Two illegal aliens that came together to America in 2015 pretending to be a family unit and a third one who cam unaccompanied in 2016 were recently released by the Prince George’s County Police Department. They are charged with attempted first-degree murder and other things, after their release they killed Ariana Funes-Diaz and dumped her body into a creek.
Prince George’s County is a “sanctuary” city for illegal aliens. Which is probably why when ICE requested the Maryland police department to hold Fuentes-Ponce and Ernesto Escobar they were instead released without notification to ICE.
“Following the recent arrest of two unlawfully present teens suspected in the violent murder of a young girl in Maryland, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers in Baltimore are again seeking to take custody of the illegal aliens through the ICE detainer process following the Prince George’s County Detention Center’s (PGCDC) failure to cooperate. Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar, both Salvadoran nationals, were previously arrested on May 11, 2018 when they were arrested by Prince George’s County Police Department (PGCPD) for attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges.” ICE stated.
“As law enforcement officers, we must continue to serve and protect the American public and act in the interest of public safety first. These individuals had demonstrated violent criminal behavior before, and because they were released in spite of the lawful detainer, they were afforded an opportunity to take a life.” Baltimore Field Office Director Diane Witte stated.
