We keep hearing that “No one is above the law.” That constant drumbeat from the left might not ring so hollow if their disregard of Federal Law didn’t lead to stories like this.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is publicly shaming Chicago authorities, claiming that they released a Mexican citizen who later sexually assaulted a toddler at a fast food restaurant. Christopher Puente, 34, was arrested on Feb. 19 for sexually assaulting a 3-year-old despite ICE’s previous request that police continue detaining the previously deported felon. According to a press release on Thursday, Puente had two felony convictions for forced-entry burglary and forgery. Despite his background, Chicago declined ICE’s June 2019 request to detain Puente — raising more concerns about a jurisdiction already under fire for defying ICE. A CBS affiliate reported that Puente confessed to placing “the child on his lap while he was in a restroom stall, pulled off her pants, and covered her mouth when she started calling out ‘daddy daddy.'”ICE: Chicago released previously-deported felon who went on to sexually assault toddler | Fox News
