LOS ANGELES, CA – A new report finds that 192 illegal immigrants have been recently freed from detention in America by federal judges.
And among them are many who have been convicted of child sex crimes, murder and rape.
The report was released by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency this week.
It showed that some 192 illegal immigrants so far have been ordered released from detention into the United States, and of them – about 171 have been either accused or convicted of crimes against Americans.
Breitbart reports the most widespread, court-ordered releases have been centered in Los Angeles, California; Boston, Massachusetts; New York City, New York; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In Boston, federal judges have ordered the release of 44 illegal immigrants from ICE custody. Of those, 42 have been accused of or convicted of crimes including assault, domestic violence, rape and drug trafficking.
Let’s look at Los Angeles, where another 52 have been freed.
Of that number, 43 have reportedly been convicted or accused of crimes such as juvenile sex offenses, homicide, child cruelty and assault with a deadly weapon.

Sexual assault, rape, drunk driving, cruelty towards a child, drug possession or assault.

We have been reporting over the past couple of months about attempts across the country to use the coronavirus as an excuse to stage a real life version of “Prison Break,” except for the fact that these inmates aren’t crawling through a hole behind the toilet in the cell. They are literally walking out the front door.
According to Breitbart, socialist George Soros’ backed ACLU, of which he is a significant benefactor, is suing Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes, demanding that he free somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 inmates from the county’s jails.
The suit claims the inmates are vulnerable to being affected by the coronavirus.

As of April 29, 227 inmates had been tested for the coronavirus, with under 120 being found testing positive.
In a statement to the OC Register, Barnes said that he is opposed to the mass release of inmates.
“I will continue to take measures needed to ensure the capacity is available to maintain safe operations and preserve our ability to house criminal offenders,” Barnes said.
“In preserving the safety of our custody operations, I must also ensure the safety of the law-abiding public. I am not supportive of extensive preemptive releases that go beyond what is necessary to keep the jail and community safe.”
Without the release being demanded by the ACLU, Orange County’s inmate population has dropped by nearly half in less than two months. Barnes claims that the jails in the county are not overcrowded.
Breitbart reported last week on seven sex offenders that had been released from Orange County jails by Court Commissioner Joseph Dane. Law enforcement officials had warned that all seven were “high risk” offenders and were likely to reoffend.
This seems to contradict the narrative among prison release advocates who say that inmates being released would be at “high risk” of contracting COVID-19, and would be low-level offenders. That has not proven to be the case in many instances.

In fact, after the release, one of the sex offenders was rearrested after he exposed himself in public. This individual had previously been convicted of child molestation, indecent exposure, assault, battery, criminal threats and inflicting injury on an elder adult.
The ACLU, which has been absent in the wake of civil liberties violations across the country by overzealous state and local officials, filed the suit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California’s Southern Division.
In the case of the inmate rearrested, Rudy William Grajeda Magdaleno was released from jail on April 13, after serving under half of his 180-day minimum sentence. He only served 71 days in jail.

Ironically, Magdaleno was at a parole resource center four days later when he exposed himself to staff members at that location. He also failed to charge his GPS monitor, which caused the device to stop tracking him the day before. He fled the scene, however he was soon picked up by authorities.
Santa Ana Police Chief David Valentin was unhappy about the situation. “I find it extremely troubling that this high risk sex offender was authorized for release, in spite of his significant documented criminal history,” he said.
According to Santa Ana police, he had convictions which included sexual assault on a mentally disabled person; breaking into a home while naked from the waist down and peeking into an 11-year-old girl’s room; and entering a law office in Santa Ana, sitting on the floor, and beginning to masturbate while staring at a woman in the office.
“These kinds of high-risk sex offenders are the most dangerous kind of criminal and the most likely to reoffend,” said District Attorney Todd Spitzer in a statement. “They are doing everything they can to avoid detection by the parole officers assigned to monitor them so they can potentially commit additional sex offenses. These are not the kind of people who should be getting a break.”
The other six offenders who were released were identified by the District Attorney’s office:
Luis Joel Ramirez, 27, of Costa Mesa, with a history of sexual battery, assault with a deadly weapon, resisting a peace officer, burglary, and possessing a leaded cane, with four occasions of parole violation since 2019;
James Franklin Bowling, 50, of Orange, with a history of lewd conduct in a public place, repeated convictions for failure to register as a sex offender, repeated convictions of being a sex offender on school grounds, possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia, and two parole violations since February;
Calvin Curtis Coleman, 52, of Santa Ana, who has a history of lewd conduct in a public place and has allegedly violated parole three times in the past year;
Kyle Albert Winton, 40, of Mission Viejo, who has a history of child molestation, criminal threats to cause great bodily injury or death, resisting a peace officer, DUI, and hit and run with property damage, and has allegedly violated his parole once;
Jose Adrian Oregel, 46, of Santa Ana, with a history of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, oral copulation of a person under the age of 18, great bodily injury, and being a second striker, who has also violated his parole six times since last June; and
Mario Ernesto Sandoval, 45, of Stanton, who has a history of sexual battery, touching for sexual arousal, indecent exposure, assault on a peace officer and assault, and allegedly violated parole once this year.
It was incorrectly reported that the Orange County Sheriff’s Department had authorized the release of the seven inmates, however that misinformation was clarified by Sheriff Barnes in a tweet.
