Illegal Alien Arrested by New Rochelle Police for Child Rape Freed by Westchester County Despite ICE Detainer

Written By: Robert Cox

NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Rony Rosario Ramirez is an illegally present Guatemalan national. He was first encountered by Border Patrol agents June 27, 2009, after being arrested by local Texan authorities. On July 13, 2009, Rosario was ordered removed by an immigration judge in Los Fresnos, Texas. He was removed to Guatemala July 22, 2009. This according to officials from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

On February 14th, ICE became aware that Rosario had re-entered the country illegally after he was taken in local custody for felony rape charges in New Rochelle, NY.

“Rony D. Rosario-Ramirez, aged 26 of this city, was charged with Rape 3rd degree on February 14th at 4 a.m. and held for arraignment,” said New Rochelle Police Captain Cosmo Costa.

Third degree rape is having sexual intercourse with someone who was incapable of consenting, typically a minor.

ICE lodged a detainer with local authorities February 19th,  but the active detainer was not honored, and he was released on bond from the Westchester County Jail on February 25th.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations deportation officers assigned to the ERO New York’s Newburgh Sub-Office arrested Rosario-Ramirez on March 14.

“He was released from the Westchester County Jail, with an active detainer due to Westchester County’s Immigrant Protection Act,” said Rachael Yong Yow Public Affairs Officer, ICE New York.

“This man with pending rape charges in Westchester, was released back into the unsuspecting community as the local authorities were prevented from honoring our detainer because of their new immigrant protection act,” said Thomas R. Decker, field office director of ERO New York. “Let me make this clear, we are not arresting law abiding legal immigrants, we are charged by Congress to arrest those who are in this country illegally, breaking the laws of this nation, keeping our top priority on criminal aliens and removing the aliens who are threatening our communities.”

“Rosario was taken into ICE custody March 14 and is currently pending removal from the United States”, said Yong Yow.
