Editor’s Note – The Illegals Crime Report looks at crimes committed in the United States at the hands of those who shouldn’t be in the country.
Week of November 21-27
This week we lost two of our veterans to crimes allegedly committed by illegal immigrants. As ICE struggles to capture those who sneak into our country and commit atrocities upon our citizens, sanctuary cities and states turn these criminals loose on society, making the momentous chore all the more difficult. Surely, political heads will become “woke” to how destructive their lax laws are, and how much more complicated they make it for authorities to keep us safe. Open borders and providing more freedoms to those here illegally than our own citizens enjoy is not the answer. There is humanity, and then there is stupidity.
Illegal Alien Allegedly Murdered Veteran, Held Another Man Hostage
Antonio Lopez Silva, convicted sex offender, was charged on Nov. 18 with the alleged murder of 34-year-old Army veteran Adrian Darren Bonar, and the kidnapping of another male.
On Oct. 17, California Highway Patrol officers discovered Bonar’s body wrapped in a tarp in the trunk of a Lexus. The vehicle had been left deserted for two days in the Anaheim Hills, near the interchange of the 91 Freeway and State Route 241. The victim served during the Iraq War and was the son of Scottish millionaire restaurateur Brian Bonar.
Police went to Silva’s home in Santa Ana and arrested him as a suspect in Bonar’s murder. While there, they discovered an adult male being held hostage, a crime for which Silva was also arrested. The kidnapping victim had been a captive for at least two days.
Authorities have not indicated any known motives for the two crimes, or whether they know of any ties between the three men. According to Sergeant Shane Carringer, law enforcement didn’t believe the suspect was connected to a gang or drug cartel, although at his home they found more than four pounds of fentanyl, two rifles, and two handguns.
In 2014, Silva served a one-year sentence after pleading guilty to the rape of a 12-year-old girl.
Illegal Alien Accused of Dragging Veteran to Death
Nemias Perez Severiano, 31, is accused of hitting a man with a vehicle and then fatally dragging him more than 50 feet. Severiano is a Mexican citizen and is in the United States illegally, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which lodged a detainer request after his arrest.
According to reports, on Nov. 10, Samuel W. Jackson, 67, was exiting his car that was parked in front of his home when Severiano allegedly struck and killed him. Jackson, who served with the Marines in Vietnam from 1970 to 1971, died at a nearby hospital.
In a criminal complaint, the suspect told law enforcement that he’d consumed about seven or eight beers while at a restaurant, admitting to being “a little drunk” when the incident took place. He has been charged with involvement in an accident causing death while not licensed, driving without a license, failing to stop and render aid, and other offenses.
