We’ve lost track of how many cities have declared themselves “sanctuary cities” that will shield illegal immigrants from ICE, but whatever the number, it’s too many.
The Washington Times reports that Middlesex County, New Jersey, released an illegal immigrant in its custody who was charged this week with a triple homicide.
Illegal immigrant released by 'sanctuary' charged with triple murder: ICE https://t.co/IKm90yPeU6

Luis Rodrigo Perez stands accused of being the gunman in a shooting spree last week that claimed the lives of two men and one woman, at two different homes.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it tried to deport Perez after he was arrested on domestic violence charges in Middlesex County, New Jersey, last year. But the county, which has a non-cooperation policy with ICE, refused to alert the feds when it released Perez in February of this year, ICE said.
“Had ICE’s detainer request in December 2017 been honored by Middlesex County Jail, Luis Rodrigo Perez would have been placed in deportation proceedings and likely sent home to his country — and three innocent people might be alive today,” said Corey Price, acting ICE executive associate director.
A triple gun homicide ought to outrage progressives … but this guy was just an immigrant looking for a better life in America. What to do?
"Feds say three people would be alive today but for sanctuary policy"

Democrats call this progress and normal people would call it a senseless and avoidable murder that could have been prevented. https://t.co/6Xshi7qmkF

because of course he was……Sactuary cities need to be made culpable if they decide to release immigrants back into the community for high crimes like murder, rape, etc. you either hold them, or you have some skin in your decision. https://t.co/CqJBxSOlIF

The families of the victims should sue the county. The DOJ should also charge the county with accessory to murder. These sanctuary areas should be held accountable when they assist a person with a crime by going against law enforcement.

The leaders of the Sanctuary city should be held personally liable. Sue their asses off.

Almost certainly. That would shut down any discussion quickly.
