When initial reports of the murder of Omar Florencio-Vazquez came out, the three suspects in the case bore all the hallmarks of yet another case of illegal aliens murdering a resident. The victim was Latino, the behavior of the suspects was consistent with the behavior of ethnic-based gangs such as MS-13, and the murder happened in an area well known to be frequented by illegal aliens. Sure enough, weeks after law enforcement authorities would have determined the immigration status of the suspects in the case, the Manassas Journal-Messenger is reporting that Sebastian Cortes-Hernandez, Jose Antonio Ontiveros, and Santos Ontiveros are being held on Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers. That’s about as close as we get to an admission by the liberal local media that the defendants in this case are illegal aliens, but at least we’re getting this much.
In 2007, five of the nine murder victims in Prince William County died at the hands of an illegal alien. Manassas City resident C.J. Angelos was murdered by illegal alien MS-13 members in November, 2006 as well. If government, at any level would just do its job to get and keep illegal aliens out of this country, these victims would be alive, making this and all the other crimes where illegal aliens murdered residents in our community 100% preventable.
Instead we end up with a consistent pattern of illegal aliens committing serious crimes in numbers far out of proportion to their population in our community, albeit apparently fewer now than even a year ago. If only ICE would start picking some of the low hanging fruit at day laborer centers, Verizon FIOS subcontractors and moving companies in the county, we might just manage to remove illegal aliens before they manage to misinterpret “homo sapien” for “homosexual” and kill someone in a drunken rage, or some other senselessly tragic atrocity. Not all illegal aliens are latent murderers or MS-13 gang-bangers, but clearly there’s a significant minority who are. Having no idea who these illegal aliens are, nor the security risk they pose, ignoring their unlawful presence in our community is a recipe for tragedy that we should not be forced to accept.
