Ten-Times Deported MS-13 Gang Member Released in Sanctuary City Kills Girlfriend in Front of Their Daughter, Then Commits Suicide

Herbert Nixon Flores was an illegal criminal alien and a member of the notoriously violent MS-13 gang. He has an extensive 30-year criminal record – burglary, illegal entry, concealed weapon, domestic violence, vandalism, transportation of a controlled substance, driving under the influence, resisting arrest, etc. He has been ordered removed and physically deported 10 times.

This case is just one of the many examples of illegal re-entry of deported criminals that illustrates the importance of border security and interior enforcement.

But Los Angeles County is a sanctuary jurisdiction with policies that prohibit cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), including a policy to ignore ICE detainers. ICE issues a detainer and warrant when it has probable cause to arrest an inmate who is already in the custody of a local jail; this notifies the jail that ICE intends to take custody of the alien and authorizes the jail to hold the individual for a brief period for ICE.

As recently as September 2020, a detainer was issued for Flores to be turned over to ICE, when he was in custody of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) following his arrest on a charge of domestic violence with injury. Nevertheless, the LAPD released Flores, giving him the opportunity to continue to commit crimes in his community and surrounding communities – and he did.
