State of Wa. Shielded Criminal Illegal for Years Before He Committed Murder

'This all could have been avoided so very easil...'

Washington state helped an illegal alien, who local authorities arrested multiple times, evade federal immigration officers, and now he faces charges for murder and 22 other crimes, the Immigration Reform Law Institute reported in a press release.

The King County Sheriff’s Office said Jorge Omar Alcantara-Gonzalez had been arrested in Washington state four times prior to his arrest this June for murdering Ian Eckles.

“I think it’s absolutely disgusting that a form of government could release somebody like that back into the population after committing crimes in a country that they don’t belong in legally,” said Nathan Eckles, Ian’s brother.

“This all could have been avoided so very easily if these cities that have these policies would have just let immigration do their job.”

Eckles went missing on May 18, Alcantara-Gonzalez was identified as the killer on May 27, and a 23-day manhunt ensued.

The illegal alien was finally arraigned on June 19.

Despite Washington state’s defiance of ICE, the immigration agency assisted local law enforcement agencies in tracking down the alleged killer.

The local arrests were for crimes including “driving while intoxicated, theft of a motor vehicle and failure to comply,” on top of his initial crime of illegally entering the United States.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement sent a detainer to the King County authorities after each arrest, so that he could be taken into federal custody and face an immigration hearing for deportation.

In compliance with Gov. Jay Inslee’s executive order that prevents local law enforcement agencies from cooperation with federal immigration authorities, King County ignored every request and released him into the state.

Alcantara-Gonzales has a long history of breaking America’s immigration laws.

He was deported three times, on 20 Nov., 2003, 8 Jan., 2009 and 21 Dec., 2013, ICE reported.

“The family of Mr. Eckles are right to be furious about this. If not for sanctuary policies in Washington state, Mr. Eckles would likely be alive today,” said Dale L. Wilcox, executive director and general counsel of IRLI. “State and local leaders there have a lot to answer for.”
