U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as predicted by this blog, has extended the administrative amnesty to illegal alien criminals. Of course all illegal aliens are criminals, but by criminal this time I mean illegal aliens who have committed crimes unassociated with their illegal status. This time ICE has released an accused child molester. And get this, because he had a child he needed to provide for, and perhaps molest as well.
Of course the accused illegal alien cut off his ankle tracking bracelet and has fled to parts unknown.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released an illegal immigrant and alleged child rapist — who is accused of incest — because he has a child who is a U.S. citizen and has no prior criminal convictions or immigration violations.After being released, the suspect, Amado Espinoza-Ramirez, escaped his ankle bracelet. He skipped out on his next immigration court hearing and is now a fugitive from justice, free in the United States.ICE’s explanation for Espinoza-Ramirez’s release is part of a press release by Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas. The Judiciary Committee has oversight over immigration policy.
Smith was moved to act following a report from The Daily Caller on Espinoza-Ramirez, who was picked up in Chicago and ultimately charged with 42 counts of predatory sexual acts. On Sept. 2, ICE took custody of Espinoza-Ramirez, releasing him with an ankle bracelet monitor later that same day.
The suspect failed to show up for his scheduled hearing on Nov. 18. ICE would provide no information on how he might have maneuvered out of the bracelet.
ICE issued a statement to Smith that was identical to one quoted in TheDC report, except for one additional sentence: “The decision to release Mr. Espinoza-Ramirez from ICE custody was made based on the fact that he had no prior criminal convictions, no prior immigration violations, and is the parent of a U.S. citizen child.”
It was not only inevitable that ICE began extending the amnesty to illegal alien criminals, but obvious from the start as illegal alien criminals were benefiting from the begining from the amnesty.
