ILLEGAL ALIEN Charged With Horrific Rape On Disabled Person RELEASED From Jail…

This week, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials revealed a troubling incident where an illegal alien, arrested for alleged sexual crimes, was released back into the public. The 31-year-old Haitian national, identified as Pierre Lucard Emile, was apprehended by ICE on January 9 after local police in Dorchester had recently arrested him on charges of rape and indecent assault and battery on a developmentally disabled person.

Despite ICE lodging an immigration detainer against Emile, the Dorchester District Court chose not to honor it, leading to his release from jail after the sexual assault-related charges. This disconcerting development highlights a breakdown in the coordination between immigration enforcement and the criminal justice system.

Emile had entered the country illegally at the port of entry in Brownsville, Texas, in December 2022. Following his illegal entry, he was issued a notice to appear before an immigration judge. Subsequently, in September 2023, Boston police arrested Emile on sexual assault-related charges.

ERO Boston, the Enforcement and Removal Operations field office, took action by lodging an immigration detainer with the Dorchester District Court, seeking custody of Emile. However, the court opted not to honor the detainer. Instead, Emile was released from the Boston jail on November 8, 2023, with an electronic monitoring device, pending the resolution of his criminal charges in local criminal court.

Disturbingly, despite the immigration detainer filed by ICE, Emile was released back into the community by the criminal court. ERO Boston initiated an investigation upon learning of Emile’s recent arrest and unlawful immigration status. Upon confirming his presence, ERO Boston arrested him without incident on January 9 in Dorchester.

This incident raises serious concerns about the effectiveness of immigration detainers and the communication between federal immigration authorities and local criminal courts. The case of Pierre Lucard Emile underscores the need for a more cohesive and streamlined approach to ensure that individuals arrested for serious crimes are not released into the public when immigration detainers are in place. As immigration policies and enforcement practices continue to be scrutinized, addressing these gaps in the system becomes imperative to safeguard public safety and maintain the integrity of the immigration process.
