BREAKING NEWS: A convicted murderer was arrested from within the migrant caravan making its way to the United States southern border. According to a report by the Daily Caller, U.S. authorities arrested the individual who is a Honduran national. The individual entered the U.S. illegally with the caravan.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said in a statement, “Border Patrol agents arrested a convicted murderer from Honduras Saturday night after he illegally entered the United States with other members of the migrant caravan.”
DHS released a lengthy statement that read:
Agents discovered documents indicating one of the men, 46 year-old Miguel Angel Ramirez, was recently released from prison in Honduras. Ramirez later admitted he was arrested and convicted for murder in Honduras and was released just four months ago … The San Diego Sector Border Patrol’s Foreign Operations Branch corroborated the man’s admission with the Honduran Consulate in Los Angeles and discovered that Ramirez served 16 years in a Honduran prison for his crime.
Another foreign national apprehended with the murderer, also a Honduran, had been previously deported from the U.S.
Thousands of migrants are attempting to rush the U.S. southern border in a caravan. Many are currently camping out in Tijuana while they wait to enter the United States.
Most of the migrants are trying to get asylum protections. They are claiming they have “credible fear”; this is clearly a loophole in the system, because stating credible fear allows you to remain in the U.S. for months (sometimes years) while you await a trail date to potentially obtain asylum protections and stay in the nation.
Many migrants never show up to court dates and disappear into the nation’s heartland while they await their trial.
The left is doing everything in its power to portray the caravan as being mostly women and children. However, photos show that the group is mostly made up of adult-aged men.
Asylum is a very special protection given to immigrants escaping government prosecution of sex, gender, or religion. Those looking for economic opportunity do not qualify for asylum. However, the caravan appears to be trying to take advantage of several loopholes in the U.S. legal system to be allowed to remain.
The recent events have ramped up calls by Donald Trump’s base to build a wall along the southern border. After all, this is only the first of many migrant caravans likely to come.
