A 65-year-old Oregon woman in the sanctuary city of Portland was allegedly sexually assaulted by an illegal alien that had been deported a whopping 20 times, records reveal.

The suspect, Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, is alleged to have broken into the woman’s home, physically and sexually assaulted her while threatening to kill her, and stole her phone and car, KGW reported.

Police said he used scarves and socks from the woman’s own closet to bind and gag the elderly woman, Fox 12 reported.

Martinez punched the elderly woman in the face and slammed her head into the floor before fleeing the scene in her car.

He was caught after he attempted a sexual assault on a second woman in a nearby park.

Martinez has been in the Portland area for more than a year and, according to court documents obtained by Fox 12, has been deported from the United States to his native Mexico 20 times, but he keeps coming back.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has filed a detainer against Martinez, according to KGW.

A similar detainer was ignored by the sanctuary city, who filed a suit against President Donald Trump’s executive order to defund cities that don’t cooperate with ICE detainers, in December 2016.

But rather than comply with the detainer, city officials released him back into the public, free to harm more people, KGW reported.

Prior to the July 24 arrest, Martinez’s criminal record shows a felony conviction for burglary and three misdemeanor convictions for battery, theft, and obstructing a public officer. The court document also said he told investigators in March that he has a long history of using methamphetamine and was currently using on a daily basis.

“The Sheriff’s Office does not hold people in county jails on ICE detainers or conduct any immigration enforcement actions,” Sheriff Mike Reese wrote in a letter to the community earlier this year, according to KGW.

That probably doesn’t come as solace to the women this man victimized.

Martinez faces charges of first-degree sex abuse, first-degree sodomy, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.
