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 January 4-10
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.
Illegal Alien Causes Death of Fire Captain’s Son
Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo, 44, was arrested on charges of criminally negligent homicide and driving without a license or insurance after he swerved into oncoming traffic on a highway, causing a chain reaction crash and taking the life of Pierce Corcoran. Pierce, 22, was the son of Knoxville Fire Capt. D.J. Corcoran.
Francisco-Eduardo was released from Knox County Detention Center into the custody of ICE, where he awaits trial.
Tennessee is not a sanctuary state, and newly-elected GOP representative Tim Burchett from the second congressional district called Corcoran’s death “tragic” and “entirely avoidable.”
“Based on the details released at this point, this situation underscores the need to fully enforce our existing immigration laws and strengthen and secure our border,” Burchett said. “The bottom line is if the suspect hadn’t been in the country illegally, Pierce Corcoran would still be alive.”
Previously Deported Immigrant Rapes Teen
A 27-year-old previously deported Mexican national with a prior criminal record was arrested for raping a teen after illegally reentering the U.S. Amancio Betancourt Martinez was convicted of felony cocaine trafficking in 2014 and sentenced to ten years in prison, though that was divided into three years in jail and two years of supervised probation. After receiving 542 days of jail credit, he was deported on Dec. 31, 2015.
Alabaster police department contacted ICE regarding the alleged rape of the teen. Federal and local authorities found Martinez at a jobsite where he was working and used his fingerprints to identify him. He is currently in Shelby County Jail and could face reinstatement of the 10-year prison sentence on top of his current charge since he was on probation at the time.
Migrant Man Attempted Rape on Migrant Woman While Holding Her Baby
El Paso, TX
A Guatemalan man attempted to rape a female immigrant while she bathed her toddler in a hotel where both resided as part of a shelter program for immigrants. The woman claimed she had left the door to her room unlocked so that volunteers could come in when Francisco Maldonado Tojin, 23, entered. She told him to leave, but he allegedly began groping the woman under her clothing and pressed himself against her “in a lewd manner,” police said.
Tojin and the victim were being housed at the Budget Inn motel by the nonprofit group Annunciation House, which provides shelter to immigrants released by ICE and Border Protection. Volunteers heard the woman screaming and rushed to help her.
“Yesterday morning, we called the police because one of the mothers that was released to us — one of the refugees that was released to us — staying at one of the hotels that we use to provide hospitality for refugees being released, started screaming and asking for help. The volunteers who were very close to where she was responded immediately,” Annunciation House executive director Ruben Garcia said. “There was a man inside the room. He was asked to leave the room. We called the police. The police came and made an arrest.”
Officers found Tojin in his room that he shared with his six-year-old son. He was charged with burglary of habitation with intent to commit a sexual offense, and is being held on a $30,000 bond. The boy was turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol and is currently in the custody of the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement.
School Employee Arrested for Child Porn
Contra Costa County, CA
Francisco Perez, 34, was arrested on three felony counts of child pornography after Google alerted authorities.
“The tip from Google revealed that a user was storing files that contained possible images of child pornography,” district attorney spokeswoman Bobbi Mauler said in a statement.
Google contacted local law enforcement about his online searches in November. Deputy District Attorney Bryan Tierney said Perez worked at San Domenico School in San Anselmo as a food service contractor. He allegedly got the job by producing a false name and social security number because he is an undocumented immigrant.
North Carolina for Immigration Reform and Enforcement (NCFIRE)
NCFIRE keeps a monthly report on child rapes committed by illegal immigrants. For the month of December 2018, there were 20 aliens arrested on 52 charges.
Think about that. There were 52 acts of sexual crimes against children in a 31-day period just in one state. And that doesn’t count for those that were never reported. And the left still thinks a border wall is stupid?
