Near the end of January 2017 Portland ‘s Mayor Ted Wheeler released a statement about his city’s sanctuary status that said in part, “Under my leadership as Mayor, the City of Portland will remain a welcoming, safe place for all people regardless of immigration status.”
I wonder how the 65-year-old woman brutally raped by deported 20-times criminal Sergio Jose Martinez or the woman he attacked in a garage the same day feel about the Mayor’s statement declaring Portland a sanctuary city.
As reported by TV Station KGW, Sergio Jose Martinez, 31 was arrested on July 24th. He’s accused of breaking into a 65-year-old woman’s home, raping her and stealing her car, assaulting another woman and running from police.
Per court documents filed in March 2017, Martinez has been a transient in the Portland area for more than a year and has been deported 20 times. I wonder if 20x is some kind of record.
According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an immigration detainer for Martinez was filed with the Multnomah County asking authorities to notify them before releasing Martinez to allow ICE to take him into custody, the detainer was ignored and he was released into the community and authorities did not notify ICE.
Earlier this year, Multnomah County leaders and Sheriff Mike Reese wrote a letter to the community saying, “The Sheriff’s Office does not hold people in county jails on ICE detainers or conduct any immigration enforcement actions.
“Prior to the July 24 arrest, Martinez’s criminal record shows a felony conviction for burglary and three misdemeanor convictions for battery, theft, and obstructing a public officer. The court document also said he told investigators in March that he has a long history of using methamphetamine and was currently using on a daily basis.
With his latest crime, Martinez adds first-degree kidnapping, first-degree robbery (two counts), second-degree assault, first-degree sex abuse, first-degree sodomy and first-degree burglary to his track record…
