Irony: Illegal Alien Calls Police About Someone Trespassing, Police Pick Him Up

How ironic is this?

(CNN) Wilson Rodriguez Macarreno and his family were in trouble, so he did what he knew to do — call police for help. About an hour later, he was in ICE custody.

Rodriguez’s detention on Thursday sent shockwaves through the Seattle-suburb and is now garnering national attention from advocates, warning the way authorities handled the case could make immigrants scared to call police to report crimes.

Early Thursday morning, Rodriguez saw someone trespassing on his property in Tukwila, Washington. In the last few weeks, someone had been repeatedly trying to break-in to his home and car.
So, he called 9-1-1.

Police arriving on scene apprehended a trespasser according to Rodriguez’s lawyer Luis Cortes.

After giving officers his ID for what he thought was “report purposes,” police put Rodriguez in handcuffs, his lawyer said. After running his information through the National Crime Information Center database, officers saw he had an outstanding warrant.

Less than an hour after making a simple trespassing call, Rodriguez was headed toward an uncertain future as he was driven to an ICE field office in Seattle for processing. His lawyer says ICE never arrived to pick up his client, so Tukwila police officers volunteered to take him to the ICE field office.

The supposed trespasser was not arrested, as there was no probably cause. Rodriguez, who’s trespassing on U.S. soil, was arrested. Rather ironic, is it not?

Of course, this article, and the starting point at the Seattle Times, has brought on much of the same old same old hand-wringing, whining about it being an administrative warrant (which, shocker, is legal) without judicial involvement, about why those big meanie police officers would dare do the job of law enforcement and involve themselves with a federal warrant, and the old canard about illegals now being afraid to call La Polizia. And, of course, the Tukwila PD has promised to change the way the follow the law to protect illegals.

Rodriguez entered the US from Honduras in 2004, fleeing violence his lawyer says took his brother and a friend. Rodriguez says his brother died from a gunshot to the head and his friend was found chopped to pieces. CNN could not verify these claims.

His lawyer says that ICE did apprehend him in Texas in 2004, but Rodriguez missed his court date — he did not have an address to send the court notice. Cortes says his client has no criminal history.

He illegally entered the nation, was busted, told to report to court, blew the date off, and has now been apprehended. Poor decisions have consequences. As far as it goes, ICE hasn’t released any details on Rodriguez at this time.

Related, Jazz Shaw discusses a case where an illegal alien complains that ICE is, get this, deporting illegal aliens. And, in this case, there’s a bit more to the story about one of these “upstanding” illegals that the media likes to yammer about.

  1. Jeffery says:

    This should teach those illegals not to cooperate with police or report crimes!!

    • gitarcarver says:

      You obviously missed the part where the man had an outstanding warrant.

      Is is your contention that the police should ignore the warrant because he is in the country illegally?

      Or should the man be treated like everyone else when the police check for warrants?

      Once again, because all you have is hate, you hate the fact that a man with a warrant and is part of a continuing crime got caught.

  2. Jeffery says:

    Karma is a Con Man trapped in his burning wreck and an “illegal” there but afraid to rescue him for fear of deportation.

    What would Jean Valjean do?

    • Dana says:

      He was trapped in his burning car because the presence of the illegals lowered his wages, and he had to buy a cheaper car. The accident occurred because the illegal stepped in front of his car, and he swerved to avoid hitting him, and smashed into a tree; had the illegal not been there in the first place, there’d have been no accident.

      It’s pretty easy for people smarter than you to write their own hypotheticals.

  3. Jeffery says:

    Wormtongue the Liar. All you have is hatred. And lies. Hatred and lies. You pathetic creature, you.

    • gitarcarver says:

      Who are you talking to Jeffery?

      Certainly not me, but I’ll answer it and do it without the childish practice of calling you names.

      Face it, you got caught in another lie and more fabrications.

      You hate America and Americans so much that you don’t want the laws of the land applied to criminals.

      All you have is hate.

  4. MrToad21 says:

    How are illegals with no papers (who have been caught & deported) permitted to own property?

    How many parties would have to be complicit in “seeing something but not saying anything”…….for 14 years?

  5. Jeffery says:

    Handcuffing white realtors, employers, landlords etc doesn’t appeal to tRump’s white nationalist base as much as handcuffing Mexican looking people.

    • Some Hillbilly in St Louis says:

      It’s illegal to refuse to sell/lease to someone for said reason. Are you suggesting that would be a good idea?

      • Jeffery says:

        We’re saying that tRump and his Gestapo have no interest in enforcing laws that inconvenience white people. They prefer using strong arm tactics on Mexican-looking people because it satisfies the white nationalist (polite racist, sometimes) segment of his base.

        His base wants to see Mexicans in handcuffs. White businesspeople, not so much.

        His base calls it enforcing the laws. But they are very selective in the laws they insist be forced. Just the other day an “illegal” was given a 1 year dispensation by ICE because his son has leukemia. How does that square with enforcing the law, regardless.

        It’s not that complicated. His base hates brown people.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Angry little black boy logic, yo?

        • Some Hillbilly in St Louis says:

          You’re projecting again.

        • gitarcarver says:

          Jeffery has selective memory.

          When ICE and the DOJ made raids into companies that were knowingly hiring illegal immigrants, the political right cheered.

          When fines and jail time were handed down for companies that knowingly hired illegal immigrants, the political right cheered.

          Because all he has is hate, Jeffery wants to make this issue about race when it is in fact about the law of the land.

          Jeffery hates the Constitution and the law.

    • Actually, I’m good with that if they are breaking federal immigration law. And I’ve said so.

      • Jeffery says:

        TEACH has repeatedly advocating going after the employers, too. Why don’t the FEDs agree? Why don’t Conservatives?

        • gitarcarver says:

          We do agree and the Feds do go after companies that hire illegal immigrants.

          Just last year Asplundh was hit with a $97 million dollar fine for the hiring of illegal immigrants.

          You apparently hate facts that go against your own beliefs.

          All you have is hate.

    “No interest in enforcing laws that inconvenience white people.” Says an ignorant J. It seems it’s usually white people that employ these illegal invaders, so yes, it would inconvenience them.
