Sanctuary state polices endanger the lives of law-abiding citizens, creating an environment that encourages and fosters the deadly and criminal impulses of predators who are in the country as invading illegals.
If an example is needed, consider Esequiel Medina-Vasquez. The 51-year-old, twice deported illegal invader tried to forcibly kidnap a-year-old girl walking home from school last week. There’s also the deputy and father of three who was slaughtered by an illegal alien a few weeks ago.
Fortunately, this alien was arrested thanks to the efforts of the intended victim and some Good Samaritan bystanders.
The Seattle Times outlined the charges:
A 14-year-old girl was walking home from school Wednesday along Southwest 320th Street in Federal Way when she saw a dark pickup drive past her, make a U-turn, and drive past her again, stopping ahead of her at 25th Avenue Southwest.
The driver got out of the pickup and approached the girl, gesturing for her to come to him and speaking to her in Spanish, which she didn’t understand.
The girl told the man no and crossed 25th Avenue Southwest, walking in front of his pickup. The man then ran up behind the girl, hooked his arm around her neck and began pulling her toward the open passenger door of his truck.
The girl was able to break free and ran home, where she told her parents what had happened. They called 911.
When she was interviewed by police, the girl was described as hysterical and sobbing uncontrollably. She had a red mark on her neck and her necklace was broken during the incident.
Meanwhile, a couple who had witnessed part of the interaction between the man and girl followed the pickup to a grocery store.
The man confronted the pickup driver, who admitted he didn’t know the girl before he drove off without buying anything. The couple later provided police with a photograph they had snapped of the pickup, which included the vehicle’s license-plate number.
Based on the license-plate number, police determined that Medina-Vasquez is the registered owner of the pickup.
Police also obtained video-surveillance footage from the grocery store that showed the confrontation. A detective created a photo montage, and the girl selected Medina-Vasquez’s photo from the lineup, the charges say.
Federal court records show Medina-Vasquez, a citizen of Mexico, was deported from Arizona in 2007 and from Chelan County in Eastern Washington in 2014.
After he was deported from Washington, King County prosecutors say he was again arrested in 2017 for entering the country illegally, but the charging documents don’t say where he was arrested.
So, here is a child predator, who has found an easy sanctuary in Washington, thanks to democrat policy. What if the girl hadn’t freed herself? What sop would liberals offer to the victim’s parents?
Do Americans really need any more of these sorts of incidents before they finally stand up and demand the end of sanctuary and open borders?
