Illegal Alien Accused of Sexually Abusing 13-Year-Old Girl in Maryland

An illegal alien, known locally for driving a church van, has been accused of sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl and being in possession of child pornography in the state of Maryland. Jose Argueta, a 44-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, was arrested by the Annapolis Police Department after he allegedly sexually abused a 13-year-old girl on four separate occasions and allegedly took sexually explicit photos of the child. According to Annapolis Sgt. Amy Miguez, the illegal alien drove a church van that transported the victim and her family to their Glen Burnie, Maryland, church. “That’s how [the victim] first met him,” Miguez told local media. “It was obvious that there was a lot of information confirming that this had happened and also photographs, unfortunately, pornographic images of this child,” Miguez said. Argueta has been charged with 19 counts of sexual abuse of a child and child pornography. A judge has denied Argueta bail and he is currently being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials have asked that Argueta be turned over to them for arrest and deportation should he be released at any time from police custody.

 

Opinion/Analysis: Biden believes America’s chief mission is to admit as many poor people as possible

Here in Washington, our leaders spent the week focused on the Middle East, on Iran. But out there and the rest of the country, there are plenty of more pressing concerns — tangible concerns. For example, many of our cities are starting to fail. Infrastructure is aging; both crime and the cost of living are surging, and left-wing prosecutors have stopped enforcing the law. But for the leading Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden of Delaware, none of these problems matches what he believes is the greatest crisis of all — America isn’t importing enough desperately poor people. That’s his position. In a tweet on January 5, Biden lashed out at President Trump for his immigration policies: “Our Statue of Liberty invites in the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Donald Trump has slammed the door in the face of families fleeing persecution and violence.” What a moralizer that Joe Biden is. Just a few months ago, Biden vowed that when he becomes president he’ll admit two million poor immigrants overnight, and then increase that number from there. Joe Biden, “We could afford to take in a heartbeat another two million people. The idea that a country of 330 million people cannot absorb people who are in desperate need and who are justifiably fleeing oppression is absolutely bizarre. Absolutely bizarre. I would also move to increase the total number of immigrants able to come to the United States.” How many of those immigrants will be staying at Joe Biden’s house? At Joe Biden’s expense? Zero. Of course, Biden’s view is that our chief mission as a nation is to admit as many poor people as we can possibly can. The less impressive their country of origin, the less they’re able to contribute to this country, the more we want them. You are rich, they are poor, therefore you must give them money, the right to vote, a permanent home. And once you’ve done that, then repeat it. Biden claims that’s our moral duty, and that Donald Trump and anyone else who shirks that duty is a racist. But is Trump shirking that duty? Is the basic claim even true? It’s worth assessing. There is so much lying. So once again, we go to the numbers, and here’s what they are. From October 2018 to September 2019, the Border Patrol apprehended 977,000 people at the U.S.-Mexico border. That’s the highest total in more than a decade and more than the previous two years combined. Now keep in mind that’s just the people being caught at the southern border. Many more are getting through without being caught, of course, and then there are the tens or hundreds of thousands of others who enter legally but then overstay their visas. These illegal immigrants are tethering themselves here with millions of anchor babies. It’s not a talking point. It’s a fact. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, for example, 372,000 children of illegal aliens were born in this country just last year. Every one of them is now an American citizen, and their parents are benefiting from a whole suite of benefits — food stamps, Medicaid, other programs. And, of course, they won’t be deported now. Wonder how we got 22 million illegal immigrants? That’s how. So by any actual measure, by the data, illegal immigration is worse than it has been in a long time. But for Joe Biden, it’s still not enough. 22 million illegals? Why not 30 million or 50 million? And every one of them gets free health care paid for by you. That’s his promise. Is your country really so spectacularly rich that we can afford this? And, of course, you know the answer. We’re not a rich country. We are more than $20 trillion in debt. Our middle class is dying, in part because immigrants are willing to work for less and have driven down wages. — This doesn’t make the immigrants bad. They’re coming from incredibly poor places with totally different standards of living. But it’s an economic fact that when you flood the labor pool with people willing to work for less, wages go down. And that’s been going on for decades. Not surprisingly, America’s most immigrant-heavy state, California, is also the most impoverished. Many people born in California can’t leave quickly enough. Just ask Idaho and Texas. But Joe Biden says we need more. According to Biden, our country is a sanctuary — must be a sanctuary — for those fleeing violence. But because Joe Biden knows nothing, he is not aware that some of America’s cities are deadlier than the places those people are fleeing from. For example, El Salvador. One-third of all living El Salvadorans live in this country now. But here are the numbers: El Salvador has 50 murders per 100,00 people. Last year, Baltimore — not a country, the city in Maryland — Baltimore had 51 per 100,00. In other words, it is more dangerous than El Salvador. Baltimore clearly hasn’t benefited — at all — from America’s policy of unlimited immigration. But you know, none of this matters because for people like Joe Biden and the rest of this country’s ruling class. Helping American citizens stopped being the point a long time ago. The point is getting reelected and feeling virtuous.

Yeah..  No kidding!  Thanks to veteran journalist Tucker Carlson for that outstanding op/ed.  It’s refreshing for someone like Tucker, who was at CNN, then MSNBC before landing at Fox News, actually call out the real numbers of illegal aliens in this country; over 22 MILLION.  We’ve been saying that here at The Daily Buzz for almost 6 years, while the Democrats and the dominantly liberal mainstream media have used the figure of 11 million; a figure they’ve used for over 20 years, and yet somehow that number hasn’t changed in that time, because it would undermine their false narrative, as it relates to the illegal immigration crisis in this country.  Thanks Tucker!!

Thousands of migrants sent back to Mexico under Trump policy have given up their asylum claims: DHS

Thousands of migrants returned to Mexico under the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy have given up their asylum claims, with many of them returning home, according to statistics included in a new assessment of the policy released this week by the Department of Homeland Security. The policy, known formally as the Migrant Protection Protocols, sends migrants seeking asylum at the southern border back to Mexico for the duration of immigration proceedings. It is a cornerstone of the administration’s efforts to end “catch and release,” by which migrants are released into the U.S. while their cases are heard. Hearings have been held in border towns such as Laredo, Texas, where temporary courtrooms have been set up by the border and migrants are put in front of a judge via video conference. So far, the administration has returned more than 55,000 migrants to Mexico. The assessment describes the policy as an “indispensable tool in addressing the ongoing crisis at the southern border and restoring integrity to the immigration system.” It says that it has completed almost 13,000 cases as of Oct. 21. The new assessment, significantly, cites estimates from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that approximately 20,000 migrants are currently being sheltered in Mexico near the U.S. border as they still seek entry to the U.S. The assessment says that number, though, suggests “a significant proportion of the 55,000+ MPP returnees have chosen to abandon their claims.” The report notes that the work of the International Organization of Migration, supported in part by the U.S. government, is helping migrants return home for free if they choose to do so. It says that as of October, almost 900 migrants have participated in that program. The statistics put some meat on the bones of what officials have been saying for months, specifically that many of those in MPP — particularly those who do not have a legitimate asylum claim — realize that they will not be released into the interior and then just return home. Those returning migrants may then dissuade others from making the journey, reducing one of the “pull factors” bringing people north illegally. “We’re now sending the message that, if you’re coming here as an economic migrant, you’re not going to be allowed into the United States,” Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan, who has called MPP a “game-changer,” told reporters this month. “That’s driving a lot of people to return.” The MPP policy has been one of the most effective parts of the administration’s crackdown on asylum seekers and illegal immigration, but also one of the most controversial. Critics claim that migrants are being sent into camps with squalid conditions, and are also at risk of violence from cartels. “Not only does this policy do nothing to protect either migrants or U.S. interests, but we have grave concerns about its legality, recent efforts to expand it, and the dangerous conditions it forces asylum seekers to endure while waiting for their cases to be heard,” said a letter from two dozen Senate Democrats sent in August to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan. But administration officials have said that it allows for cases to be processed expeditiously, with initial hearings normally within a few months. “MPP returnees with meritorious claims can be granted relief or protection within months, rather than remaining in limbo for years while awaiting immigration court proceedings in the United States,” the assessment says. In terms of the interests of American citizens, the administration has claimed it has been key in the sharp decline of migrant apprehensions at the border, which have fallen by more than 60 percent since the highs in May. MPP was initially set up in January, but was expanded over the summer amid a new agreement with the Mexican government established in June. The U.S. has been seeking to continue to expand the policy since then. This week, DHS announced that it had also begun processing migrants under MPP in Eagle Pass, Texas — bringing to six the total number of ports of entry where MPP is underway. “We are confident in the program’s integrity and ability to adjudicate asylum claims quickly and with all due process, McAleenan said in a statement. “We have already seen individuals granted asylum, and many more fraudulent or non-meritorious cases closed. MPP has been – and remains – an essential part of these efforts.”

Clearly the MPP is helping.  But, it’s not enough by any means.  As many of you already know, here at The Daily Buzz, we have been, for over five years, calling on first the Obama Administration, and now the Trump Administration, to BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico, where they should remain until that wall/fence is finally built above, and below ground (to prevent tunneling)…however long that takes.  Simultaneously, we need to be deporting illegal aliens already here by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly), paying particular attention to known gang members, convicted criminal aliens, and those already judged by an immigration judge to be deported…regardless of age or gender.  To do anything less is NOT in America’s national security or economic interests.  Period.  In addition to those two basics, we welcome policies like the MPP and legislative initiatives at the state and federal level, like Kate’s law, that help to address this illegal immigration crisis that is crushing our country’s infrastructure.

 

Mexico halts caravan of 2,000 migrants bound for US; critics call roundup a ‘human hunt’

A caravan of roughly 2,000 migrants bound for the United States early Saturday was halted by Mexican authorities only a few hours into their journey, according to officials. The caravan, which consisted of migrants from Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America, left before dawn from Tapachula, a town in southern Mexico near the Guatemalan border, Reuters reported. Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula early in the morning had been held up there for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities. About 24 miles into their journey, federal police and national guardsmen blocked their path. Most of the group was detained and put on a bus back to Tapachula, while about 150 migrants returned by foot, witnesses said. The abrupt halt of the caravan stood in stark contrast to last year when waves of U.S.-bound caravans – including one of at least 7,000 people – drew widespread media coverage while immigration officials on both sides of the border struggled to stem the flow. Under pressure from Washington, the government has been taking a tougher stance in dealing with migrants, and many Mexicans are being less welcoming. President Trump, who frequently described the caravans an “invasion,” brokered a deal with Mexico in June, promising to avert tariffs on imports if Mexico clamped down on U.S.-bound migration. Salva Lacruz, from the Fray Matías de Córdova Human Rights Center in Tapachula, called the roundup on Sunday a “human hunt” and noted officials waited until the migrants had tired out before forcing them into vans. Sending the migrants back south was an “exercise in cruelty,” Lacruz said, saying the migrants have come to Mexico because “they need international protection.” Mexico’s export-driven economy is highly dependent on commerce with the U.S., and the government has become far less hospitable to migrants. Mexico has offered refugees the possibility of obtaining work and residency permits to stay in southern Mexico, far from the U.S. border. But those asylum permits are slow-coming in an overstretched immigration system.

Seems as if Mexico is coming to the same realization that we have; that we simply cannot take every person that just wants to come here.  Imagine that..

Maryland MS-13 members, illegal immigrants plead guilty to 2 grisly murders

Four MS-13 members—in the U.S. illegally—have pleaded guilty in Maryland to participating in the murders of a 21-year-old woman and a 17-year-old teenager two years ago. Police said the woman, Jennifer Rivera-Lopez, was lured to her death in June 2017 in an Anne Arundel County park where her killers, armed with knives and machetes, chopped her head off and buried her in a secret grave, the Capital Gazette reported Monday. Ronald Mendez-Sosa, 21, Brenda Argueta, 20, Ervin Arrue-Figueroa, 20, and Francisco Ramirez-Pena, 24, all of Maryland, copped to the murder last week in federal court, the paper reported. Mendez-Sosa also pleaded guilty to participating in the murder of Neri Giovani Bonilla-Palacios, the 17-year-old, who turned up dead in the woods in Annapolis in October 2017. He had been murdered two months earlier, investigators said. Court papers said he had been decapitated with a machete and his body had “at least 108 sharp and blunt force injury wounds,” the paper reported. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged detainers against all four after cops arrested them in October 2017. Court papers alleged that MS-13 targeted Rivera-Lopez and Bonilla-Palacios due to their association with a rival gang, the Gazette added. According to the court papers, Argueta reached out to Rivera-Lopez on social media and arranged for the two to meet, the paper reported. The court papers alleged that after using a ruse to get Rivera-Lopez into the car, Argueta used another ruse to get the car to stop “at which point several other [MS-13] members forced [Rivera-Lopez] into another vehicle and took [Rivera-Lopez] to the site of the murder,” the paper reported. The court papers for Mendez-Sosa said he did not help kill Rivera-Lopez but aided in the murder by transporting others to and from the scene, the paper reported.

And just think…  Only a couple years ago, Democrat politicians and the dominantly liberal mainstream media (especially MSNBC and CNN) were attacking President Trump for calling these MS-13 maggots “animals.”  These are not “people” as those Dems claimed.  They are vermin, and a cancer in our communities that needs to be eradicated.  What adds insult to injury is the fact that they are illegal aliens, and shouldn’t have even been in America in the first place!  Please consider this today’s painful reminder that we need to BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico, where they should remain until that wall/fence is finally built above, and under ground (to prevent tunneling)…however long it takes.  At the same time, we need to be deporting illegal aliens by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly), paying particular attention to known gang members, convicted criminal aliens, and those already determined by an immigration court to be deported…regardless of age, gender, or family status.  And that’s just for starters, folks.  To do anything less is NOT in our country’s national security, or economic, interests.  Period.  We have over 20 MILLION illegal aliens in this country (NOT 11 Million; the same figure liberals have been using for over 2 decades..as if that number hasn’t gone up in the last 20 years), and our schools, hospitals, courts, and jails are overwhelmed by that staggering statistic.  Anyway..  If you want to see a photo of Jennifer, the poor young woman who was beheaded, or the MS-13 “animals” who plead guilty to it, click on the text above.  Awful..

19 MS-13 gang members indicted in ‘medieval-style’ California slayings were in country illegally, officials say

Nearly all of the members and associates of an MS-13 gang charged in the “medieval-style” slayings of seven people in California were in the country illegally, officials said. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles charged 22 people linked to a subset of the vicious gang that’s known as the Fulton clique, members of which are suspected in nearly 200 crimes in several states over 9 years, according to a federal indictment released Tuesday. “We have now taken off the streets nearly two dozen people associated with the most violent arm of MS-13 in Los Angeles,” U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna said. Of the 22 defendants, 19 had entered the country illegally in the past three or four years, according to Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Los Angeles. Federal prosecutors allege the suspects operated in the San Fernando Valley, an area that recently absorbed an influx of young immigrants from Central America. “Under the influence of these young gangsters, younger associates who wanted to become members of MS-13 were ‘required to kill an MS-13 rival or someone perceived to be adverse to MS-13 to be initiated into MS-13,’ according to the indictment,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Tuesday. “In Los Angeles, a clique added new members through an initiation ritual known as ‘jumping in,’ during which several existing MS-13 members beat up a prospective MS-13 member for 13 seconds while the shot caller counted aloud for 13 seconds,” the indictment read. “Beginning in 2017 in Los Angeles, MS-13 members who identified with ‘503’ had been required” to murder a rival or other enemy of the group. Authorities said “503” represents the sub-group of MS-13 and is the telephone country code for El Salvador. The brutality involved in some of the alleged killings was also disclosed in graphic detail by authorities. Four of the killings took place in Angeles National Forest. The slayings were carried out using machetes, bats and knives, according to the indictment. In one case a member of a rival gang who had been believed to have defaced MS-13 graffiti was targeted and had his heart cut out of his chest, authorities said. On March 6, 2017, the victim, identified as “J.S.,” was driven to Angeles National Forest, where six MS-13 gang members attacked him with a machete, killing him, the indictment claimed. “The victim was dismembered and his body parts were thrown into a canyon after one of the defendants allegedly cut the heart out of the victim’s body,” a news release from Hanna’s office said. “Taking violent offenders off the street should send a message to MS-13 members and their associates that medieval-style violence and senseless murder will not be tolerated in Los Angeles,” said Paul Delacourt, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office. Hanna released photos showing MS-13 members displaying a machete, gang signs and guns in various poses. Sixteen of the 22 people indicted are charged in connection with six slayings, which officials said were so “heinous, cruel or depraved” that the defendants are eligible for the death penalty. Prosecutors have not said whether they intend to seek capital punishment, however. All 22 of the alleged MS-13 members and associates are in custody. Eighteen had been apprehended during the last year on a range of federal and state charges, authorities said. Three were arrested in recent days in the Los Angeles area by a task force that included FBI agents, Los Angeles police officers and Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies. Another alleged MS-13 affiliate was arrested over the weekend in Oklahoma. Authorities also filed two more cases under seal against juvenile defendants in federal court. “The collaborative law enforcement effort solved several murder cases and dealt a severe blow to members of the gang who engaged in acts of brutality not seen in the region for over 20 years,” Hanna said.

So, to recap..  19 of these 22 animals were here illegally; illegal aliens.  Keep that in mind the next time you hear some bleeding heart Dem say how cruel it is for us to be securing the border and deporting criminal aliens.

Study: Deporting Illegal Aliens Saves Americans Billions in Tax Dollars

Deporting the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the United States saves American taxpayers hundreds of billions in public costs, analysis finds. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to conduct a mass deportation effort next week, where at least 2,000 illegal aliens who have final orders for removal will be arrested, detained, and deported from the U.S. American taxpayers stand ready to benefit significantly from the deportation of thousands of illegal aliens, all of whom have been ordered deported and have refused to leave. The latest analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies Director of Research Steven Camarotta compared and contrasted the cost to American taxpayers of millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S. over a lifetime and the cost of deportation. Based on research from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, the cost of illegal aliens to American taxpayers over a lifetime is about $746.3 billion. Compare this to the cost of a single deportation, which is about $10,854 per illegal alien based on Fiscal Year 2016 totals. Overall, deporting every illegal alien in the country would amount to a cost savings of about $622 billion over the course of a lifetime. This indicates that deporting illegal aliens is six times less costly than what it costs American taxpayers to currently subsidize the millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S. “There’s a high cost of cheap labor,” Camarotta told Breitbart News. Last year, President Trump’s administration deported more than 256,000 illegal aliens from the U.S. Assuming that the cost of deportations has been largely unchanged since the Obama administration, this would mean that last year’s deportations, alone, cost about $2.8 billion. Compared to the annual $116 billion that the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates illegal immigration costs taxpayers, deportations conducted last year were more than 40 times less costly. The latest Harvard/Harris Poll finds that a majority of Americans support Trump’s plan to mass deport illegal aliens following inaction from Congress. This includes support from more than 8-in-10 Republican voters and more than 5-in-10 swing voters. As Breitbart News has chronicled, there are about 1.7 million illegal aliens from Central America and Mexico, alone, living in the U.S. despite already being ordered deported or having pending deportation orders. The latest federal data concludes there are more than 925,000 illegal aliens, in total, with final deportation orders who have continued living freely in the U.S. About 20 percent of these illegal aliens have at least one criminal conviction and almost all are not in federal custody. Roughly 60 percent of these illegal aliens come from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

As we’ve been saying from day 1 here at The Daily Buzz..  We much closer to, if not more than, 22 MILLION illegal aliens here in America.  That’s an insane number!!  So, we need to be deporting these illegal aliens by the hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions.  The current roundup of the low-hanging fruit (those who are convicted criminal aliens with final deportation orders from an immigration judge) is the first step.  But, we need to keep that momentum going.  As this article clearly points out, and we’ve been saying for years, the cost of deportation is far less than allowing these illegals to remain.  Kudos to Steven Camarotta for putting this outstanding study together.  Facts matter…even if they’re uncomfortable and inconvenient for the open-boarders crowd of Democrat politicians, and their cheering section in the dominantly liberal mainstream media.
