Suppose you got drunk, jumped in your car and cause an accident that kills one and on top of that, you flee the scene. What do you suppose would happen to you? You’d get to spend some quality time behind bars. If so, you have this misfortune of being an American citizen and not a privileged illegal alien in Denver, Colorado. Illegal alien Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda, caused a man’s death in a hit and run accident.
He is being held on bail of $25,000 dollars. Once that’s paid, he is free to go. ICE has filed a detainer on him but the police in Denver do not honor detainers for ICE, even though one has been filed. Once he is back on the street, he can disappear from sight and will never pay for his crime unless he is caught killing someone else.
According to KDVR, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has placed a “detainer” on Zamarripa-Castaneda, but the Denver Sheriff’s Department refuses to honor ICE detainers.
ICE detainers are used by the immigration agency to request that a local prison hold a criminal illegal alien until federal immigration agents can come to pick up and detain the illegal alien. In sanctuary cities, like Denver, however, ICE detainers are not honored and criminal illegal aliens are released back into the public.
Sanctuary cities like NYC have the same type of system, because Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn’t consider DUI a violent offense. They also talk the illegal into pleading to a misdemeanor and then they drop the felony charge. How often do they do that for an American? Sometimes you feel like an outsider in your own country. Who will be the next Katie Steinle? Instead of a gun, it might be a car with a very drunken person driving.
Can I register somewhere as an illegal alien?
