Catch, release, repeat.
And now this:
The KING 5 Investigators have learned that an illegal immigrant accused of raping a woman in Edmonds Sunday has been deported nine times. That’s much more than previously reported.
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement won’t comment on the case of Jose Lopez Madrigal. But KING 5 got the information through confidential sources and documents.
Larry Klein was the man who heard the alleged victim’s cries for help.
…Klein called police, who quickly arrested the suspect. But learning his identity took much longer because of some 30 aliases. It was only through fingerprints that they identified him as Madrigal, a Mexican citizen.
Madrigal’s arrest and immigration record includes a staggering number of contacts with law enforcement since 1989. That’s the year he was convicted of theft using a firearm in California. He was deported a couple of times after that. Then in 1999, he was arrested for drug sales in both San Diego and San Francisco. Records show that he was deported three times that year between April and August. He was arrested for drugs again in Stockton, Calif. in 2000. In 2002, he pleaded to third degree sexual assault in Denver. Later that year, he was deported again. And in 2003, records show he was deported three more times.
People who live near the scene of Sunday’s alleged rape wonder how it could keep happening.
How could it keep happening? Duh. Catch-and-release remains the order of the day. (See here, here, here, and here, for example). And as every savvy immigration lawyer who has gamed the deportation abyss knows:
Jihadists know it.
The open-borders racket knows it.
Prosecutors know it.
And the Obama administration knows it.
ICE chief John Morton’s suggestion that the feds may refuse to process illegal aliens reported by the state of Arizona is simply a validation of the feds’ longstanding policy of selective, politicized non-enforcement.
For further proof, take a look at the little-noticed ICE website unveiled last week with new policy changes and summaries of the major “detention reforms and accomplishments of the last year.” Click on the link and you’ll find that five of the seven new policies that Morton touts as “accomplishments” involve not enforcing immigration law by making it harder to arrest them, catching-and-releasing them, or creating new loopholes for avoiding detention and deportation.
What part of Article IV, Section IV of the U.S. Constitution don’t these people understand?
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
