A convicted murderer embedded with the migrant caravan from Honduras was arrested by Customs and Border Patrol last week.
Miguel Angel Ramirez, 46, was previously imprisoned in Honduras for murder and was released in the country earlier this year, a DHS spokesman said. He was released from prison earlier this year and ended up in the caravan seeking to enter the United States near the Tijuana port of entry. Ramirez was arrested for illegal entry into the United States. As a convicted murderer, he would have been unable to enter the United States through legal means and thus resorted to illegal means.
Tyler Houlton, a DHS spokesman, gave a statement in regards to the arrest. “As DHS confirmed weeks ago, there are at least 600 known criminals in the caravan flow. The fact that Border Patrol arrested a murderer within the first caravan-related apprehensions at our southern border proves how real the threat of the caravan is to our national security and public safety.”
A series of media and progressive figures had tried to depict concerns over the caravan as forms of fearmongering and naked hatred. Jim Acosta went on a lengthy rant during a White House Press Conference, expressing his extreme displeasure with language used by President Trump to describe the illegal immigrants.
Progressives and migration apologists alleged that the disorderly caravan was mostly made up of women and children. However, the series of riotous acts and attempts to illegally enter the U.S committed by its members begin to make it clear many people within the caravan are hardened and dangerous criminals.
Over 200 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Bust of Human Smuggling Operation in Laredo, Texas
More than 200 illegal aliens were transferred to the custody of Customs and Border Patrol last week, with the wave of arrests coming as authorities moved upon a human smuggling ring operating in the Laredo, Texas area.
Border Patrol agents most recently recounted finding 25 people hiding within a horse trailer at an immigration checkpoint on Thursday. They’ve encountered other smuggling attempts with the use of commercial tractor-trailers, box trucks, agriculture and fuel containers, and a travel trailer. CBP has reported making 242 arrests last week alone, a figure not seen since before the coronavirus pandemic.
At least two of the men arrested by CBP for attempting to unlawfully enter the country have outstanding arrest warrants for sex crimes in the United States, one of which is said to have targeted a minor. Both of these suspects are currently facing extradition proceedings for their alleged crimes.
The south Texas city appears to have become a hub for cartel-affiliated human smuggling, which has resumed in force following a lull during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. CBP and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on a human smuggling stash house in the city last month, in which 47 illegal aliens were being stashed.
The freeze on illegal immigration that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic appears to largely be over, with criminal smuggling groups now once again attempting to move large groups of unlawful aliens into the United States. It’s very likely that smuggling organizations will attempt to move their customers across the southern border in a greatly increased capacity if Joe Biden is inaugurated in January. The Democrat candidate has already confirmed he only intends to deport illegal aliens who are convicted of a violent felony, which would largely abandon the enforcement of American immigration law.
