"You that we have yet another story out of Montgomery County to share this one has to do with forty eight year old Louise Freddie Hernandez moralis a was arrested and accused of molesting an eleven year old girl and he is now out on bond despite the fact that there was an immigration detainer issued by ice and this is curious because we were told that McCumber county even though they didn't have a big fan fair in a big press conference about a patting themselves on the back about how wonderful virtues they work but we were told that they have modified their policies and they would in fact be reluctantly cooperating with ice on certain issues let's get to the bottom of this joining us right now is the Baltimore acting field office director for eyes Francisco madrigal Sir thank you for joining us thank you so help me out here to do it are are you having getting cooperation right now from ice we were told that if you have a in an official detainer that you would have access and you would be able to process these individuals what happened in this case why I think we might want to find out a little bit if your lawyer if there is an indication that conveyed in the U. modifying that policy and in the way we are let's understand that is is believed to be the head of corrections immigrants Downey would determine under certain conditions whether it's you are a fully cooperating with vice officers on getting H. you know when when the eight fifteen fell toward a cleaner it would contact us in the fight figure according to their own assessment you know whether we should be allowed in north valley for crimes people are and orderly so this is just based on the subject this objective and this sort of policy modifications are really not policy reforms are you from originally the public safety round cation for that here I would like to address something else so you mentioned the individuals out on bond I thought should worry about this successfully locate the individual in Virginia my counterpart in the Washington field office on the other side of town with forever to send the ID her cases they were working on to see if they could organised realizing it was it was a serious case we'll be live on their jewel and left him without incident this morning so one shop shoot them in the washing well that's great news so so this person now is in custody and he had that's interesting that he across state lines and he was he was caught in Virginia and I wonder if the terms of his bond allow him to cross state lines that that would be worth looking into I the so so let me just be clear on this your understanding now of how men come recounting is handling cases like this is that it comes down to the subjective evaluation of of people in the corrections facility whether they will pick up the phone and notify you or whether they will cooperate with you were allow you into the building it's just on a case by case basis they will determine whether the whatever suspect is worthy of of of this cooperation or not or actually just recently conveyed to us and we're waiting to see how that works out playing out there was a case for another sure stuck with them during the last week of October dad we were able to fit in custody in your salad forks in jail now worked out well we are hopeful after I could not the place but you know based on what we're seeing now and we think that one overall and I'm not confident that that every county leadership is prioritizing public safety the way they should I would like to be proven wrong I like to enjoy a much better relationship our our local one portion yeah you and me both as a resident Montgomery County I would like that ever speaking with Francisco madrigal his the Baltimore acting field office director for ice can you talk me through a situation like this when when McGovern county police apprehends in individual like this and they process them odd because we've not link all of these systems right in we we can all communicate with each other you get a notification there your office gets a notification Hey they've got someone and it ended in it raises a red flag in your system because you have records to show that this person is illegally in the country right is that is that how it works yeah that's correct basically receive biometric identification talk about fear from here the double again other information that we have as well we have enough all of our we'll go ahead and lodged in the grace of the pier against that individual what that is with laforgue five for the agency to notify us when you're about to be released for that we have original amount of time to go ahead and and that person up and take them into custody our for our federal immigration and when that container is lodge Sir a do do you then proactively communicate with local law enforcement in this case Montgomery County but it could be anywhere or or is this all done sort of automatically when I detain was lodged they their system get some sort of notification right there is that at least at the front end there's more automation and technology involved which is a good thing that's helpful to us things their work effectively yesterday it says come out to open communication at and and why and and individual fall for this year that's the one looking for a local jurisdiction contact size and let them know that somebody is about to be released and then we can make arrangements to go and pick somebody up in a lot of places across the country this really isn't too much of a nexus five and that long fortune does whether it's local the federal the federal state local local the local you need and that convention among long but it really shouldn't be too difficult for us to be able to pull off here in America no it sure shouldn't especially if you've got you know and and listen I've spoken to cops when when they can't win the microphones off and cops know how to conduct themselves that they know under the understand basic law enforcement principles and when everybody cooperates some works together communicates is it really isn't you're not reinventing the wheel here and so I got one last question I know this is gonna sound trite and forgive me because I'm sincere about this has it been entertained at all for you guys to open up a satellite office in Rockville Maryland a you know within the neighborhood so you're right there just you don't like out of a ten person office in one of the office spaces so you you can you are literally ten minutes away or five minutes away at any given moment right the word for what it is are the resources still here and you for sex we all are I DO are really work what we have here a lot of my personal or sort of centrally located all four areas that we can get out to Maryland and handle down to I'm very sorry first tell me how to use the shore try to recognize that way ideally you know if if locality is only you are let us have a desk and and and work for that that point that is very helpful and and after we both long way for the issue and and brother for yeah I don't know all for their with with the government on the days that I think all fifty five what a public safety and understand that no wonder we have a certain set of of what the new the criminals to from there charge what was up holding and he and other organizations are are charged with with for security and cooperation all of the work together and help each other the successful have you are in this specific case this latest case of Louise Freddie Hernandez moralis as there been any follow up or communications with county executive overtures office or any of the other elected officials who set these policies in place we haven't heard anything as of yet were always open their Asian here with what what anyone whether it's one fourth and there are other government body whether it's five on strategic planning war or operational matters well you know the case this individual so I have cruel parties that both the red Sox yeah is is integration case for them crazy process and their process to go along with that so well you would need to call and get on that again we should be able to do that by I tried to call if they could do in our jobs Francis commander gobbled more acting a field office director for ice thank you for joining us and again the bottom line here and it is good news Louise Freddie Hernandez moralis who was accused of molesting an eleven year old girl in the country illegally from Guatemala released on bond at McGovern county
