“Where sense is wanting, everything is wanting.” –Benjamin Franklin”
On December 2,2017 Fox News reported that a “Mexican immigrant deported 20 times gets 35 years in Portland sex assaults.”
Quoting Portland’s KATU News, the Mexican national “had been deported 20 times and had a series of probation violations for illegal crossings into the United States.” He was “released from Multnomah County Jail in December 2016 despite the objections of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.” According to KATU, ICE had asked local authorities to alert the federal agency prior to Martinez’s release but “local authorities released Martinez back into the community the following day without providing any notification to ICE.”
The sentencing came a day after the acquittal of another Mexican national in the death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco, another “Sanctuary” City.
Oregon State Government Officials Complicit
Violating Federal law, Kate Brown, Oregon’s Governor, by executive and legislative action, supported by democrat state senators and representatives, created barriers to law enforcement doing its job by controlling what information police and sheriffs may share, and the extent to which they can coordinate with federal authorities.
Billy J. Williams United States Attorney for the District of Oregon whose comments were published on OregonLive, Aug. 6, 2017 said, “Oregon’s sanctuary status declaration (by Oregon Governor Kate Brown) directly contravenes federal immigration law and threatens public safety. This has put many sheriffs in the position of choosing whether to violate state or federal law. It’s an untenable position.”
By preventing lawful investigation and enforcement, the Oregon governor and democrat legislators are shielding illegals from deportation, and thereby putting citizens and law enforcement at risk; One more reason Salem needs a ‘Facelift’ in the 2018 Elections.
How many times will state officials under Kate Brown and the Oregon State legislature interfere with lawful federal enforcement, putting law enforcement and citizens in harm’s way?
