Illegal Child Molester Arrested
Illegal Alien Child Molester Arrested by SAPD
San Antonio police arrested an illegal alien child molester who has been on the run since 2019. Javier Vasquez, 58, has been charged with a felony charge of “Indecency with a Child” for touching a six-year-old child in a public setting in a public restroom nearly five years ago.
Since Vasquez is an illegal alien, and San Antonio and Bexar County are “undeclared” sanctuaries, it has been difficult to track him down to arrest him for this crime. His family members would call the police with his location, and when the police showed up, he would already be gone.
San Antonio and Bexar County law enforcement officers are not allowed to ask about a suspect’s immigration status because liberals politicians claim immigration is not a local issue. Both jurisdictions are also slow to cooperate with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which deport illegal alien criminals. Furthermore, they do not keep statistics on crimes committed by illegal aliens.
In April 2022, the San Antonio City Council settled a 2018 lawsuit with the state that accused SAPD Chief William McManus and the city of flouting a state law that requires local governments to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. The city spent at least $6.38 million defending McManus for releasing 12 suspected undocumented immigrants found inside a tractor-trailer on the East Side instead of handing them over to federal immigration officials in December 2017.

Meanwhile, Democrat Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar has been playing politics with illegal alien crime. In December 2017, Salazar was criticized by pro-illegal alien activists for sending a letter to Gov. Greg Abbott saying he would continue honoring requests by federal authorities to hold immigrants in the county jail.
However, in December 2023, Salazar questioned the enforcement of Texas Senate Bill 4, which gives local law enforcement the authority to arrest people suspected of being in the country illegally. We’ve got actual violent crime occurring in our county every day. I don’t know if we want to put a whole lot of time into chasing people because they look like they might be here illegally,” said Salazar. But aren’t illegal alien criminals just as bad as domestic criminals?

Once again, liberal law enforcement policies and immigration policies have combined to endanger public safety, in this case, a child. They also have complicated police work in tracking down criminals.
This is “The Second Phase of the Border Crisis,” the negative impact on communities not on the border, all caused because of liberal law enforcement policies at the border and in our communities.
