It's tough to argue that Montgomery County, Maryland hasn't been impacted by a porous southern border. A fifth illegal immigrant was recently arrested by local authorities after allegedly crawling into a 16-year-old girl's bed and raping her at knifepoint.

ABC 7's Kevin Lewis, who has first reported all five alleged rapes, says that "Nelson Reyes-Medrano is accused of crawling into bed with a 16yo Germantown, Md. girl as she napped."

NEW: Nelson Reyes-Medrano is accused of crawling into bed with a 16yo Germantown, Md. girl as she napped. The 46yo proceeded to rape the teen at knifepoint, police say.

This is the fifth undocumented immigrant arrested on rape charges in Montgomery County, Md. in the last month.

Reyes-Medrano is a father of 10 children, six of whom are under the age 18. He has worked as a baker in Prince George’s County since 2016.

Illegal Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed that the suspect is a Salvadoran national illegally residing in the country. The federal agency has placed a detainer on Reyes-Medrano.

As I have previously stated, Montgomery County does not consider itself a sanctuary city, but its policies still place Americans at risk.

While Montgomery County does not officially recognize itself a sanctuary county, its protocol makes it a de facto sanctuary county. This means they do not comply with ICE in most situations.

"Our law enforcement and other support agencies will continue to follow local laws, rules and regulations. As a matter of policy, we do not inquire about anyone's immigration status to support immigration enforcement, nor do we conduct immigration raids or investigations," County Executive Marc Elrich said in a July 2019 government resource page titled, "Montgomery County Supports Immigrants."

"We also encourage residents to seek help from organizations that provide legal assistance and advice, so individuals will know their rights if they are stopped or detained by ICE," County Council President Nancy Navarro added.

A previously deported illegal alien has pleaded guilty to strangling and drowning his ten-year-old cousin after attempting to sexually assault her in 2016 in Cherokee County, Texas.

Gustavo Zavala-Garcia, an illegal alien from Mexico, pleaded guilty on Thursday to murdering Kayla Gomez-Orozco, his cousin by marriage, in 2016 after the girl went missing, CBS Austin reports.

Court records released after the murder reveal gruesome details where Zavala-Garcia kidnapped Gomez-Orozco from a church service and attempted to sexually assault her. According to prosecutors, the illegal alien struck the girl in the head with a blunt object, then strangled and drowned her.

Gomez-Orozco’s body was found days later in a water well at the home where Zavala-Garcia had been living.

As Breitbart News reported, Zavala-Garcia crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally sometime after 2014, when he was first deported for violent crime charges, having been arrested twice for assault that year.

Zavala-Garcia will serve a life sentence without the possibility of parole for the murder.

Over the course of one week, U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended two previously deported rapists as they tried to re-enter the country illegally.

"U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported sex offender Monday after he reentered the country illegally near Nogales. Tucson Sector agents apprehended the Honduran national Monday afternoon. Records checks revealed 30-year-old Elvin Javier Maldonado-Gomez had been convicted in Gwinnet County, Georgia, for statutory rape in 2013," U.S. Customs and Border Protection released on August 27, 2019. "He served five years in jail before being deported in January 2019. Maldonado-Gomez will be held in federal custody, facing immigration charges for the illegal re-entry of a previously deported felon."

Caught in the same sector, another man convicted of the sexual assault of a child was apprehended.

"U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported sex offender discovered among a group of illegal immigrants in eastern Arizona early Monday. Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents encountered the group of two men, one woman, and a juvenile while responding to a request for assistance from a Greenlee County Sheriff’s deputy near Clifton, Arizona," details about the arrest state. "Agents interviewing the group learned all five Mexican nationals were illegally present in the country. Records checks revealed one of the men, 32-year-old Zacarias Bautista-Emiliano, had an extensive criminal history in the United States. Bautista-Emiliano was found guilty in California of sexual crimes against a child in 2013. Due to extensive immigration violations, Bautista also had received a lifetime ban from entering the United States."

Earlier in August, another seven-time deportee and convicted child sex offender was arrested illegally crossing the border.

Yes, Townhall's website is re-loading perfectly fine. No, you are not reading the same news story again, though it certainly feels that way. And who could blame you for thinking that you have deja vu while reading about this case? On Thursday, ABC 7's Kevin Lewis reported that police in Montgomery County, Maryland have arrested an illegal immigrant on molestation charges. This has now occurred again, and again, and again, and again, and again. That's right, this is now the sixth individual illegally in the country accused of sexual offenses in one Maryland county in the past month alone. And here's the kicker -- Montgomery Count Executive Marc Elrich insists he doesn't have a problem and that his jurisdiction isn't a sanctuary county.

Lewis reports that Nestor Lopez-Guzman was arrested by Montgomery County police on August 18th after police were notified that the 21-year-old Salvadoran national sexually abused 12-year-old girl and her brother over a six month period. The unidentified victim told police that on more than one occasion, Lopez-Guzman would touch her legs and try to move his hand up towards her vagina.

She stated that she doesn't believe he ever actually did touch her genitals, because she would kick him and move away before he ever could. But, she stated that these approaches sexual in nature. The accused pervert would say to the minor "how delicious" while making the advances. On one occasion, while Lopez-Guzman held the victim's nine-month-old sister, the suspect is alleged to have forcibly put his hand down the minor's shirt and touching her breasts.

Lewis also reports that "Lopez-Guzman confessed to touching the elementary school-age boy's genitals, claiming it was a 'cultural joke' that's 'common in El Salvador.'"

Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed that Lopez-Guzman is in the country illegally. ICE lodged a detainer on him two days after he was arrested, took him in custody, and released him after he posted an immigration bond.

In mid-August, I reported on the two illegal immigrants accused of repeatedly raping an 11-year-old girl. In July, I reported on the illegal immigrant who targeted more than 25 women addicted to drugs. The foreign national would then offer narcotics in exchange for sex for himself and his associates. Last week, an illegal immigrant accused of first-degree rape and attempted second-degree murder was arrested. Just two days ago, I reported that an illegal alien was arrested for allegedly crawling into a 16-year-old girl's bed and raping her at knifepoint. All of these crimes occurred in Montgomery County.

But, what does Montgomery County Exeutive Elrich have to say on the issue? Well, he told a frustrated Vince Coglianese of WMAL radio in DC on Wednesday, "Look, I understand that tension. But, I mean, are you suggesting we should -- I mean, do you support just deporting all illegal immigrants?"

Pathetic.

But is Montgomery County a sanctuary city? Well, technically not, but it may as well be considered one ...

An illegal alien has been arrested in Montgomery County, Maryland, for alleged sex crimes. This is the seventh such case involving an illegal alien since the end of July.

“Emilio Carrasco-Hernandez, 37, of Hyattsville, is currently charged with second-degree rape, sex abuse of a minor, third-degree sex offense and fourth-degree sex offense,” ABC 7’s Kevin Lewis reported.

“According to ICE, Carrasco-Hernandez is a Honduran national living in the U.S. illegally. In April 2017, a federal immigration judge deported the then 35-year-old. He later illegally re-entered the U.S. on an unknown date and by unknown means.”

Lewis has reported extensively on crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens in Montgomery County, which also has a heavy presence of MS-13 gang activity.
Late this week, Lewis reported that Nestor Lopez-Guzman, a 21-year-old Salvadoran national illegally residing in the U.S., had allegedly molested a 12-year-old girl and her younger brother.

Lopez-Guzman reportedly told authorities that touching a young boy’s genitals was a “cultural joke” and that it was “common in El Salvador.”

“Since July 25, Montgomery County Police have arrested at least seven confirmed undocumented immigrants for alleged rapes and sexual assaults,” Fox News reported. “Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich signed an executive order last month designating the county a ‘sanctuary’ jurisdiction.”

The executive order prohibits all county agencies and law enforcement officials from cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. Usually, the only areas that are designated as ‘sanctuaries’ are controlled by Democrats, which oftentimes puts the public in harm’s way because offenders are released into the public versus being deported.

One of the more heinous stories that Lewis reported on over the last month involved two illegal aliens who allegedly raped a young girl.
“29yo Mauricio Berrera-Navidad of Damascus, Md. + 28yo Carlos Palacios-Amaya of Gaithersburg, Md. are accused of raping an 11-year-old Germantown, Md. girl,” Lewis tweeted. “MoCo Police say the men (both friends with the victim’s older brother) committed the rapes on separate occasions.”

“One suspect orally, vaginally and anally raped the middle schooler on multiple occasions, authorities allege,” Lewis added. “The victim recalled one instance where that same suspect ‘used his cell phone to video record the two of them having sex,’ police noted.”

A United States American citizen who resides in Mexico has been arrested on charges of "encouraging aliens to enter resulting in death and bringing aliens without presentation for financial gain" after three Chinese illegal immigrants were recently found dead in the trunk of his car in San Diego.
The victims found in Neil Edwin Valera's BMW were a Chinese mother and her 15-year-old son as well as an unidentified woman. Witnesses called police after smelling the rotting bodies on August 11.

"San Diego police received an emergency 911 call from a person reporting a foul odor and blood dripping from a suspicious vehicle," the United States Justice Department said in a press release.

"The wind would start to blow a little bit, you can smell like, a really, like, it’s hard to explain. I’ve never smelled that before but I thought, well, maybe it was like trash or, you know, like that kind of smell but a very more pungent odor than that," a neighbor told local media.

According to the authorities, Valera's car was seen crossing the Mexican-American border on August 9th.

"These tragic cases are grim reminders that attempting to cross into the United States illegally in the trunk of a car – and putting your faith, hope and future in the hands of smugglers – is extremely dangerous," U.S. Attorney Robert Brewer said in a statement.

"My office will aggressively prosecute those who smuggle others into the United States for financial gain, place vulnerable people in grave danger, and recklessly cause deaths," he added.

Valera was arraigned in federal court on September 3.

The United States Attorney's office in the Eastern District of North Carolina announced on Wednesday that two illegal immigrants have been indicted in federal court on separate illegal re-entry charges.

According to a press release sent out by U.S. Attorney Robert Higdon, a 28-year-old Mexican national named Eduardo Lopez-Hernandez was indicted after being apprehended in Wayne County. Lopez-Hernandez has been previously deported nine times. He has been charged with illegal re-entry four times.

A 62-year-old Mexican national named Miguel Salgado-Naranjo was also arrested in Johnston County after allegedly being deported for selling cocaine. According to the press release, if convicted, he "would face maximum penalties of 20 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and a term of supervised release following any term of imprisonment."

These indictments come just weeks after North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper vetoed a state bill requiring local police to cooperate with federal authority such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

"This bill, in addition to being unconstitutional, weakens law enforcement in North Carolina by mandating sheriffs to do the job of federal agents, using local resources that could hurt their ability to protect their counties," Cooper told media.

Mecklenburg County Sheriff Gary McFadden also spoke out about the bill. "I recognize that other sheriffs and communities may have differing views and policies about immigration," McFadden said. "However, we all can agree that HB370 usurps the power of every sheriff and local community to set their own policies."

Earlier this summer, ICE directly blamed McFadden for endangering American lives after the federal authority tracked down an alleged illegal alien child rapist who was released from custody by McFadden.

"This is yet another example of a clear public safety threat being released onto the streets of Mecklenburg County rather than into ICE custody due to the current sheriff’s policy on ICE non-cooperation,” ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Atlanta Field Office Director Sean Gallagher said at the time.

"The Mecklenburg County sheriff’s decision to restrict cooperation with ICE serves as an open invitation to aliens who commit criminal offenses that Mecklenburg County is a safe haven for persons seeking to evade federal authorities, and residents of Mecklenburg County are less safe today than last year due to these policies," he added.

The arrest of an illegal alien could have been accomplished with far less threat to the public had it not been for California’s sanctuary city policies, says a local sheriff.

“This person is not a legal citizen within the United States,” said Merced Sheriff Van Warnke.

“We had him in our custody in January of this year,” he continued. “And because of the folks in Sacramento limiting our ability to cooperate with ICE, we could not turn him over.”

51-year-old Guadalupe Lopez-Herrera shot a sheriff’s deputy on Wednesday and fled the scene. Police later caught up with him after a high speed car chase on Thursday.

He sped away at speeds reaching 120 mph and fired more shots at the police before being foiled by a spike strip.
JUST IN: deputy shooting suspect Guadalupe Lopez-Herrera is officially at Merced County Jail. He was evaluated at a hospital in Los Banos before being brought here.

Van Warnke indicated that Lopez-Herrera will be charged with attempted murder of the sheriff’s deputy, among other charges.

California is among the worst states when it comes to “sanctuary city” policies that aim to hamstring federal efforts to enforce immigration laws by forbidding cooperation from local law enforcement agencies.

“Bottom line is our immigration policies need to be revamped because we’re gonna continue to have more of this situation happen,” said Van Warnke.

“We knew ahead of time this guy’s potential for violence was there,” he added.

Six of the seven people charged in the stabbing death of a man in Maryland in July have been identified by federal officials as being part of the MS-13 gang and in the country illegally, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The Baltimore County Police Department announced Tuesday that seven suspects, including a 16-year-old charged as an adult, were charged with killing 21-year-old Daniel Alejandro Alvarado Cuellar.

Cuellar’s body was discovered July 31 in the grass outside an apartment building in the Townson area and had “multiple sharp-force injuries,” officials said in a news release.

Police said that Cuellar was the intended victim of a planned gang-related murder, but said a motive for the slaying remained under investigation.
“We know this group of individuals was conducting surveillance on him, they were watching him, following him. We know they watched as he left the laundromat and went back across the street to the apartment complex and that is where some of those individuals accosted him,” Baltimore County Police Officer Jennifer Peach told Fox 45. “We know they used knives and multiple people stabbed him multiple times.”

The seven suspects were all charged with first-degree murder, according to police.

They have been identified as Jonathan Escobar-Hernandez, 20, of Towson, Md.; Marlon Leonardo Fabian-Flores, 20, of Manchester, Md.; Edwin Edgardo Garcia-Martir, 18, of Middle River, Md.; Hugo Portillo-Chavez, 31, of Cockeysville, Md.; Jose Fausto Rivera-Coreas, 19, of Cockeysville, Md.; Odaliz Rosas-Yanez, 20, of Cockeysville, Md.; and Leonel Alexander Velasquez-Hernadez, 16, of Cockeysville, Md.

An ICE spokeswoman told Fox News on Sunday that the agency has issued six immigration detainers. The federal agency said that detainers were lodged once the individuals entered local law enforcement custody on murder charges.

Of the seven suspects, six are in the U.S. illegally, the ICE spokeswoman added. Of the six illegal immigrant suspects, who were not named, five are Salvadoran and one is Mexican, ICE said.

All of the six illegal immigrants were identified as MS-13 members in an ICE gang database, the ICE spokeswoman said.

Investigators believe that Cuellar’s killing was due to a war between two rival Latino street gangs, the 18th Street and MS-13, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The 21-year-old had been seen making a hand gesture that was believed to be “indicative of an affiliation with the 18th Street,” detectives wrote in charging documents obtained by the Sun.

The seven suspects arrested in connection with Cuellar’s slaying remain held without bail in the Baltimore County Detention Center, according to police. All seven could face a life sentence in prison if they are convicted, officials said, while adding that it’s possible that others may also face charges in connection to the murder.

MS-13 is active in Maryland, but is usually focused in the suburbs around Washington D.C. Earlier this year, a 14-year-old girl was killed with a machete and a baseball bat when MS-13 gang members turned on an associate “in extremely violent behavior.”

That slaying came only months after authorities arrested five MS-13 gang members for the murder of another MS-13 member, Jacson Chicas, 16. He was stabbed more than 100 times and then dumped on the side of a Virginia road and set on fire.

In 2019, officials said that MS-13 has been ramping up recruitment in the D.C. area after taking a break in 2018.

“We’ve seen a rise in gang activity here this spring. There have been a few homicides in the region, as you’ve seen,” Jay Lanham, director of the Northern Virginia Gang Task Force, told Fox 5 in June. “Last year, we saw the gangs, especially MS-13, laying low. We arrested a lot of the program and clique leaders so their leadership was lacking.”

Lanham said at the time that the 18th Street Gang is MS-13’s top rival.

MS-13, also known as La Mara Salvatrucha, recruits young teenagers from El Salvador and Honduras, though many gang members were born in the U.S. The gang has been blamed for dozens of killings since January 2016 across a wide swath of New York’s Long Island, the Los Angeles area, and the D.C suburbs.

The notorious MS-13 gang has been singled out by President Trump for its brutality, which has led to a series of crackdowns by law enforcement on the federal and local levels.

Montgomery County continues to pose a threat to the American public at large with its de facto sanctuary city policies providing a safe-haven for illegal immigrants. In the past two months, there have been at least eight men unlawfully in the country arrested on charges of rape, sexual assault, and other lewd offenses. On Monday, ABC 7's Kevin Lewis reported that foreign national 26-year-old Oluwakayode Adebusuyi allegedly raped an intoxicated woman in his car on August 28. More egregiously, the Nigerian citizen was actually arrested in 2018 for similar sex offenses but had all charges dropped.

Lewis reports that "Last summer, MoCo Police charged Adebusuyi with 2nd-degree assault, 4th-degree sex offense and false imprisonment. Prosecutors dropped all counts in that case for unspecified reasons. Adebusuyi had been employed as a ride-share driver up until his most recent arrest."

Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed that Adebusuyi is indeed an illegal immigrant. ICE has placed a detainer request, but it is unlikely that MoCo police will comply.

"A judge gave Adebusuyi a $250,000 bond. He remains in custody. Should Adebusuyi post bond, MoCo will give ICE a courtesy call, but it won't hold the accused rapist beyond the normal jail release process. MoCo has also banned ICE from entering secure portions of the jail," Lewis tweeted.

As Matt covered, the leaders of MoCo are nowhere to be found on the abundance of illegal immigrant crime in the county. Instead, they choose to blame others and cast aspersions against conservatives. From FoxDC 5, we learned that local officials released, in part, the following statement:

"There has been a lot [of] inaccurate information spread by the White House, President Trump, Acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli, local and national conservative news outlets and neo-Nazi sympathizers regarding our criminal justice system and its process. These individuals and organizations should be ashamed for spreading false information seeking to establish a baseless, illogical and xenophobic connection between a person’s failure to obtain legal status and their propensity to commit a sex crime."​
Here's what Matt said about it:

Wait, did these clowns just refer to Montgomery County police as…neo-Nazis...Yet, this is what you paid for, MontCo liberals. You don’t want to deport these bad apples, and now they’re wreaking havoc. Enough with the xenophobia smears too. That’s such a tried talking point and absolute garbage. These people have already raped our citizens. They also entered our country illegally—and you have policies that protect them because you refuse to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This rests with you guys.​
Sadly, we can expect more stories like these to continue so long as leftists refuse to confront America's border and illegal immigration problem.

Border Patrol agents continue capturing convicted criminals who have previously been kicked out of the country. On Monday authorities apprehended a Mexican man with a record in Nevada who had been removed last year.

“Agents conducted records checks, which revealed that the man, later identified as Mauricio Moreno-Garcia, a 26-year-old Mexican national, was convicted of Sexual Lewdness w/Child less than 14 years of age in 2016 out of the state of Nevada. Moreno was sentenced to 24-60 months confinement for his conviction,” CBP reported.

The agency noted that he had been “removed from the United States on January 11, 2018 as an aggravated felon,” and said that he “is being held in federal custody pending further criminal prosecution.”

Last Friday Border Patrol agents arrested several people who were traveling in two vehicles that were trying to avoid an immigration checkpoint. “After a brief pursuit, Ysleta Station agents stopped both vehicles in order to perform immigration inspections. Seven subjects from both vehicles attempted to flee and six were eventually taken into custody,” according to CBP. One of the people captured was a previously deported Salvadoran man with a disturbing criminal record:

Rivas-Marquez had been charged with multiple related sex offenses against a victim less than 13 years old and was convicted of five counts of indecent liberties. Sentenced to 50 years in prison, Rivas-Marquez was granted a 48-year suspended sentence under stipulation that he never return to the United States, or he would immediately be returned to prison to serve the remaining 48 years of his sentence. Rivas Marquez is currently in custody pending criminal prosecution for 8 USC 1326 (re-entry after removal) and other criminal proceedings.​
CBP’s press release also said that “It is important to note that an arrest should not be considered evidence of guilt, and subjects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.”

The persistent problem of illegal alien criminals reentering the country demonstrates the need to carefully control who enters the U.S.

Earlier this week Townhall highlighted the September 4th arrest of a Mexican man who had previously been deported in 2012 and 2016—the illegal alien had been “convicted of molestation of a minor and sexual battery in 2015 by Fulton County, Georgia,” according to CBP.

A man illegally in the United States has been arrested after allegedly threatening to stab and kill a dog and the dog's owner Wednesday night. The alleged crime took place in Merrimack, New Hampshire.

According to CBS Boston, Sarbelio Lorenzo-Zacarias of Springfield, Mass. was "charged with felony level criminal threatening with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor animal cruelty."

According to the unnamed victim, Lorenzo-Zacarias was a house guest who picked up his dog and held a knife to its neck. He said he was going to stab the animal, and motioned that he would harm another house guest as well. The dog was a "a Maltese mix named Niko." Police were called and the suspect fled the scene.

Merrimack authorities later discovered Lorenzo-Zacarias hiding in a nearby bush. Police notified Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who confirmed the suspect was an illegal immigrant.

"During the booking process, officers found that Lorenzo-Zacarias may be in the country illegally," police said. "An Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent responded and confirmed that he is not here legally."

Lorenzo-Zacarias was not given any bail. ICE placed a detainer request on the illegal immigrant. Police confirmed that he was drunk upon arrest. He is being held in a local jail until arraignment.

2020 Democratic presidential frontunner Joe Biden recently praised illegal immigrants in the Granite State, saying that, "One of the things that in fact is a myth is that, quote, ‘those people here undocumented cost millions of dollars in social security."

"They extend the life of social security because more people are out there working and then paying into social security," he added. "They are, in fact, part of the reason why we’re in a better position than any country in the world to own the 21st century because we have replacement workers.'"

The United States Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost released data regarding the number of gang members apprehended by her men and women in her agency during the 2019 fiscal year through August. According to Provost, BP has arrested at least 445 individuals from the notorious Mara Salvatruchaa gang.

"This fiscal year through August, Border Patrol agents have encountered & arrested 933 criminal gang members. Some smuggling, some being smuggled, some sneaking in, and some already here," Provost tweeted.

These numbers include the following gangs:

MS-13: 445
18th Street: 165
Paisas: 82
Surenos: 68
Latin Kings: 21
Tango Blast: 19​

As I reported on Tuesday, feds recently arrested six illegal immigrants in relation to MS-13 gang violence after they allegedly killed an 18th Street gang member in Towson, Maryland".

Baltimore County police announced last week that six out of seven suspects arrested in a gruesome gang related murder of a 21-year-old Maryland man were illegal immigrants.
Fox News reports that Daniel Alejandro Alvarado Cuella was stabbed to death in July by members of the Mara-Salvatrucha gang, aka MS-13. Cuella's body was found in a Towson apartment with multiple wounds on July 31.​

President Donald J. Trump has long called attention to the problem posed by MS-13. In 2017, he promised to deport every MS-13 gang member from the country:

"To any member of MS-13 listening, I have a message for you," the President said at the time. "We will find you, we will arrest you, we will jail you, we will throw you the hell out of the country."

U.S. Border Patrol Agents continue apprehending previously convicted sex offenders. Authorities came to the aid of a twice-convicted and twice-deported man who called 911 after getting lost. The man had two convictions in the U.S. for “sex with a minor,” according to CBP.

“Tucson Sector agents apprehended Adrian Castro-Garcia, a 33-year-old Mexican national illegally present in the country, late Monday evening. Castro-Garcia called 911 after he became lost in the desert after illegally crossing the international border. Agents quickly located him and provided medical attention,” CBP explained.

CBP reported that this man had been “convicted of sex with a minor in 2013 and again in 2014 by Los Angeles County, California. In both cases he was sentenced to more than 150 days of incarceration” and each time he was removed from United States subsequent to serving each sentence.

A different press release highlights the arrest of another Mexican man previously convicted of a sexual offense in the United States: “Agents apprehended Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias, 55, a citizen of Mexico, after he entered the United States illegally. During processing, records checks revealed that he was convicted in 1992 of felony sexual abuse, in Polk County, Oregon,” CBP noted.

Authorities also arrested a Mexican man wanted in both Oregon and Mexico when he illegally entered the United States along with two other people. “Records checks revealed one of the men, Juan Francisco Espinosa-Burgos, to be wanted for rape in Oregon City, Oregon. He is also wanted in Mexico for homicide,” CBP’s press release said.

Earlier this week I highlighted the September 4th arrest of a Mexican man deported in 2012 and 2016 who had a 2015 conviction “of molestation of a minor and sexual battery in 2015 by Fulton County, Georgia,” according to CBP. Authorities also apprehended a Mexican man on Monday who had been removed from the country last year—he had been “convicted of Sexual Lewdness w/Child less than 14 years of age in 2016 out of the state of Nevada,” CBP reported.

As Tim highlighted yesterday, U.S. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost tweeted some statistics noting that “This fiscal year through August, Border Patrol agents have encountered & arrested 933 criminal gang members.”

All of this underscores the importance of carefully controlling who enters the country because as Border Patrol Chief Provost noted in another tweet, “Border security is national security.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Chief Carla Provost announced over the weekend that since the beginning of the year, agents working along the southern border with Mexico have arrested more than 4,000 illegal aliens with serious criminal records.

These numbers come as border officials tout an overall decrease in illegal border crossings in recent months, crediting President Trump's policies, while stressing the crisis is ongoing and the need for Congress to act is still dire.

"We’re still in a crisis. It’s still both border security and humanitarian by virtue of what we are seeing, even last month," CBP Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez said during an interview with Fox News last week. "Our colleagues in immigration and customs enforcement, they are the primary agency charged with longer-term detention. We at customs and border protection, and particularly the border patrol, both at our ports of entry and at those stations, are really short-term holding facilities. As everybody knows, over the course of the summer they became absolutely oversaturated. These are facilities that were never meant to hold people long-term.”

"Congress just got back in town. It is time for them to get to work with us to find lasting solutions to this ongoing challenge," he continued. "What I can tell you by virtue of nearly 27 years of experience and being a career law enforcement professionals is this: it’s that the challenges and the loopholes to the legal framework that have been fueling first the border security crisis that evolved into a humanitarian crisis have been present through several administrations. Not just the last two – in some cases even beyond that."

An illegal alien from Guatemala, who entered the United States illegally after being deported twice, admitted to drinking and driving before a crash that killed Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson and his driver Jeffrey Monroe last year. Today, Manuel Orrego-Zavala was sentenced to 43-months in federal prison for illegal re-entry into the country. At the time of the crash, he fled the scene.

“Mr. Orrego-Zavala re-entered the country illegally for the second time before he put the public safety of Indianapolis at risk and took the lives of two innocent men on Feb. 4, 2018,” U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler released in a statement. “This prosecution represents our office’s commitment to charging aliens that illegally re-enter the country, especially if they are a risk to public safety or there is a criminal history present.”

Prior to his first deportation in 2007, Orrego-Zavala committed two felonies in California. After re-entering the United States illegally a second time, he was deported again in 2009. He again re-entered illegally before killing Jackson and Monroe, who Orrego-Zavala hit with his car while they were pulled to the side of the road. In addition to the federal sentence of 42-months, Orrego-Zavala will serve 16 years in state prison for deaths of Jackson and Monroe while driving under the influence of alcohol.

“This individual’s criminal and immigration histories clearly demonstrate a total disregard for U.S. law,” Special Agent in Charge James Gibbons said in a statement. “Let this sentence serve as a reminder that Homeland Security Investigations prioritizes the prosecution of those who are intent on disrespecting our laws and putting the community at risk.”

The Indianapolis Colts released the following statement at the time of Jackson's death:

“We were heartbroken to hear the news of Edwin Jackson’s passing. Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization. We admired his outgoing personality, competitive spirit and hard-working mentality. He was well-respected among all with whom he crossed paths, and he will be greatly missed in our locker room and throughout our entire organization. We also understand that another person lost his life in the accident, only adding to our sorrow on this day. We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this difficult time.”​

Earlier this year a congressional probe revealed that migrants from terrorist nations are trying to enter the United States through Mexico at record rates. Among the most alarming statistics included in the investigative report was an astounding 300% increase in Bangladeshi nationals attempting to sneak into the country through Texas alone. This month federal authorities arrested a Mexican-based Bangladeshi smuggler in Houston and charged him with bringing in 15 fellow countrymen through the Texas-Mexico border. His name is Milon Miah and he lives in Tapachula, in the southeast Mexican state of Chiapas bordering Guatemala. Just a few months ago Judicial Watch reported large groups of Africans, Indians, Bangladeshis, Afghans, Syrians and Pakistanis are in Tapachula awaiting asylum in the U.S. as part of the monstrous Central American caravan.

Africa is a hotbed of Islamic terrorismLately Bangladesh has had a greater presence in the Mexican border region though Syria and Yemen are also well represented. In the recent Texas case, the Bangladeshi smuggler was arrested after arriving on a flight at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. The feds say that, from March 2017 to August 2018, Miah brought 15 Bangladeshi nationals to the United States at the Texas border in exchange for payment. He housed and fed the illegal aliens in Tapachula then provided them with plane tickets to locations in northern Mexico, according to federal prosecutors. One of his associates, Moktar Hossain, has pleaded guilty for his role in the illicit scheme. Hossain handled operations in Monterrey, in the northeastern Mexican state of Nuevo León, where the aliens would stay before the last leg of their trek to the United States. “Hossain paid drivers to transport the aliens to the U.S. border, and gave them instructions how to cross the Rio Grande River,” according a statement issued by federal prosecutors in Texas., according to the State Department, and Bangladesh is a south Asian Islamic country well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). Last year 630 Bangladeshi nationals tried to enter the U.S. illegally in Laredo, Texas alone, marking the 300% increase from the previous year. The figures help confirm what Judicial Watch uncovered years ago as part of an ongoing investigation into the national security threats created by the porous southern border; Mexico is a hotbed of Islamic terrorism that immediately threatens the U.S. Islamic jihadists are training in southern border towns near American cities and have joined forces with Mexican drug cartels to infiltrate the United States. A few years ago, a high-ranking Homeland Security official confirmed to Judicial Watch that Mexican drug traffickers help Islamic terrorists stationed in Mexico cross into the U.S. to explore targets for future attacks. Among the jihadists that traveled back and forth through the porous southern border was a Kuwaiti named Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir, an ISIS operative who lives in the Mexican state of Chihuahua not far from El Paso. Another was a Saudi Al Qaeda operative, Adnan G. El Shurkrjumah, wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) during his cross-border jaunts.

The Miah-Hossain operation is part of a broader crisis involving a growing demographic of illegal aliens from terrorist nations entering the U.S. through the Mexican border. The government classifies them as Special Interest Aliens (SIA) and they are flowing north via Latin America in huge numbers thanks to established Transitional Criminal Organizations (TCO) that facilitate travel along drug and migrant smuggling routes. Tens of thousands of SIAs—from the Middle East, Asia and Africa—entered Panama and Colombia in the past few years. Nearly all the SIA migrants were headed to the United States and most came from Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Bangladesh and India. Encounters with the special interest individuals resulted in the seizure of tens of thousands of fraudulent documents—including passports and visas—that facilitated travel from their countries of origin through the Americas, according to the previously cited congressional investigation.

A 39-year-old Mexican national by the name of Melecio Lopez-Hernandez was sentenced to more than five years in jail for attacking a Border Patrol agent. According to Lopez-Hernandez's defense team, the illegal alien was startled when the Border Patrol agent approached. He attacked the agent because he thought the guy was a cow, KVEO-TV reported.

Lopez-Hernandez was attempting to illegally cross the border when a Border Patrol agent spotted him. The agent attempted to apprehend the illegal alien, at which point the two struggled. Lopez-Hernandez managed to get a hold of the agent's flash light that was clipped onto the agent.

When the agent attempted to apprehend Lopez-Hernandez, he took the flashlight that was attached to the agent's vest. He threatened the agent before striking him over the head with the flashlight.

Court records revealed the incident took place on February 7, 2019. A records check revealed a previous deportation in August 2017. Additional court records show the man was also deported in December 2005 after being apprehended in Duval County, Texas. The Mexican national pleaded guilty to illegal re-entry after removal and the court sentenced him in October 2016 to 21 months in federal prison. Immigration officers removed him again to Mexico on August 28, 2017.​
At trial, the defendant’s attorneys attempted to convince the court that Lopez-Hernandez did not mean to assault a Border Patrol agent. Instead, they claimed Lopez-Hernandez mistook the agent for a cow. “The judge was not persuaded,” KVUE reported.​
If the migrant had been convicted again for illegal re-entry after removal, a federal felony, he could have received up to 20 years in prison.​
