Immigrant has to shoot cop in the head before finally getting turned into ICE, after 10 years of prior arrests

After evading immigration officials for nearly a decade, Haitian national Wisner Desmaret finally had an immigration detainer filed against him this week … a day after he shot a Florida cop, nearly killing him in the process.

A detainer would have likely been filed much sooner had local authorities alerted officials to Desmaret’s numerous arrests over the past 10 or so years on a variety of charges, including burglary. Instead they apparently let Desmaret off the hook every time.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency officials confirmed with Fox News that this time they’re aware of Desmaret and have placed a detainer on him. Agency spokesman Bryan D. Cox warned though that the detainer won’t be activated until after Desmaret’s current case is adjudicated.

The current case concerns actions he took at a gas station in Fort Myers last Saturday. Local media reported that he assaulted a group of males. When the authorities arrived and attempted to apprehend him, Desmaret opened fire, critically injuring Fort Myers police officer Adam Jobbers-Miller.

Jobbers-Miller remained in “critical but stable” condition as of Monday, local police chief Derrick Diggs announced during an emotional press conference Monday.

“Words cannot express the emotions running through the Fort Myers Police family at this time. Our department spent the night in anxious anticipation as our comrade and co-worker underwent lifesaving surgery,” he added.

“We are grateful to the many people and agencies who have expressed their support, to the medical professionals who rushed to save him and to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Florida Highway Patrol for their immediate assistance with this situation.”


The perpetrator’s father, John Demaret, told the media that Desmaret arrived in the United States legally sometime in the past on a visa. ICE confirmed though that Desmaret is an illegal immigrant, suggesting that he overstayed his visa.

“You’ll find a majority of people that are in this country often times came here lawfully and often overstayed or their visa expired,” local attorney Michael Raheb reportedly said.

While no doubt true, this doesn’t excuse their actions. Neither does it excuse the refusal by local authorities in Florida and elsewhere to alert ICE officials to criminal-prone illegals.

The fact remains that Demaret should have been apprehended by ICE and deported years ago. Instead he was allowed to stay, and now a Florida cop is fighting for his life because of it.
