    As Senate Republicans prepare to take on cities that do not comply with federal immigration authorities, the Center for Immigration Studies reveals that the approximately 340 so-called sanctuary cities in the U.S. have been releasing about 1,000 criminal aliens, combined, monthly.

    A new Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) report obtained by CIS expert Jessica Vaughan and detailed in her new report reveals that between January 1 to September 30, 2014 sanctuary jurisdictions released 9,295 criminal aliens that ICE was seeking to deport. More than 600 were released more than once.

    Of the released criminal aliens, 62 percent had “significant prior criminal histories or other public safety concerns” in their past before their arrest — 58 percent of those criminal aliens with a prior history had prior felony charges or convictions, 37 percent had a serious misdemeanor charge and 5 percent had multiple prior misdemeanors.

    According to Vaughan’s report, 2,320 of the criminal aliens released by sanctuary cities were rearrested within the nine month timeframe in which they were released for new crimes. Vaughan highlighted the case of Victor Aureliano Hernandez Ramirez who allegedly raped and killed a 64-year-old woman after the Santa Barbara County Sheriff ignored a detainer on ICE placed on him following an earlier battery arrest.

    The majority of criminal aliens released by sanctuary cities in the timeframe studied have remained on the streets. The CIS report reveals that as of last year 69 percent were still at large, and of those still on the streets about 20 percent were arrested again.

    “Our elected officials must not continue to sit back and watch these sanctuary jurisdictions release thousands and thousands of deportable criminal aliens back into our communities in defiance of ICE efforts to deport them, and then witness the harm that inevitably ensues when these removable offenders strike again,” Vaughan said Thursday.

    “There is no more obvious immigration issue on which Congress could act now than to rein in this obstruction of a vital law enforcement mission that keeps our communities safer,” she added.

    The issue of sanctuary cities became front page news in July with the murder of Kathryn Steinle, allegedly by a multiple deportee illegal immigrant with a long rap sheet. Local authorities in the sanctuary city of San Francisco had released the shooter — despite an ICE detainer — mere months before he killed Steinle.

    In reaction to Steinle’s murder the House passed a bill to restrict federal funding to jurisdictions that refuse to comply with federal immigration requests. This month the Senate is slated to vote on legislation introduced by Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)called the “Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act” that also targets sanctuary cities and offers legal protections to local law enforcement that cooperates with federal immigration authorities.

    CIS complied a list of sanctuary jurisdictions in July revealing that the federal government had identified 276 such areas as of September 2014. Thursday, CIS reported that ICE updated its list in December, bringing the total number of jurisdiction up to 340.

    They are all criminals, and further, they are accessories aiders, abettors and conspirators. This is a national crisis, and needs to be handled as utmost national security, for both political secrets and industrial secrecy. That is why unregistered foreign lobbying is handled by the Counterespionage section of the US DOJ.

    Sanctuary Cities Ignore ICE Orders to Free 9,295 Criminal Aliens

    October 13, 2015

    As the U.S. Senate considers a bill to slash funding for local governments that protect violent illegal immigrants, a new study reveals that hundreds of sanctuary cities nationwide released thousands of criminal aliens from jail rather than turn them over to federal authorities for deportation.

    This proves that legislation to crack down on jurisdictions that obstruct enforcement of federal immigration law is long overdue. In fact, the measure was inspired by the summer murder of a San Francisco woman by an illegal immigrant with seven felony convictions and five deportation orders. Because San Francisco is an illegal alien sanctuary, local law enforcement officials don’t notify the feds about detainees who should be deported. Federal lawmakers want to send those municipalities a message, says the senator that introduced the measure, Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act.

    If it passes federal funding will be withheld from sanctuary states or cities that fail to comply with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued detainer requests for illegal aliens. The money would be redirected to states and localities that follow the law. “There is absolutely no reason that any U.S. city should be allowed to ignore our nation’s immigration laws and provide a safe harbor for illegal immigrants,” said Louisiana Senator David Vitter, in a statement introducing the measure this month. Illegal immigrants have committed other murders and terrible acts of violence across the U.S. since the San Francisco incident that drew national attention, Vitter said.

    That’s because in less than a year 340 sanctuary cities, counties and states around the U.S. released 9,295 alien offenders that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was seeking to deport. More than half had significant prior criminal histories and 600 were released at least twice by jurisdictions that protect criminal aliens from deportation by refusing to comply with ICE detainers. The figures were made public recently by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a nonprofit dedicated to researching the consequences of legal and illegal immigration into the United States.

    Of the illegal immigrants released into unsuspecting communities, 58% had prior felony charges or convictions and 37% had serious prior misdemeanor charges, the CIS probe found. An astounding 2,320 of the freed offenders were subsequently arrested within the eight-month time period studied for new crimes. Here’s an enraging example included in the CIS document: Victor Aureliano Hernandez Ramirez, arrested in July 2015 for raping and bludgeoning a 64-year-old California woman who died eight days later. Ramirez had been arrested for battery a year earlier but the county sheriff blew off an ICE detainer that would have deported him in accordance with California’s state sanctuary law.

    Once these criminal illegal aliens are freed by sanctuary cities, ICE has difficulty tracking them down, according to records obtained for the study. As of last year, 6,460 (69%) were still at large. Of those still at large, 1,377 (20%) had another criminal arrest following the one that resulted in the original ICE detainer. This is why a violent criminal, Francisco Javier Chavez, is on the loose. In August 2015 he was arrested for beating his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter and, despite an extensive criminal record that includes felony drug and drunk-driving convictions, a California sheriff’s department ignored an ICE detainer and released him.

    California is the biggest offender when it comes to blowing off federal orders to hand over criminal illegal aliens, according to ICE records cited in the study. A chart offers a breakdown of the cities and counties that release the largest amount of criminal aliens identified by the feds for removal. Santa Clara County takes the prize with 1,349 for 2014 followed by Los Angeles and Alameda counties with 572 each. Miami Dade County in south Florida came in fourth with 491. “We need to send a loud and clear message to any sanctuary cities that their dangerous policies are not acceptable,” Senator Vitter said.

    According to a national group that supports more restrictive policies on immigration, Chesterfield County is now one of a growing number of U.S. communities the group considers “sanctuary cities” for

    undocumented aliens because they decline to enforce a specific federal immigration policy.

    However, the policy that Chesterfield doesn’t enforce was eliminated nearly a year ago, in response to exactly the same concerns that led the county to stop enforcing it.

    In a report posted on its website last week, the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies said Chesterfield is one of about 340 localities nationwide that are “obstructing immigration

    enforcement,” mostly because of “policies to ignore ICE detainers.”

    ICE is Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal agency responsible for identifying, arresting and deporting undocumented immigrants.

    One tool ICE has used for a number of years is known as an immigration detainer – a request to a local law enforcement agency or correctional facility to keep an arrested person in custody for up to 48

    hours after they’re supposed to be released.
