Mayor Blames ICE After City Released Illegal Immigrant Who Then Raped 3-Year-Old

Sandy Malone

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said ICE needed to do their jobs better during a press conference about Christopher Puente.

Chicago, IL – An illegal immigrant whom Chicago police released instead of holding for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) went on to rape a three-year-old girl in a McDonald’s bathroom, and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has blamed ICE.

ICE Deputy Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations Henry Lucero said Illinois’ “sanctuary” status made it difficult for federal immigration authorities to find and remove criminal illegal immigrants, the Daily Mail reported.

ICE has said that Cook County, where Chicago is located, denied more than 1,000 detainer requests just in 2019.

“If ICE is complaining, then they should do their job better,” Lightfoot told reporters, according to WLS.

ICE said that 34-year-old Christopher Puente, a Mexican national, has a criminal record that dates back 20 years.

Court records showed Puente was convicted of burglary, forgery, trespassing, domestic battery, and additional related offenses between 2006 and 2018, the Daily Mail reported.

ICE said he was initially deported to Mexico on Dec. 4, 2014 pursuant to an administrative removal order because he was a convicted aggravated felon, WLS reported.

Puente returned to the United States five days later.

He was arrested again after he claimed to be a U.S. citizen and presented a fake birth certificate to border agents at the Brownsville, Texas border crossing, WLS reported

ICE said Puente was charged with falsely claiming citizenship and ordered to appear before an immigration judge.

But he never showed up for court.

The judge ordered Puente removed, in absentia, on March 30, 2017, WLS reported.

He was arrested for theft in June of 2019 and should have been held by Chicago police on a detainer from ICE so he could be deported, but that didn’t happen.

Instead, Puente was free until he was arrested for raping a three-year-old girl in the men’s room at a Chicago McDonald’s, WLS reported.

Police identified Puente through McDonald’s security video and he was later arrested.

He confessed to some of what he had done to the little girl after he was arrested, WLS reported.

Prosecutors said Puente told police “he was f--ked up and thinking dirty” when he pulled the little girl into his bathroom stall, according to the Daily Mail.

ICE once again requested that Chicago police detain Puente on Feb. 20, according to WLS.

The Chicago mayor defended the police department’s earlier decision to release Puente before the little girl was raped.

"They're critical because we have said very clearly we are a welcoming city, a sanctuary city,” Lightfoot said. “Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE on any immigration-related business. And that's affected their ability to conduct immigration raids across the city.”

“But that's exactly our intention,” the mayor added. “We have to make sure our police department is seen as a legitimate force in all our communities."

Robert Guadian, field office director of Chicago Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), blamed lawmakers for the fact Puente was free on the streets when he raped the three year old, the FOX News reported.

“How many more victims must there be before lawmakers realize that sanctuary policies do not protect the innocent?” Guadian asked. “Puente should have been in ICE custody last year and removed to his home country. Instead, irresponsible lawmaking allowed him to walk free and prey on our most vulnerable.”

Perhaps the time will come when the feds start arresting sanctuary politicians. We may be nine months away from that.

Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE on any immigration-related business.

Could it be any more clear? In other words, Chicago will not help ICE to deport convicted criminals who may rape children. And Lori Lightfoot is culpable.

Ya know, people are starting to leave (generally) high tax and high crime states for better ones. After the 2020 census, some poorly-run states like Illinois are likely to lose seats in the House of Representatives due to disproportionate population decline.

That's why they need illegals. Because House seats are based on population, not legal residents.

States that are likely to lose seats after 2020 include:

  • Alabama -1 (from 7 to 6),
  • California -1 (from 53 to 52),
  • Illinois -1 (from 18 to 17),
  • Michigan -1 (from 14 to 13),
  • Minnesota -1 (from 8 to 7),
  • New York -1 (from 27 to 26),
  • Ohio -1 (from 16 to 15),
  • Pennsylvania -1 (from 18 to 17),
  • Rhode Island -1 (from 2 to 1),
  • West Virginia -1 (from 3 to 2).

States that are likely to gain seats after 2020 include:

  • Texas, +3 (from 36 to 39)
  • Florida, +2 (from 27 to 29).
  • Arizona +1 (from 9 to 10),
  • Colorado +1 (from 7 to 8),
  • Montana +1 (from 1 to 2),
  • North Carolina +1 (from 13 to 14),
  • Oregon +1 (from 5 to 6).

Wait a minute... it's ICE's fault the City of Chicago refuses to assist federal authorities with detaining violent criminals, so when the city releases a violent criminal who rapes a 3 year old, the mayor says "If ICE is complaining, then they should do their job better"????

You know what? I agree with her. Take any federal funding that does to Chicago or Cook county, and give it to ICE, so they can hire more agents, and set up several offices in Chicago, including one across from the prison, police department, and mayor's office. That should solve the problem.

Hmm, so they want to allow illegals into the communities to hide from ICE but cry when they commit crimes. Suck it up Illinyork you asked for it. I hope that family moves from there to a state with better laws and better people in charge.

Maybe the feds should start arresting people like Lightfoot who don't obey federal laws? She and her ilk believe they are above the law. Time to show them they are not! When did we become OK with states deciding that federal law didn't apply to them or their citizens?>?

Chicago has been like this for years. On Dec. 2nd. 1978 Andres Lopez, an ILLEGAL MURDERED MY BROTHER. Jim caught this P.O.S. attacking a woman at Belmont &Southport and he pulled the guy off her and he took off running like a coward. While Jim was attending to the woman the guy came back with a 10 inch BUTCHER KNIFE and stabbed my brother in the back and then chest. Jim died within moments. A squad car was driving by and pursued and caught the guy. He wanted to plead to a far lesser charge and with all the evidence we & the States Attorney said NO. He was caught with the knife in his hand with Jim’s blood all over him and the knife plus 10 Witnesses. At trial everything was presented which everyone though he would be convicted. Well it was a trial by Judge and he was found not guilty. In 2004 a book came out called “When Corruption Was King” and we found out that this “judge” was corrupt and he accepted bribes to throw cases. The day before he was to be taken into custody he had a massive Heart Attack and died. My only solice was that I went to his grave and PISSED ON IT before leaving Chicago for good. My brother was a Veteran, Husband and Father to two beautiful little girls.

Dear President Trump: PLEASE stop this insanity before any more of us that ARE American citizens are killed. Cut off all federal funding to all sanctuary states and cities but more importantly, start throwing these politicians who allow this sanctuary shit to continue in prison for obstruction, interfering, aiding and abetting, and if being a colossal asshole is a crime then that too. This MUST stop now! A THREE year old is physically and psychologically scarred for life and the bug eyed mayor wants to blame ICE. No You disgusting piece of shit this is 100% on your back and the rest of you liberal clowns.

It is my opinion that anytime something like this happens, the mayor and anyone else responsible for declaring their city as a sanctuary city and denying ICE access to illegal criminals upon release should be arrested as an accomplice.

The action of the city government leaders is not much better than dumping poison into the city water supply.

No no no sorry lightfoot chicago is a sanctuary city u labeled it yourself and those are the policys along with continuous tax increases statewide that have chicago folks and just illinois peepa in general leaving. This falls on your doorstep. See those who have seen it up close know the whole truth of chicago and the state and left and wont come back and act enjoy watching democrat after democrat whose gangleader is mike madigan accelerate the deterioration while the people keep voting their killers into office. As long as the democrat machine controls chicago and other chunks of the state it wont change. Blaming ICE when you labeled yourself a sanctuary city doeant fly this is typical democrat garbage if something good happens its because of them if bad happens point and blame others. This ia the state thatafter the pratt company shooting a yr ago when straight for gun control labeling legal owners top problem but what many outside of the brief news they may have seen faiiled to make note of was thay the man did own it legally when he bought it but ended up with atleast 1 felony disqualifying his right to own a gun but because illinoia state police revoked his FOID card which is firearm owner identification for illinois residents some states prob have similar some dont point beingwhen yanked his foid they didnt go take his gun away when they knew he had 1 but they didnt take action to get it avept a letter saying please return your gun when convient for u
and receive a buy 1 get 1 big mac coupon.
So he prob weighed that for 7seconds. Lets see give up my gun and not be able to get another or2 for big mac gun it is. Dumb state run by dumbass people.
