A Multnomah County Judge in Oregon is accused of helping an illegal immigrant escape ICE agents as they waited for the previously deported criminal outside of the court.
They believe the judge, Monica Herranz, let the criminal, Diddier Salazar, sneak out of a side or back door while the agents were waiting on the other side.
Salazar was presented to the court on account of a DUI charge. He’s already been deported once and crept back into the USA undocumented and illegally again.
The judge who is said to have helped him received really bad news – the kind of news that puts your career as a judge to an END!
There’s an ongoing investigation looking into ethical violations and criminal law violations. If she’s found guilty of either, then she could lose her law license which I believe removes her from the position of being a judge and prohibits her from returning to law practice.
The U.S. Attorney in Oregon believes a judge may have helped an undocumented immigrant elude ICE agents after he exited through a side door of her courtroom.
While Diddier Salazar was entering a plea for a DUI case in January in front of Multnomah County Judge Monica Herranz, immigration agents were waiting for him outside the main door. He never showed.
Every courtroom in the facility has three doors, according to CNN: the public entrance, the one the judge uses, and one that is used to ship inmates to jail.
The top federal prosecutor in the state finds it troubling that Judge Herranz allowed this to happen. Herranz is on the Oregon Hispanic Bar Association board of directors, according to Willamette Week.
“I was troubled because, on the face of it, what I heard sounded like potential federal criminal law violations and/or ethical violations,” U.S. Attorney Billy Williams told the newspaper. “Generally, we’re talking about obstruction of justice.”
The illegal immigrant criminal was eventually scooped up by ICE agents at a later court date. How many court dates does this guy have? You’d think if someone was an illegal immigrant that they might lay low for a while and stay off the radar. This guy doesn’t sound too smart. I’ll respect an illegal immigrant who finds a way to beat the law because that shows intelligence and they’re not a criminal.
But if you sneak into America and the only thing you do is commit further crimes, then ADIOS FELICIA!
If you’re a judge, then why would you help an illegal immigrant CRIMINAL avoid deportation? The guy was deported once already, send him packing and let him figure it out.
On top of that, why not enter the country LEGALLY and not ever have to worry about ice knock, knock, knocking on your door?
You know what I’m thinking? I think the judge knows him personally. Maybe he shows her a good time at night. Wink wink.
