Customs and Border Patrol agents arrested two groups of illegal immigrants who crossed the southern border with Mexico in Arizona this week. The authorities have revealed that the groups of aliens were from Yemen and Bangladesh, distant countries with national security implications.
Both groups of illegal travelers were arrested in the vicinity of Yuma, Arizona, and were apprehended on Tuesday. The first group of five Bangladeshi migrants was arrested near a county highway. Later in the day, CBP agents busted three Yemeni men who were found west the city of San Luis.
Yemen possesses one of the world’s most pervasive terrorist presences, with large swathes of the country controlled by Al Qaeda and Iranian-supported Shia Islamist groups respectively.
Federal authorities are currently investigating the backgrounds of the migrants for possible national security considerations. All of the men have been charged with immigration law violation.
It’s unusual yet not unprecedented for illegal immigrants to arrive at the southern border from far-fetched locations, but it’s even more questionable in the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic. Authorities have busted Russian, Syrian, and Iranian nationals attempting to infiltrate the southern border before.
Illegal border crossings have declined sharply in correlation with a new set of strict immigration restrictions, allowing for the prompt expulsion of illegal aliens outside of the convoluted and byzantine immigration court system during the coronavirus pandemic. With levels of illegal immigration declining considerably, the President and DHS are considering enacting the temporary coronavirus border restrictions on an extended basis to prevent further introduction of the disease into the country.
It’s possible the arrest of two different national groups on the same day suggests the involvement of sophisticated human smuggling rings.
Illegal Immigrant Arrested in Fatal Virginia Hit-and-Run
Pichinte Echeverria entered the country illegally.
An illegal immigrant has been arrested for his alleged involvement in a Virginia hit-and-run incident that caused the death of a 62-year old man.
Pichinte Echeverria was arrested at his workplace on Monday, two weeks after the May 6 death of Alberto Anthony Marino. Marino had been struck in a roadway earlier by a vehicle, and was struck again when laying in the roadway by the driver of a Nissan Xterra, fatally. The drivers of both vehicles fled the scene after striking the Virginia man.
Authorities are describing Walner Alberto Pichinte Echeverria, 35, of 6502 Monarch Road in Frederick, Md, as the driver of the Xterra. A source informed Potomac Local News that Echeverria had entered the country illegally at some point on Wednesday.
Law enforcement were able to identify Echeverria as the driver of the Xterra using surveillance footage obtained from a nearby gas station.
Local police are still looking for the driver of the first vehicle to strike Marino, which they say was a Toyota Corolla.
Echeverria is being charged with felony hit and run for his involvement in the incident. In any event, it appears likely that Marino’s death could’ve been avoided if not for Echeverria’s alleged reckless carelessness and illegal presence in the United States. Should he be convicted of the felony hit and run charges, he’ll likely serve a sentence in federal prison before being subject to deportation proceedings.
