Immigration officials confirmed to Breitbart Texas that the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office released the criminal alien who allegedly assaulted two women in Portland, Oregon after an immigration detainer requested he be held for deportation. Earlier this year, the sheriff said that turning criminal aliens over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers damages “community trust.”
After being released by Sheriff Mike Reese’s jailers in December 2016, Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, went back into the community and allegedly raped one woman and assaulted a second, both at knifepoint. Martinez allegedly broke into the home of a 65-year-old woman, tied her up, held her at knifepoint and raped her, Breitbart Texas reported.
Following his alleged attack on the 65-year-old woman in her home where she gave him her Prius to get him to leave, police responded to a call about a man attacking a woman in the basement of a parking garage below a building. There, police discovered Martinez allegedly sexually assaulting another woman and holding her at knifepoint. Martinez fled on foot and officers chased him through a neighborhood, capturing him in a nearby apartment.
Officials with ICE confirmed in an email response to inquiries from Breitbart Texas that Sheriff Reese’s office arrested Martinez and had him in custody in their jail on December 7, 2016. Immigration officers immediately “lodged an immigration detainer against him at that time requesting that the agency be notified prior to his release,” ICE spokesperson Virginia Kice stated. “However, despite the detainer, local authorities released Mr. Martinez back into the community the following day without providing any notification to ICE.”
