READ: How This Previously-Arrested Illegal Alien Became The State Department Phone Thief
The Washington Post and law enforcement in Arlington, Virginia have identified the State Department phone thief as Joel Enriquez-Bueno, a man with “no known fixed address” who gave a false identity to police. Bueno is charged with breaking into two State Department offices, in both Washington, D.C. and Arlington, on the same day and making off with phones and other “electronic equipment.”
Why was Mr. Bueno in the country?
Civilian data reveals that Joel Enriquez-Bueno is an illegal alien who used fake Social Security and welfare cards, and has a history of arrests and deportation.
The Western District of Texas El Paso Division has the 2016 District Court complaint for United States of America v. Enriquez-Bueno, Joel. He was charged under 8 USC 1326:
“Being an alien to the United States, enter, attempt to enter, and was found in the United States after having been previously excluded, deported, and removed from the United States without receiving permission to reapply for admission to the United States from the Attorney General of the United States and the Secretary of Homeland Security, the successor pursuant to Title 6, United States Code, Sections 202(3), 202(4), and 557.”
Investigator Steve Salvi, founder of Ohio Jobs & Justice PAC, obtained court records showing prior arrests for the suspect, but a judge only granted him some of the documents on the illegal alien.
“According to court records, he is an illegal alien with no known address, no money, but able to get multiple past arrest charges for assault from 2013 dismissed in New Jersey. In 2016 he was caught in possession with an illegally issued New York State Benefit card and U.S. Social Security card. Any individual, prosecutor, or city found violating the law by providing him sanctuary, should be prosecuted,” Salvi said in a statement provided to Big League Politics.
“Any breach of security is bad. If State Department security was breached by a foreign national, it doesn’t get worse. This breach could have resulted in espionage, a shooting, or bombing in addition to theft of devices that may contain sensitive if not classified information.”
“This should be a wake up call not only for State but those who also oppose border infrastructure, call to abolish ICE, and create sanctuaries for criminal illegal aliens like Joel Enriquez-Bueno. ”
“It’s time our public officials stop ignoring the lessons of 9-11 and take homeland security and immigration law enforcement seriously,” Salvi stated.
