Non-Citizen Who Overstayed his Visa Gets Child Porn Charges

County Examiner reported on an investigation that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE)’s Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) and Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force conducted, which ultimately led to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Houston acquiring a guilty plea from a Mexican man who received and possessed child pornography.

This raises questions about Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia and her desire to abolish ICE.

Houston Talk Radio host Ken Webster posted a video on June 24, 2019 of the congresswoman marching down Houston’s PRIDE parade holding a banner that read “Abolish ICE”. Webster noted that “ICE is an organization that stops human trafficking and captures people guilty of heinous crimes, including child pornographers, rapists and murderers, but Sylvia would apparently prefer those people walk free, as she’s openly advocating to abolish the institution that arrests a countless number of criminals every year.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Houston also sent out a similar press release announcing the guilty plea and sentencing of the illegal alien on child porn charges.

 

 “A 54-year-old Mexican man who illegally remained in the United States after his temporary visa had expired was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Tuesday for receiving and possessing child pornography.  

This investigation was conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. 

Alberto Bernal Garcia, who illegally resided in Houston, Texas, pleaded guilty to the criminal charges April 16. He was sentenced to 10 years each for the receipt and possession convictions, respectively. These sentences will run concurrently.  

Garcia legally entered the United States from Mexico on a temporary visa in 1997. However, he overstayed that visa.  Following his release from federal prison, he is expected to face removal proceedings.”

Congresswoman Garcia’s seat in the 29th Congressional District is quite safe, but her radical views on open borders can be exploited by Texas GOP activists who want to turn immigration into the number #1 political issue in the Lone Star state. After all, GOP voters have immigration as their top priority heading into the 2020 elections.

Garcia’s views on immigration demonstrate the ongoing radicalization of the modern-day Democratic Party.
