Feds Refused To Detain Killer Illegal Alien, So Now They’ve Put Him On A ‘Most Wanted’ List

A federal immigration enforcement agency is admitting — in not so many words — that it failed miserably last month when it refused to detain an illegal alien charged with vehicular homicide who is now on the lam.

On Wednesday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) named 19-year-old Edwin Mejia to its “Most Wanted” list.

“ICE will work tirelessly to ensure justice is done in this matter…including to further publicize this case by posting Mejia on ICE Most Wanted List,” ICE director Sarah Saldana said in a statement.

Mejia, a Honduran national who entered the U.S. illegally in 2013, was arrested in Omaha, Nebraska, on Jan. 31 and charged with felony vehicular homicide in the death of 21-year-old Sarah Root. Mejia was street racing with a blood-alcohol level of .241 when he rammed into the back of Root’s SUV.

Eswin Mejia Placed on ICE Most Wanted List

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement this morning regarding the breaking development that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) placed Edwin Mejia (alias: Eswin Mejia) on its Most Wanted list, despite the fact that ICE failed to detain Mejia at the request of local law enforcement in early February.

“This important development underscores the seriousness of the situation, something ICE should have recognized immediately. Mr. Mejia should not need to be on this list — he should be in jail. ICE originally said that Mr. Mejia was not an ‘enforcement priority’ but this morning he was placed on their Most Wanted list. The public still does not have a complete account of what went wrong. It is well past time for ICE to make all the facts known so this never happens again.”
