A man wanted for rape in Fairfax County, who had been released from custody in Loudoun County a month before the assault because of an apparent gap in immigration databases, was captured Sunday in Houston, Fairfax police said Monday.

Salvador Portillo-Saravia is being held in the Houston jail pending extradition to Fairfax. His case highlighted flaws in the much-touted Secure Communities program that is supposed to keep dangerous illegal immigrants off the street.

Authorities said Portillo-Saravia, 29, was a member of the street gang MS-13 who had been picked up by gang officers in Prince William County in 2003 and deported.

I still think there is more to this story then a causal mistake.

So the locals blame the feds because he didn't come up on a database that only goes back to 2005. The fact remains that the locals cut an illegal loose and even if they wanted to turn him over to ICE, ICE wouldn't have deported him.

The guy is an MS-13 member. You know he is tatted up with all sorts of gang tattoos. That right there should be grounds for the locals to call ICE, and ICE to actually show up and do some investigating.
