Illegal alien Fidel Lopez was arrested after he raped his girlfriend’s small Lhasa Apso to death. What makes this case even worse is the 52-year-old was let go after only 60 days due to so-called sanctuary state laws. You won’t believe how sick this leftist state is and the ridiculous way they have perverted justice in this case. Don’t miss this.
Federal immigration officials lashed out at authorities in Multnomah County, Oregon, and local sanctuary laws Thursday after a man residing in the United States illegally was set free upon serving 60 days for raping a dog to death.
“Fidel Lopez, 52, was convicted on April 8 of sexually assaulting his fiancée’s Lhasa Apso mix so forcefully that it had to be euthanized. He received a 60-day sentence but was released immediately because he had already served that amount of time awaiting trial on the February offense,” reports the New York Daily News.
But ICE says the county should have notified the agency at least 48 hours before Lopez was let go so they could apprehend him on immigration violations.
“On April 8, Lopez was convicted of sexual assault of an animal and aggravated animal abuse and sentenced to 60 days in jail with credit for time served,” said Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokeswoman Tanya J. Roman in a statement. “The Multnomah County Jail did not honor the immigration detainer and released him without notice to ICE.”
“If it could have been more, I gladly would have given you more time,” Multnomah County Circuit Judge Angel Lopez told Fidel Lopez, the newspaper said.
Fidel Lopez, who is no relation to the judge, admitted sexually assaulting his fiancée’s dog, a Lhasa apso mix named Estrella, on November 18, 2018. The woman found the dog, whose name means “star” in Spanish, whining and hiding beneath the couch. DNA evidence linked Fidel Lopez to the crime, investigators say.
When she moved the couch, she found blood and trauma to Estrella’s backside, The Oregonian reported. She took the dog to an emergency veterinarian, who had to euthanize the animal due to the internal injuries Lopez inflicted.
“The torture and abuse that Estrella suffered is unimaginable,” Deputy Multnomah County District Attorney Nicole Jergovic said in a news release. However, it was not enough for the leftist losers in Oregon to start a campaign to immediately rescind their status as a sanctuary state.
Maybe more shocking was this illegal had been living in the United States for 22 years doing who knows what, and his leftist public defender’s comments really are disgusting.
“Court records state that Fidel Lopez had no prior criminal history. His defense attorney, Joe Calhoun, said his client had worked at the same place for 22 years. Court records state that Fidel Lopez worked at a pancake restaurant and had a sixth-grade education,” reported Oregonlive.com
“He’s told me that he’s owning up to a mistake he made and accepts that responsibility,” Calhoun said. E-verify would have located this illegal and stopped this rape. You have to wonder what else this migrant may have done but just wasn’t caught.
Americans were outraged over this case.
“What the hell is wrong with you people in Oregon? This illegal alien commits this heinous act, serves his time, then you release him back into the community rather than honoring ICE’s request so we can rid the country of this a$$hole. Pitiful,” tweeted Bruce Clark.

“The dog’s owner won’t have to wait long for vigilante justice now. This is what it’s going to come to everywhere now that people can’t rely on our laws to defend us. People will be taking matters into their own hands. If it was my dog, I sure as hell would be,” said Twitter user “Edmond.”

“This is a serious question – What is the point of this Sanctuary City status for these people? What good does it do for the community at large? Why would you want to shield criminals after they are arrested?” tweeted John Gold.
Sanctuary states really have no basis in law, in fact, they are against federal law. However, for as long as we have the Democratic Party desperate for new voters, they will go to any lengths to make sure as many illegals stay in this country as possible.
It’s that simple. This isn’t about taking the moral high ground, as this rape case and so many other violent murders of citizens by illegals prove, following the law is the high moral ground Democrats and their cohorts don’t give a damn about.
