We have learned nothing since America’s worst illegal alien catch-and-release nightmare, the Angel Resendiz case (go here for a refresher course).
The latest victims of the feds’ refusal to fully fund detention space and stop the deportation revolving door? Victims of an illegal alien drunk driver in Prince William County, Va., who had been, as so many countless illegal alien criminals before him, released on his own recognizance pending deportation, via WTOP:
The Chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors is furious with the federal government after learning that Carlos Montano – the man responsible for a car accident that killed one nun and injured two others Sunday morning – was an illegal immigrant in the early stages of being deported.
In a phone interview with WTOP Monday, Corey Stewart says on two separate occasions in 2007 and 2009, Prince William County Police identified Montano as an illegal alien.
After serving his sentences, Prince William County Police handed Montano over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, who were told to deport him.
Stewart says ICE has refused to tell Prince William County why Montano was released instead of being deported.
The Washington Times adds:
The latest ICE statistics show the agency is actually detaining fewer people now on an average daily basis than they did in 2009.
The Sunday morning crash killed Sister Denise Mosier and injured two other nuns as they were driving to a retreat at the Benedictine Monastery in Bristow, Va. The two injured nuns were in critical but stable condition, according to St. Gertrude High School in Richmond, run by the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia.
Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.
