KGW - Portland refuses to alert ICE on release of violent illegal, earlier deported 20 times, who then rapes 65-yr-old - Sanctuary insane Mayor Wheeler might as well have done the raping. Woman was tied, blindfolded, punched, slammed head on floor --tma
PORTLAND, Ore. -- A man accused of breaking into a 65-year-old woman's home, sexually assaulting her and stealing her car was arrested after allegedly assaulting another woman and running from police.
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.
Earlier this year, Multnomah County leaders and Sheriff Mike Reese wrote a letter to the community saying, "The Sheriff's Office does not hold people in county jails on ICE detainers or conduct any immigration enforcement actions." ...
Apparently, to criminal-friendly Sheriff Reese this would also preclude simply picking up the phone and notifying ICE, say, a couple of weeks before violent illegals are released. In other words, 'We here in Portland are so ultra-enlightened that criminal illegals should feel free to rape and kill our citizens!'
