VIDEO: Watch Arizona Sheriff Nab Illegal Immigrant in High Speed Chase – After He’s Been Deported 20 times!
Mexican national Genaro Cisneros-Delgado, who was involved in a high-speed car chase is being held on $50,000 bond and facing charges of felony flight and endangerment in Pinal County, Arizona.
The 26-year-old has been handed over to the Border Patrol for processing, along with the three men he was smuggling into the U.S., but it is doubtful he is overly concerned about his future – he has already been deported as many as 20 times.
Contrary to representations by the Obama administration, it does not appear that the border is secure, nor does it seem that federal law is being enforced. The U.S. Code states that:
“Any alien who enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers… shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined or imprisoned not more than six months or both.”
Re-entering the country illegally after deportation is a felony subject to a higher fine and a sentence of at least one year in prison.
Cisneros-Delgado has been charged with felony flight and endangerment after being involved in the high speed chase when a deputy sheriff tried to pull a vehicle over with lights and sirens after noticing it was being driven recklessly on Interstate 10 in between Phoenix and Tucson.
The spokesman for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, Tim Gaffney, said, “The vehicle was speeding, weaving in and out of traffic and following other vehicles too closely.”
The chase lasted for almost a half-hour as the vehicle left the interstate and ran stop signs at 90 miles per hour before eventually crashing the gate and entering a retirement community.
Authorities say Cisneros-Delgado and the three others in the vehicle fled into a nearby canal.
The deputy followed on foot with his K-9 partner, Ares, ordering the four to stop and warning them he would sic the animal on them if they did not obey. When they ignored him, the deputy unleashed Ares who, according to the county spokesman, “was able to help bring the suspect into custody.”
Maricopa County will handle the prosecution for damages to the security gate at the retirement community estimated to be in excess of $20,000.
The driver was arrested and the vehicle, which was registered to a fictitious name and address, was seized.
Cisneros-Delgado admitted he had been deported from the U.S. numerous times, most recently in June, re-entering in December. He had also served 15 months in a federal prison.
All four of the men are in the U.S. illegally and it was thought that Cisneros-Delgado was smuggling them into the country.
