The illegal alien whose case was used to turn Massachusetts into a “sanctuary state” has been arrested for allegedly robbing a woman in a wheelchair, stealing $2,000 and slapping her.

Police described the daylight robbery which they said occurred after the women withdrew the money from a bank according to the Washington Times.

Sreynuon Lunn was previously released in Boston after his home countries refused to take him back. As the Washington Times‘ Stephen Dinan reports, “Lunn has been under a final order of deportation since 2008, but ICE has been unable to oust him. He was born to Cambodian parents in a refugee camp in Thailand, and Cambodia refuses to recognize him as a citizen.”

“His case gained headlines over the summer when the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled that state and local authorities could no longer legally hold immigrants for pickup by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” according to the report.
