Source: The Uber driver accused of raping a woman in the back seat of his vehicle before posting bail and fleeing the country was a national of Ghana who was living in the U.S. illegally, an ICE spokesman said, and now his victim is calling for change. Frederick Amfo, 30, was ordered held on $10,000 cash bail Friday during his arraignment in Quincy District Court on one count of rape, according to a spokeswoman for the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office. Emily Murray told 7News Amfo climbed into the back seat of his car and raped her on April 9.
Although the judge ordered that if Amfo posted bail, he must stay away from the victim, surrender his passport and no longer work any other ride-sharing company, a Trial Court spokeswoman said he was given 24 hours to turn over his passport — allowing him time to leave the U.S. — an option they are no longer offering.
“The court has now implemented procedures to ensure that defendants who are ordered by the court to surrender their passports surrender them when they post bail and prior to their release,” the spokesperson said.
An ICE spokesman said following Amfo’s arrest, the agency issued an immigration detainer to the Weymouth Police Department because he was living in the U.S. illegally. And though that detainer should have followed him as he transferred from the Quincy Court House, ICE said the court chose not to forward the detainer to Norfolk County — allowing him to be bailed out.
“This case highlights the potential dangers of policies that prohibit cooperation with ICE,” the spokesman said in a statement. “ICE detainers serve as a legally authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case. ICE places immigration detainers when the agency possesses probable cause to believe an alien is deportable from the United States.”
Oh good, they’ve changed their policies. Problem solved. So a rapist illegal immigrant got away. No big deal. It’s not like rape is a crime we should be taking seriously. Better put the raping illegal immigrant on the honor system. Just give him 24 hours to find his passport and I’m sure he will bring it right in.
Little known fact – he got away because Massachusetts is technically a sanctuary state now:
On Monday, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court unanimously ruled that state court officers are not legally permitted to comply with ICE detainers. The logic of its decision extends to all commonwealth law enforcement officers—meaning that Massachusetts is now, effectively, a sanctuary state.
So basically they arrest this guy for rape. They know he’s here illegally. But they can’t hand him over to ICE because…….this lady:
This is madness. These are the same people who claim to want to protect women from sexual violence. And they’re going out of their way to make sure that animals like this are set free because it’s politically incorrect to point out that there might be SOME illegal immigrants who might pose a greater threat to society than other illegal immigrants. We’re not talking about raiding homes and asking people for their papers. Maybe just hold onto the rapists and murderers though? Apparently that’s too much to ask.
How is this not a bigger story? Dude is here illegally and he committed one of the most heinous crimes possible. All while driving for the most popular ride sharing app in the country. Then he fled the freaking country. And I’m just seeing snippets on WHDH and WCVB.
Oh right, because it doesn’t fit the narrative. Glad to know the pecking order when it comes to victimization in today’s society. Perhaps if the victim was a transgender aborigine she’d actually get justice.
