    Philadelphia Released a Previously Deported Illegal Alien From Custody, Then He Raped

    Philadelphia Released a Previously Deported Illegal Alien From Custody, Then He Raped a Child

    Two weeks ago Philadelphia city officials decided to end a long-standing contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
    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.

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    He should have gotten a heftier punishment/sentence.

    That said, these are "sensational" stories. We here them often because of that. If media outlets posted every story of a former inmate who sexually assaulted someone or committed some other crime there would be no room or time to cover any other issue. Basically, our criminals are just as bad, but they are citizens. The coverage is such that it places the focus on illegal immigrants and everyone gets outraged when it has always been a problem and will always be a problem that people released from prison often re-offend and quickly end up back in prison, often for worse crimes. The lack of citizenship adds another layer to the issue, but the coverage on these cases is not "balanced reporting".
