A man caught on body camera footage attempting to kill a California sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop this week had been deported three times before, but local officials had shielded him from ICE in recent years.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said they had lodged four separate “detainer” requests asking local authorities to hold Javier Hernandez-Morales for pickup after he’d been booked for local charges at California jails.
The article goes on to state the following:
Each request was refused, leaving him out on the streets on Sunday, when he tried to kill Napa County Sheriff’s Deputy Riley Jarecki.
“This incident may have been prevented if ICE had been notified about any of the multiple times Hernandez-Moraleswas released from local custody over the last few years,” ICE said in a publicly released statement. “This is an impactful, scary example of how public safety is affected by laws or policies limiting local law enforcement agencies’ ability to cooperate with ICE.”
Hernandez-Morales was killed by Deputy Jarecki in Sunday’s shootout, which was captured on her body camera.
