Released From Middlesex County “Sanctuary,” Illegal Alien Kills Three in Missouri

The Middlesex County Department of Corrections released Luis Rodrigo Perez from custody last February, in defiance of an Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) detainer issued by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in December.

Perez, 23, shot and killed three people in Springfield, Missouri last week, according to Missouri law enforcement authorities.

“Yet again, an ICE detainer was ignored and a dangerous criminal alien was released to the streets and is now charged with killing three people,” said ICE Acting Executive Associate Director Corey Price. “Had ICE’s detainer request in December 2017 been honored by Middlesex County Jail, Luis Rodrigo Perez would have been placed in deportation proceedings and likely sent home to his country – and three innocent people might be alive today. It is past time that localities realize the perils of dangerous sanctuary policies and resume their primary goal of protecting their residents.”

Perez was being held in the Middlesex County Jain on domestic violence charges.  Unnamed Middlesex County officials are quoted by NJ.com  blaming ICE for Perez’s release, explaining that their policy is not to hold illegals who haven’t killed or maimed anyone yet.
