Lord, we need help in our nation. We pray that our leaders would seek you for answers.

North Carolina’s largest sanctuary county released a previously deported illegal alien accused of rape and child sex crimes, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency reveals.

Oscar Pacheco-Leonardo, a 33-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, was arrested almost two months ago by the Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, Sheriff’s Office for first-degree rape and child sex crimes. After his arrest, ICE officials said they placed a detainer on Pacheco-Leonardo, requesting that he be turned over to the agency before being released from local custody.

Mecklenburg’s sanctuary county policy, however, ensured that the sheriff’s office release the illegal alien from their custody, allowing him to run free for nearly two months before being arrested ICE agents.


On June 14, Pacheco-Leonardo was arrested by Mecklenburg County police for one count of first-degree rape and two counts of indecent liberties with a child. The following day, ICE placed a detainer on the illegal alien. Rather than handing him over to ICE, Mecklenburg police released Pacheco-Leonardo on June 16.

Pacheco-Leonardo had already been deported from the U.S. in July 2006. Sometime after this date, the illegal alien re-entered the county through the southern border — a felony under federal law.

“The Mecklenburg County sheriff’s decision to restrict cooperation with ICE serves as an open invitation to aliens who commit criminal offenses, that Mecklenburg County is a safe haven for persons seeking to evade federal authorities, and residents of Mecklenburg County are less safe today than last year due to these policies,” ICE official Sean Gallagher said in a statement.

Over the past nine months, ICE detailed a list of more than 20 illegal aliens who were recently arrested by Mecklenburg County police and released back into the local community despite having an ICE detainer lodged against them.

A July report by the Epoch Times noted research by North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement (, which states that in the last one and a half years, more than 330 illegal aliens have been charged with nearly 1,200 child sex crimes in North Carolina. Over the last four and a half years, the NCFIRE’s research states that an average of 34 illegal aliens in North Carolina are charged every month with child sex crimes.

  1. May “we” who are the “children of God” use our “weapons of warfare” valiantly in true and total obedience to God’s Word and fear not for not only are our weapons powerful, they are invincible when we use them knowing “they” that be with us, far out number and move in greater power than they that be against us! Remembering always, before this all became “visible” it was “spiritually” derived to be used against us by “that” which we war against
    according to Eph 6.
    Thank You Father God in The Name of Jesus I pray, Amen!

  2. we ask that the people of North Carolina would be freed from oppressive government that does not have their best interest at heart. We pray that all political posers would be unmasked and that free election would bring to NC good Governmental workers. We pray for your protection, dear Lord, on the communities and on the children in NC. We pray castration would be implemented on those convicted of rape, especially on children. In Jesus name, amen

  3. Dear Heavenly Father, please hear our prayers in regard to these sex predators being released in this county and all over the United States. We know that one person can make a difference! I pray in the mighty name and power of Jesus Christ that this Sheriff and others that work in his department be burdened for the Children in the County and would make there feelings be known to the public! May the hidden evil be revealed and a stop put to it! We pray for this Catholic Church and may the members have the burden to pray and fast for righteousness and the protection of children and young people in their Community. May your Spirit the Holy Spirit overshadow and burden the Christians of the Community to share their faith and may revival break out in the churches and the Community. We pray this in the power of your son Jesus Christ and we Thankyou for the changes that will result because of your faithfulness oh Father. Amen

  4. Father God, we submit this situation to You in the name of Jesus. I call forth the power of the blood of Jesus to protect Your children from these freed convicts. Those elected officials ignoring the law of the land are operating in false authority and usurping spirits.
    In the name of Jesus, I say that the law is for the lawless. I bring the blood of Jesus and the name of Jesus against those who are ignoring our laws, whether they are the actual perpetrator of an unlawful act…or if they are an elected official ignoring Federal Law and releasing convicts. Lord, I ask that the Holy Spirit brood over this situation bringing the restoration of law and order. Father God, in the name of Jesus, I ask that You change the mind set of those making these decisions. I cast down vane imaginations and every high thing that prevails itself against the mind of Christ. We take their thoughts captive to the mind of Christ. May they not lean to their own understanding, but in all of their ways acknowledge Christ. Lord if they will not submit to Your Authority ( which You say we are to honor the law of the land) then move them out. Wake up the Christians to pray and then vote.

  5. LORD GOD turn the tide if this evil agenda, expose and remove the perpetrators. Restore law and order and protect the citizens. Dear LORD the whole system is corrupt bring it down in JESUS name I pray

  6. May the hand of the LORD bring them to true justice today. May NO other child be touched by them or others who are involved in this same evil. May the children be far removed and safe. Maranatha LORD Jesus, maranatha.

  7. Lord, give wisdom to those in Authority to deal with those who commit sex crimes. Continue to expose those involved, arrest them and deport them or prosecute them and put them where they cannot hurt another child. Do not let them be released to continue harming others. Lord, You deal with them if our law enforcement fails us. You Lord, never fail. We love you.

  8. Wow! My sister lives in N C. There, the Catholic church removed her priest, sent him to somewhere in South America and moved in a priest who speaks Spanish to the congregation. All of a sudden the “old guard” of the church has been pushed out and the congregation replaced by immigrants. The shoe fits that the pepophilia of the church would be “protected” in Winnabow N. C.
    Heavenly Father, Prosecute the predators in the church in Winnabow N. C. Wake up your church in Winnabow, and throughout N. C. and America in Jesus Christ. Amen

  9. In the Charlotte region we also have the highest murder rate in years already we have past last years total because of the Sheriff also releasing those who have other violent crime issues ! Please pray that God will turn the heart of our Sherif toward truly protecting the citizens in Mecklenburg County instead of protecting illegal immigrants or criminals with violent and evil hearts ! God have mercy and protect our children and citizens …..

    1. Amen. I agree with Mrs. Karla Lowman. Heavenly Father, You know the answer to how to handle this situation and all other illegal immigration. Open our ears and eyes to hear from You so our leaders know how to handle this problem. We do not want criminals roaming our streets causing harm to our children and other citizens. We know some people are coming here to find help but others come here and commit crimes. We need to hear from YOU how to handle this problem. What is the answer, Father? Let Thy kingdom come and Thy will be done in the precious name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

      1. I agree, in The Name of Jesus! In The Name of Jesus above all else named, The Blood of Jesus we plead over and unto each warrior in The Lord’s Army, be vigilant in praying what God says about His will that none be lost and utilize our God given authority over each and every spiritual assignment lodged and loosed against the people of North Carolina and every place where The Power of The Blood and Word of our Lord is THE deciding “law” all MUST bow to! May we wield the “sword” valiantly and utilize our “weapons” victoriously, accordingly with Luke 10, Eph 6 and 2Peter 3:9, in The Name of Jesus, AMEN INDEED!
