Boston, Massachusetts, freed a Haitian illegal alien suspected of raping a disabled person even after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) asked that he be detained.

The Haitian citizen first entered the country in Brownsville, Texas in December 2022, where he was ordered to appear before a Department of Justice immigration judge in Boston. Then in September 2023, Boston police arrested the foreign national for rape and assault and battery on a developmentally disabled person.

“[Enforcement and Removal Operations] Boston lodged an immigration detainer against the Haitian citizen, but the Dorchester District Court chose not to honor it and released him from jail after his arrest on the sexual assault-related charges,” a press release from ICE reads. “The court did not honor the immigration detainer, and the noncitizen was ultimately released from the jail in Boston, where he had been held since his arrest …”

ICE detained the illegal alien on January 9th, noting that “he will remain in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody pending an upcoming hearing before a DOJ immigration judge” and that following the adjudication, “ERO Boston will seek his removal from the United States.”

ICE ERO made over 170,000 administrative arrests in fiscal year 2023, nearly a 20% increase over the previous year. The figure includes 73,822 illegal aliens and noncitizens with a criminal history, with over 33,000 charges or convictions for assault, another 1,713 for homicide-related offenses, and 1,615 arrests for kidnapping. ICE ERO states that it removed 3,406 known or suspected gang members, as well as 139 known or suspected terrorists.

The arrest by ICE ERO comes in the midst of an unprecedented surge of illegal aliens into the United States, with an astonishing 10 million crossing the border since Joe Biden took office. November 2023 set a new record for southern border encounters, with nearly a quarter million foreign nationals attempting to enter the United States.

The increased figures include a record-breaking number of Chinese nationals and a 1,000% increase in illegal immigration from Afghanistan, Ethiopia, and the Dominican Republic, among other countries.

Border security and mass illegal immigration are set to become key issues of the presidential election, with multiple public opinion polls finding that over 60% of respondents do not approve of President Biden’s handling of the border.
