Five illegal aliens who are part of the MS-13 gang were charged in connection with the brutal murder of a Maryland woman who was beaten to death and buried in June and unearthed in September. Maryland authorities discovered the body of 21-year-old Jenni B, Rivera in a shallow grave on the outskirts of Annapolis, the Baltimore Sun reported. The victim was allegedly lured to her death and then beaten by Ervin Figueroa, Brenda Argueta, Ronald Mendez Sosa, Darvin Guerra-Zacarias, and Francisco Ramirez-Pena, all five members of the MS-13 gang who have immigration detainers on them. Each had varying degrees of participation with two carrying out the actual murder. The victim had been reported missing on June 28 as the case remained unsolved until an anonymous source led authorities to key evidence in the case. In response to the gang killing and other bodies discovered in the area, Tim Altomare, the police chief in Anne Arundel County, reached out to residents but disclosed little information in connection to the three victims he was referring to, nor to the gang activity. “If you’re in fear, if you think a gang wants to hurt you, I’m begging you to come and talk to us,” Altomare said. “Your lives matter to us, it’s our job to keep you safe, we take it seriously, and we will move heaven and earth to get you the help you need if you need help to stay safe.” The murders took place over the past three to five weeks in separate locations. Although the identity of the gang was not revealed, members of the community familiar with the investigation have identified the gang as MS-13. Anne Arundel County officials recently announced the creation of a gang task force, a combination of officers from the county and Annapolis, as well as FBI agents. Law enforcement officials nationwide are targeting MS-13 members, many of which are illegal aliens with violent criminal records. In October 2012, the U.S. Department of Treasury labeled the group a “transnational criminal organization,” the first such designation for a street gang. Many law enforcement agencies are developing plans to fight the spread of MS-13 violence–but these problems are compounded by sanctuary policies that allow criminal alien gangs to gain a foothold on U.S. soil.
An illegal alien accused of murdering a teenage girl in Greenville County, South Carolina, was shielded from deportation as he was a beneficiary of the Obama-created DACA amnesty program. Daniel De Jesus Rangel Sherrer, 19, was one of the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation and given a work permit under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) confirmed. Sherrer was charged in connection with the murder of 18-year-old Diana Martinez-Gonzalez after she was found shot to death in a wooded area in the town of Easley, South Carolina. During a press conference, Master Deputy Ryan Flood said the DACA recipient confessed to a deputy about his alleged murder of Martinez-Gonzalez, a high school student. Sherrer allegedly murdered the girl in the wooded area because she had spread false rumors about him, the illegal alien told deputies. Police say the DACA recipient had also held another teenage girl against her will, but that she escaped the scene. Sherrer is now facing first-degree murder charges and should he be released from prison at any time, he will be deported. Under DACA, created by Obama in 2012, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens were prevented from being deported by receiving temporary amnesty in the U.S. President Trump’s administration, via Attorney General Jeff Sessions, announced that the program will officially end in March 2018, though the Republican establishment and Democrats are pushing to give permanent amnesty to the recipients.
Let’s hope that effort fails. This DACA program needs to end, and the illegals need to be deported. Period!!
The head of the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Friday that his agency had “no choice” but to arrest illegal immigrants in California’s neighborhoods and worksites despite newly signed sanctuary city legislation in the state. Those arrested would also likely be placed in out-of-state detention centers, ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan said in a statement. Homan’s comments came a day after California Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, signed state Senate bill SB54, or sanctuary state legislation. The new state law, which takes effect Jan. 1, will ban police from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities. Jail officials would be allowed to transfer inmates to federal immigration authorities only if they have been convicted of certain crimes. Homan cautioned the bill helped protect illegal immigrants from deportation and made the state a “magnet.” “Ultimately, SB54 helps shield removable aliens from immigration enforcement and creates another magnet for more illegal immigration, all at the expense of the safety and security of the very people it purports to protect,” Homan warned. However, Brown noted the law does not bar ICE from operating in the state. His office declined to comment further on the ICE statement Friday. “They are free to use their own considerable resources to enforce federal immigration law in California,” Brown wrote. Brown said the law does prevent the “commandeering of local officials” to do immigration work. “These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day,” Brown said.
Well, here’s a newsflash… If they’re living here illegally, they SHOULD be “living in fear every day!”
An illegal alien living in the sanctuary city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was sentenced for stealing Americans’ identities to collect more than $800,000 in tax refunds. Abdou Koudos Adissa, an illegal alien from the Republic of Benin, was sentenced to four years in federal prison for his part in a tax fraud scheme, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced. According to court records, Adissa was convicted of conspiring to commit access device fraud in March for his involvement in the tax scheme that ran from February to June 2014. During that time, Adissa was a part of a group that stole Americans’ identities to file tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service. Adissa’s co-conspirators filed the fraudulent tax returns, stealing more than $800,000 in refunds which was then deposited onto Green Dot pre-paid debit accounts. That money was eventually sent to Nigeria through Western Union. When federal officials raided Adissa’s apartment in Philadelphia, they found 106 of the Green Dot cards. The illegal alien registered all the debit cards using stolen American IDs before giving co-conspirators the cards’ direct deposit information so they would be able to direct the fraudulent tax refunds to the cards. Adissa called Western Union some 63 times to transfer the stolen $800,000 to Nigeria. Following Adissa’s release from federal prison, he will be handed over to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency for deportation.
Identity theft is a HUGE problem in our country. And, we find that Nigeria seems to be associated with a lot of these stories. Just glad this illegal alien piece of garbage was caught. He’ll do some time in prison, as well he should, before being deported.
Nearly 500 criminal illegal aliens were arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in a four-day operation in sanctuary city jurisdictions, which shield illegal aliens from deportation. Known as Operation Safe City, ICE agents detained a total of 498 illegal aliens living in sanctuary cities who violated U.S. immigration laws; have criminal convictions or pending criminal charges; are known gang members, immigration fugitives; and those who re-entered the U.S. after already being deported, according to ICE officials. Illegal aliens who are currently shielded from deportation by the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program were not targeted in the operation, though those individuals will become eligible for deportation as their temporary protected status expires over the next two years.

Kudos to the great men and women of ICE for getting out there and making our communities safer through this program. Let’s hope they expand Operation Safe City! Excellent!! 🙂
Agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested four men outside of a Brooklyn courthouse Thursday morning where they were scheduled to appear in court on misdemeanor charges, an ICE spokesperson confirmed to Fox News. The agents arrested the illegal immigrants who were set to appear in Brooklyn Criminal Court Thursday, three on charges of misdemeanor trespass, and one on a misdemeanor weapon possession. The four arrested — Eduardo Romero, Juan Villa, Fredy Rosa and Sergio Perez — are all Mexican nationals, and are associated with the Niños Malos gang, a primarily Mexican street gang that operates out of Sunset Park in Brooklyn, ICE spokesperson Rachael Yong Yow said. Niños Malos translated from Spanish means “bad kids.” The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office told Fox News it didn’t know ICE was going to arrest the illegal immigrants. “We were not notified, and we do not cooperate with ICE,” a spokesperson for the office said. ICE agents are legally authorized to arrest illegal immigrants at courthouses, but the practice has been widely scrutinized. New York State Attorney Eric Schneiderman, along with Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, alleged in August that ICE has been waiting near courthouses — a location not deemed as “sensitive” by ICE — in an effort to arrest illegal immigrants, and requested “that ICE refrain from arresting witnesses and victims.” Illegal imigrants in “sensitive” locations, such as schools or places of worship, aren’t subject to ICE arrests.
Kudos to these ICE agents for doing their job and helping to make Brooklyn safe, in spite of the resistance from the local Democrat politicians. These thugs are gang members; exactly the kind of criminal illegal aliens that we need to be deporting. Thanks to the ICE agents, these “bad kids” are off the streets. Excellent!!
A convicted rapist from Africa threw a fit as he was being deported from the U.S. — telling federal agents that he “would rather die than go back to Togo” — during a violent confrontation at Dulles International Airport, a report says. “I am not going back to Togo,” seethed Koffi Ameyapoh, 51, of Maryland. “You will be shipping a dead body back to Togo,” he told the agents, according to court filings obtained by NBC Washington on Monday. “I am going to make a commotion at the terminal, so the marshals can shoot me because I would rather die than go back to Togo.” Ameyapoh, who was convicted in 2006 of rape and sexually abusing a child, had been scheduled to take a flight to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia — en route to the African nation of Togo — as part of his removal from the country, NBC reports.
Glad to get this piece of garbage the hell out of our country! To read more of this story, click on the text above.
