Federal
immigration officials lashed out at authorities in Multnomah County,
Oregon, and local sanctuary laws Thursday after a man residing in the
U.S. illegally was set free upon serving 60 days for raping a dog to
death. Fidel Lopez, 52, was convicted on April 8 of sexually
assaulting his fiancée’s Lhasa Apso mix so forcefully that it had
to be euthanized. He received a 60-day sentence but was released
immediately because he had already served that amount of time
awaiting trial on the February offense. But ICE says the county
should have notified the agency at least 48 hours before Lopez was
let go so they could apprehend him on immigration violations. “On
April 8, Lopez was convicted of sexual assault of an animal and
aggravated animal abuse and sentenced to 60 days in jail with credit
for time served,” said Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
spokeswoman Tanya J. Roman in a statement. “The Multnomah County
Jail did not honor the immigration detainer and released him without
notice to ICE.” ICE picked up Lopez at home Thursday and served him
a notice to appear, the agency said, and he will be taken to the
Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma “pending immigration
proceedings.”
