Illegal alien child-rape suspect was actually released by ICE in 2011

The information below comes from an article at the and the websites of NC Immigrant Rights Project and El Centro Hispano.  I was surprised to read that the  Durham Partnership for Children is one of the agencies sponsoring these organizations. I would suggest that the organizations and universities supporting these groups consider donating some financial aid to help the children impacted by their “support”.

David DeGerolamo

Point 1:

The North Carolina Immigrant Rights Project (NC-IRP) is working to protect the rights of undocumented immigrants which have been put at risk by the various cooperation programs between local law enforcement agencies and Immigration and Customs Enforcement which have led to racial profiling. NC-IRP works toward this goal by representing individuals in the immigration courts on a pro bono basis, as well as organizing and educating against these programs.

Point 2:

Jose Guadalupe Ramirez-Ambriz

Jose Guadalupe Ramirez-Ambriz, 38, is currently wanted on multiple counts of first-degree statutory sex offense with a child under age 13 and indecent liberties with a minor. He is currently on the run and investigators with the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) and the U.S. Marshals’ Fugitive Task Force are searching for the illegal alien.

The Times-News reported:

According to the Sheriff’s Office, detectives initiated an investigation after receiving a report from the Alamance County Department of Social Services. The report came after the DSS received information about the alleged offenses from a school counselor. The alleged victim is a female younger than 13.

As with all crimes committed by illegal aliens, this latest tragedy was 100 percent preventable.

However, this one is doubly maddening due to the fact that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) actually had Ramirez-Ambriz in custody and released him, apparently at the request of an illegal alien advocacy group known as the North Carolina Immigrant Rights Project (NCIRP).

Point 3:

So, why did they [ICE] release him?

Because attorney Marty Rosenbluth, who runs the NCIRP, asked them to exercise the Obama administration’s policy of “prosecutorial discretion,” as Rosenbluth claimed that the Mexican national’s removal “would not serve any interests of the United States.”

Rosenbluth was also concerned that if Ramirez-Ambriz and his girlfriend (who was arrested with him) were deported, their four children and whether they “will be able to adapt, as they have never been outside of the U.S. They are also concerned that they will not be able to afford adequate healthcare due to the low wages and high unemployment in Mexico.”

Follow the Money:

The NC Immigrant Rights Project can accept tax deductible donations through its 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor, El Centro Hispano.

El Centro Hispano (ECH) is a 501 (c) (3) grassroots community based organization dedicated to strengthening the Hispanic/Latino community and improving the quality of life of Hispanic/Latino residents in Durham, Carrboro, Chapel Hill and surrounding areas. We accomplish our mission through service, education and community organizing.

Our budget of $900,000 dollars comes from private foundations, local government, state government, grants, donations and revenue generated from some programs. The Triangle Community Foundation, the Stewards Fund, the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, Hispanics in Philanthropy, the Durham Partnership for Children, and Duke University are among the past and present supporters of El Centro Hispano.

Ongoing and upcoming fundraising events include: the 20th Anniversary Gala, Zumbathon, Gala Graduation, Health Fair and Spanish Language Institute.
