Another Sanctuary City Case: Illegal Alien Deported 20 Times Commits Horrible Crime

The acquittal of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate in the killing of Kate Steinle was quite a shock for most Americans. The case was a bellwether for opinion on sanctuary cities.

ICE asked San Francisco to hold Zarate, an illegal alien who had been deported multiple times and had multiple felonies for their pick-up.

Instead, they released him and he later killed Steinle. His attorneys argued it was all an accident: he accidentally found a stolen gun, it accidentally went off three times when he picked it up and a bullet accidentally hit Steinle.

The jury appeared to accept this argument and found Garcia Zarate not guilty of all the charges except for illegal possession of a weapon.

The outrage over the case propelled calls to change sanctuary cities, a cause that President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have held dear.

Sessions again called for the passage of ‘Kate’s Law’ after the verdict, calling on the Senate to pass it.

But while Congress delays and sanctuary cities fight the effort, the horrible crimes because of it keep happening.

A Mexican illegal alien was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Friday for sexually assaulting two women in Portland, Oregon.

From Fox News:

KATU News reported that Mexican national Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, attacked two women in Portland, Ore., on the same day. The first was a 65-year-old whose car he stole, and a younger woman. He was arrested July 24, the report said.

Prior to the attacks, Martinez had been deported 20 times, had a series of probation violations for illegal crossings into the United States and had a felony burglary conviction, reported, citing court documents filed in March.

He was being held on other charges in December of last year.

Martinez faced charges of kidnapping, assault, robbery and sodomy, KATU News reported. He was released from Multnomah County Jail last December despite the objection of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.

ICE had asked local authorities to alert the federal agency prior to Martinez’s release, the paper reported.

But ICE said they were never contacted, that “local authorities released Mr. Martinez back into the community the following day without providing any notification to ICE.”

Martinez then went on to assault the women.

Once again, because of the sanctuary city policy.

Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese and county officials tried to excuse their actions claiming “the Sheriff’s Office does not hold people in county jails on ICE detainers or conduct any immigration enforcement actions,” according to KGW.

No, sorry, you don’t get off that easily.

You’re responsible for the policies you chose and you should be sued by everyone harmed and concerned until you stop them.

This needs to stop already.
