In New Jersey, a twice-deported illegal immigrant from Honduras has been accused of kidnapping and murdering a woman, the Washington Examiner reports.
According to the report, 33-year-old Jorge Rios has been charged with murdering 45-year-old Carolina Cano. Charges against Rios also include kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault.
Both lived in Jersey City, N.J., where the attack took place.
ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations office in Newark, N.J., said was removed from the U.S. in 2003 and 2004. Rios had been living in Jersey City, N.J.
Cano’s body was found in a lake in Lincoln Park, Jersey City, on Mar. 24. The Regional Medical Examiner’s Office cited strangulation and water submersion as the causes of death.
A week later, the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide Task Force arrested Rios.
ICE said it will take custody of Rios following his case, “despite limited cooperation in the state” due to sanctuary city policies that prohibit local law enforcement from holding criminals who are illegally in the U.S. for federal agents.
An illegal immigrant in Louisiana has been caught and arrested for 100 counts of possessing child pornography as well as the sexual battery of an individual under the age of 13.
According to the Washington Examiner, 44-year-old illegal immigrant Miguel Martinez was previously deported from the United States in 2005 before he illegally reentered.
“This arrest should serve as a wake-up call to Congress,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said in response to the arrest, via the Washington Examiner. “By not securing our borders and properly vetting those coming into our Nation, we have seen lives lost and destroyed.”
“Miguel Martinez, 44, was illegally living in Harvey, La., when he was arrested on child exploitation charges. In addition to the juvenile pornography charges, he also faces one count of production of pornography with a child under the age of 13, and one count of sexual battery of a juvenile under the age of 13,” the Washington Examiner adds.
And, here’s more:
It’s likely Martinez, a registered sex offender in California, will face additional charges from the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation Cyber Crime Unit and the Mississippi Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit, according to the Louisiana attorney general’s office.
Landry, who warned that “internet crimes against children continuously inflict damage,” also implored Congress to back President Trump’s efforts to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Illegal immigration has real-life consequences — countless numbers of needless crime victims, including too many Louisiana families and children,” said Landry. “For their sake — I again urge Congress to realize the national emergency we have at our Southern border, support President Trump, build the wall, and help us make our communities safer.”
