Judge Jeff Marcuzzo of Douglas County in Nebraska set his bail at only $5,000, despite how bail set by judges for American citizens accused of the same crime range 5 or 10 times higher. The prosecutor was not even given an opportunity to request higher bail. Next the prosecutor repeatedly begged the Obama Administration to detain the illegal alien, as the law authorizes the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to do. But it refused, pursuant to Obama’s “priority enforcement program,” which allows illegal aliens to roam free in our country until they are convicted of a significant misdemeanor or felony. The federal government set a hearing for the suspect before an immigration judge on March 23 of next year.
Don’t be surprised if the suspect fails to show up at his trial or for the immigration hearing. He posted the small bond and then disappeared back into the shadows. Who will be his next victim?
