Philadelphia officials released a criminal illegal immigrant who had previously been deported despite a warrant issued by a U.S. District Court judge. The officials released the man with a long list of violent charges when immigration officers provided a detainer and warrant.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers were forced to track down the historically violent suspect on the streets after Philadelphia officials released him. ERO officers obtained a criminal arrest warrant from a U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and presented that, along with an immigration detainer, to local officials on June 14, according to ICE.

City officials released the suspect, Guillermo Leon-Sandoval, 35, despite the criminal warrant. City officials previously said they would honor immigration detainers that were accompanied by a criminal arrest order signed by a judge. However, Leon-Sandavol was released.

Supreme Court justices, court of appeals judges, and district court judges are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate, as stated in the Constitution. The names of potential nominees are often recommended by senators or sometimes by members of the House who are of the President's political party. The Senate Judiciary Committee typically conducts confirmation hearings for each nominee. Article III of the Constitution states that these judicial officers are appointed for a life term. The federal Judiciary, the Judicial Conference of the United States, and the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts play no role in the nomination and confirmation process.

According to the above this jerk is appointed for life. They are Article III (of the constitution) judges. They can only be removed by impeachment.
