MASON CITY – A Mason City man will have to deal with federal immigration authorities after a domestic assault incident.

Mason City police were dispatched for a domestic incident after 3 AM on Tuesday, July 11, 2017. Officers arrived at 16 14th Street SE and encountered 34-year-old Leonardo Elivar Trejo. An investigation into the incident led to his arrest on a charge of felony domestic abuse involving strangulation.

Once in the jail, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer was put on Trejo. AS NIT has reported previously, the law states that law enforcement agencies ‘shall maintain custody of the alien,’ once an ICE detainer order on a prisoner is issued. ICE detainers are used to make sure that aliens that commit serious crimes are not released back in the public when they should be lawfully deported back to their native countries.

Trejo remains held in the county jail on no bond.

Trejo, Leonardo Elivar

    He’s just misunderstood. Somebody told him about America, the land of the free, and he just wanted to cash in on all that free stuff. There are a lot of them in this area.

      Sounds like your judgmental racist attitude is part of the problem too

        The real problem is, people like you who defend these illegals. But maybe you are the one that’s misunderstood, because you talk out of your ass because your head knows better. 🙂

    I am glad they caught him and am glad Sheriff Pals got the ICE detainer and didn’t set bail. It should not take a crime to deport them, entering the country illegally is grounds for jail and deportation, Cerro Gordo County just avoided another possible death by an illegal. Sara Root and Kate Stinely are two deaths that didn’t need to happen because illegal aliens that were not allowed to be here killed them. Get that wall built President Trump!

    Obama’s administration would label him a “dreamer” and pardon him.

    Now this is how law and order should work. To be in this country unlawfully is bad enough and that alone should support deportation if we had any sense at all as a country that is supposed to respect the “rule of law”.

    Now that we find he has a propensity for violence, his behavior raises him to the level of deportation. Something wrong with this picture, but at least he out of here. For now???
