An illegal immigrant was arrested Thursday in Connecticut for sexually assaulting a three-year-old girl. Douglas Hus-Flores, a 19-year old Guatemalan living illegally in Stamford, Connecticut, was arrested just hours before a scheduled immigration hearing according to local police.
A little over a week ago, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy issued a memo to the state’s law enforcement officers ordering them not to comply with federal immigration enforcement.
“Putting all opinions about this presidential executive order aside, its enforcement is going to have a local impact, especially given the constrained resources and financial impacts this will have on state and municipal budgets, which we already know are stretched to their limits, in addition to giving rise to serious concerns in affected communities,” Malloy said in a prepared statement.
Hus-Flores’ arrest came less than a week after the arrest of another illegal alien in Connecticut for a violent crime. Last Friday, Oscar Hernandez, an illegal alien deported previously for felony convictions, was arrested as the prime suspect in a double stabbing and kidnapping in Bridgeport.
