January 1, ICE Outraged: Virginia Officials Twice Released Illegal Alien Accused of Child Sex Crimes



Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) claims Fairfax County, Virginia officials twice released an illegal alien charged with sex crimes against a minor. This happened despite having a detainer request in place. The 30-year-old Honduran national was apprehended by ICE agents earlier this month at his Maryland residence.

ERO Washington, D.C. Field Office Director Liana Castano stated, “This Honduran noncitizen stands accused of some very serious crimes and represented a threat to the children of the Washington, D. C. area.” Castano criticized local jurisdictions with policies prohibiting cooperation with ICE and honoring detainers, saying they put community members at risk.

The Honduran man’s point of entry into the U.S. is unknown, as he was never inspected, admitted, or paroled by any U.S. immigration official. He was first arrested by the Fairfax County Police Department on July 5, 2023, and charged with felony carnal knowledge of a child aged 13-14 without force. ICE lodged a detainer request the next day, but the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center released him later that month.

Fairfax County, a Democrat stronghold located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, is one of the wealthiest jurisdictions in the U.S. The man was arrested again on February 22 and charged with two additional counts of felony carnal knowledge of a child aged 13-14 without force, as well as two counts of felony indecent liberties with a child under 15. However, the same local detention center released him once more, giving ICE no time to lodge another detainer request.

Deportation officers apprehended the man on April 15, serving him with a notice to appear before an immigration judge. He will remain in ICE custody pending the decision of his removal proceedings. Castano said, “ERO Washington, D. C. will continue to prioritize public safety by apprehending and removing the most egregious noncitizen threats from our neighborhoods.”

The Fairfax County Sheriff’s office did not respond to requests for comment.
