Illegal Alien Wanted for Murder in Honduras Captured in Louisiana
Louisiana authorities said they have captured an illegal alien living in the United States who is wanted in Honduras in connection to a homicide.
In March, deputies from the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office stopped Wilson Gerardo Alvarado-Pacheco and Junior Nolasco for a routine traffic stop, according to KALB. Both are illegal aliens from Honduras.
Nolasco was arrested and charged with misdemeanor drug crimes, but Alvarado-Pacheco fled on foot, initially evading capture. But when police found out that he was wanted in connection to a homicide in Honduras, they called in U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assist in their manhunt.
Two months later, in early May, they received at tip that Alvarado-Pacheco was back in the Livingston Parish area. Border Patrol swooped in and arrested him.
“The arrest of Pacheco is noteworthy in several ways,” said Chief Border Patrol Officer Gregory Bovino.
“First, the arrest of this dangerous international fugitive highlights the dedication and motivated attitude of the team at the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office. We value our partnership with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office, and look forward to continuing to work with them to keep dangerous criminals off the street. Second, the arrest of Pacheco highlights the concern of many that an illegal alien wanted for murder in another country was living freely, undetected in our community until coming into contact with Livingston Parish Deputies and Border Patrol Agents.”
Alvarado-Pacheco’s arrest comes amid increasing pressure from Americans for President Donald J. Trump to keep his promise of securing the southern border. So far, both Democrats and Republicans have impeded his progress.

President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.
In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House
