You may have seen an Amber Alert on Friday detailing that a 6-year-old
girl had been abducted by her father from her home in Bridgeport,
Connecticut and her mother had been stabbed and killed, while another
woman suffered injuries. Police chased down the subject and caught
him on Interstate 99 in Benner Township, Pennsylvania. The little girl
suffered minor injuries in the pursuit. The suspect, Oscar Hernandez,
is an illegal immigrant. Worse, he had been previously deported.
Federal immigration officials said Hernandez is a citizen of El Salvador
and had been previously deported on Nov. 27, 2013. He has prior felony
convictions including assault and threatening. U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement had placed a detainer on him, an agency
spokesman said in a statement.
Despite such horrid crimes, several cities (and now states) are seeking
sanctuary status to harbor illegal immigrants like Hernandez.
