According to investigators, the five MS-13 gang members lured Ardon into the Loch Raven Reservoir before murdering her. Police discovered Ardon’s body in May.
Two of the illegal aliens benefitted from New York and Maryland sanctuary policies, ICE officials said.
Constanza-Galdomez was arrested in Suffolk County, New York, in February 2018 and was eventually turned over to ICE. In May 2018, though, an immigration judge released the illegal alien on bail. Months later, Constanza-Galdomez was again arrested in Suffolk County but was released despite ICE placing a detainer on him, requesting he be turned over to their custody.
Constanza-Galdomez was ordered removed by an immigration judge in October 2019 after he failed to appear at his immigration hearing.
Likewise, Hernandez-Orellana was arrested in Prince George County, Maryland, in January. ICE placed a detainer on Hernandez-Orellana but county officials ignored the request and released him.
