A man charged with killing his 19-year-girlfriend is an illegal immigrat who was freed from a previous arrest by Durham County in North Carolina, a sanctuary county.
Jose Bryan Guzman, an 18-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, allegedly strangled Marlene Yamileth Portillo-Posada. The pair were dating at the time and Guzman believed Portillo-Porsada thought she was cheating on him.
Guzman came into the U.S. in 2015, possibly as an unaccompanied minor. He was held by Durham County in December 2018 for suspicion of robbery but was released in March as part of an apparent policy to release hundreds of incarcerated illegal immigrants each year rather than turn them over to ICE for deportation.
After allegedly killing Portillo-Posada, Guzman fled to Louisiana but was tracked down by Durham and arrested.
Guzman is now in the process of being deported.
