Illegal Immigration is more than just a political talking point; the left seems determined to make us an open-borders country no matter the cost. Each week, Liberty Nation recognizes the Americans who must pay it.
Week of June 13-19
Previously Deported and Incarcerated Immigrant Arrested for Murder
Victor Garcia, 26, has been identified as the suspect who allegedly chased down and fatally shot 34-year-old Jesus Valazquez. Garcia isn’t just an illegal immigrant; he served six years in an Arizona prison after being convicted of aggravated assault in 2011.
Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, confirmed Garcia’s illegal status, saying that he had been deported previously, but she did not offer any other details regarding his deportation or the date. In a statement, she said:
“On June 8, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a detainer with the Maricopa County Jail on Victor Garcia-Roman, a previously deported alien from Mexico, following his arrest on local charges, including first-degree murder.”
According to court documents, Garcia called on an unnamed relative for a ride. The relative told police that he witnessed Garcia shooting the victim before climbing into the front seat of the relative’s pickup truck. Witnesses say Garcia shot the victim, who fell to the ground after being struck. Multiple witnesses reported seeing Garcia then shoot Valazquez three to four times in the face while he was still on the ground.
Garcia was picked up by police at his home and is currently detained on a cash-only bond of $1 million. He is being held on charges of one count of first-degree murder and one count of possessing a prohibited weapon.
Previously Deported Man Sets Up Brothel
Previously deported 39-year-old Jose Facio-Santos returned to Milwaukee to set up a brothel. Federal authorities were alerted to this after undercover agents purchased guns and other weapons from the suspect. Officials said Facio-Santos then told the agents about his “other business” and went into detail about the women in his brothel, which he had been running for the past five years.
According to the criminal complaint, nearly 250 women had cycled through the business. The suspect told authorities that he traveled to three different areas, including El Rey (Hispanic grocery store), the airport, and the Milwaukee Intermodal station, to pick up the women. Whenever he had newcomers, he’d send out a text to a long list of customers, telling them that a “fresh woman” had arrived.
Facio-Santos was arrested in 2018 and admitted to prostituting women and selling cocaine, marijuana, and heroin. On June 13, 2019, he pleaded guilty to illegal firearm possession, three felony counts of drug distribution, and transporting a female for purposes of prostitution in interstate commerce.
Twelve years ago, Facio-Santos was detained after a traffic stop, and it was determined he was in the United States illegally. Agents then captured several of his recordings telling relatives he’d need clothes for only a couple of weeks because he planned to reenter the United States illegally after being deported.
