A California toddler fighting for her life Thursday after a brutal beating at the hands of an illegal immigrant with a long criminal record is the latest case to rile California sheriffs and police against a U.S. immigration policy they say is forcing them to release dangerous criminals out on the street.
Francisco Javier Chavez, the live-in boyfriend of the unidentified two-year-old's mother, is out on bail after being charged in the late July attack, which left the San Luis Obispo County girl with two broken arms, a broken femur, a compressed spine, a urinary tract infection and a fever of 107 degrees. Chavez's criminal record includes assault and drug convictions and arrests for violent acts including kidnapping, car jacking and cruelty to a child.
A disgusted San Luis Obispo Sheriff Ian Parkinson told FoxNews.com Chavez should have been locked away or deported long before he had the chance to inflict "horrific injuries" on the little girl, but said conflicting federal policies leave his department handcuffed. Instead, Chavez is now free, awaiting a court date for which he may not even show up.
“The truth is, if we had any legal right to hold him, we would, because of the concern that, not being a U.S. citizen, he will bail out and flee the country and flee prosecution,” said Parkinson, who suspects Chavez may have already fled the county.
The issue, says Parkinson and dozens of other sheriffs and police chiefs across California and Arizona, is that, while Immigration and Customs Enforcement routinely asks departments to hold prisoners like Chavez until they can take custody of them for deportation, the local law enforcement officials believe doing so will expose them to lawsuits. They cite court cases including the March, 2014, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruling in Galrza v. Szalczyk that held states and localities are not required to imprison people based on ICE "detainer" requests, and that states and localities may be held liable if they participate in wrongful immigration detentions.
It already does!!
i wish i could have a go at him !!! this sickens me
That disgusting wet back should be permanently deleted!
Just how much longer are we going to sit idly by and keep allowing this to happen, America??? We need to step up and take matters into our own hands. When Congress gets back to Washington in two weeks, we need to be waiting for them. The phone calls, faxes, emails and texts don't seem to be getting through to them. It's about time to let them know that the ones who are supporting this criminal behavior and especially toward an innocent two year old child that is all but beaten to death are going to be removed one by one until they start doing their job and using the power they have and stopping all this, starting with Obama and then Boehner and McConnell.
hey dianne i agree with you 100% and i have voted republican for 53 years and i am pissed off and mad as hell. In 2016 i am going to vote against every republican and if that means i vote democratic so be it. Maybe if the same people that gave the republicans the congress and senate, send a lout message and send the republican traitors back home will tell the rest start doing what the people you represent want or go home. Boehner and mc connel has broken every promise they made to the people who put them in power and now we need to tell them that we are mad as hell. The best way to really send a great message is to elect trump he would turn washington upside down.
William - In your search bar, type in "speaker.gov" - -it'll take you directly to his email website. Then, send Boehner a message, telling him exactly what you think of him and why. See if you can get everyone you know to do the same. I do it every week, sometimes 3 and 4 times a week. I don't get a response, but I know he gets the message. If enough of US drive that message home, he might just get discouraged enough to quit on his own.
There's another way to get messages to Congress, through your search bar.. Type in "petition2congress" and have at it; it's free and you can edit, alter, delete, create your own petitions. There are, roughly 40 pages of petitions listed, to pick from, or as I said, you can create your own.
when you say elect Trump I agree ! But you had better be carful what you ask for when you say, vote democrate
Diane, great post...I could not agree with you more! It is high time that we do start taking things into our own hands....if we just sit around waiting for someone to take any meaningful, proactive steps in freeing ourselves from this tyranny, nothing will ever happen! It would be a good thing if these rightffully frustrated police officers who have been prevented from protecting the American public from these low-life scum, would begin to team up with like minded patriots and just take out those violent, amoral @#%&*s whenever the opportunity arises! For the police and the Border Patrol to continue to allow this illegal, lawless Muslim Brotherhood so-called "president" to continue to thumb his nose at our Constitution, the rule of law and common decency is crazy! Firstly, I strongly believe that he needs to be shown the door - at gunpoint, asap! Secondly, it is definately time for patriotic Americans to lock and load, or risk losing our great Republic to these primitive, third world neandrathals! Whenever someone like Chavez is found in OUR country, they need to be taken out...quickly, quietly and completely! It would not be long before word got around that for any of them to cross our borders illegally, and especially to commit crimes and atrocities against OUR citizens would be a swift death sentence! Then, and only then will this disgusting situation change in our favor! If this vile, treasonist administration were to attempt to come against the citizens of this Republic, they would most certainly be faced with a second American Civil War! Thnkyou for your great post and God bless!
WHEN ARE THE "POLICE GOING TO STOP TAKING THESE VICIOUS ANIMALS, ALIVE !!!!!!"....IT IS SO EASY TO "ERADICATE/ANNIHILATE/ NEUTRALIZE" THESE VICIOUS, HORRIBLE, SCUM OF THE EARTH !!!!!......AND CLAIM: "SELF DEFENSE" !!!!!......
Ralph, you are so right! Our police and Border Control agents have got to be feeling the same way as you and I do about this terrible situation! It wouldn't take much for any of them to simply look the other way every so often while some well armed patriot took aim at these vicious felons! You know, it's pretty obvious that what's his name, the President of Mexico, is purposely sending the worst of the worst criminals - murderers, rapists, violent abusers and the like, across our border so that they no longer have to deal with them; and you know that "Caligula", our seditious, Muslim Brotherhood so-called "president", is laughing himself silly about the situation that we the people are facing, as he is tearing down everything that's American! By the way, he most definately needs to go, and by any means necessary! The SOB is America's greatest enemy, after all! God bless!
They're in CA. . . . why didn't police just haul his ass out in a boat, chain him to a bunch of cinder blocks and turn him into fish food?
They would have to face the EPA on water pollution charges ! Not to mention the DFG for trolling for sharks without a license .
