It’s a sad reality that there are people in America determined to keep our borders open at any cost. Even more disturbing is their primary motivation–increasing the number of Democratic voters.
The Left doesn’t care about the negative effects open borders and illegal immigration have on the US so long as it helps them stay in power. Because of this, we’ve seen a rash of crimes committed by these protected illegals, and the latest will have you fuming at the sanctuary policies put in place by the radical Left.
As reported at the Daily Mail, a Mexican man who’s been deported 20 times has been convicted of 10 counts, which includes rampant sexual abuse.
On Friday, 31-year-old Sergio Jose Martinez, was sentenced to 35 years in prison in Oregon after pleading guilty to kidnapping, sexual assault, sodomy, and several other crimes.
Even more enraging is that throughout the trial, Martinez smiled, as after he was sentenced and being escorted from the courtroom, he looked at two of his victims’ relatives and said, “See all you guys in Hell.”
Martinez assaulted two women on July 24. The first attack occurred in the morning, when he climbed through the open window of a 65-year-old woman. With a metal rod in tow, Martinez told the woman to get down on the ground. He then bound and blindfolded her, threatened to kill her, and then sexually assaulted her.
After he was finished, he stole her purse and car. The victim was able to get to her neighbor’s house, where she called police, who then located the vehicle and put it under surveillance. Unfortunately, while they waited for Martinez to return to the vehicle, he was already after his next victim in a parking garage.
This time, he was wielding a knife as he approached the woman and made her get into her car. Pretending to comply with his orders, the woman tried to run away, but was quickly caught and had her head slammed on the ground repeatedly by Martinez as a result.
The woman was able to shout for help and a passerby approached the scene, which prompted Martinez to flee on foot after failing to get his victim’s car to start.
During sentencing, two relatives of one of the victims, and one of the victims herself, spoke, and the entire time Martinez grinned, showing no remorse.
A brother of one victim told Martinez, “Sergio, no sentencing is enough. I rather you rot in Hell.”
Martinez was able to avoid a longer sentence by pleading guilty to 10 counts, including first-degree burglary, sodomy, sex abuse, kidnapping, robbery, and second-degree assault.
Making this entire ordeal worse is the role Oregon’s sanctuary state policies, which facilitated his crime. Martinez had been freed from jail in Portland a week before the attacks. This, despite a request from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement for the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office to hold him so the agency could take him into custody.
Oregon became America’s first sanctuary state when it adopted a law in 1987 preventing law enforcement from detaining people who are in the United States illegally but haven’t broken other laws.
These insane and anti-American policies often see violent criminals who’ve been deported numerous times let out on our streets, instead of being handed over to ICE like they request. That’s because left-wing policies and “principles” are more important than complying with federal law or keeping citizens safe. Martinez is hardly the first illegal allowed to roam the streets and assault Americans, and it’s a certainty he won’t be the last.
