TUXEDO, NY — October 1,2019 — Chele Chiavacci Farley (R-Orange County) released the following statement in response to news reports that New York and New Jersey authorities are refusing to cooperate with ICE:
“Shocking reports in the media have just revealed that two alleged child rapists—one in Westchester, New York, and the other in New Jersey—are loose after authorities in both states refused to hold them in jail awaiting ICE.
According to reports, Joaquin Rodriguez-Quiroz, was arrested by police in New York’s Westchester County on 3rd-degree rape charges on Sept. 6th for allegedly raping a minor under 17 years old. Despite the request from ICE to detain Mr. Rodriguez-Quiroz, a Mexican national, authorities recklessly released him after he was able to post bond. He is clearly a danger to the public, but his whereabouts are currently unknown.
It is despicable that local authorities in our district are willing to put American citizens—young girls— in harm’s way in order to protect criminals who are here in our country illegally. While Congressman Sean Maloney is consumed with impeaching the President, families in the 18th District are at risk and Maloney is doing nothing to protect them.
It’s time to vote Sean Maloney out to make way for someone who will fight to protect American citizens.”
