Illegal Alien Commits Murder After Release from NYPD Custody

NEW YORK – Denery Steven Lemus-Najarro, 21, is in federal custody following his Aug. 18, arrest by the New York Police Department. The unlawfully present Guatemalan citizen was charged due to his involvement in a gang-related shooting in Queens, New York.

“It’s important that the citizens of New York City understand that the sanctuary city policies enacted by local politicians jeopardize public safety,” said Thomas R. Decker, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) New York field office director. “These policies embolden gang members, such as Lemus-Najarro, to brazenly commit crimes in this city without fear of repercussion. It’s unfortunate that the lives and safety of the citizens they have been elected to protect are second to those of the criminal aliens. ICE detainers are an important tool this agency uses to remove violent criminals from our communities.”

According to public court documents, Lemus-Najarro, is an alleged 18th Street gang member who has an outstanding removal order. Law enforcement officers identified Lemus-Najarro as the suspect in the Aug. 14 shooting in Queens. The incident left one man with a gunshot wound to the leg.

In January, NYPD arrested Lemus-Najarro on criminal possession of a firearm charges. Following the subject’s arrest, ERO officers lodged a detainer with NYPD. The detainer was not honored and Lemus-Najarro was released from custody and back into the community.

On Aug. 20, the FBI’s New York Metro Safe Streets Task Force arrested Lemus-Najarro on illegal alien in possession of a firearm or ammunition charges. He is currently detained in U.S. Marshals Service custody pending trial.

About detainers

ICE relies on the exchange of information with its law enforcement agency partners to access foreign-born inmates at local, state, and federal facilities, and the use of detainers as part of its public safety mission. In many cases, these individuals pose a demonstrable threat to communities.

By lodging detainers against those individuals, ICE makes every effort to ensure that removable aliens are turned over to ICE custody at the conclusion of their criminal detention rather than being released into the community where many abscond or reoffend.

  1. This UNLAWFUL exercise by the left of not punishing, but coddling WETBACKS by providing “sanctuary” is a PERSONAL issue with me and my family!!!

    We (my wife and I) are “Angel Parents” We lost our youngest son and his fiancée to a three time convicted twice deported illegal WETBACK low life dirt bag felon. I cannot understand how or why elected officials are fine with encouraging these vermin to enter the U.S. then denying our own citizenry the right and ability to defend themselves by proclamation!

    What was most tragic this occurred in a LIEberally mandated gun free zone where my son “obeyed the law” and paid for it with his and his fiancée’s lives. I make it a point to NEVER be in a “gun free zone” as I carry no matter if I am in a mandated gun free zone and no one is the wiser.

    I see red whenever I hear a “bleeding-heart LIEberal” cry about injustice of “poor law abiding migrants” treated like the scum they are!!! Or how effective disarming law abiding citizens save lives. NONE of them have walked a mile in my shoes

    It is said that time heals all wounds, To that I say time doesn’t heal these it doesn’t even attempt to gloss those kinds of wounds over!!!

    Anyone who is a genuine (not part time or absentee) father feels that all our children remain little girls and boys their entire lives no matter how old they get. A father is owned by their children the second his child wraps their little hand around your finger and grabs it as to say “you are mine” I must say that right now I am teary eyed imparting this. My little boy was just 18 and had recently been accepted to medical school when he was taken from us.

    Needless to say our family was devastated when a “technicality” (more like political pressure) allowed for our son’s murderer’s release. I nearly went so far as to seek that vermin out him out and kill that POS with my bare hands. I think I would have enjoyed that. I really do.

    Our only solace was when justice was served when this dirt bag tried to rob an off duty cop who wasted that POS. This was one of the most gratifying days of my life

    Now as if our family hasn’t suffered enough in late October of 2019 My wife’s niece and her two children still live in Commiefornication (the land of the WETBACKS) Her children our grand nieces were walking home from school and were struck by a hit-and-run driver. Broken bones contusions and pavement burns were the result of that hit-and-run event. The driver was caught the next day and turned out he was a WETBACK who had been previously deported.

    Needless to say the state of Commiemexico will not take responsibility but will shield this SCUMBAG from being punished. Leaving the “victims” to shoulder the medical expenses!!!


  2. THIS IS NOT AN ISOLATED EVENT !!! It has bevome more apparant that there will be more “Angel Moms & Dads” if the “new” Democrats are allowed to stay in office. When we say “no one is above the law” that should incllude the elected officials that’allow’ and encourage unlawful acts.

    Our Warriors in Blue, Tan & Green put their lives on the line to ‘enforce’ laws designed to keep us safe and our nation whole…..Let’s honor them and vote the criminal officials out…and lock them up as well
