Sanctuary Colorado: Inmate wanted by ICE freed on bail and arrested weeks later for attempted murder

Gov. Jared Polis (l)

In May this year, Colorado Governor Jared Polis (demorat) gave illegal aliens a free pass by signing HB 1124 which prohibits law enforcement from honoring ICE detainers. Read about all the protections illegal aliens have from the feds here.

Because of Colorado’s desire to protect criminal illegal aliens, an inmate from Cuba who was wanted by ICE was released on bail in late October, only to be arrested weeks later on attempted murder charges.

Excerpts from a USA Today story:

But local law enforcement say the new law had little effect on their handling of the case and federal officials had been notified about the inmate’s release, giving ICE the chance to take custody of a suspect who the agency claims is in the country illegally.

The Colorado law in question was enacted in May and bars law enforcement officials in the state from holding a person based only on a request from ICE — commonly called an immigration detainer. It’s a practice that ICE says aids federal immigration enforcement and benefits public safety, but detainers are controversial and have been challenged as unconstitutional.

Detainer requests typically ask law enforcement agencies to give ICE at least 48 hours’ notice before a suspected immigrant is released from a jail — or to hold the person for up to 48 hours after they would normally be released.

In its latest criticism, ICE says law enforcement in Colorado followed the state’s law and ignored a federal detainer on an inmate, releasing him on bond as planned despite ICE’s request to hold him longer.

That inmate was soon allegedly involved in a violent crime, which ICE believes could have been prevented had Colorado law allowed local law enforcement to honor immigration detainers.

Local officials, however, say it has been a longstanding policy to not honor immigration detainers and the new law did not impact this case. They also say federal immigration officials were told of the inmate’s imminent release two-and-a-half hours before he was freed.

The case involves Osmani Garces-Ortiz — 37, who emigrated from Cuba. Garces-Ortiz was in custody in late October at the Arapahoe County Jail, located about 15 miles southeast of Denver on several charges including drug possession and criminal trespassing, according to a release from ICE.

Garces-Ortiz was freed on bond four days after ICE placed a detainer on him, ICE says.”

..”but detainers are controversial and have been challenged as unconstitutional. ” Oh no, not controversial. Can’t have that. And constitutional protections only extend to American citizens, not illegals. Not that it matters to Queen Jared and his husband. Revolting. I can’t believe Coloradans are this misguided. But this trash is what you get when you don’t vote

Why are WE paying incompetent losers in the DOJ? Any first year law student should be able to shut down this GARBAGE . The “DOJ” should have ended the sanctuary crap on day one. File the first criminal AND civil lawsuits, freeze the assets of of the “sanctuarians” and the rest would change their tune. Forfeit ALL of Gov. Newsom’s assets to pay damages to the family of that murdered woman ….and jail him as an ACCESSORY and an ACCOMPLICE. Federal Code 8, section 1324. “It is unlawful to transport, hire or house an illegal alien…under penalty of $2,000 fine… Read more »

I cannot disagree with anything you said here. So the only real question is why isn’t the DOJ shutting this down. The legality and constitutionality of doing so cannot be questioned. The only answer is that the America-hating swamp creatures are so deeply entrenched that they prevent it via bureaucratic resistance. They won’t be removed overnight or with the stroke of a pen. Which leaves prayer as our recourse
