    ICE holds Mexican man arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure

    CRIME: ICE holds Mexican man arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure

    A Mexican man arrested in Escondido this week on suspicion of fondling himself in his truck near where children were walking to school has been placed in federal custody on an immigration hold, police said Wednesday.

    Escondido police officials pointed to the arrest of Antonio Montoya-Senteno, 28, as proof that Operation Joint Effort, their controversial partnership with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is working.

    An adult witness saw Senteno fondling himself and watching children walk to school in the 1200 block of Broadway in Escondido on Tuesday, said Escondido police Lt. Chris Wynn. No children saw the act, he said.

    Officers found Senteno in his truck and arrested him on suspicion of indecent exposure, a misdemeanor. Normally, police officers would have booked and released Senteno at the scene.

    However, because he did not have an identification card, officers took him to the Escondido Police Department headquarters where ICE agents questioned him and determined he was not in the U.S. legally, Wynn said. Senteno has voluntarily gone back to Mexico three times in the past, Wynn said.

    "The state charges Montoya-Senteno is facing are not bookable and he may not have (been) identified as a criminal alien had it not been for the ICE officers who assisted at the Escondido Police Department," Wynn wrote in the statement.

    "This case represents another example of how Operation Joint Effort has assisted local law enforcement with the removal of criminal aliens from our community."

    As part of Operation Joint Effort, eight ICE agents and one supervisor work out of the Escondido Police Department headquarters, working with police and questioning criminal suspects about their immigration status.

    Earlier this year, Police Chief Jim Maher said only people lawfully stopped by police officers, and not victims of crimes, would be turned over to ICE agents for questioning.

    Immigrants and civil rights groups have criticized the partnership, saying it could frighten illegal immigrants living otherwise law-abiding lives into not reporting crimes, for fear of being deported.

    This week, a broad coalition of conservative groups in the county called on Sheriff Bill Gore to allow ICE officers into sheriff's stations, a policy change Gore has resisted.
