U.S. Attorney Praises Cooperation of State, Local Law Enforcement Agencies to Combat Illegal Immigration

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – United States Attorney Tim Garrison praised the cooperation of state and local law enforcement agencies in the Western District of Missouri today, as U.S. Attorney General William Barr addressed the problem of sanctuary cities elsewhere in the nation.

“We appreciate the cooperation in this district among state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies,” said Garrison. “We know that, unfortunately, some parts of the country don’t benefit from such cooperation. The partnership between law enforcement officers at all levels throughout the Western District of Missouri is essential to presenting a united front against illegal immigration and the drug trafficking and violent crime often associated with it.”

“Local law enforcement agencies are often our first line of defense,” Garrison added. “We count on them to coordinate with federal authorities who enforce immigration laws aimed at protecting our neighborhoods and keeping our communities safe.”

In a recent example, Independence, Missouri, police officers arrested a citizen of El Salvador, when they received reports of a man pointing a firearm at motorists. After taking him into custody and learning that he had an active immigration detainer, officers turned him over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). THE SUSPECT was recently charged in federal court with being a felon and an illegal alien in possession of a firearm. According to an affidavit filed in support of the Jan. 27, 2020, federal criminal complaint, THE SUSPECT has illegally entered the United States on at least five separate occasions. Garrison noted this case is being handled by a cross-designated prosecutor from the Missouri Attorney General’s office as part of the Safer Streets Initiative to combat violent crime.

“Cooperation between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies is quite simply the most effective way of promoting public safety,” said Robert Guadian, field office director for ICE Chicago, which oversees Kansas City. “Sanctuary city policies simply don’t work. Instead of promoting public safety, sanctuary policies put the lives of our community’s residents at greater risk. The Western District of Missouri has no communities that identify as sanctuary jurisdictions, as such the public is more secure as a direct result of cooperation between law enforcement agencies in this district.”

Garrison cited several more examples of local and federal agency cooperation:

On Aug. 31, 2019, Pleasant Valley, Missouri, police officers arrested a citizen of Mexico, on local charges related to a neighborhood disturbance. At the time of his arrest, THE SUSPECT had a loaded Glock 9mm semi-automatic pistol in his pickup truck. THE SUSPECT, who has illegally entered the United States at least four times, was turned over to ICE-ERO agents and indicted last fall for being a felon in possession of a firearm and for illegally reentering the United States after having been deported.

Kansas City, Missouri, police officers responded to neighbors’ reports of gunshots on Aug. 5, 2018. They discovered that TWO SUSPECT, both citizens of Mexico who illegally entered the United States, had been shooting firearms in their back yard. Officers found a Cobray 9mm pistol, a Walther .380-caliber handgun, and a Sig Saur 9mm pistol at the residence. Officers also found 26 pounds of marijuana inside two black trash bags and more than $35,000 in cash. THE SUSPECTS each pleaded guilty to being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm; ONE SUSPECT also pleaded guilty to possessing marijuana to distribute. THE OTHER SUSPECT was sentenced to four years and six months in federal prison without parole. THE FIRST SUSPECT was sentenced to three years and two months in federal prison without parole.

On Sept. 16, 2018, Riverside, Missouri, police officers arrested ONE SUSPECT for loitering but later learned he had illegally entered the United States from Mexico on five different occasions and had a prior drug-trafficking conviction. THE SUSPECT was sentenced last summer to almost five years in federal prison without parole.

Trump's administration again declaring mission accomplished before doing any actual work.

I guess all the folks here at TKC have been wrong the entire time about KCMO and illegals. According to Trump, nothing to see here.

BTW, where is that big beautiful Mexican paid for wall.

Ann Coulter is right. Trump has been a big fat failure on immigration.

Did you know that every single Democrat candidate endorses free healthcare for illegals?

What were you saying again?

^^^^Good for them! No wonder they have my vote.

Most sanctuary cities are just a myth. KC was NEVER a sanctuary a city. Glad they're standing up to this scare tactic from the current administration.

Time to vote them out.

^^^ Probably the only real understanding of this issue.

Illegal immigration is the only issue that the Trump administration has going for it.

But so far they only have built about 40 miles of border wall. About 3000 more to go. They haven't kept their promises. Obama actually built more wall than Trump.

Thank You Mr. Trump, it's time to bitch slap these cities into obeying the law.

Remo said...

^^^^ Somewhat agree @8:11.

Obeying the law works better for everyone. If you look at these cases, the people captured had very extensive records. All communities are better off with this kind of enforcement.

The Missouri Fifty District representative, will have to spend the remainder of his deadbeat political career traveling all over the planet trying to free all the illegals and return them to Missouri. ... I never did find out who paid for his trip to Texas so he could suck a Kansas resident back into a Kansas Congressional District, which he was never elected to serve. He could become the most expensive money sucker poorly informed Missourians ever elected.

Might as well be. You have illegals all over the metro. If you need help finding them, look at the Escalades in the home depot parking lots.

“Entered the country illegally 5 different occasions.” Well, what occasion was it this time? I’d say American certainly has an illegal immigration problem.
