a precaution…”

…“I think almost all of the women are abused on the way north,” said lawyer Elvira Gordillo, who helps trafficked migrant women who get trafficked into prostitution.

But what we hear from NOW and U.S. feminists is the sound of silence.

It’s not just migrant women who illegally cross the U.S. border who are raped. An alarming percentage of girls and women in Mexico are raped — by their family members. 

From a Spanish-language article, “Evitan denunciar familiar violador (They avoid reporting a family rapist),” by Gomez Palacio, in the Mexican newspaper el Siglo, July 11, 2015 (h/t Vdare):

[R]apes are not reported because 70 percent of them are committed by close relatives such as fathers, brothers and uncles. So many go unreported because of shame and because women are not sufficiently empowered.

[Note: English translation of the above passage is by Google]

7 of every 10 rapes are incest rapes!

What Mexico has is a Culture of Rape.

Here are some other inconvenient facts about illegals that the MSM Ministry of Truth isn’t telling you (source: Breitbart):

  • In the state of Texas alone over the last few years, more than 2,000 illegal aliens were deported after committing sex crimes. Nearly 1,000 illegal aliens have been convicted of sex crimes against children.
  • Mexico and Colombia account for more than 90% of the U.S. heroin supply, and nearly all of it is smuggled into this country by Mexican traffickers.
  • According to the federal government’s crime statistics, of 78,022 primary offense cases in fiscal year 2013, 38.6% were illegal immigrant offenders.
  • Nearly half of federal crimes occur in just 5 of the United States’ 94 districts — along the Mexican border.
  • Of the 61,529 criminal cases initiated by federal prosecutors last fiscal year, more than 40%—or 24,746—were filed in court districts neighboring the Mexican border. Of those, nearly 22% (13,383) were drug related, 19.7% (12,123) were violent crimes.
  • More than 2,000 sex offenders are deported by ICE every year in Texas alone. Of the 862 alien sex offenders deported by the Texas-based offices, about 27% were convicted of sex offenses against children.
  • Nearly 1,000 Texas children are sexually assaulted by illegals over the last 3 years. These are convictions, which means the number of Texas kids sexually assaulted by illegals which are reported is even higher, which means the number of unreported pedophilia committed by illegals is higher still.
  • In 2013, the Obama Administration released 36,007 illegals with 88,000 criminal convictions. Those convictions included 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions, and 1,075 aggravated assault convictions. In January 2015, the DHS admitted to Sen. Grassley that 1,000 of the 36,007 released had gone on to commit more crime including: terroristic threats, lewd acts with a minor, various types of assault, DUI, robbery, hit-and-run, gang activity, rape, and child cruelty.
  • The number of criminal illegals deported has jumped from 7,000 in 2007 to 79,000 in 2010 — an increase of 72,000 in just 3 years! These criminals are not being stopped at the border. These criminals are being deported after making it across the border and committing tens of thousands of crimes.

John Nolte of Breitbart writes:

When it comes to taking the Second Amendment civil rights away from American citizens and legal immigrants, the media regularly exploit the dead with a cry of, “If it saves just one child!” But when it comes to stopping illegals from streaming over our porous border to sexually assault our children, the media not only doesn’t call for better border enforcement, the media covers these crimes up….

As far the rape-deniers in the media, there is no appealing to these godless liars. It is up to New Media and citizen journalists to get the facts out there.

Chattanooga Marine to Obama: “You have done more damage to this country than anyone”

A veteran of the United States Marines wrote a letter to Obama and videotaped it.

Here’s my transcription of his letter. Note that ellipses (…) represent words that are inaudible/indecipherable.

“Mr. Obama,

I’m not going to address you as President or the Commander In Chief. You don’t deserve it. I fail to see in any way that you have earned it.

I am a citizen of the United States of America. More importantly, I am born and raised and a current resident of Chattanooga, Tennessee…. I am proud to say that I’m a United States Marine…. I work six days a week at a blue collar job to provide for my wife and two sons, which doesn’t leave much time to do anything else. But, this is important, so I made the time.

July 16, 2015, three days ago, I lost four Marine brothers in a terrorist attack at Chattanooga. Yesterday, we lost one more military brother. The people of this nation and the people of Chattanooga in particular, are grieving the deaths of five fallen heroes.

The day of the attack, you delivered a statement and you don’t even have the decency to stand up. You talked on the Charleston issue standing up. You talked on the Boston Bombing standing up. Baltimore, standing. Mike Brown, standing. Greece, standing. Washington Naval Yard shooting, standing. Whitney frickin’ Houston, you stood up. Four Marines gunned down and killed, followed by a sailor . . . all on American soil, while on duty, but unarmed, defenseless, and you sit, slumped down in a chair and ramble through some poorly-scripted apology that seems as sincere as ‘If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.’

We have a saying in the Marine Corps at the end of your service. You’re told: ‘Don’t drop your pack.’ Mr. Obama, you never put your pack on.”

Marine vet

The Marine vet then stands up, moves away from the camera, and continues to address the camera while standing at attention (2:52 mark):

“Since this is no longer a private message, Mr. Obama, I’d like to take a minute to send my deepest and sincerest condolences to the families of those killed in the attacks. And not a day has gone by that I haven’t cried for my fallen brothers….”

He then names the five who were killed:

“United States Marine Corps, Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Sullivan, age 40, two tours in Iraq, earned two Purple Hearts…, United States Marine, Staff Sergeant David Wyatt, age 37…, United States Marine Corps, Sgt. Carson Holmquist, age 27, two tours in Afghanistan…, United States Marine Corps, Lance Corporal Skip Wells, age 21…. United States Navy, Petty Officer Randall Smith, age 26….”

Returning to sit before the camera (4:44 mark), the vet continues:

“Now, back to you, Mr. Obama.

It seems to me, and apparently I’m not alone, that you have done more damage to this country than anyone. A once proud nation that stood for liberty, justice, and freedom is now in chaos. These people are fighting each other; there’s rioting in the streets; history is being censored by political correctness. There’s actually debates about or not to destroy protected national monuments. Those monuments were made long before you 2008 entrance into our leadership. They explain the journey of Americans’ travels. They celebrate the men and women that gave so much, including their lives, and fought for our freedoms and liberties that you’re so quick to dissolve, which actually makes sense. You don’t want us remembering that people once rose up and fought for our freedoms from an over-controlling government. And while you were busy taking away those freedoms and liberties one by one, I never thought there’d be a day that Americans would fear paying their respects to fallen heroes whose only fault was showing up for work that day.

Kids aren’t required to stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance because it may offend them. Reality check. They are sitting down because God offends them. They are sitting down because you say it doesn’t matter.

Our government is picking and choosing for us whose history is worth remembering. Our Founding Fathers knew this day would come again. So they left us, the People, the power to overcome with knowledge as they once did. Our Founders came together and overthrew a government that thought that they were almighty. Mr. Obama, you are a tyrant and nothing more.

We have no trust in police and military training within the civilian population. Freedom of the press is disregarded and media is forbidden, so nobody can see what’s happening. It doesn’t work like that. The American people’s taxes pay for things that we don’t want and never asked for. We weren’t poor supporting our families and paying our bills. And yearly, you take more and more away from us. The United States, thanks to your benevolence, with our money, is estimated to owe 21.694 trillion dollars by the end of this fiscal year, September 3rd. That’s from usgovernmentdebt.us, if you want to look it up. When you came into office in 2008, we owed $9 trillion. So decisions made by you and your buddies, my sons and all the way to my great grandchildren will be born into debt, thank you.

You take weekly vacations and golf trips. All Americans have to work late years or try to die to retire. We’re forced to pay for outrageously expensive crap healthcare or face fines, yet you and your minions are exempt. Our veterans who fought for this country and follow your every order, need your help, and you’re letting them die because of paperwork, wait list, and gun-free zones. Our kids are eating cardboard that my dog wouldn’t eat, while yours are being catered to by fancy chefs and eat like royalty. You must be so proud of what this country has become under your rule, your majesty.

We the People have asked for answers and information, the truth, and for our voices to be heard. All attempts have been pushed to the side, swept under the rug, or diverted to some new controversy, while we’re supposed to be the most transparent administration!

No more. No more back room deals and secret documents, bills that can’t be read before voting up. We’re no longer asking for answers, we are demanding them. We are no longer asking you to take action, we demand it. We are no longer asking for your attention, we will be listened to. Remember this, if nothing else: You work for us, not the other way round. We see the smoke cast down by Washington. We demand the transparency that you promised us.

So, Mr. Obama, step up, and do what a president is supposed to do — strive to improve the lives of the American people and the military that defends you. Do what’s best for us, not your bottom line, not your personal agenda. Or get out of the way. Soon, the time will come when Americans — not just white, not just black, not brown, not just Christian or atheist, gay or straight — all of us, we will unite and we’ll take back our country and restore our liberties. So either step up or step down. You want our respect? Earn it. Because all you have right now is our resentment.

We the People demand a response to this video. And this time, let’s try standing up.

My family and I fully understand the consequences of making this video, but we feel that this needs to be said. It needs to be heard, and it needs to be addressed.

May God bless the United States of America, and prayers to Chattanooga, all the families and friends of those lost and all the victims associated. My family is here for you, and if there is anything that we can do, please let us know.”

Help make this go viral!

Wheaton College ends student health insurance over Obamacare

obamacare

Campus Reform: Wheaton College (Ill.) will no longer offer its students health care coverage after being denied a temporary exemption from the Obamacare contraceptive mandate.

“We regret that we were not able to provide earlier notice of this significant change, which affects roughly a quarter of our student body,” said vice president for student development Paul Chelsen in a July 22 statement. The college will not renew its student health insurance plan (SHIP) for the upcoming school year.

“The College is considering all of its options and will explore the possibility of again offering a SHIP in the future if circumstances allow us to do so in good conscience,” Chelsen said.

Additionally, Chelsen declared that the “College desires that every student have access to quality and affordable healthcare” but said an “unexpected notification” to comply with the contraceptive mandate “did not allow the College adequate time to make alternate plans to provide student coverage in line with its institutional convictions.”

As previously reported by Campus Reform, Judge Richard Posner, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, denied the college’s request for a preliminary injunction earlier this month. If it had been granted, the college would have been given a temporary religious exemption until its lawsuit was decided.

Wheaton College is currently suing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services because of religious objections to “emergency contraception” coverage as part of its student health plan. The private Christian liberal arts college holds that several act as abortifacients and being required to provide them would violate its religious convictions.

According to NBC 5, Chelsen said during a student information session that the school is attempting to protect its lawsuit against the Department of Human Services. The college said in a statement it would also assist students in “finding and signing up for a healthcare plan.”

Hillary Clinton’s private server contained information from 5 US spy agencies

difference

Yahoo: Classified emails that were stored on the private email server of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton contained information from five US intelligence agencies, McClatchy reports.

A congressional official with knowledge of the matter told McClatchy that intelligence officials who saw the five classified emails determined that they included information from five US spy agencies.

One classified email — now public and pertaining to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi — reportedly contained information from the National Security Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

McClatchy added, citing the official, that the “other four classified emails contained information from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence [DNI] and the CIA.”

Last week, government inspectors told the Justice Department in a letter that “secret government information may have been compromised in the unsecured system she used at her New York home during her tenure as secretary of state,” according to The Associated Press. The inspectors requested the department to look into the possible mishandling of classified information on the server from Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

hillary-clinton-winking-AP-640x480

Clinton, Democratic presidential front-runner in the 2016 election, has repeatedly said she broke no laws or rules by forgoing a standard government email account in favor of the private account. She has also said, as recently as last weekend, that she is “confident” she did not send or receive classified information by email. Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement last week that Clinton “followed appropriate practices in dealing with classified materials.”

But the inspector general of the intelligence community, in a letter to Congress, said a limited sampling of Clinton’s emails in question found at least four that contained classified information and should have been considered secret.

If Clinton had a technical security team to monitor her server for suspicious activity, Clinton could have had a system at least as secure at the State Department. If not, the information would have been vulnerable.

“The layers of security that would have to be employed to make a privately run exchange server as secure as something that is secured by the federal government would be pretty significant,” Timothy Ryan, a former FBI supervisory special agent who now manages cyber investigations for Kroll, told The Washington Post in March. “It’s not that it can’t be done. I just find it improbable.”

Clinton has said that the email system was established during Bill Clinton’s presidential administration (1993-2001), and her team has stated that “her family’s electronic communications was taken seriously from the onset.”

No matter the level of security the Clintons employed — which is still largely unknown — the fact that this information was found on her personal server highlights why officials in her position are supposed to use government emails.

“Even if Secretary Clinton or her aides didn’t run afoul of any criminal provisions, the fact that classified information was identified within the emails is exactly why use of private emails . . . is not supposed to be allowed,” said Bradley Moss, a Washington attorney who specializes in national security matters. “Both she and her team made a serious management mistake that no one should ever repeat.”

Broader questions about Clinton’s private email server have at times drawn attention away from the Democratic front-runner’s presidential campaign. The latest disclosure comes the same day as the release of a poll showing that a majority of voters nationwide do not consider her “honest and trustworthy.”

A separate poll released last week showed that she also trailed three strong Republican contenders — former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and US Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida — in theoretical general-election matchups in the key swing states of Colorado, Iowa, and Virginia.

NY cardinal who lives tax-free in $30M mansion scolds Americans for being against illegal immigration

In an op/ed, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan chastises Donald Trump and Americans who have problems with illegal immigration and illegals who commit heinous crimes of rape and murder, calling us “nativists.”

See:

The Oxford English Dictionary defines “nativism” as “The policy of protecting the interests of native-born or established inhabitants against those of immigrants.” In his op/ed, Dolan calls “nativism” an “ugly phenomenon,” and “nativists” as those “who see the unwashed, ignorant, bothersome brood as criminals and misfits who threaten ‘pure America,’ and are toxic to everything decent in the United States.”

Timothy Dolan

Dolan writes:

“[Nativism] flourished in our country during the 1840s and 1850s — actually becoming a popular political party, the Know-Nothings — and appeared again, in the 1870s, as the American Protective Association; in the 1920s, as the KKK; and during post-World War II America, as Protestants and Other Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

These nativists believed the immigrant to be dangerous, and that America was better off without them. All these poor degenerates did, according to the nativists, was to dilute the clean, virtuous, upright citizenry of God-fearing true Americans.”

Dolan continues, referring to “those happy days decades ago” when he taught American religious history to university students:

“I made the point to my students that nativism never really did disappear completely, but was a continual virulent strain in the American psyche, which would probably sadly show up again.

This point my students would not buy. ‘Father Dolan,’ they would say, ‘there’s no denying that this bigotry was there in our past. But, come on! Who could ever believe now that immigrants are dirty, drunken, irresponsible, dangerous threats to clean, white, Protestant, Anglo-Saxon America! Those days are gone.’

I wish I were in the college classroom again, so I could roll out my ‘Trump card’ to show the students that I was right. Nativism is alive, well — and apparently popular!

After slyly bashing Donald Trump — and by extension Trump’s supporters — with his “Trump card” reference, Dolan turns coy, insisting that “I am not in the business of telling people what candidates they should support or who deserves their vote.”

Then, this cardinal who lives in the lap of luxury (see below) goes all better-than-thou sanctimonious:

“But as a Catholic, I take seriously the Bible’s teaching that we are to welcome the stranger, one of the most frequently mentioned moral imperatives in both the Old and New Testament.”

illegal

Dolan, who once taught in a university, can’t seem to distinguish between LEGAL immigrants to the United States and ILLEGAL aliens who:

  • Disrespect this country’s laws and borders;
  • Make a mockery of millions of people across the world who actually respect our laws by applying to immigrate here;
  • Force taxpayers to pay for their welfare, medical care and education (k-12 and college!)

Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York leads the pack of Catholic archbishops and bishops who live in palatial mansions.

Dolan lives in a 15,000-square-foot mansion (below) on Madison Avenue in in one of the priciest corridors of Manhattan. The mansion reportedly is filled with thick red carpets and priceless antiques, and is estimated to be worth at least $30 million. Dolan shares the mansion with three other priests. (See “Pope Francis calls again for wealth redistribution, while U.S. archbishops live in palatial homes”)

archbishop homes

Cardinal Dolan lives here

Just four men live in a swanky mansion of 15 thousand sq. feet!

Hey, Dolan, let’s see you “take seriously the Bible’s teaching that we are to welcome the stranger” by sharing those 15,000 sq. ft. with illegal “immigrants”.

I dare you.

This is the same Archbishop Timothy Dolan who led this year’s New York St. Patrick’s Day parade as its Grand Marshal, despite the participation of a homosexual activist group, Out@NBCUniversal, and despite the parade’s rejection of an application from the pro-life adoption group Children First Foundation.

Wayne Allyn Root: GOP is scared to death of Donald Trump

Wayne Allyn Root, “Donald Trump’s Mouth Is a Nuclear Weapon,” The Blaze, July 27, 2015

(Note: Words in italics colored green are mine. -Éowyn)

The biased, clueless liberal mainstream media are in shock and awe. They have no idea why so many Americans love Donald Trump. But the answer is so simple and clear. Just ask any conservative.

Donald Trump is a breath of fresh air. Donald Trump is the answer to what ails America – simply because he kills two birds with one stone.

America has two big problems. America is under attack by a vicious one-two combination. America has been ruined by two parties. And Donald Trump’s mouth solves both problems. Donald Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon.

Democrats clearly hate American exceptionalism, capitalism, entrepreneurship, and Judeo-Christian values. They hate business owners (see “You didn’t build that”) and appear to blame American patriotism, white people, business owners and Christians for every problem in the world today.

The Democrat Party is riddled with socialists, Marxists and communists hell bent on “fundamentally changing America.”

The Democrat Party is filled with frauds (see President Barack Obama, Jonathan Gruber and the lies used to sell Obamacare); traitors (see Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry and the new Iran nuclear treaty); thieves and conmen (see the scandal involving $2 billion donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state); reckless wasters of taxpayer money (see Obama’s Kenya trip that cost us over $50 million dollars for one day in a country that offers America NOTHING ); and outright criminals (see Hillary’s upcoming criminal investigation and Obama’s use of the IRS to target, persecute and even attempt to imprison political opponents and critics).

But the GOP may be worse.

If there’s anything worse than evil, it’s cowardice in the face of evil. The GOP leadership is riddled with cowards, wimps and naïve, feckless, country club powder puffs who have no clue how to fight back against the Democrats ruining America and destroying our children’s future with debt. Yes, Democrats are the bad guys. But Republicans are standing by helplessly, scared and petrified, allowing it to happen.

John Boehner cries againRepublican House Speaker John Boehner cries, again, on Golf Channel, to be aired Aug. 3, 2015. (H/t FOTM’s Anon)

_____________________

I suspect many of the Republican leaders in Washington, D.C. are either being bribed or blackmailed. Exhibit A is Supreme Court Justice Roberts, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. These guys are all either bought and paid for; or someone is holding a gun to their heads (along with a photo of them in bed doing something shocking). Don’t believe me? See the criminal case against former Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert. They are all doing something morally wrong, or breaking some law. And Obama’s partners in the National Security Administration and IRS are always watching. America is being lost because the GOP is bringing knives to a gunfight.

Note: For speculations on Chief Justice Roberts being blackmailed, click here.

The only way to save America is to bring a nuclear weapon to a gun fight. And Donald Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon.

It’s time to stop being “nice.” “Nice” is okay for playing golf with Muffy at the country club. But “nice” doesn’t work in politics. “Nice” guys finish last in politics. “Nice” is getting our country ruined. “Nice” is killing middle class jobs. “Nice” is wiping out middle class incomes. “Nice” has led to negative GDP growth. “Nice” has led to more businesses closing than opening each day for the first time in America’s history. “Nice” has left the border wide open to an illegal alien invasion, the bankruptcy of America and a terrorist attack like Sept. 11, 2001.

“Nice” has led to disaster and disgrace all over the globe. The world no longer has any respect for, or fear of America. We are in decline and disarray. We are headed for collapse and disaster.

Into this crisis steps “the nuclear mouth” Donald Trump. He isn’t afraid to put America first. He isn’t afraid to tell the truth. He isn’t afraid of what the media thinks. He isn’t afraid of being called a “racist” for pointing out how Obama has damaged and destroyed America. He isn’t afraid to question Obama’s very mysterious, questionable and troubling past – much of it sealed away in darkness.

Trump isn’t afraid to fight like our future is on the line because he understands it is. He isn’t afraid to offend. He isn’t afraid to expose the cowards and frauds in his own GOP leadership for what they are. He refuses to be “politically correct” when he sees corruption and idiocy. He won’t back down or apologize for telling the truth.

Of course the evil Democrats, corrupt and cowardly GOP leadership, and biased mainstream media hate him. They are all rooting for another Mitt Romney. Let’s compare Mitt to Donald Trump:

They are both rich white guys. Both famous successful businessmen. Both Republican presidential candidates past and present. That’s where the similarity ends.

Mitt Romney is a very nice guy. Mitt has manners. Mitt would never offend anyone. Mitt let the media run roughshod over him. Mitt would never say something rude or offensive about Obama or Hillary. Mitt would never accuse them of crimes against the American people. Mitt would never prosecute Obama or Hillary if he was elected.

And one other difference: Mitt lost.

It’s no coincidence that Mitt lost. The last thing we need now is “nice.” It’s also no coincidence that the people in power (evil Democrats, the corrupt GOP leadership, and the mainstream media) all want another Mitt Romney. They want the status quo. They want to keep the bribes and blackmail coming. They don’t want anyone to upset the apple cart.

They are scared to death of Donald Trump, who doesn’t play by traditional rules or etiquette. They are scared to death of a guy who can’t be bribed. They are scared to death of a guy who speaks about the hopes, dreams and fears of middle class Americans. They are scared to death of a street fighter. They are scared to death of a candidate who is as relentless for saving America…as Obama is for destroying America. Donald Trump understands what I call, “The Power of Relentless.”

Mostly, they are scared to death of Trump’s mouth. The kind of mouth that could stir up a citizen revolution and topple “business as usual” in Washington, D.C.

Yes Donald Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon. And that’s precisely why we love him.

Bombs away!

Illegal immigrant ordered freed by feds now suspected of murder in Ohio

obama-finger

Fox News: An illegal immigrant suspected of murdering one woman, wounding another and attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl was released earlier this month by Ohio sheriff’s deputies after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told them not to hold him, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.

Illegal Razo/AP Photo

Illegal Razo/AP Photo

Juan Emmanuel Razo, 35, was arrested Monday after a shootout with police following a crime spree police say began with the attempted rape of a girl in a park in Painesville, about 30 miles northeast of Cleveland. He later shot a woman in front of her children and murdered a 60-year-old woman in nearby Concord Township, according to police. While Razo is being held on $10 million bond, authorities are trying to explain why he was allowed to remain in the U.S. illegally after local authorities questioned him just three weeks ago.

“I have somebody who we don’t know who he is, why he is in this country, why he is here illegally and why he allegedly committed a murder,” Painesville Municipal Court Judge Michael Cicconetti thundered at Razo’s arraignment, noting the suspect has no green card, birth certificate or driver’s license.  “I can’t set a bond high enough,” he continued. “How in the hell do I even know it’s him?”

Cicconetti later told Fox News he did not understand how federal authorities could have ordered Razo released on July 7 when local deputies questioned him and contacted Border Protection officials, given that no one could even verify his identity.

“If you are stopped, at that point, whether it be by law enforcement or you make your first court appearance, at that point we have to have some kind of identifier on him,” he said.

Deputies who questioned Razo say Border Protection officials told them Razo is from Mexico and in the U.S. illegally, but said they would not pick him up for deportation. Lake County Sheriff Dan Dunlap said at a news conference that deputies released Razo because he hadn’t committed a crime at that point.

A Border Protection spokesman did not return telephone messages seeking comment. A spokesman for U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement said in an email that ICE was closely monitoring the case. The email identified Razo as Juan Emmanuel Razo-Ramirez.

A detective said during the arraignment that Razo has confessed to the deadly, one-day crime spree in the quiet Lake Erie town. Police began seeking Razo late Monday morning after the girl described him to police and said he had tried to rape her. Hours later, he allegedly shot a 40-year-old woman in the arm as she walked with her two children along a bike path and an hour after that, a man told park rangers he’d found his wife, 60-year-old Margaret Kostelnik, shot to death in their home near the bike path.

Victim Margaret Kostelnik

Victim Margaret Kostelnik

The Lake County coroner said Kostelnik, who was an assistant to the mayor in nearby Willoughby, was shot multiple times. “People always  say, ‘Oh, she’s the nicest person in the world,’” Willoughby Mayor David Anderson told FoxNews.com. “But Margaret Kostelnik is the nicest person you could ever meet.”

Anderson said he worked with Kostelnik for the 24 years he served as mayor and that her family is deeply entrenched in the 23,000-person community. Her husband has worked as the town’s cemetery sexton for the past 25 years. “She genuinely cared,” Anderson said.

A public defender entered a not guilty plea for Razo on Tuesday.

Tension between local and federal law enforcement agencies over how to handle illegal immigrants was brought to the forefront after the killing of Kathryn Steinle July 1 on a San Francisco pier. The 32-year-old was allegedly shot by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez who had been deported five times and had a felony record. 

Lopez-Sanchez has said he came to San Francisco because he knew local police would not turn him over for deportation because of the city’s sanctuary policy, which has caused Republicans to blame these policies adopted by liberal enclaves nationwide.

Lopez-Sanchez was freed in March on an old marijuana charge even though Immigration and Customs Enforcement had filed a detainer request with San Francisco law enforcement. The city’s sheriff’s department was criticized for releasing Lopez-Sanchez and not notifying federal immigration authorities.
