Convicted Child Murderer Released from Prison Despite ICE Detainer

An undocumented immigrant and convicted child murderer was released from a California prison despite a request that he be turned over to federal immigration agents, officials said.

Carlos Morales-Ramirez, a citizen of El Salvador, was sprung earlier this month from Valley State Prison in Chowchilla, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said in a statement Monday.

The 44-year-old Morales-Ramirez had been serving time on charges of murder, assault on a child causing death, and great bodily injury to a child causing death.

ICE officials said his release defied their petition for him to be handed over to them to begin deportation proceedings.
