CATCH, RELEASE, REPEAT: Fairfax County Released Honduran Charged With Sex Crimes MULTIPLE Times; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.24.24

According to a Fox News report, Fairfax County, Virginia officials ignored a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer request for a Honduran national charged with sex crimes against a child in Virginia.

The Honduran migrant, who is not a citizen, was twice caught and twice released by Fairfax County.

“This Honduran noncitizen stands accused of some very serious crimes and represented a threat to the children of the Washington, D.C. area,” ICE said. “When local jurisdictions have policies in place which prohibit them from cooperating with ICE ERO and from honoring our lawfully issued detainers and administrative warrants, they put the suspects, law enforcement officers, and most importantly, the members of our local communities at risk.”

From Fox News:

ICE said that it was unknown when and where exactly the Honduran national originally entered the U.S. The agency said the man was arrested and released multiple times on charges of sex crimes with a child.

Virginia’s Fairfax County Police Department first arrested the man on July 5, 2023, and charged him with felony carnal knowledge of a child 13 to14 years of age, without force, according to the federal agency.

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) placed an immigration detainer against the man the following day. The Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, however, “did not honor” the ERO’s request and released the man from custody on a $10,000 bond on July 10, 2023.

Fairfax County police arrested the man again in February and charged him with two additional counts of felony carnal knowledge of a child 13 to14 years of age without force, and two counts of felony indecent liberties with a child less than 15 years of age.

Fox News border correspondent Bill Melugin shared the information on X, saying “ICE says Fairfax County, VA ignored their detainer request on a Honduran illegal alien charged with sex crimes against a Virgina minor, and released him without notice on bond. He was then arrested again and charged w/ more sex crimes against a VA child. ICE says Fairfax County then released him again, the same day, before ICE had time to put in a detainer request. D.C. based ICE deportation officers found him this month & arrested him at his home in Bladensburg, Maryland on 4/15.”
