Illegal alien charged in Tukwila murder had been on ICE radar for months

This illegal alien had previously been deported four times and now sits in King County Regional Justice Center on a $2M bail.  Tukwila is in King County, which known for protecting illegals.

From KOMO TV: A Tukwila man accused of killing his cousin had been on the radar of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement for months.

Rosalio Ramos-Ramos, 37, was being sought by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) late last year and was almost turned over when an apparent lack of communication between police and Harborview Medical Center resulted in his discharge from the Seattle trauma hospital, Kent police said.

Chief Ken Thomas said police arrested Ramos-Ramos in October after he reported being involved in a sexual assault. Officers did not find any evidence of an assault, but found a drug pipe and a small amount of methamphetamine on Ramos-Ramos. They booked him into the Kent Jail in connection with misdemeanor drug possession, Thomas said.

Once at the jail Ramos-Ramos told officers he wanted to die then started fighting with corrections staff. Ramos-Ramos he said was taken to a nearby hospital then to Harborview for a head injury, according to Thomas.

While Ramos-Ramos was at Harborview police learned his identity. Thomas said officers were soon contacted by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). “We initially did not reach out to ICE,” Thomas said. “They looked out at the booking log, saw he was in custody and they reached out to us.”

According to ICE, hospitals are “sensitive locations,” places they don’t take enforcement action unless exigent circumstances exist.

Jorge Baron, executive director of the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, says he’s seen ICE take people into custody at hospitals. “The general policy of ICE about the fact there are some situations and locations where they’re generally not going to make arrests, but there are exceptions to that policy,” Baron said.

Kent police said they called Harborview daily to keep tabs on Ramos Ramos, but he was released without them knowing.

An ICE spokeswoman told KOMO over the phone Friday that the agency didn’t have information on the Tukwila man. When asked about why ICE didn’t put an officer at the hospital to watch over Ramos Ramos, she questioned why Kent police didn’t do the same.

Thomas told KOMO he has a small department and can’t take an officer off the streets for several days to watch over a man accused of committing misdemeanor crimes in his city. He said they promised to keep tabs on Ramos Ramos on behalf of ICE by calling the hospital. He said they planned to pick the man up once he was discharged and turn him over to the feds.

“I believe this person needed to be off the streets. He had been deported four times prior, he is a convicted felon and he’s a very violent person,” Thomas told KOMO during an interview on Thursday.

Harborview, in a statement, said they had no duty to give information to police over the phone. “When we care for patients who are incarcerated or under the custody of law enforcement, it is the role of the law enforcement agency to guard the patient while they are hospitalized. This particular patient was not under guard when he was released from the medical center last fall after five days of hospitalization. We also follow federal privacy laws that dictate the amount and type of patient medical information that we can release.”

King County Senior Deputy Prosecutor Scott O’Toole said in the second-degree murder charges he filed against Ramos-Ramos that the man has multiple aliases and birthdates. He told KOMO that the man’s green card appears to be fraudulent.

    • Alma . . . . God Bless you for bringing up “the enemy within our neighborhoods . . . as far as I can see the ACLU is complicit in fostering this on-going, ever increasing amount of criminality WE THE PEOPLE have to contend with! That is in addition to the criminal alien immigrants.

  2. It kinda surprises me that the Liberals aren’t going full tilt to see that these illegals who kill are caught and removed from the US. Seems to me that allowing these killers to run wild in the US is NOT working for them in their efforts to convince us to welcome the illegals with open arms and wallets. If they’d put some effort into making the violent offenders among them unable to gain entry to the US under ANY circumstances that MIGHT soothe some raw feelings about the illegals…..
    I think Trump is right when he says the Mex. Government is “sponsoring” these illegals’ entry into the US,and I think he’s also right that they’re sending their “dregs of society” to undermine our economy. (and bolster theirs)

    • The are!! I’ve said it several times. I even saw a show on it. They send the Border Patrol over there once in a while to check on this. They have way stations for them to rest before making the crossing and the cops are watching while they do it. They feed them for free.

      • I think America has had ENOUGH of this coddling the illegals. Call me whatever you choose,but I believe these illegals should be put on a LEAD DIET as soon as they touch American soil. Easily 99% effective. If anyone can show me another,less lethal method of Border Control with that degree of success,I’m listening.

    • Don’t you find it strange that nobody ever talks about Mexico’s culpability in this? We are supposed to be “trade partners” with them. After all, Slick Willy set it up, what could go wrong?

      Anyway, if we did what we talk about doing and just said, “hey, go home. Sorry but we’ve got our own to take care of”. They wouldn’t be coming in the first place. Look at that bunch of “Dreamers” the other day that “threatened” to go home to Mexico. Is that a threat? Go for it.

  3. So the city is refusing to protect its citizens from criminals. It’s hard for me to believe that they’re just sitting there letting this happen. We do have federal marshals and they can come and arrest people, starting with the officials who ordered this.

    • lophatt . . . . As far as I am concerned, this is all a ridiculous dust-up. The minute this fool started being combative, whatever is left of him after you get him under control to take to a medical facility . . . . should be wearing a GPS ankle monitor slapped on his leg, and it doesn’t come off until an ICE agent comes to remove it. This is very easily done, and this technology should be used in these instances.

      I do hope that the “cousin he murdered” was also an illegal alien! I am sure that many will think I am beyond cruel to indicate such a wish, but really . . . .

      • I hear ya’. I linked to a story the other day where NYC had refused approx. 1,500 requests from ICE. That may make these snowflakes seem cool with their comrades and keep their bosses happy but what about everyone who has to live with the consequences?

        Besides, every one of these useless mutts that took an oath to uphold the law and vow to ignore it should be behind bars. The funding is a no-brainer. If they want federal funds they’d better appoint officials that abide by the law.

        To me this is so basic its embarrassing. Why is nobody talking about it? Just go ahead and try that approach as a private citizen. “I have decided not to cooperate with your tax scam. From here on out I live free”.

        How long do you think I’d last? We should pool our money, go to Pelosi and say “we’ve opened a community house for Amazonian cannibals in your neighborhood”. These people are the enemy.

  6. Build the wall already and start enforcing laws that are already on the books. If these cities want these criminals round them all up and deposit them in each city that makes the clam sanctuary cities. Then if they let them out fine the city `10 million per person they let out. Once the money is gone they will be gone. When will our government do its job. Vote and fire the idiots who keep allowing this go on.

    • I like the idea,but since virtually all “Sanctuary Cities” are already broke,fining them would be like suing a “bag lady”.
      I’d be more inclined to go with, “Build the Wall,beef up the border security,get the US Marshals and go to each Sanctuary State or City and ARREST every official who signed off on the “Sanctuary Policy” for (at LEAST) Sedition-walk each of ’em out of their office in cuffs and leg-chains. I HONESTLY don’t see how they figure they have a RIGHT to violate Federal Immigration Law.

  7. Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report

    March 8, 2018


    It has been an interesting second full week in the month of March when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

    This week we take a look at for your radio listeners at an illegal alien who while in Washington allegedly murdered a resident of the state.

    A February 14, 2018 viewing of the King County Jail website inmate lockup service indicated that Rosalio Ramos-Ramos (Current booking # 218001176), age 37, had been charged with one count of Homicide INV and one count of Murder Two, moreover, he has been incarcerated at the jail since January 12, 2018.

    The charges against Rosalio Ramos-Ramos are related to him allegedly stabbing and decapitating his cousin Pedro Venegas-Ramos.

    Wanting to know the actual current immigration status of Rosalio Ramos-Ramos, I contacted via e-mail on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Public Affairs Officer / Spokesperson Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe.

    On the afternoon of Friday, February 23rd, here is what ICE Public Affairs Officer/Spokesperson Pitts O’Keefe had to say via e-mail in response to my inquiry for information on Rosalio Ramos-Ramos:

    “Here is our statement:

    “Chalio Ramos, a five-time previously deported Honduran citizen, was arrested by King County Jan. 11 for 2nd degree murder charges. On Jan. 23, deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) lodged a detainer with the King County Jail. ICE previously lodged a detainer on Ramos with the Kent Police Department Oct. 10, 2017. However, he was released from custody Oct. 12, 2017, without affording ICE the ability to take custody.” – Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe

    Analysis of the preceding information:

    Five time deported Honduran national Chalio Ramos (aka Rosalio Ramos-Ramos) on October 10, 2017 had been in local law enforcement custody, that being the Kent Police Department, so U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) placed an ICE detainer on him.

    On October 12, 2017 Chalio Ramos was released from local law enforcement custody without law enforcement contacting ICE agents so they could take Ramos into custody.

    Approximately three months after Chalio Ramos’s release by local law enforcement, on January 11, 2018 Ramos was arrested for the alleged murder and dismemberment of his cousin Pedro Venegas-Ramos.

    An important fact, the U.S. Department of Justice has identified King County, Washington, where the city of Kent is located, as possibly unlawfully restricting information sharing by its law enforcement officers with federal immigration authorities.

    Lars, the second full week of March and another criminal alien report for Lars Larson Show KXL FM 101.1 Pacific Northwest radio listeners.
