Cops Directly Defied ICE By Letting Detained Man Free, Now This Same Illegal Is Charged With Murder…
By Marty Carlson
Let me preface this by saying I do not believe illegal aliens to be criminals, they are mostly hard-working people trying to support families but there is a reason why we have laws about some of these things. Here is such a story:
Ever Valles was in jail in Denver, and was arrested in October 2016 for car theft and other charges. He is a documented gang member, and in the Colorado gang database, and is here illegally.
He is a citizen of Mexico and was encountered by ICE in the criminal alien program following his arrest and was being held on an ICE detainer, for deportation.
Denver County jail administration did not honor the detainer that was placed on him. And he was released by the jail December 20, 2016. This was done without notifying ICE.
Due to his criminal history and gang affiliation, Valles was an ICE immigration enforcement priority.
But before Valles could be apprehended again, he along with another accomplice attempted to rob a gentleman by the name of Tim Cruz at a light rail station on February 7. The robbery went bad and they ended up killing Mr. Cruz.
Denver County Sheriff’s Department administration official statement says “that they are part of the criminal justice system and do not hold people on civil matters.”
They also claim that they gave notification to ICE that he was being released, ICE has no record of a release notification.
I researched this through multiple media outlets in the information was similar in all, it appears that this gentleman is a documented gang member, the long criminal history, was slated for deportation by ICE, and Denver County felt it was appropriate to release him back out into the public at large. Again, there are reasons why we have such laws, and Denver county’s is that they deal with criminal issues and not civil, but this is a gentleman has been a predator on society and they have a responsibility to take people like that off the street at every opportunity. In this case, they had good reason to not release him but politics got in the way and an innocent person died because of their actions.
Is this what we want from our public safety officials? All the deportations that are occurring may not be appropriate, but in this case, again a long history of criminal activity, the law enforcement officials had a responsibility to public safety to keep this person off the streets. Each individual case needs to be looked at separately for obvious reasons.
