Editor’s note: This is the first installment of a weekly crime report highlighting serious crimes committed by illegal aliens in our country.
Illegal immigration may be a hot topic for politicians running for office, but as Americans, it should be an even greater area of concern. The left is determined to make us an open border country, allowing any and everyone in, no matter their criminal background. That’s why I feel it is important to highlight the serious crimes committed by so many illegal immigrants in this weekly report.
Week of August 9 – August 15, 2018
Welcome to this first installment of our illegal immigrant crime watch. This is not an analysis, but rather a report of the more serious crimes committed by illegal aliens. While there may have been many more, hundreds even, arrests of illegal aliens for simple infractions, here we concentrate only on the most dangerous of offenses. This, our first week, has been rather busy and just further demonstrates the need to get control over the illegal immigrant population in our country.
ICE: 45 Arrests in 5-Day Operation
The local enforcement operation targeted at-large criminal aliens in the Houston area, ending with the apprehension of 45 illegal immigrants On August 10. Of those arrested, 42 had prior criminal convictions, 15 had been previously deported, and many had felony convictions which included rape, child exploitation, drug trafficking, assault and robbery, such as:
- In Houston, a 29-year-old Turkish national convicted of child exploitation.
- In Houston, a previously removed 43-year-old Honduran national convicted of rape.
- In Houston, a 44-year-old Cuban national convicted of burglary.
- In Tomball, a twice-removed 46-year-old Mexican national convicted of burglary and drug trafficking.
ICE reported that individuals arrested during the operation included nationals from Argentina, Chile, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Mexico, Nigeria, and Turkey.
Murder Suspect Removed from U.S.
Newark, New Jersey
ICE officials removed an El Salvadoran man wanted for a homicide in his country. Brian Alejandro Martinez, 32, who has also gone by the name Maximiliano Cornejo, was removed from the U.S. on August 10. Martinez has illegally entered the U.S. repeatedly and has been arrested several times over many years.
“This individual’s egregious immigration history and serious criminal history in the U.S., as well as being wanted for homicide in his home country, shows that he is a dangerous individual who warranted removal from the community and the U.S.,” said John Tsoukaris, field office director of ERO Newark.
Homicide: Ran Over in Front Yard
Lancaster, South Carolina
A 60-year-old man was killed when Abel Borbonio-Olivio reportedly ran him over while the victim was in his own front yard. Borbonio-Olivio is a 42-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico who also happens to have four previous arrests for driving without a license.
According to reports, Charles Byrdic was in his front yard around 9:30 a.m. getting ready to go to the store to pick up blueberries for his wife, when Borbonio-Olivio’s vehicle veered off the road and slammed into him. He was hit so hard that he was knocked out of his shoes and catapulted from the suspect’s SUV, the family said.
Borbonio-Olivio had two prescription drugs in his system at the time of the crash. According to arrest warrants obtained by The Herald, he did not have a driver’s license, was speeding more than 10 miles over the speed limit, and was looking at money in his wallet at the time.
Byrdic, who survived leukemia and a stroke, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Drug Sales: Two Illegals Arrested
Raleigh, North Carolina
Two suspected illegal immigrants were arrested for possession of drugs with intent to sell.
Luis Angel Cisneros-Garcia, 20, was arrested on the suspicion of having 16 fentanyl pills, 25 Xanax bars, and 2.9 ounces of marijuana, a digital scale for measuring marijuana, and plastic bags usually used to package the drugs for sell. He was held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Damaris Sharbell Martinez-Hernandez, 24, was with Cisneros-Garcia and was arrested for felony cocaine possession, possession of a digital scale, and marijuana possession. She was held on a $3,500 bail.
Federal immigration officers filed notice that they suspected the two were in the U.S. illegally and requested a 48-hour hold before releasing them.
Forty-eight potentially dangerous illegal aliens removed from our streets this week, not a bad start. Remember to check back next week for the second installment of our crime watch.
