The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol says it’s turned over a previously-deported illegal alien, wanted for raping and killing a 14-year-old and murdering her father in June, to Guatemalan authorities.
Juan Figueroa-Martinez, 27, so brutalized his victim she “subsequently died as a direct result of this crime,” according to the news release. When the victim’s father confronted her alleged murderer, Martinez shot him with a rifle, killing him.
Martinez then fled to the U.S., where he roamed about until Border Patrol agents arrested him near Falfurrias, Texas in August. A violent rapist who broke into the country was at large for a month — and no media outlet has bothered to write up this case except for a sole local news outlet. Martinez had previously been deported after authorities arrested him in New Jersey in March 2013.
It’s unclear why Martinez chose to flee to the U.S. after his alleged rape-murder spree, rather than a neighboring country, like Mexico. One clue might be Mexico’s tough immigration laws:
Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.
That’s fantastic! We had already deported the criminal, but, he came back!
Murdering rapists are free to come and go in the US.
But, then, Europe can show us what we have to look forward to ……. well, wait, they don’t have to, they’re already here.
McALLEN, Texas – A Syrian woman seeking asylum has been accused of using a fake passport to enter the U.S. through the Texas border. Her American citizen brother-in-law has also been charged in connection with the failed smuggling attempt.
Officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection arrested 27-year-old Walaa Alrehawi and her brother-in-law 46-year-old Mohammad Ziad Alzalam last week in the border city of Hidalgo. …….
How long will it be before they realize they can come and go undetected as the criminals like the one above did?
….. Breitbart Texas’ Managing Director Brandon Darby recently reported on Mexico opening the door to Syrian refugees. This brings about the real concern of individuals tied to ISIS being able to exploit Mexico’s limited enforcement of immigration laws in order to use that country as a springboard into the U.S.
