An illegal alien from the Philippines, 26-year-old Keane Dean, allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl in Santa Clarita after luring her into his garage and has been charged with two counts of child sexual abuse, according to the LA Times.
Dean has a long history of sexual misconduct. In 2008, he was charged with lewd conduct in public. In March 2014, patrons at Macy’s department store had their shopping experiences disrupted by the sight of Dean exposing himself. Authorities booked him for six months on indecent exposure charges and sixteen months for burglary, served concurrently. He spent time in Kern Valley State Prison before being shipped to the Adelanto detention facility — where he posted $10,000 bond on April 29 and left.
Thanks to leftist lawfare, the government couldn’t hold this illegal alien sex offender unless it definitively proved he was a flight risk or a “danger to the community.” The ACLU Foundation of Southern California successfully argued before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that after only six months of detention, illegals should be free to post bond and roam around the U.S. while the feds puzzle over their deportation proceedings.
“The bonds give detainees, many of whom have lived in the United States for years, a chance to reunite with their families while fighting their deportations, said Ahilan Arulanantham, deputy legal director at the ACLU of Southern California,” according to the LA Times. “This rule provides due process, and it would be a mistake to abandon that rule because you have one or even a few instances where people go out and do bad things.” Such as, say, raping a child.
Arulanantham said that the ACLU doesn’t bother to keep track of how many illegals commit crimes while out on bond, or even how many have criminal histories. In Dean’s case, his criminal history, GPS monitor, and penchant for perversion should have thrown up some red flags. But as Michelle Malkin would say: It ain’t over ’til the alien wins.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department now holds Dean with $110,000 bail. But Los Angeles is a sanctuary city, and the county sheriff’s office will not honor U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer requests. It’s likely that Dean will never be deported, and will serve time and be back on the streets to menace the public once more.
