The trump management aims at Philadelphia, the political leadership for a number of crimes, published by immigrants in the city, in defiance of Immigration and Customs Enforcement requirements.

The Ministry of justice this week highlighted the case of children, the rapist, Juan Ramon Vasquez, the only pleaded guilty to illegal re-entry.

The illegal immigrant from Honduras, she was back in Philadelphia arrest on the charges in the year 2014. But if these charges were dropped, a year later, city officials ignored a ICE detainer. Vasquez was later arrested and convicted for the rape of a child and unlawful sexual contact with a minor.

He is now in the service between eight and 20 years in prison.

“The facts in this case highlight the danger of the city of Philadelphia, to ignore the decision of ICE tumblers, and release of previously deported aliens, and the said local custody,” U.S. attorney William McSwain, in a statement, accused Philadelphia to give Vasquez a “free pass”.

The Honduran had been previously deported from the US in 2009, but returned.

“We owe the American people better. This is a perfect example of this is to cooperate if courts decide to side with the federal law enforcement, we are putting our communities in danger,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Fox News’ Sean Hannity said on Wednesday.

The Ministry of justice pointed to the video of mayor Jim Kenney, who served has since 2016, doing a victory jig in June, when a judge found in favor of the city in her fight with trump management in the sanctuary-city policy.

Needless to say, I think @Jane lusser and @Philly mayor are pretty excited about today’s decision by Reaffirming Philadelphia as a sanctuary in the city.

“We are a sanctuary city, yeah!” he was recorded, sings before high-fiving with his chief of staff.

The White house in this time, blasted the party as “disgusting.”

“Many people in Philadelphia were killed, raped or attacked in the hands of criminal illegal aliens,” White house spokesman Hogan Gidley told Fox News. “It is disgusting that the mayor would celebrate and dance in a lawless decision that these dangerous criminals to roam free, and in Philadelphia communities and prey on innocent families and children.”

Kenney pushed them back against the current controversy on Wednesday, saying that six times in the last year, the city handed over to individuals requested ICE cream, and you would like to do that as long as federal authorities got a warrant for your arrest.


“If you had to get a warrant, we have turned to, the person, none of this would have happened,” Kenney said, according to Fox 29.

But the administration notes that Vasquez is not a unique case, but the latest in a long series of criminal immigrants were released after the ICE tumblers were ignored by the city of brotherly love.

The official pointed to at least seven other cases in which alleged or convicted criminals were released, and in some cases criminal, was again due.

She gave the example of a 22-year-old Gambian man who was arrested for aggravated assault after allegedly trying to force his girlfriend into a hot oven during a domestic dispute.

“An ICE detainer in Philadelphia was said to be honored,” ICE, when it announced his arrest in March 2017.

Officials also cited the 2016 in the case of a Guatemalan citizen, was released from prison, in Philadelphia, after he had been convicted, two cases of illegal exposure, and false ID to law enforcement.

Also in the year 2016, ICE officers arrested three criminal immigrants, two Mexicans and Italians, after they were released, without tumblers honors from the Philadelphia authorities. The men had a conviction for crimes such as aggravated assault, weapons offenses, and drug production.

The battle with Philadelphia is part of a broad national battle between the trump administration, and some democratic officials, who have fought for the sanctuary of the city, the politics, and even the abolition of ICE cream.
