ICE was not notified the last time the immigrant rape suspect was released from jail.
The immigrant rape suspect had been living as a transient for about a year even though Sergio Jose Martinez had a criminal record for more than entering the country illegally. His record includes at least one violent crime before these recent actions. But the Multnomah County authorities are too wise and enlightened to cooperate with ICE.
Protecting citizens and legal residents would be too much work.
According to court documents filed in March 2017, Martinez has a history of illegal entry into the United States. He has been a transient in the Portland area for more than a year and has been deported 20 times.
Martinez has at least five probation violations for re-entering the United States. His most recent removal was in November 2016, according to the March court documents.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an immigration detainer against Martinez, asking authorities to notify them before releasing Martinez to allow ICE to take him into custody. The Department of Homeland Security said a detainer was requested for Martinez in December 2016, but he was released into the community and authorities did not notify ICE.
