CA releases convicted child murderer, illegal immigrant – ignore ICE detainer because they are a ‘sanctuary state’


LOS ANGELES, CA – Immigration and Customs Enforcement had a detainer placed on an illegal alien who had been convicted of killing a child in California. 

Despite that detainer for a violent convicted felon, officials in the state released him.

The State of California prides themselves on being a sanctuary state, meaning that illegal aliens can live there without fear of deportation. 

Even with that being the case, a reasonable person would assume that the worst of the worst would be surrendered to ICE for deportation, like a child murderer.  Sadly, that is not the case in the state.

The convicted murderer, Carlos Morales-Ramirez, was released from the Valley State Prison in Chowchilla on December 4th according to ICE officials.  Ramirez, who is from El Salvador, was convicted of second-degree murder, assault on a child causing death, and great bodily injury to a child. 

Instead of detaining him for ICE officials to deport him from the country, the officials instead released him back out into the community.

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations Los Angeles Field Officer Director Dave Marin said:

“State sanctuary laws grant law enforcement officials the discretion to cooperate with immigration authorities in instances where serious or violent crimes have been committed; again, we are talking about the murder of a child – rather than working with our officers to ensure this convicted aggravated felon was safely handed over to ICE, he was released back into the community and our officers were forced to exhaust more time and resources relocating and re-arresting him.”

Thankfully, Ramirez was located and arrested during a target operation on December 10th in Los Angeles.  Ramirez’s previous murder conviction enables federal immigration authorities the begin removal proceedings while he remains in ICE custody. 

Marin said:

“California’s sanctuary policies continue to fail residents by allowing convicted criminals like Morales-Ramirez to walk free – state officials and advocates need to take a hard look at the reality, and potential consequences, of these misguided laws that leave potential victims wildly unprotected from very egregious criminal offenders.”

Proponents of the sanctuary status believes that if the provision was not in place that less illegal aliens would come forward if the witness or are the victim of a crime.  They believe this because the illegal aliens may fear deportation more so than whatever crime they are a victim of or had witnessed.

Those who are against sanctuary laws point out that criminal illegal aliens are simply released back into the United States without fear of being deported.  Some of those who have been released under sanctuary policies have gone on to reoffend after being released.

Along with Ramirez, ICE reported on December 8th that dozens of criminal aliens had been released from the Adelanto ICE processing center in Adelanto, California due to a judge’s order. 

Some of those that were released have already violated the terms of their release and others have already been rearrested by law enforcement.  ICE’s Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Director, Tony Pham:

“The fact that some of the released detainees have committed additional crimes demonstrates the dangers of these court-ordered released and how they can harm the public in the process. 

We were firm in our warning that these releases would impact public safety, and unfortunately, it did not take long for some of these criminal aliens to reoffend.  This proves that many of these aliens are recidivist offenders that should not have been released in the first place.”

According to ICE:

“In FY 2019, ICE arrested individuals with more than 1,900 convictions and charges for homicide, 1,800 for kidnapping, 12,000 sex offenses, 5,000 sexual assaults, 45,000 assaults, 67,000 crimes involving drugs, 10,000 weapons offenses, and 74,000 DUIs.”

DACA illegal alien charged with murder and sexual assault, plus 13 other crimes, after killing underage girl with fentanyl

December 10, 2020

ARAPAHOE COUNTY, CO – Authorities in the county south and east of the Denver metropolitan area have announced charges against Jorge Alexander Che-Quiab, a 25-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, in the death of 16-year-old Alexis Krzystek. 

Che-Quiab has been charged with first-degree murder and sexual assault. His involvement and assault of the girl included giving her an overdose  of fentanyl that killed her.  Charges also include the fact that Alexis, and several other girls with her, were minors.

According to law enforcement, Che-Quiab first illegally entered the United States through the southern border on an unknown date. In 2014, he was granted DACA protections, but was kicked out of the program after failing to renew his application.

It is alleged that Che-Quiab arrived at an August party with at least three minor girls and an 18-year-old woman and gave them fentanyl, which he told them was oxycodone.

Che-Quiab admitted to police that he and another man had sex with multiple girls, who were either high or drunk, including the 14-year-old girl whom he is accused of sexually assaulting.

From the Brietbart article:

“Che-Quiab, police said, did not call 911 when Krzystek began turning blue and instead went to sleep. The next morning, Krzystek was not breathing and Che-Quiab called 911 before getting rid of drugs that were in the residence.  When police arrived on the scene, they found fentanyl and heroin.

“Last week, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency placed a detainer on Che-Quiab, asking Arapahoe County officials to release the DACA illegal alien to their custody if he is released at any time.

“According to ICE, Colorado’s sanctuary state policy allowed Che-Quiab to post bail in October and be released from jail after being arrested in August for drug possession, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and child abuse with reckless bodily injury.”

John Fabbricatore, Director of the Denver Field Office for Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stated:

“Colorado’s sanctuary policy continues to fail the residents of this great state by ensuring that criminals who don’t belong here are released to the community where they could potentially harm more people.”

Che-Quiab faces 13 felony charges and is being held on a $2,000,000 bond.

Also involving an illegal immigrant in the Denver area, 29-year-old Felix Missael Alva was arrested after a three-month investigation, stemming from a shooting incident this past summer. 

A Denver police detective observed a man firing a gun in the air towards two helicopters during protests in downtown. 

Now, Alva, has been arrested and charged with the federal crime of unlawfully possessing a firearm as an undocumented immigrant.

Felix Missael Alva is a previously deported Mexican national who is living in the United States without documentation or citizenship, and remains in federal custody.

A lawyer from the Office of the Federal Public Defender for the Districts of Colorado and Wyoming represented Alva in his initial appearance in the U.S. District Court of Colorado. He is facing up to ten years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

According to the criminal complaint against Alva, authored by an agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATFE), a Denver police detective in plain clothes was walking on Washington Street, just south of Colfax Avenue, when a white Jeep Cherokee stopped next to him.

The detective observed a “Hispanic male, in his 30s with a medium to heavy build” in the passenger’s seat. The passenger looked at the detective and said:

“Hey Homie!”

He then said:

“This ain’t no peaceful protest, fuck twelve!” 

“Fuck twelve” is slang for “Fuck the police.”

According to the complaint, the man in the Jeep pulled out a large black semi-automatic handgun and held it down beneath the window before beginning to tap the muzzle on the side of the Jeep’s passenger door.

The man proceeded to point it at a Denver police helicopter flying overhead along with a local news helicopter. He said before opening fire:

“This is for them!”

Another detective and a nearby police officer also observed the man shooting the gun. After the passenger fired the weapon, the driver of the Jeep turned the wrong way down one-way East 14th Avenue.
