Illegal Immigrant in Deadly Hit-and-Run Crash Bonds Out of Jail, Avoids ICE
An illegal immigrant charged in a deadly hit-and-run crash bonded out of a
Colorado jail and avoided detention by federal immigration agents over the
Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda, 26, fled the scene of an accident on Interstate
70 involving a tractor-trailer that caught on fire last week, leaving the
driver to die, according to the Denver Police Department.
The Denver County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Zamarripa-Castaneda
posted a $25,000 bond on Saturday and was released from Denver’s Downtown
Detention Center at 5:28 p.m. The law enforcement agency said although the
department alerted ICE in response to a request for release notification
it received, that alert did not occur until 6:33 p.m.
Less than two hours afterwards, ICE deportation officers arrived at the
sheriff’s office to have Zamarripa-Castaneda transferred to ICE custody,
only to be told that he had already been released.
On "America's Newsroom," Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew
Napolitano said it's "inconceivable" that any bail was set at all, because
there was a death involved and Zamarripa-Castaneda fled the scene.
"It was profoundly wrong to give bail at any amount to a person who's a
danger to the society," he explained. "They really have to find him now."
He noted that this did not occur due to Denver's sanctuary city policy,
but instead because of a "breakdown in communication."
"This is a sheriff who did want to put this guy in federal custody,
because the sheriff disagreed with the bail," Napolitano said. "He had no
choice but to honor it. He didn't want this guy on the streets. Now he's
loose on the streets, probably to drive a motor vehicle again."
The Denver County Sheriff's Office said in a statement, "This is
unacceptable and the sheriff has ordered an immediate internal review to
determine why established notification processes did not take place before
Zamarripa-Castaneda was released."
