Long Awaited DHS Report Released

Prince William County filed suit against the Department of Homeland Security ("DHS") on Tuesday over its refusal to provide information regarding Carlos Martinelly-Montano, an illegal immigrant charged with killing a nun in a alcohol related car crash last August.

DHS claimed that it could not release the information requested due to Immigration and Customs Enforcement privacy policies.

On Friday, however, DHS released a report of ICE's Inquiry into the matter to Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, who along with others, also sued the DHS under the Freedom of Information Act.  The report indicates that Mr. Martinelly-Montano had been released by immigration authorities while awaiting deportation because he had demonstrated that he was not a flight risk.
