A five-year-old girl was brutally raped by a criminal illegal alien that the “sanctuary city” of Philadelphia let go free instead of sending to ICE for deportation. THIS is the danger that liberals are putting us all in by refusing to deport these monsters.
Indeed, this is the sort of criminals that liberals coddle; rapists, murderers, drug pushers, and MS-13 gang members. THESE are the people liberals are working to make sure walk free among us.
As Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said, “We owe the American people better. This is a perfect example of when jurisdictions decide not to cooperate with federal law enforcement.”

As Townhall reported:
This week, an illegal alien who was released by local law enforcement officials pleaded guilty to unlawful reentry into the United States after being convicted of raping a child. The alien had an ICE detainer and officials let him out into the streets without notifying federal immigration officials.
“U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain announced that Juan Ramon Vasquez, a citizen of Honduras, pleaded guilty today to illegal reentry after deportation. In May 2009, the defendant was deported from the United States,” the Department of Justice released in statement. “Thereafter, in March 2014, the defendant was found back in the United States by U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) officers. At that time, Vasquez was in the custody of the Philadelphia Department of Prisons.”
“The City of Philadelphia thereafter chose not to comply with a detainer lodged by ICE for the defendant, who was instead released from custody by the Philadelphia Department of Prisons. After his release, the defendant was rearrested and convicted for rape of a child and unlawful sexual contact with a minor. The defendant is currently serving a sentence of 8 to 20 years in state prison,” the statement continues.
McSwain went on to excoriate the city of Filthydelphia for this horrible crime:
The facts of this case highlight the danger posed by the City of Philadelphia’s decision to disregard ICE detainers and release previously deported aliens from local custody. Those of us in the law enforcement business should be doing everything in our power to protect vulnerable children from predators like Vasquez. Instead, this defendant received a free pass from the City of Philadelphia and its Department of Prisons, headed straight back into our community, and committed a heinous crime he never would have had the chance to commit had the City of Philadelphia complied with the ICE detainer.
You may recall that the scumbag Democrat mayor of this city is the one who was caught literally dancing a jig after the city council voted to make Philadelphia a lawbreaking “sanctuary city.”
I wonder how the parents of this little baby feel who was raped by one of the criminals mayor Jim Kenny allowed to go free?
