“An undocumented immigrant and convicted child murderer was released from a California prison despite a request that he be turned over to federal immigration agents, officials said,” according to the New York Post.
“Carlos Morales-Ramirez, a citizen of El Salvador, was sprung earlier this month from Valley State Prison in Chowchilla, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said in a statement Monday.
“The 44-year-old Morales-Ramirez had been serving time on charges of murder, assault on a child causing death and great bodily injury to a child causing death. [emphasis added]
“ICE officials said his release defied their petition for him to be handed over to them to begin deportation proceedings.
“‘The request was not honored, and Carlos Morales-Ramirez was released onto the streets Dec. 4,’ the agency said.
‘[California’s] policy allows local law enforcement agencies to disregard detainer requests from immigration officials.
“‘State sanctuary laws grant law enforcement officials the discretion to cooperate with immigration authorities in instances where serious or violent crimes have been committed,’ Dave Marin, director of the agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations in Los Angeles, said in a statement.
“Marin slammed the sanctuary policies, claiming that they ‘continue to fail residents by allowing convicted criminals like Morales-Ramirez to walk free.'”
