Sanctuary California: Illegal alien identified as San Francisco’s “ride-share rapist”

Illegal Vilchez Lazo: Free to roam and rape in sanctuary California/SFPD photo

From Fox News: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Monday blasted San Francisco over its sanctuary policy that “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community” by pointing to an illegal immigrant alien charged in connection to the rapes of four women, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 36, is a citizen of Peru and “present in the U.S.,” the report said. He was arrested last week after police said they came across a man who fit the description of the assailant. Police said they took a DNA sample and found a link to four rapes.

Vilchez Lazo has been dubbed the “ride-share rapist,” because he would allegedly drive his car around clubs in the city and pose as a driver. The New York Times, citing authorities, reported that he even had a sticker on his car to indicate he was working for a company.

Vilchez Lazo allegedly committed at least four rapes, one in 2013 and three this year, with the most recent attack in June. Commander Greg McEachren says he often waited outside bars late at night, then drove to other locations.

He reportedly worked for Lyft at the time, but the company told the paper that there is no indication that the alleged attacks occurred while he was working for them. A spokeswoman said he was “deactivated” after word of the allegations.

ICE officials reportedly “lodged a detainer” for Lazo but noted in a statement that the city’s jail “does not honor” these detainers or “notify ICE about the impending release of aliens in custody.”

The Trump administration says sanctuary jurisdictions allow dangerous criminals back on the street. San Francisco and other so-called sanctuary cities say turning local police into immigration officers erodes the trust needed to get people to report crime.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Vilchez Lazo was being held at the San Francisco Jail on $4.2 million bail. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.

Vilchez Lazo faces life in prison if convicted.

ICE arrests 37 illegal aliens in Middlesex, NJ who were released by local jail after they ignored detainer requests

deport t-shirt

Local sanctuary-loving progressives are not honoring ICE detainers and are releasing criminals back into their communities. Wait until you read the details regarding some of the crimes these illegal aliens committed and how the local county did not comply with ICE detainer requests. It will make your blood boil.

This is why we need ICE.

Press release from ICE Enforcement and Removal, dated 7/16/2018:

NEWARK, N.J. — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Newark Field Office arrested 37 individuals during a five-day operation that concluded Friday, as part of the agency’s ongoing public safety efforts. The operation targeted criminal aliens who were previously incarcerated at the Middlesex County Jail (MCJ), and who were subsequently released to the community by MCJ, without honoring the ICE detainer or advising ICE of their release. The operation also targeted other criminal aliens residing in Middlesex County.

Of those arrested, 16 subjects had been previously released by MCJ without honoring the ICE detainer and 78% had prior criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.

“ERO New Jersey will continue to enforce ICE’s commitment to public safety,” said Ruben Perez, acting Field Office Director of ERO in Newark. “Middlesex county, which aspires to be a ‘sanctuary county’ by protecting criminal aliens, in the process assists criminals in undermining federal law, and creates a dangerous environment in the community. It also overburdens local law enforcement. ICE will continue to execute its mission in such communities.”

The individuals arrested as part of the operation were nationals of Brazil, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Ivory Coast, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, and Turkey.

These individuals range from 21 to 68 years old and all were previously arrested or convicted of a variety of offenses.

Those arrested will remain in ICE custody pending removal or immigration proceedings.

ICE is focused on removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws, including those who illegally re-entered the country after being removed, and immigration fugitives ordered removed by federal immigration judges.

For the first two quarters of Fiscal Year 2018, ICE arrests comprise over 66 percent convicted criminals. Of the remaining individuals not convicted of a crime, approximately 23 percent have either been charged with a crime, are immigration fugitives, or have been removed from the United States and illegally re-entered, reflecting the agency’s continued prioritization of its limited enforcement resources on aliens who pose threats to national security, public safety and border security.

Illegal alien who killed FBI agent and fire marshal while driving in an “imprudent” manner receives just a $280 fine

Sander Cohen (l) and Carlos Wolf (r)/Fox 5 DC photo

In early May I told you how ICE arrested an illegal alien from Guatemala who killed two American citizens in a car accident. The illegal has been punished while the American citizens he killed are permanently separated from their families.

The Maryland statue for negligent driving states, “A person is guilty of negligent driving if he drives a motor vehicle in a careless or imprudent manner that endangers any property or the life or person of any individual.”

I could not locate the penalty for negligent driving on the Maryland statues web site yet did find this on an attorney’s web site: “The penalties for negligent driving are less severe than those for reckless driving. Like reckless driving, negligent driving is a misdemeanor. But the scheduled fine for negligent driving is only $140, and the maximum fine a judge can impose in court is $500.”

From Daily Mail: An illegal immigrant alien who ran down and killed an FBI agent and a fire marshal on the side of a highway has avoided jail. 

Roberto Garza Palacios, 28, who arrived in the US in Guatemala and has overstayed his visa, paid just a $280 fine for killing Deputy Chief State Fire Marshal Sander Cohen and FBI Special Agent Carlos Wolff in December.

Garza Palacios did not appear in court and the case was closed on June 25 when he handed over the financial penalty, according to court documents obtained by the Washington Post

.(More from the Washington Post: “As Garza Palacios drove up on the two cars, he should have reacted more quickly, according to the state police findings.

When he tried to react, he told investigators, a car was to the right of him. He then veered left, striking Wolff and Cohen and sending them over the concrete wall. He told investigators he had not seen the men.” Read the whole story here.)

Wolff and Cohen were standing on the side of the road on I-270 in Montgomery County when they were struck by a Honda Accord driven by Garza Palacios. Wolff had crashed after reaching for his cellphone, and Cohen had stopped to help.Driving up behind the scene, Garza Palacios told authorities that he couldn’t swerve right and went left – not seeing the two men.

Cohen was hit by another car and died at the scene, while Wolff died at the hospital. 

Prosecutors found that while Garza Palacios drove in a ‘careless and imprudent manner,’ he did not do so in a way that was a ‘gross deviation’ from driving carefully. They couldn’t find that Garza Palacios had a ‘reckless disregard’ for human life which would prompt more serious charges.

‘This case is about an unfortunate accident. Mr. Garza Palacios feels terrible about the situation,’ his attorney, Asim A. Humayun, said.

Garza Palacios, a native of Guatemala, still faces possible deportation.On May 3, immigration authorities arrested him after the accident and charged him with overstaying a visa that expired in 2009.

In 2015, Garza Palacios was arrested in Montgomery County and ICE asked him to be placed on hold but that request was not honored. Humayun stated that the immigration case is still ongoing.

Garza Palacios pleaded guilty to driving while impaired in 2015. He served a four month stint in jail after smashing windows on 16 cars and lighting a sofa on fire near a construction site.

Illegal alien in country for 18 years gets sanctuary at Seattle church to avoid deportation

illegal

The illegal alien owns a painting company. Hence I’m assuming he’s somewhat smart enough to figure out how to obtain US citizenship. Apparently he only applied for a VISA this year after he was held at gun point.

Maybe he should have thought about planning for legal citizenship to avoid living “moment by moment” and being responsible for separating his own family.

From Seattle Times: Jose Robles was supposed to be on a plane back to Michoacan, Mexico, at 6 a.m. Thursday, but he packed his bags and went to Gethsemane Lutheran Church in downtown Seattle instead.

He said he felt fear and anxiety driving to the church for sanctuary to avoid deportation.

Churches are considered “sensitive locations” by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which means they are generally not allowed to conduct enforcement operations there.

Robles was referred to Gethsemane Lutheran Church by The Church Council of Greater Seattle, which is connected to more than 300 religious congregations.

The Church Council has been organizing vigils and demonstrations in the wake of family separations that have removed more than 2,000 immigrant children from their parents.

It is unclear whether there are other undocumented immigrants illegal aliens being given sanctuary in the Seattle area.

Michael Ramos, executive director of the Church Council, said this is the first sanctuary situation made public.

Gethsemane Lutheran Pastor Joanne Engquist said her congregation committed to being a sanctuary on April 9, 2017.  Robles is the first person provided sanctuary by the church, she said.

The church is prepared to provide sanctuary and necessary amenities to Robles for as long as he needs it, said Engquist. “We are relying on the wider community of congregations and faith leaders to bring food, conversation, medical and personal needs in this space to keep him comfortable,” she said.

Robles has lived in the U.S. for 18 years and lived in Lakewood for the past decade. He owns a painting company, but can no longer work while he’s in sanctuary. Donations were being accepted Thursday evening after a vigil held to bring attention to Robles’ cause.

“You don’t plan this,” Robles said in Spanish. “You’re living moment by moment and that’s not good.”

Robles doesn’t know when he will be able to leave the church.

Robles has been trying to apply for a U-Visa, which is given to certain undocumented immigrants illegal aliens who are victims of a crime and are cooperative with law enforcement in an investigation. In April, Robles said he was held at gunpoint and beaten while trying to get a haircut.

Lakewood officials need to sign off on the U-Visa for Robles to qualify, but haven’t. “We aren’t asking them to change the report, just to verify that it in fact did happen to me,” Robles said.

Robles says he had two traffic offenses, which, according to records, are for negligent driving. According to a statement from Lakewood officials, “the city of Lakewood is prohibited by state law from discussing this person’s legal history or their immigration status. As such, we can’t explain why his request was denied.”

Robles’ family is using every tool they have available to stay together.

The family were together at the church on Thursday before the 5:30 vigil to learn about how to get the word out on social media. More than a dozen of his family members showed up.

Daughters Brenda Robles, 24, and Yuritzy Robles, 19, both have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status, sometimes referred to as Dreamers.

Brenda said though she has DACA she feels like she isn’t safe anymore, and said her 8-year-old sister, Natalie Robles, has growing anxiety from the situation. “She’s in shock and just hoping he doesn’t have to go anywhere” she said.

Their mother, Susana Gaytan, said Natalie hasn’t been the same since it became apparent that her father would get deported.

Unreal: Previously deported illegal alien w/criminal background to serve 2 years for running red light, permanently separating American citizen from his family

matthew barthell killed by illegal

Matthew Barthel (l) killed by illegal Garcia Morales (r)

A story the agenda-driven MSM won’t report.

From Star Tribune (MN): A judge has given a four-year term to a motorist who ran a red light one winter morning while high on methamphetamine and killed a Big Lake man driving to his school district job northwest of the Twin Cities. (The illegal alien could have been sentenced for up to ten years.)

Juan Carlos Garcia Morales, 37, of Big Lake, was convicted of criminal vehicular homicide in April for the death of 33-year-old Matthew D. Barthel on Feb. 22, 2017. Sherburne County District Judge Sheridan Hawley sentenced him Monday.

With credit for time in jail since his arrest, Garcia Morales will serve just shy of two years in prison and the balance on supervised release. The sentence also calls for him to make restitution of nearly $4,000. (The illegal alien could have been fined up to $20,000.)

An official with Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Tuesday that Garcia Morales has been deported at least three times for being in the United States illegally from Mexico. The agency will continue to monitor him, the official added, but any attempt to have him deported again wouldn’t happen until after he serves his sentence, if at all.

“There are truly no words that can convey the traumatic loss of my only child, [and it’s] even worse to know that the person that killed Matthew has come to America illegally,” Meryl Kottke-Barthel said in her victim impact statement during sentencing.

“At what point does the [government] have some accountability to the citizens of the U.S. in ordering deportations of illegals who are arrested, instead of releasing them to only be arrested again and again and again?”

Garcia Morales has been convicted in Minnesota at least five times in the past 10 years for driving without a valid license. He had a valid license at the time of the collision; it was restored from revocation less than six weeks before the crash.

His criminal history in the state also includes convictions for disorderly conduct, domestic assault, malicious punishment of a child and receiving stolen property. Toxicology tests found amphetamine and methamphetamine in Garcia Morales’ blood at the time of the crash.

The collision occurred just west of Big Lake at Hwy. 10 and County Road 81 and while Barthel was about 3 miles from his job in technology support for the Monticello School District.

Then-Superintendent Jim Johnson said at the time that Barthel, who joined the district in 2013 and was married with two young children, always had a positive attitude. “When he was working he was in his element.”

Angel Moms describe how their children were permanently separated from their families

The stories the MSM and demorats do not want you to hear. Proof: CNN and MSNBC cut away from Trump’s event with the “Angel Families.”

One illegal alien who killed a young woman came here illegally as an unaccompanied minor. He remains a fugitive for murder.

One illegal alien killed a young man on a motorcycle while he was driving drunk. The young man (Matthew) was thrown from the motorcycle and initially survived the crash. The illegal alien ran over Matthew and dragged him a quarter mile while people were screaming at him to stop. The victim was dislodged from the illegal’s vehicle yet he backed up over his victim and fled, leaving Matthew to die. He was sentenced for only 12-14 years.

The last woman to speak to Laura Ingraham (when the video was cutoff) had some choice words for Kathy Griffin, who tweeted that President Trump was using the Angel Moms as propaganda. From Fox News:

“Sabine Durden, a legal immigrant from Germany, said her son Dominic was killed in 2012 when a truck slammed into his motorcycle. The truck’s driver, Juan Zacarias Tzun, was an illegal alien with two felonies and two DUIs, Durden has said.

“[Griffin] needs to go [to] a stage somewhere in little back alley and entertain the two people that are still following her,” Durden said on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“She just has no grounds. She has no soul. She has no heart. And I pray to God she never knows this feeling.”

Durden added that her son’s killer was jailed for just 35 days.
