A Venezuelan man in the United States on an expired visa has been arrested for allegedly murdering his ex-girlfriend and dumping her body on the side of the road in a neighboring state.
“Javier da Silva was nabbed by detectives from both New York and Connecticut after he used an ATM card belonging to the victim, Valerie Reyes, to withdraw cash from her account, according to the Greenwich, Conn., Police Department,” The New York Post said.
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is reportedly “looking into” da Silva’s immigration status. While being questioned, he reportedly “admitted a role in the death of Valerie Reyes” according to authorities.
Reyes, who was 24, was found dead on the morning of Feb.5, stuffed in a suitcase and dropped on the side of the road.
“Da Silva is expected to appear in White Plains federal court Tuesday afternoon because Reyes’ death and the dumping of her body crossed state lines,” the report said.
It is unclear what the exact charges will be.
Many Democrats have argued that building a border wall is impractical because about half of the illegal aliens residing in the United States are here on overstayed visas. The latter problem, of course, could be addressed with stricter laws and enforcement of visas.
Democrats do not want that, though. Instead, they believe that every person who steps foot inside the United States has an absolute right to live here for life.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
