(Natural News) Sanctuary cities may be safe havens for illegal immigrants, but liberal immigration policies continue putting the lives of U.S. citizens at risk. It was recently reported that an illegal immigrant living in the Seattle area has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman after pretending to be her Uber driver. The suspect, 34-year-old Israel Ramos-Islas, is now being held on a $750,000 bond.
According to reports, the alleged victim went to an office Christmas party on December 15, in Ballard, WA. Afterward, she and some coworkers went to a bar. From there, she ordered an Uber. The woman went outside to look for her driver and asked several people if they were her Uber.
Phony Uber driver rapes woman
One man, now identified by police as Ramos-Islas, claimed to be her Uber driver and handed her a water bottle. The victim told police she started to lose consciousness in the car, but that she remembered him saying, “I will take you home, but we are going to have some fun first.”
The next thing she remembers, according to reports, is Ramos-Islas on top of her, raping her in a parked car near a bus stop in White Center.
Police have released surveillance footage from her “Ring” doorbell, showing the two approaching her home at 1:45 a.m. Only 30 seconds of footage was captured, but the video feed shows Ramos-Islas pulling her house keys from his pocket and trying to open the door. The victim says after that, she remembers getting inside and going to bed. The next day, she went to Harborview Medical Center for a sexual assault examination.
According to recent reports, prior to being arrested, Ramos-Islas returned to his victim’s home with his wife. The victim called police, who went on to release him from custody. But the following morning, Ramos-Islas was arrested at his lawyer’s office.
Authorities have also recently revealed that Ramos-Islas is a suspect in two other similar cases.
Wave of crime
This is unfortunately not the first time an innocent and unsuspecting American citizen has been harmed by an illegal immigrant. In April 2018, a young woman in the Boston area was raped by an illegal immigrant — and this one actually drove for Uber.
As Fox News reports, 30-year-old Frederick Amfo was an illegal immigrant from Ghana who drove for Uber and was charged with rape. The victim, Emily Murray, says on the way home, Amfo locked the doors and forced her into the backseat, where he raped her.
After being charged with rape, Quincy Court District set Amfo’s bail at just $10,000. If he made bail, Amfo was supposed to have 24 hours to surrender his passport. He made bail and no passport was ever collected. Three days later, authorities concluded Amfo had fled the country.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) say that Amfo should have been under a federal immigration detainer. Local police say they forwarded the detainer request to Quincy Court District, but it appears that the district court did not send that detainer to Norfolk County.
“The court chose not to forward the detainer to Norfolk County, allowing for his subsequent release on bail from custody. This case highlights the potential dangers of policies that prohibit cooperation with ICE,” officials from the agency said in statement. Now, a rapist goes free — all for the sake of liberal politics.
This is not the first time the Left has sacrificed American citizens to advance their agenda, and it certainly won’t be the last. Under far left dogma, no one is safe.
