While outfits like the Immigration Policy Center say Americans ought to stop believing their lying eyes and understand that the more illegal immigrants stream across the border, the more crime rates fall, the reality is much darker.
On Thursday, Michigan police arrested a Mexican illegal alien, 23-year-old Aurelio Hernandez-Gomez, after finding him with a 13-year-old Florida girl who had last been seen two days before her ordeal.
Cops acted on a tip that led them to a Hartford home where Hernandez-Gomez hid the girl while assaulting her.
Michigan authorities charged Hernandez-Gomez with one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, meaning they believe he raped or otherwise penetrated the girl after incapacitating her or otherwise rendering her helpless. They have not released further details, such as whether or not the victim was related to the alien suspect. Hernandez-Gomez is being held on $150,000 bond in a Paw Paw Michigan jail and will be back in court on Wednesday.
Florida authorities plan to charge him with interference with child custody and felony kidnapping, according to WZZM 13, after Michigan ships him back to Polk County, Florida at an unspecified date. U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement has been notified, but it’s unclear how they will proceed.
Hernandez-Gomez hails from Chiapas, Mexico, where the sexual age of consent is 12.
This didn’t get much press…
An illegal alien Luis Rey Sanchez-Reynosa was arrested in late June for repeatedly raping and molesting a preteen girl in North Carolina.
On June 29, police in Durham arrested Luis Rey Sanchez-Reynosa, 32, of Liberty Street, after he reportedly raped and molested a girl under the age of 13, over a period of several weeks.
Sanchez-Reynosa has been charged with two counts of rape of a child, two counts of indecent liberties with a child and one count of sex offense with a child.
Sanchez-Reynosa is currently being held at the Durham County Jail on $750,000 bond, as well as on an ICE detainer.
The Obama administration has admitted that an illegal immigrant and known gang member – who recently was charged in the murders of four people – was allowed to remain in the United States under President Obama’s executive actions.
Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez was allowed in August 2013 to remain in the U.S., following his request about seven months earlier to stay under the president’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Leon Rodriguez.
Rodriquez acknowledged in a letter to a top Republican senator that Rangel-Hernandez’s application was approved, even though a federal crime database indicated he was a “known gang member.”
“Based on the standard procedures and protocols in place at the time, the DACA request and related employment authorization should not have been approved,” said Rodriguez, in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who had raised questions about the case.
White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki, in an interview Wednesday on Fox News, declined to address the Rangel-Hernandez case specifically – or whether illegal immigrants who engage in criminal activity are being allowed to stay in the U.S. under DACA or similar executive actions. (DACA is intended to give a deportation reprieve to some illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.)
“Let me tell you what DACA is about,” Psaki told Fox News. “It’s not about not only giving a path [to citizenship] to individuals who are in the United States. It’s morally right… I can’t go into detail on every specific case. This is something that there are a number of steps in place that we take to look at who benefits from it.”
Rangel-Hernandez, originally from Mexico, is now charged with first-degree murder in connection with the killings in February in North Carolina of four people, including former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Mirjana Puhar.
“This statement by USCIS confirms what we have feared – that USCIS is not doing a thorough job reviewing the individuals who it allows to stay in this country under the president’s deferred action program” Grassley said in a written statement.
“It’s no secret that USCIS staff is under intense pressure to approve every DACA application that comes across their desk. And based on this information, it’s clear that adequate protocols are not in place to protect public safety. The fact is that this tragedy could have been avoided if the agency had a zero-tolerance policy with regard to criminal aliens and gang members.”
At the time his request was considered, Rangel-Hernandez already was in deportation proceedings. He earlier came to the attention of Immigration and Customs Enforcement after a 2012 arrest for marijuana possession, for which the charges were subsequently dismissed.
Rodriguez, in his letter, said there is “no indication” that immigration officers were aware at that time he was a known gang member. However, he said a separate database indicated he was. He said USCIS has provided new training.
Hermes Rivera, a 25-year-old illegal alien living in Kenner, La., has been charged with three counts of aggravated rape against a 10-year-old girl, according to reports from the local ABC affiliate.
Rivera was arrested after the girl’s mother, who was reportedly dating Rivera, saw a video on her daughter’s cell phone on April 16 in which the girl claimed she and Rivera had “made love.”
“The mother confronted her daughter about the video, at which time the 10-year-old disclosed the sexual acts occurred in their bedroom,” a press release from the Kenner Police Department stated.
“Once speaking to her daughter, the mother confronted her boyfriend, Hermes Rivera, who then admitted to engaging in sexual intercourse with her daughter on three different occasions,” the police said.
When police arrived on the scene later that day, Rivera admitted to having sex with the young girl three times between March and April 3, 2015, claiming that “she asked him to have sex with her,” police said.
Lt. Brian McGregor of the Kenner Police Department told CNSNews.com Wednesday that local police had not been able to locate a prior criminal history for Rivera.
“This individual had no prior criminal history, at least not locally that we were able to find,” McGregor confirmed.
The press release stated an immigration detainer has been placed on Rivera.
The tragic story is similar to an incident in March, when Ramiro Ajualip, a 27-year-old illegal alien, was charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy of a 10-year-old girl in Russellville, Ala.
Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett said Ajualip had been in the country about four weeks when the incident occurred in February and was actually living in the home of his victim as a family friend, according to WHNT 19 News. The report stated Ajualip allegedly raped the girl while her family was not home, then threatened her to keep her quiet.
After the girl told her parents what had happened, Ajualip was arrested and confessed to the attack, the report said.
At the time of the report, Ajualip was being held in the Franklin County Jail under a $150,000 bail.
According to weekly detention and departure reports from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, there were 167,527 non-detained convicted criminal aliens in the United States as of Jan. 26 of this year, a congressional hearing revealed Thursday.
House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah.) read the statistic aloud Thursday durin a hearing examining ICE’s priorities and procedures for removing criminal aliens currently living in the United States.
“In that report, it said that there are 167,527 non-detained, final-order convicted criminals on the loose in the United States,” Chaffetz pointed out while questioning ICE Director Sarah Saldana.
“These are people that are here illegally, get caught, convicted, and you release back out into the public,” he said, adding that some of the crimes committed by those who have been released include homicide, sex crimes, child pornography, drunk driving, robbery and kidnapping.
The federal government announced Wednesday that ICE had released about 30,000 convicted criminal aliens from ICE custody in 2014 alone, according to The Washington Times, which first reported the statistic.
As CNSNews.com reported in February, ICE admitted to releasing 36,007 criminal aliens from the agency’s custody in Fiscal Year 2013, including those convicted of sex crimes, homicide, drunk driving, kidnapping and robbery. Of these, 1,000 went on to commit new crimes ranging from assault with a deadly weapon and lewd acts with a child to aggravated assault, robbery, and hit-and-run.
During the hearing, Saldana said that ICE releases criminal aliens back into the community based on the agency’s “discretionary control.”
“Madam Director, if you’re a criminal, will you be deported?” Chaffetz asked Saldana.
“Those are the people we’re looking for, yes,” Saldana responded.
“But they’ve been in your detention. They’ve been detained. I mean they were convicted. They were… were they deported?” Chaffetz pressed.
“They were in the process of being deported,” Saldana claimed. “Everyone in our detention facilities is in the process of being deported, chairman.”
“Well that’s not true. I mean, you regularly release them back out into the public before they get deported, correct?” Chaffetz continued.
Of the roughly 36,000 criminal aliens released by ICE in 2013, about 22,000 were released under ICE’s “discretionary control,” she estimated.
“So you don’t automatically deport them, then?” Chaffetz asked.
“Automatically, sir? No,” Saldana responded, adding that “the law gives us that discretion.”
“And so when we say, if you’re a criminal, you’ll be deported, that’s not necessarily true,” Chaffetz said.
“It is true, sir. It’s in–”
“After they get released back into the public for untold number of times?” Chaffetz asked.
“It does happen. It does happen, yes, and that’s exactly what we’re here to do,” Saldana admitted.
“What does happen? That they get released?” Chaffetz asked.
“Yes,” Saldana said, “Even criminals that are released.
“Those people were released under the laws of the United States,” Saldana added, explaining that according to “due process,” it can easily take “months and even years to deport folks.”
While the entire nation focuses on the growing threat of radical Islamic attacks in the West, there’s still an ongoing war on the southern border of the United States and it just got a lot worse.
Thanks to Obama’s willingness to allow undocumented illegal immigrants into the U.S. military, a situation bound to happen finally did.
A 34-year-old Arizona Army National Guardsman NCO by the name of Raul Portillo was recently busted in an undercover sting and accused of helping Mexican drug cartels safely transport large loads of cocaine and marijuana over the border.
Portillo, a man suspected of living in Mexico, yet serving in the Ariz. National Guard, was using his official military credentials and position to make sure cocaine shipments were brought into the United States without trouble.
He often used his military license to freely cross back and forth over the border without being subject to searches at checkpoints – even using military vehicles and military issued weapons to make his runs.
In total, at least 58 Ariz. National Guardsmen under Portillo’s command were acting as “muscle” for various cartels and being paid thousands of dollars in the process.
Portillo was even able to recruit at least one Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent to make their drug runs even easier and stress free.
Former NYPD officer Iris Aquino said of the situation, “In the case of Portillo, as well as other soldiers and sailors involved in criminal enterprises, the Defense Department and law enforcement agencies appear to be complicit in covering up the crime and misconduct cases involving enlisted ‘undocumented immigrants.’”
“If they’re undocumented, how do you know they’re not criminals or terrorists signing up to serve in the U.S. military?” Aquino said. (H/T RadixNews)
There’s no word on how many additional out of the 58 arrested so far are illegal, but one can wager that we haven’t seen the end of it.
Portillo plead guilty to all charges filed against him and was sentenced to federal prison for his crimes.
Why is Obama terminating soldiers from the military who are actual citizens of the United States and replacing them with undocumented, illegal immigrants?
This is probably a situation that even those who are aware of border patrol security flaws haven’t thought of – but it’s happening right now, unfortunately.
As long as Obama keeps brining in illegal immigrants, situations like this one will continue to happen – even within the ranks of our own military.
Share this on Facebook and Twitter if you think it’s time that someone in power steps up to the plate and does something about our current lack of border security.
According to a Texas border television station, when about 2,000 illegal aliens engage in a mass riot, yelling, overturning tents, and setting fires, it is only a “demonstration.”
“Approximately 2,000 federal inmates were involved in a demonstration at a prison facility in Willacy County,” begins the report by television station KGBT.
The riot took place on Friday at a private prison facility in the city of Raymondville, about 40 miles north of the Texas border with Mexico, as Breitbart Texas reported. The private facility is under contract with the U.S. Bureau of Prisons and holds primarily illegal aliens, as well as other inmates facing federal charges. The facility can hold a total of around 2,900 detainees.
In their reporting of the riot, KGBT gave a detailed report about the massive mobilization needed to quell the rioters and mentioned that three local schools had been placed on lockdown as a response to the “demonstration.”
“Multiple agencies, including federal and state authorities, were called to secure the perimeter of the Willacy County Correctional Center, a privately owned prison contracted through the federal government,” KGBT staff reported.
The station then provided a detailed account of the rioting.
“Some inmates broke out of the housing area and made their way into the recreational yard prompting a lockdown of the prison. Some inmates were seen shaking the fence. Tear gas was used in an attempt to break up the disturbance… Small fires broke out in three of the units, and the Raymondville Fire Department is on scene for precautionary measures,” KGBT reported.
While the story is a chilling account of events, KGBT chose to minimize the seriousness of the situation by calling it a “demonstration,” rather than a prison riot by illegal aliens.
