Illegal alien Juan Ramon Vasquez was deported in 2009. Nothing was heard from him until 2014 when he was arrested in Philadelphia, but ICE was unable to get them to honor their detainer. Vasquez went on to rape a small child, and he is currently under arrest for that. I would love to do a panel discussion with the mayors of sanctuary cities and ask them how they feel when an illegal they release commits a heinous crime. Or do they not even care? That’s my bet. We hear stories like this all the time, including possibly the most famous case, the killing of Katie Steinle.
Illegal alien Juan Ramon Vasquez was previously deported in May 2009 and resurfaced on the radar of U.S. authorities in May 2014 after an arrest in Philadelphia. ICE agents were unable to detain Vasquez and re-deport him, however, because he was released by the city, which has a sanctuary policy for illegal aliens.
Vasquez committed the rape of the child after his release.
“The facts of this case highlight the danger posed by the City of Philadelphia’s decision to disregard ICE detainers and release previously deported aliens from local custody,” said U.S. Attorney McSwain said in a Wednesday statement, adding, “This defendant received a free pass from the City of Philadelphia and its Department of Prisons, headed straight back into our community, and committed a heinous crime he never would have had the chance to commit had the City of Philadelphia complied with the ICE detainer.”
I don’t normally agree with practices of the past, but in this case I’ll make an exception. Many years ago in Europe, if a judge freed a man instead of putting him in prison, and that man committed a crime, he would be considered equally guilty as the man he freed. As a result, judges were very careful who they freed.
A personal message from David.
How many more horror stories like this do we have to hear about… How many more tragedies do we have to read about after-the-fact… How many more families have to be torn apart before we change???
What have we come to as a country when we have politicians that have been elected by the people, to serve the people, to protect the people, to support the people that elected them into their positions of power and authority, that choose over and over and over again to put individuals that are in our country illegally over the very citizens they have sworn to protect and serve?
We are a nation of laws, and those laws are put in place to protect us. When will Americans understand that when elected officials choose to change those laws so that they do not protect their own citizens but rather put their own citizens in danger? When will Americans realize that it’s time to stop electing those individuals? And it seems to me that the majority of those politicians that are changing the laws to be in favor of non-citizens, even illegal individuals, are always on the Progressive Left… Otherwise known as Democrats.
Will we reach a point when the majority of Americans wake up? Or will we as a people continue to move forward blindly – hoping and believing that if we open our borders to all and anyone that wants to come into our country that all those that come in will come in peacefully, desiring to actually make a positive contribution to our society? I believe that that kind of blind faith is what will lead to more instances like this story.
When I read stories like this, I often have to remind myself I’m not just reading a headline, and I’m not just hearing about a statistic. I’m reading about an individual’s life that was torn apart. I’m reading about a family that is currently dealing with absolute turmoil and chaos. I’m reading about an American family that are rightful citizens to this great nation, that are dealing with a tragedy that someone – that no one – should ever have to imagine going through… Especially here in our great United States of America.
This could have been avoided. This tragedy did not have to happen. This young child’s life did not have to be forever scarred by this man. This man took, forcefully took, this child’s innocence. Had the politicians of Philadelphia understood the reason for ICE, the need to allow law-enforcement to partner with our immigrations and customs enforcement officers, this young child’s life could have been spared, instead of being forever marred by an experience that no child should ever have to go through.
These politicians should be held accountable for this crime. All politicians that support giving sanctuary to illegals should be held accountable if those illegals go on to commit violent acts of rape, torture, or murder! I bet if we held these politicians to the same fate as the illegals that they are so hell-bent on protecting, they would change their tune in a heartbeat. But until we, the American people, start to make our voices heard, I don’t think change will ever come.
Must I remind you all that these are Democrat politicians that are passing laws that are not in favor of the citizens they are sworn to protect and serve, but they are passing laws to protect and serve individuals that are in our country illegally?
I bet if you tried explain to a child that an individual that did not have a right to enter into someone’s home, but was then given a right to stay in someone’s home by a politician, and that individual went on to hurt, rape, or kill the ones living in the home, the child would ask “what the heck is wrong with that politician?”. I bet the child would also ask if the politician is going to go to jail…
