Washington Examiner –
An illegal immigrant once protected by President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has been charged with sexual assault on a minor and murder after allegedly giving fentanyl to a teenage girl who later died.
Police say Jorge Alexander Che-Quiab, a 25-year-old Mexican national, was charged with first-degree murder in Colorado for giving 16-year-old Alexis Krzystek the drug fentanyl at an early August house party and told her it was the prescription pain pill oxycodone.
The 25-year-old reportedly admitted to giving underage girls the fentanyl, along with cocaine and alcohol, at the party, and a police search warrant of his home turned up several hundred grams of heroin and 300 blue pills that had been pressed to appear to be oxycodone and cut with fentanyl.
Che-Quiab, according to police, did not dial 911 when Krzystek started turning blue at the party and went to sleep. He called 911 in the morning when she didn’t wake up.
Che-Quiab also reportedly admitted to police that he and another man sexually assaulted multiple girls at the party, including a 14-year-old who was inebriated by drugs or alcohol at the time.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a detainer on Che-Quiab last week, asking officials in Arapahoe County, Colorado, to turn him over to the agency if he is released from custody.
ICE had previously filed a detainer on Che-Quiab, who has admitted to gang ties in the past, in late August after he was arrested on drug charges, but that detainer was not honored due to the state’s immigration sanctuary laws.
“Colorado’s sanctuary policy continues to fail the residents of this great state by ensuring that criminals who don’t belong here are released to the community where they could potentially harm more people,” ICE said in a statement.
ICE added that Che-Quiab “illegally entered the United States on an unknown date” and “later applied for benefits under DACA in 2014 and was granted DACA status later that same year.”
Che-Quiab’s DACA status was revoked after he failed to apply for renewal in 2016.
He is currently facing 13 felony charges and is being held on $2 million bond.Arrests Children Exposed Counterfeit Oxy Fentanyl Homicide Opioid Crisis Overdose Sexual Assault
