    FED-UP federal agents captured a wanted fugitive who almost managed to cheat justice with some assistance from Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, United States Attorney William M. McSwain announced Friday. What’s more, an insider says Krasner is a “mastermind in a shameless attempt to trash the Constitution!”

    According to McSwain, Alan Eder Torres-Gomez, 30, was captured and charged Friday with illegal reentry after deportation.

    The 30-year-old fleer was charged with state offenses in Philadelphia on Sept. 14, 2018, and on that same day, he was charged federally with illegal reentry after deportation. Immediately following the federal charges, a United States Federal Judge issued a warrant for Torres-Gomez’s arrest.

    But that didn’t deter Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner from assisting Torres-Gomez from being turned over to Homeland Security. On Nov. 28, 2018, Krasner dismissed all charges against the wanted fugitive and he was released from incarceration Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility in Philadelphia without notifying Immigration and Customs Enforcement or the United States Marshals Service, “despite the existence of the federal warrant,” U.S. Attorney McSwain told

    “The deeper you dig and the further you look into Larry Krasner’s ways, the more shocking it becomes,” a source who spoke only under the condition of anonymity told “Frankly, there doesn’t seem to be one single shred of decency in him as a man or public official.”

    “It’s my belief that Krasner continues to knowingly and willfully harbor anyone wanted by Homeland Security for an immigration detainer, even when they have a federal warrant.”

    Since taking office, Krasner let wanted fugitives escape justice, insiders charge. “Repeated lies” are told to the public in a desperate effort to minimize “the nature of the illegal immigrant threat and the scale of the administration’s incompetence,” the source noted.

    “[Krasner] blatantly disregarded a court order and in turn put Philadelphians at risk by refusing to notify U.S. Marshals Service – despite knowing the defendant was wanted for a slew of crimes,” a source at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office told “It was reckless, illegal and a total betrayal. Krasner is nothing but a mastermind in a shameless attempt to trash the Constitution”  

    “Philadelphia’s sanctuary city policy politicizes law enforcement by playing favorites in which one group of people (illegal aliens) is singled out as not having to follow the law. This creates a double-standard that is un-American, morally wrong and makes a mockery of the rule of law,” U.S. Attorney McSwain told in a statement.

    “It also threatens public safety when, as here, the City ignores lawful federal arrest warrants and detainers. Nobody who cares about equal treatment under the law – or about public safety – can support the City’s policy. We at the U.S. Attorney’s Office will continue to enforce the rule of law in a neutral, non-partisan manner, rather than playing favorites,” McSwain continued. 

    According to the Department of Justice, Torres-Gomez, a native and citizen of Mexico, was previously deported from the United States on or about August 11, 2009 and December 12, 2016. 

    Following the latest of the Torres-Gomez’s deportations, the sneak allegedly reentered the United States illegally. 

    If convicted of this current illegal reentry offense, the defendant faces a maximum possible sentence of 2 years’ imprisonment.

    The case was investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations (“ERO”), and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Timothy M. Stengel.
