Breaking: Illegal Immigrant Arrested In Grand Rapids, Slaughters A West Michigan Mom 5 Days Later (After Being Deported TWICE!)

Some mock Donald Trump for his focus on border security and building a wall, but make no mistake, Karla Guadalupe-Magaña, a young West Michigan mom, isn't laughing. She's dead, murdered by an illegal immigrant who had just been arrested and released by the Kent County Sheriff's Office only five days previously. 
The murder transpired despite the fact the assailant was deported multiple times in the last decade... 
According to a blockbuster report from WOOD TV 8:
"A man who allegedly admitted to strangling his girlfriend at a Wyoming apartment has been deported twice and was also arrested and released from jail only days before the homicide.
Raul Perez, 43, is charged with open murder and being a third-time habitual offender. He’s accused of killing 31-year-old Karla Guadalupe-Magaña at Woodcreek Apartments on 44th Street east of Burlingame Avenue SW...
Police say Guadalupe-Magaña was Perez’s girlfriend, but the victim’s brother tells 24 Hour News 8 they were friends and she wasn’t living with Perez.
GoFundMe page shows Guadalupe-Magaña was a mother of five children. Family is asking for help with funeral expenses.
Just five days before the killing, 24 Hour News 8 learned, Wyoming police arrested Perez on a misdemeanor operating while intoxicated charge. Kent County Undersheriff Michelle Young said he used a different name to identify himself after the arrest: Jerry Lopes Sosa.

A fingerprint scan showed his real name, though, which revealed his criminal record. Young told 24 Hour News 8 that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would have been notified of his arrest and it would be up to that agency to direct the jail to keep Perez in custody.
“On the [Saturday, Oct.] 22, ICE would’ve been notified this person was in custody and ICE from there has to do a manual search to identify that this person is associated with a previous contact. That would’ve taken manual intervention and that doesn’t happen over a weekend,” Young explained during a phone interview.
She went on to explain the Kent County Sheriff’s Department had no reason to keep Perez in custody, so he was released on Oct. 22 — a day after his arrest.
It has been more than a decade since Perez first had contact with ICE, during which time he was twice deported to Mexico, the agency told 24 Hour News 8."
Excellent job from WOOD TV 8!
