The Committee passed resolution 19-129 on Monday night. The resolution declares that sanctuary policies are “harmful to the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of the Township of Middletown for numerous reasons, including but not limited to undermining law enforcement, encouraging violations of federal immigration law, and jeopardizing receipt of meaningful federal funding.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Middletown, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Middeltown, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Sanctuary State | 11 Comments »

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.Art Gallagher | Filed under: New Jersey | Tags: ICE, Immigration Customs Enforecment, Luis Rodrigo Perez, Middlesex County Jail, New Jersey, Sabrina Starr, Sanctuary cities, Sanctuary State, Springfield Missouri | 14 Comments »

Middlesex County has been a sanctuary county since June when their all Democrat Freeholder Board voted to release criminally charged illegal aliens from custody in defiance of a federal order that the inmates be held for 48 hours until U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement Officers take custody of them.
Last week ICE agents arrested 36 of the criminally charged illegals, including a Filipino charged with sexual assault of a minor, a Mexican charged with child abuse, and a Mexican charged with criminal restraint of a minor, that Warden Mark Cranston had released from custody.
