LFC believes that the United States is a sovereign nation, a Constitutional Republic, a nation of laws, and unabashedly supports the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. We were very disappointed when Commissioners Troy and Hamercheck opted not to support Commissioner Cirino’s resolution expressing support for ICE. It concerns us that two of our current Lake County Commissioners fail to understand their role in protecting the citizens of Lake County. Shame on them!
Below is a Cleveland.com article sent to us by Lobbyist Elliot detailing a local, liberal, anti-American judge who disregards the safety of Ohio citizens, violates his oath to defend the U.S. Constitution, and seems hell-bent on destroying our Republic – one illegal alien at a time.
This judge is violating Title 8, Section 1324 of the U.S Immigration Law – Aiding and Abetting Illegal Aliens. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1324
Shame on him for picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce. We want to remind this recalcitrant judge that Concord Township has already lost one of our citizens because of the horrendous actions of an illegal alien that our Sheriff’s Department had in custody before the crime was committed. LFC was told that he had to be released to comply with our laws on properly detaining someone, regardless of legal status.
When we read about anyone else choosing the rights of illegal aliens over U.S. citizens, we will call them all out. Isaiah 5:20
Federal judge in Cleveland threatens ICE with contempt if it deports man he released from jail in criminal case
U.S. District Judge James Gwin (Clerk of Courts)
CLEVELAND, Ohio — A federal judge threatened to hold ICE agents in contempt of court if they tried to deport a Painesville man he ordered freed on bond after he pleaded guilty to illegally re-entering the United States from Mexico.
U.S. District Judge James Gwin said during a bond hearing Wednesday for Cesar Veloz-Alonso that he didn’t think the 39-year-old construction worker, who was deported four previous times in the past two decades, was a flight risk or a danger to the community.
Gwin also said he believes that federal law gives him the authority to grant a bond, and that authority trumps laws allowing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to hold a person already ordered removed from the country and deport them before their criminal case is decided.
In other words, the judge said his ruling should override any action ICE plans to take, since he still oversees Veloz-Alonso’s criminal case. His ruling is not dissimilar to what other judges have done nationwide, though there is not clear legal authority on this issue.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Danielle Angeli at Wednesday’s hearing that her office has no control over ICE, which is part of a different department, and that agents would immediately take Veloz-Alonso into custody upon his release and likely send him back to Mexico. Veloz-Alonso is not scheduled to be sentenced until Jan. 17 and Gwin, a 1997 appointee of President Bill Clinton, said he was inclined to dismiss Veloz-Alonzo’s criminal case if he was deported before then.
