Convicted Murderer Caught in Migrant Caravan
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.
