Texas Attorney General Threatens to Sue Biden Over "Illegal Deportation Freeze"

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxon said he will sue the Biden administration over its “illegal deportation freeze.”

“Border states like Texas pay a particularly high price when the federal government fails to faithfully execute our country’s immigration laws,” Paxton wrote in a letter. Paxton remarked: “I won’t tolerate unlawful acts from Joe Biden’s administration. Today, I am taking action.”. . .

ICE Removes Convicted Murderer to Guatemala

PORTLAND, Ore. – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers removed a Guatemalan national Thursday, who was convicted of a 1985 murder in Oregon.

On Dec. 13, 1985, the Portland Police Bureau arrested Luis Lopez Carrasco, 56, for murder and other local charges.

Lopez-Carrasco was previously removed in 1984 after an immigration judge issued him a final order of removal. He illegally re-entered the U.S. and in May 1985 was convicted in Texas for aggravated robbery and sentenced to 10 years’ confinement with the Texas Department of Corrections. It was while he was serving this sentence that Texas authorities facilitated his extradition to Oregon to face additional charges in Multnomah County, Oregon. . .

Criminal Alien Shielded by Washington's Sanctuary Law--again!

Feds Try Highway Billboards to Catch Illegal Alien Criminals Released by Sanctuaries

A national pandemic of local municipalities protecting illegal immigrant criminals is driving federal authorities to resort to desperate measures to keep communities safe. This month Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) launched a billboard campaign seeking the public’s help in capturing felons released by various law enforcement agencies throughout Pennsylvania under sanctuary policies. The state has more than a dozen official sanctuary counties that have recently discharged convicted or arrested criminal aliens. Police throughout the Keystone State refuse to honor a local-federal partnership known as 287(g) that notifies ICE of jail inmates in the country illegally so that they can be deported after serving time for state crimes . . .

ICE Arrests More than 170 Illegal Aliens At Large During Sanctuary City Crackdown

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency announced Thursday that it has arrested more than 170 at-large illegal immigrantsthroughout the country in a crackdown focused on sanctuary cities.

The 176 arrests in Philadelphia, Denver, Seattle, New York, Washington, and Baltimore were a culmination of a week-long effort from Oct. 3-9 . . .

EXCLUSIVE: Illegal Alien, Alleged Drug Trafficker On The Loose After Sanctuary Authorities Let Him Go, ICE Says


• Mexican national Francisco Vasquez-Cruz was arrested on drug-trafficking charges by Oregon State Police on April 28 and booked into the Jackson County Jail.

• Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to the Daily Caller News Foundation that Vasquez-Cruz is in the United States illegally, and is considered an ICE fugitive after Jackson County authorities ignored its detainer request and released him into the public.

• Oregon is a sanctuary state that largely restricts how local and state law enforcement can cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requested that Oregon authorities cooperate on the transfer of an illegal alien arrested for drug possession and money laundering, but they refused and the alien is at-large, the agency confirmed.

Two men, Leonel Campos-Valdez and Francisco Vasquez-Cruz, were traveling in a Ford-150 pickup on April 28 when they were stopped by an Oregon State Police trooper for multiple traffic violations, local authorities first revealed. After observing “potential criminal behavior,” the trooper conducted a search of the vehicle. . .

ICE: Operation Stolen Promise

 

 

COVID-19 has brought much of the world to a halt, while social distancing and other preventive measures have become the new normal for society. The disease is currently affecting approximately 195 countries around the world. Despite the danger and uncertainty this global pandemic has caused, individuals and organizations around the world are attempting to take advantage of it for illicit financial gain. These illegal efforts not only compromise legitimate trade and financial systems, but threaten the integrity of the U.S. border, and endanger the safety and security of the American public.

With its expansive authorities, robust cyber capabilities, and strategic partnerships worldwide, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is uniquely positioned to combat the efforts of perpetrators who violate the laws of the United States to further COVID-19-related criminal activity. . .

 

Most Wanted Illegal Alien Convicted of Sex with a Minor, Battery Freed 6 Times

There is no shortage of examples nationwide that confirm illegal immigrant sanctuary policies endanger communities and this month we have a case that should serve as the poster child. Not surprisingly, it comes out of California but even for a notorious sanctuary state it seems excessive. An illegal alien with a lengthy criminal history that includes convictions for felony sex with a minor and battery was released by San Francisco authorities six times despite his violent history that also includes a domestic violence arrest. . .

Beyond the DOC Mexican national incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per type of crime, criminal aliens from Mexico place a substantial economic burden on Oregonians.

An individual inmate incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for 662 Mexican national inmates is approximately ($71,668.12) per day, ($501,676.84) per week, and ($26,158,863.80) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 662 Mexican national inmates includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.
