An illegal alien was arrested on Dec. 19 after allegedly setting fire to an airplane hangar at an Arizona Air Force Base.
“An illegal immigrant was caught by security forces after reportedly starting a fire on top of the roof of a hangar at Luke Air Force Base,” according to ABC15. “Glendale police report that around 8:30 p.m. on December 12, they were contacted by security at the base after they had detained a man near a hangar.”
The suspect is 33-year-old Francisco Manzano, and he reportedly confessed to the police that he was using cocaine and methamphetamine. He claimed that he was being chased by a group of men, but police found no one else near the crime scene.
Manzano allegedly used deodorant spray and his shoes to start the fire. He was charged with criminal trespassing on a military base.
The bizarre crime occurred at a time when the battle over border security has taken center stage nationwide, with President Donald J. Trump demanding a wall be built at the southern border to stop the influx of illegal immigrants.
Democrats would not vote to give Trump $5 billion to fund the wall in the latest Continuing Resolution last week, causing a partial government shutdown. Wednesday, Trump remained adamant about keeping the government closed until the wall was fully funded.

Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election
They think they’ll be granted amnesty.
Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.
CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.
Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.
Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.
Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.
Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.
Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
