Texas Sheriff Nearly Releases Illegal Alien Child Molester

The near-release of a man from the Travis County Jail who was charged with repeatedly sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl intensified calls Tuesday for Sheriff Sally Hernandez to reverse a new policy that places strict limits on which inmates will be held for federal immigration checks.

The case of Hugo Gallardo-Gonzalez, 31, exposed how incomplete information in booking records nearly led to the release on bond of Gallardo-Gonzalez and led to a flurry of continued condemnation of the policy.

sally_hernandezSheriff’s officials told the American-Statesman and KVUE-TV that jail staff initially denied a request by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain Gallardo-Gonzalez under Hernandez’s new policy because the charge against him, continuous sexual assault, isn’t on the list of several crimes for which she has agreed to cooperate with ICE.

However, officers received additional information about the charge Gallardo-Gonzalez faced prior to freeing him that indicated he should be detained for ICE under the new policy. They then honored the ICE request to detain Gallardo-Gonzalez, who remains in jail.

Republicans who have sharply criticized Hernandez’s policy quickly pounced on the case. Gov. Greg Abbott posted a message on Twitter, declaring — incorrectly — that “Travis Co. Sanctuary Policy set free man charged with sexually assaulting young girl.” He added: “Texas will end this.”

The incident led to a promise by sheriff’s officials to take steps to stop such lapses from happening again.

“The Travis County Sheriff’s office intends to review this matter and consider possible policy modifications to account for similar future issues,” said Maj. Wes Priddy, who supervises jail operations.

Priddy said that, since Hernandez’s policy took effect Feb. 1, there have been no other instances in which jail staff denied an ICE hold they should have placed on an inmate.

Hernandez’s policy calls for the jail to only hold inmates on behalf of ICE if they are charged with murder, aggravated sexual assault and continuous human smuggling.

Priddy said that, although Gallardo-Gonzalez had posted $50,000 bail, authorities were waiting for a GPS monitor to be placed on him before releasing him.

The charge Gallardo-Gonzalez faces doesn’t exactly match any of those on the list, but jail staff reviewed a probable cause affidavit. There, they saw there are aggravating circumstances in his case, and therefore granted the ICE request for the hold, Priddy said.

He was never released from jail.

“We have him in custody, and he will remain in custody,” Priddy said. “It was not immediately apparent” that Gallardo-Gonzalez should be held on an ICE detention request.

Hernandez’s policy on how to handle requests to hold inmates for federal immigration checks has been under fire from Abbott and other GOP lawmakers since she took office in January. Most recently, Abbott followed through on a threat to withhold $1.5 million in state grant funds from Travis County.

Led by state Sen. Dawn Buckingham of Lakeway, Republicans repeated their position Tuesday that Hernandez’s policy threatens public safety. Like Abbott, Buckingham tweeted about the case, saying, “dangerous criminals being let out by (the Travis County sheriff) rather than turned over to ICE. Indefensible.”

“Hear me, Travis County residents,” she said at a brief news conference at the Capitol in which she declined to answer any questions. “Sheriff Sally Hernandez needs to hear your voice about how you disagree with her policies, how you think she’s making Travis County unsafe and how she’s jeopardizing the viability of your community.”

The state Senate has approved a bill by state Sen. Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, that aims to ban so-called “sanctuary cities” by making it a crime for sheriffs to adopt policies like Hernandez’s and by allowing victims of crimes committed by unauthorized immigrants in “sanctuary cities” or counties to sue the jurisdiction, among other provisions.

Every Senate Democrat opposed that measure, but two of them attended Buckingham’s news conference and said afterward that they believe Hernandez needs to make her policy tighter in light of the Gallardo-Gonzalez case.

“That detainer should have been, from my vantage point, honored. So I would ask that the sheriff rethink her policy as it relates to the type of offenses she’s going to recognize,” said state Sen. Royce West, D-Houston, who was joined by state Sen. Carlos Uresti, D-San Antonio.

Both said they still oppose Senate Bill 4 and think cases like Gallardo-Gonzalez’s distract from the more important issues at play, like the potential for racial discrimination in local policing.

    To mindless confused Liberals like Hernandez ( Hmmmm,,Is that not a Latino Name) the Sexual confused immigrants like Gonzales are not illegal sex offenders, they are future voting American “Hands On” child sex educators.
    Golda Meir once said “peace will come when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us.” Peace in America will only come when Liberals love their children and their country, more than they hate and envy successful Conservatives. Allowing these perverts back into society to gain future votes is every bit as dangerous to our children and THEIRS as strapping a bomb onto them and sending them into the crowd.,,,, blowing up the innocent as well as the guilty, even of their own family and fellow Americans. Resist, then arrest them ALL, starting with the traitorous anti-American politicians.

      The immigrant problem that this country is facing is e results of putting politics and cheap labor above the interests of the average working American citizens. Vested interests have for too long held sway over how immigrants were dealt with. Its past time that the politician that are supposed to be representing us started listening to the citizens for a change.

    (Feb 6, GOP USA “Texas sheriff releases 37 illegal aliens that were on ICE detainers”….
    “More than three dozen people suspected of being unauthorized immigrants posted bail and were released from Travis County Jail on the first day of a new county policy limiting cooperation with immigration authorities. Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez’s policy ending blanket compliance with federal immigration detention requests for suspected undocumented immigrants in custody at the county jail went into effect Wednesday. That day, the sheriff’s office declined 196 detention requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. Thirty detention requests were honored, according to the sheriff’s office.”..)

    A week later, today’s article, reflects the danger to a citizenry wherein a newly elected official ushers in a defiant liberal bias into ‘her’ office abetting illegal entry and residency while obstructing justice from other law enforcement agencies. What were the voter’s in that county thinking? How far the liberal mind has fallen wherein they adopt/initiate policies that favor criminal activity at the expense of their law-abiding.

      A good place to certify voting fraud/valid voter registration would be the communities whose elected officials compromise the security and safety of their LEGAL citizenry, and whose initial procedures when taking office actually ENDANGER those who reside there LEGALLY, and whose policies remain determinedly in favor of those who break the law, in this case regarding ILLEGAL entry and establishing ILLEGAL residency.

If Sally does not want to obey the state laws of Texas or the federal laws of the United States she should get another job. In any case, the State of Texas will withdraw money from Travis County and the feds will withdraw money from Travis County. When they do this, which should be within months, Travis County may be unable pay Sally any longer.

    So…auto theft, home invasion, assault, aggravated assault, drug dealing…all those are okay with Miss Sally, I guess? No reason to deport someone who commits those crimes?

    Federal charges need to be filed against every single mayor and/or sheriff who creates and supports these “sanctuary cities”; they are in direct violation of our nation’s laws, and need to be held accountable for endangering the lives and safety of Americans.

    Sheriff Hernandez is pathetically misguided. She is putting her own citizens at risk. It will just be a matter of time before some criminal that she lets out of jail hurts someone. When that happens, she should be charged for being complicit. She should be fired for not following the law. If you commit a crime while here illegally, you rise to the top of the list and gotta go. Build the wall. Enforce the legal path to citizenship. Those here illegally who are just trying to improve their lives and make a decent living, should start the process to stay here legally, pay taxes, learn English, and stay out of jail. Of course they should not be allowed to vote. Public money should not be spent on people here illegally, unless they are following the proper channels to stay.

    So a child molester, not covered by the Sheriff’s original policy, suddenly becomes eligible for turnover to ICE. The question is, what is the controlling moral principle? If other illegal aliens with criminal records are protected, where is the line? While child abuse should be an obvious reason to turn over a suspect, is robbery of a convenience store less invasive? What about breaking and entering? This Sheriff got caught with an inconsistent policy, one that required her to shift gears because some of her friends wanted a child molester punished. Duh! One would think that a female Sheriff would have included the child molesters on her original list of persons eligible to go to ICE.

    Pardon my ignorance, but if we can’t deport these illegal immigrant criminals for whatever reason, why the hell can’t we simply try them in US courts for their crimes and imprison them in a real US jail – not let them loose to commit further crimes or deport them to a country that probably won’t bother to try them for crimes committed in the USA, and from which (as we have seen many times) they will probably sneak back into the USA to commit even more crimes here?

    So every two bit sheriff gets to decide what laws they are or are not going to enforce?

    She should not be fired, she should not be defunded, she should be prosecuted, have her say in court and jailed. Just like anybody else who decides not to follow the law.

    If she wants to alter laws, she can throw her hat in the ring and run for congress

    this is one worthless bent badge that should be put down. There is absolutely no reason for this MORON to be carrying a badge. She is a danger to the safety and security of the public and she is in violation of the very laws she swore to uphold, and is endangering the very people she has sworn to protect. Bad cops are worse than NO cops.

    It’s not a matter of “stupid.” It’s that liberals never consider consequences, only intentions. And they consider their own intentions to be pure, noble, and more enlightened than those of the common herd. So whatever happens as a result of their actions isn’t their fault, but (somehow – this is liberal “logic,” don’t forget) the fault of those terrible rightwingers who oppose the liberals’ noble intentions. Or else they simply deny that anything bad has happened as a result of their actions — and they actually believe this denial, in spite of all evidence to the contrary. Liberals don’t care about reality. Only their “enlightened” and “caring” intentions count.

      Ituser, gentlemanjim seemed to miss the point that the sheriff said she’d abide by the agreement with ICE. So you want her executed for that because the FEDERAL government didn’t say just one case of bringing in someone illegally?

      I think just one case is still a felony and no law enforcement officer ought to dismiss it, but gentlmanjim is trying to imply something not said.

      Hit912, my post above was meant for Ituser. However, to answer your question, the law doesn’t allow that. But the Lubbock senator is introducing a law to change that. Let’s hope that happens soon and is a model for other States.

      Reece. She was only willing to honor the ICE detainer ONCE SHE FOUND OUT the guy was a child rapist.. NOT UNTIL.. SO in essence she was deciding what ICE detainers to honor, and which to not.. ANd as for the “Aggravated sexual assault” DO YOU not think CHILD MOLESTATION COUNTS as aggravated sexual assault??

      Ituser, you and I agree what SHOULD BE on the detainer list and likely we’d even add to the list. There were two different charges, one local and one federal. But whether or not CHILD MOLESTATION COUNTS is aggravated sexual assault is a legal definition. As you know, only our pettifoggers (lawyers) can mess up common sense definitions.

      That’s why I favor the Texas senator’s law and I wish it were nationwide.

      Gentlemanjim, please act like a gentleman and quite being aliterate. Here’s the relevant sentence in the article, “Hernandez’s policy calls for the jail to only hold inmates on behalf of ICE if they are charged with murder, aggravated sexual assault and continuous human smuggling.” In other words, Sheriff Hernandez stated she WOULD honor the ICE hold IF it involved CONTINUOUS HUMAN TRAFFICKING which is part of the FEDERAL requirement. One case could simply be a friend bringing in someone illegally. Sure it should still be a FELONY, but it’s not what you’re claiming.
