ever_valles_facebookOn January 30th, 2017 Denver’s Democratic Mayor Michael Hancock proudly proclaimed” “If being a sanctuary city means that we value taking care of one another, and welcoming refugees and immigrants, then I welcome the title,”8 days later, two known gang members (and illegal immigrants) who had been arrested…and released…by the Denver police killed a man.  On February 7th, 2017 Ever Valles (in Facebook pic to left..still up) and Nathan Valdez attempted to rob and ultimately murdered 32 year old Tim Cruz at a light rail station.  So why do I care?  According to reports: “Ever Andres Valles, 19, a citizen of Mexico, was encountered by ICE via the Criminal Alien Program following his arrest on local charges in October 2016,” According to ICE: “At the time of his arrest, ICE placed a detainer with the Denver County Jail. The detainer wasn’t honored, and he was released by the jail Dec. 20, 2016, without notification to ICE. Valles is a known gang member whose gang history is documented in the Colorado gang database. Due to his criminal history and gang affiliation, Valles is an ICE immigration enforcement priority.”  So what was the Denver Police Department’s response? They claim that they did, indeed notify ICE prior to releasing Valles.  Is this true?  Possibly, in a technical manner.  If  you look at the Fax (yes Fax) produced by the Denver PD as ‘proof’ of their efforts  you will notice that the Fax was sent at 11:35 PM on December, 20th, 2016.  According to ICE, Mr. Valles was released on December 20th, 2016.  So…the Denver PD FAXED a document to ICE 25 minutes before midnight to inform them that a dangerous felon was about to be put back on the streets.  In defense of their actions the Sheriff’s department did defiantly add: “We are part of the criminal justice system and do not hold people on civil matters,”…I am sure that helps Mr. Cruz’ family sleep better at night.  It is this ignorant, self serving attitude that ultimately cost the life of Mr. Cruz.  If you are so inclined, you can contact Mr. Hancock here:

*for those wondering why I changed the title…in reflection it occurs to me that this does not occur in a vacuum.  The Mayor alone did not create this situation.  As such, it is Denver’ government and not solely the mayor…
