More Illegal Alien Crime

By Greg L | 22 January 2009 | Illegal Aliens, Crime, Prince William County | 44 Comments

This time, an illegal alien (yes Chuck Colgan, they actually do exist) wrapped a three year old child in duct tape and beat her.  That’s quite a “contribution” to the “diversity” we need in our community, isn’t it?

Officers were called to the house in the 11200 block of Golden Leaf Drive on Tuesday night, where they found a girl who had been hit and bound in duct tape, Prince William County police spokeswoman Sharon Richardson said. The girl is not related to the suspect, police said.

An acquaintance of the man notified police of the alleged abuse.

Erik Guevara, 35, was charged with two counts of felony child abuse and two counts of domestic assault and battery, police said. Guevara, an illegal immigrant, is an acquaintance of the victim. It was not clear why the girl was at his home.

This crime was one hundred percent preventable, if only government at all levels fulfilled their responsibility to get and keep illegal aliens out of our country.  The lack of action on the part of state and federal governments to address this has once again created another victim to add to the long list of those who have suffered at the hands of an illegal alien in this country.  How many more young children will have to pay the price before Virginia requires businesses to screen employees for legal presence, or our federal government actually decides to protect our broken borders?

    In his first year on the BOCS, Supervisor Principi’s efforts to thwart the Rule of Law Resolution, in direct violation of his campaign promise, has led to a child being murdered and now another beat at the hands of illegal aliens. His mixed message has emboldened illegal aliens in our community. How many more children will have to suffer because of him?

    The people of congress need to understand “we the people” are not interested in waiting on immigration reform. Like campaign finance reform, social security reform, and every other reform promised, immigration “reform” is decades away.

    We need immediate action enforcing existing law. Unfortunately they continue to ignore the will of the people. Perhaps they will eventually find their motivation to act when “the American people start doing the job their elected officials won’t do”.

    Soon we will have a total amnesty for some 20 million or so illegals according to Senate bill 9 submitted by dumo Reid. If it passes (who is going to oppose it this time…..just look at how fast cabinet nominees including the crook Treasury nominee.) The dumbocrats are in charge and we won’t have any more illegal alien crime. The latinos will still be comitting the crimes but they will be legal.

    Continue to pressure local and state officials for results, not rhetoric.
    Work towards electing true independents to office, who will represent the interests of their constituents and not party apparachiks. Colgan esp. has to go. No amount of road building pork is worth the crime and disintegration of civil society.

    We have only a few more weeks here in Monterey County until we head east. Really looking forward to living in our own home in PWC.

    Monterey County is the canary in the coalmine with respect to capitulation to big business interests who want cheap and undocumented labor. Salinas is the “salad bowl” of the US and its engine is undocumented aliens.

    Salinas, a city of 150 K, topped many other more notorious big cities in the homicide rate for last year — 25, achieving a statistic of 17.9. Looks like they are well on their way to blowing through those numbers, as we are up to 7 murders in Jan 2009. Not exactly a roaring start to begin with. And the grocery store on the main drag in town, considered the “safe” or “good” part of town was just robbed by assailants toting an Uzi.

    And this doesn’t even take into account all the other crime in the surrounding towns — murders in King City, Watsonville and Greenfield seem to elicit yawns. I can’t recall a local newscast that doesn’t report a current murder or a follow-up to a recent one.
    And don’t forget the list of school officials and others in public trust convicted of child porn/abuse etc. And the Dad who tried to sell his 14 year old daughter, who made his court appearance today. Or the Marine who got jumped and knifed by a gang of six walking back to his barracks. I could go on and on but you get the drift.

    Illegals here can collect welfare and a multitude of social benefits without questions asked, or documents verified.

    The county and surrounding cities are experiencing massive budget shortfalls, but cutting spending and generous benefits is not even a real consideration. Apparently, in the People’s Republic here, the solution to an eroding tax base is to….raise taxes.

    My greatest fear is that our silence and complacency will turn PWC in California-lite. Certainly, there are enough recent transplants from NY, NJ and CA who seem proud of turning PWC blue. I fail to understand why they choose to leave a failing liberal state for a state that works, only to try and turn it into…a failing liberal state.

    Stay vigilant, stay firm, stay the course.
    We’ll be joining you soon.

    There have been problems at that apartment complex for years. Gangs, overcrowding, loud noise, and tormenting the neighbors. When residents asked the police for help, not much was forthcoming.

    I hope this scumbag rots in h@#*! And for the illegal alien apologists…. I bet the police did not ask the immigration of the victims. As it should be.

    I have to wonder, where is the outrage over at the “bored, undersexed, stay-at-home housewives” page, whenever an illegal is involved in a serious, violent crime? Really. They get all this wonderful, glowing praise in the press, about how “active” they are, or how “effective” their voices are. Have they brought forth even ONE solution? Have they prevented even ONE violent crime? Have they protected ONE child from abuse, ONE woman from rape, ONE citizen from hit and run? Hell, have they even cleaned ONE piece of gang graffiti? NO! They have done NOTHING, except piss and moan, throw stones at REAL concerned, active citizens…and throw PARTIES to protest the actions of good citizens and elected officials.

    Complains. Criticizes. Loves to throw parties for low-lifes.Won’t work. Won’t clean a damn thing. Yep, every one of them is my ex-wife.

    First, welcome home. Second, in order to understand “why” you must first know the nature of a parasite. The parasite will take from the host, even to the point where the host dies. Then, those parasites which posess mobility, move on to feed on another host. I agree, it would appear that the parasite is acting against what Ayn Rand called, “ones own rational self-interest”. The problem here is a true parasite cannot, by its very nature, be rational, no more than it can deny its nature to feed, to take, to weaken and destroy.

    So how do we find out how many other times this child beater has been in contact with the local LEOs? Is there a website with a database I can search? How many times was he stopped for driving without a license? I’m sure he was one of the 10,000 stops done in 2007 for that crime.

    I say you get stopped without a drivers license, you lose your vehicle for 30 days. After 30 days you can pick it up if you show a valid license. If not, then it’s the auction block for your vehicle and the proceeds go to fund the “rule of law”.

    Was Caroline Kennedy’s Senate bid derailed by an illegal alien emploeye? Household worker + problems involving taxes = hired illegal alien

    Alert! President Obama announces support for amnesty!

    President Obama has reiterated his support for an amnesty for illegal aliens. His White House website announces his intention to “bring people out of the shadows” and “support a system that allows undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens.”

    Of course, we know that granting this amnesty means that those who have broken our laws will move to the front of the line, bypassing those who did not cheat.

    CLICK HERE to tell President Obama you are opposed to amnesty!

    I wouldnt call obama’s agenda outright amnesty, it’s got a ton of holes in it that would prohibit the masses from qualifying: first you gotta be an illegal that has not got into any trouble, second you gotta pay a fine and third you go to the end of the line. That’s after being thoroughly documented and registered. Most illegals would likely shy away from that, they hate being found out. It’s essentially the same thing mcCain proposed as well. the only thing I dont know is what happens after you go to the “end of the line” do you get to stay or do you have to go? I dont like it, but it’s better than holding the gate open for them I suppose.

    betcha’ the hippo’s on the anti site have their panties all riled about this one. heck, maybe they’ll even have an “amnesty” party to go along with their economy party.

    Two recent studies on illegal alien crime are of special note. The first released October 1, 2008, by the Center for Immigration Studies deals with gang activity: “Taking Back the Streets: ICE and Local Law Enforcement Target Immigrant Gangs” is the Center for Immigration Studies report that offers these highlights:

    # Transnational immigrant gangs have been spreading rapidly and sprouting in suburban and rural areas where communities are not always equipped to deal with them.

    # A very large share of immigrant gang members are illegal aliens and removable aliens. Federal sources estimate that 60 to 90 percent of the members of MS-13, the most notorious immigrant gang, are illegal aliens. In one jurisdiction studied, Northern Virginia, 30 to 40 percent of the gang task force case load were removable aliens.

    # MS-13 activity was found in 48 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

    # The immigrant gangsters arrested were a significant menace to the public. About 80 percent had committed serious crimes in addition to their immigration violations and 40 percent were violent criminals.

    # While immigration law enforcement is a federal responsibility, ICE cannot do the job effectively without assistance from state and local law enforcement, particularly when it comes to immigrant gangs.

    # Failure to adequately control the U.S.-Mexico border and to deter illegal settlement in general undermines the progress ICE and local law enforcement agencies have made in disrupting criminal immigrant street gangs.

    The second, released October 3, 2008 by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office in Phoenix, Arizona, details the percentage of crimes committed by border violators in the third largest county in the US. Maricopa County, Arizona is the best area in the country for reliable illegal alien crime statistics. The county sheriff, Joe Arpaio, has aggressively decided to combat illegal alien crime in his county. He has partnered with federal ICE through the 287 (g) program which trains local law enforcement personnel in determining, dealing with and deporting illegal aliens. He has a well staffed Triple I Unit (Illegal Immigrant Interdiction Unit).

    The MCAO report from County Attorney Andrew Thomas features these startling numbers for prosecuted felony cases in Maricopa County, Arizona:

    In 2007, illegal immigrants accounted for:

    10% of sex crimes convictions
    11% of murders convictions
    13% of stolen cars convictions
    13% of aggravated assaults convictions
    17% of those sentenced for violent crimes
    19% of those sentenced for property crimes
    20% of those sentenced for felony DUI.
    21% of crimes committed with weapons
    34% of those sentenced for the manufacture, sale or transport of drugs
    36% of those sentenced for kidnapping
    44% of forgeries
    50% of those sentenced for crimes related to “chop shops”
    85% of false ID convictions
    96% of smuggling convictions

    Illegal immigrants make up 19 percent of those convicted of crimes in Maricopa County and 21 percent of those in county jails.

    Illegal immigrants only make up an estimated 9 percent of the county’s population.

    It is estimated that each violent crime cost citizens $20,000, and each property crime cost citizens $4363 per offense.

    All the more a concern is research that finds the likelihood of an illegal immigrant being incarcerated grows with longer residence in the United States and that the U.S. born children (considered citizens) of illegal immigrants are dramatically more likely to be involved in crime than their illegal immigrant parents. For instance, native born Hispanic male high school dropouts are eleven times more likely to be incarcerated than their foreign born counterparts.

    Cheetah has a good point. Some of the illegals just might view amnesty as a bit of two-edged sword. After all, you presumably would have to reveal your true identity and the actual location in which you live, along with other private details about your life, not excluding, perhaps, a clear set of fingerprints. Might make it a little bit harder to disappear into the woodwork when you persist in breaking every county law and ordinance on the books just to suit your own convenience. Bad habits are hard to break, amnesty or no amnesty.

    Do you mean the one drafted by McCain and Kennedy?

    Fortunately, McCain is still alienating Republicans in Congress.

    There is still a probability (however remote) that an “amnesty” bill may be hung up in Congress, or so watered down it will dash hope for illegals and convince them to leave as the economic downturn continues.

    Of course, a nationally mandated E-Verify would go a long way to “encourage” a hasty exodus and make available thousands of jobs (construction and factory) for Americans - as promised by this Administration.

    Without E-Verify, any amnesty will only guarantee illegal aliens will be offered these jobs as “legally employable,” continuing the cycle of rewarding businesses that have “lived on the edge” and profited greatly because of it.

    U.S. Border Control
    Can’t afford to visit Beirut? Try Mexico - it’s almost as dangerous

    Posted: 24 Jan 2009 09:32 PM CST

    The big lie continues that Mexico is a civilized nation that we should embrace with open arms and open borders. The truth is that Mexico is one of the most corrupt nations in our hemisphere and, right now, is very close to a state of total anarchy.

    The drug cartels (see map at right), who, for years have controlled many of Mexico’s politicians and more than a few American politicians are now in open warfare with the government for total control of the country.

    Most recently, a Mexico police chief’s head, stuffed into an ice box, was delivered to his colleagues in the country’s latest drug-related violence. The incident came as 16 other people were also killed in Mexico’s northern state of Chihuahua in attacks the authorities believe are linked to the country’s drug wars.

    “Hitmen cut off commander Martin Castro’s head and left it in an ice cooler in front of the local police station,” said a statement issued by the state justice authorities. Along with the head was a warning from the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel.

    The police commander, only five days after starting his job, was abducted along with five other police officers and a civilian, . Six bodies in police uniforms bearing signs of torture and gunshot wounds were found in a street in the state capital, Chihuahua.

    Along the northern areas bordering the US, more than 5,300 people were killed last year. Nevertheless, the U.S. State Department has, thus far, refused to issue a warning asking Americans to avoid this very dangerous and often deadly part of the world.

    We are now seeing that the Illegal Aliens can not only impact this Nation but the global economy as well. The majority of the Sub-Prime loans & initial defaults were to Illegal Aliens that started the unraveling of the Global Economy! Just like our Declining standard of living, Bankrupt Hospitals, Failing Schools, Welfare costs, Identity fraud, Welfare fraud, Voter fraud, Gangs, Crime, Crowded prisons, Destroyed communities, Exploding population, Congested roads, Pollution, Insurance costs, Balance of payments, (Imported oil etc. to support the illegal alien population) Trashed Constitution and the Rule of Law, they have now spread their negative impact & misery across the Globe.

    Are the infrastructure and construction bailout jobs program more of the same old scam?

    We really need the infrastructure and construction jobs without E-verify so we can put the millions of Illegal Aliens back to work, so they can send money home to support Mexico! The contractors can charge the tax payers union scale, hire Illegals at slave wages, pocket the different s, and the tax payers pay both the wages and the billions in cost to educate the illegals many spawn, provide medical, welfare and prison cells.

    If so, then it is the same old scam, reward the Rich and the invading horde of illegals Aliens and soak the tax payers that have obeyed the laws, paid the taxes and fought the wars and built this Nation!

    You would think the Politicians would be content with just outsourcing all the jobs that are possible but No they want to bring in Slave labor ( while ignoring Article IV Section IV of our Constitution against invasion, the rule of Law, and their Oath of office) to take the jobs that cannot be outsourced! To add insult to injury they make the American citizens still working pay billions in extra taxes to educate, provide medical, welfare and jail cells for the invading horde that are taking our jobs and driving down our standard of living! While keeping busy Robbing, Raping and Killing American citizens at an rate that Bin Laden can only dream about!

    The Democrats love the millions of Welfare votes. Many of the Republicans love the slave labor for their Pay Masters in the Chamber of Commerce and business. So there is little or no hope for American citizens and the future viability of this nation as we know it.

    If we are realistic and look at the havoc caused by the millions invading Hispanics on our communities, culture, crime, economy, welfare, taxes, environment, schooling and standard of living the only conclusion possible is that no Nation can withstand or assimilate Millions of citizens from another culture, that come here for the jobs and welfare, while keeping loyally to their home countries!

    This Nation is changing to the very same type of culture and society the invading millions have created, built and sustained for 100,s of years and are now fleeing in their own Countries!

    One has to only look at Calif. which is basically an Bankrupt state that cannot afford to provide Welfare, Schooling, Medical, Prison cells etc. for millions of MS-13 Gang bangers, Drug dealers, Rapist and other assorted Criminals and third world rejects from Mexico! In a very few years it will be impossible to see where Mexico ends and Calif. begins as both will be an third world cesspool!

    The future is an over populated, Spanish speaking third world Nation that is an Cesspool of Corruption, Crime, Poverty and Misery modeled on Mexico!

    In North Carolina an illegal with no drivers license caused a 5 vehicle wreck that has a trash truck driver in the hospital in critical condition with burns. Another question: What has this guy been doing for money in this country for the past 2 years?:


    Raleigh, N.C. — The driver of an SUV who investigators believe triggered Monday night’s fiery, five-vehicle wreck on Interstate 40 will face criminal charges after he is released from the hospital, Trooper Beckley Vaughan of the Highway Patrol said.

    Troopers investigating the wreck say Osmar Guillermo Perez Vicente, 28, caused it when he cut across multiple lanes to try to exit onto Wade Avenue.

    Vicente was listed in serious condition at WakeMed Tuesday evening. Vaughan said that after Vicente is released from the hospital, he will face charges of careless and reckless driving and operating without a license.

    Vaughan said troopers also intend to investigate whether Vicente is in the United States legally. Vicente does not speak English and told investigators, via a translator, that he has been in the U.S. looking for work for two years.

    The wreck closed down I-40 in both directions Monday evening.

    Witnesses said Vicente, driving an Isuzu SUV, swerved across lanes, clipping a tractor-trailer, which lost control and rolled into the treeline.

    The Isuzu then came back into eastbound lanes and hit a minivan, tossing it into a garbage truck.

    The driver of the garbage truck lost control of his vehicle, which crossed the center median and hit a Dodge Charger in the westbound lanes, troopers said. The garbage truck ran off the road and overturned, spilling refuse along the shoulder.

    The truck caught fire and set the driver’s clothes ablaze, and flames spread to the debris on the highway and into the adjoining woods.

    The driver of the garbage truck, Robert Jay Leffer, 48, from Sanford, was taken to the Jaycees Burn Center at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. He was listed in critical condition Wednesday morning with extensive burns.

    The other people involved in the wreck had minor injures and were not hospitalized.

    And if Robert Jay Leffer lives he will more than likely lose everything including his job, home etc because of this uninsured illegal and owe hundreds of thousands in medical expenses, assuming the company does not pick up the tab for at least that. Another life ruined by an illegal alien.

    You are welcome, Dave in PWC.

    Check on any one of the twenty DEA Divisions across our nation. The majority of fugatives are hispanic - yet the majority of those individuals are classified as white. The irony here is that “white” classification is the ultimate punishment - banished from any and all minority set-asides. A warning to all future criminals: Do the crime and risk losing your non-white privileges! And you don’t have to be hispanic to be branded as white!

    I mean, c’mon, what the hey:

    Another illegal alien nut:


    Wilmington, N.C. — The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office says that a man twice held a store clerk up at gunpoint Friday evening in hopes of getting deported to Mexico.

    A clerk at the Scotchman #181 store called authorities around 5 p.m., saying that a man had tried to rob the store at 5302 Carolina Beach Road a half-hour earlier, Deputy Charles G. Smith said in a release. The man displayed a gun but left the store on foot without taking money or harming the clerk.

    Deputies searched the area but did not find anyone matching the suspect description.

    About three hours later, deputies rushed to the store again after getting a hold-up alarm, Smith said. When they arrived, a man was pointing a gun at the clerk.

    While deputies and Wilmington police officers positioned themselves around the store, the gunman left the store, still holding the clerk at gunpoint. Smith said that deputies were able to disarm and apprehend the man without incident.

    Investigators said they learned that the man refused to take any money from the clerk and wanted to get deported to Mexico.

    Deputies identified the alleged gunman as Jose Luis Medina-Ruiz, 37, of Wilmington. They charged him with attempted robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and two counts each of second-degree kidnapping and hoax by false bomb or other device.

    Medina-Ruiz remained in the New Hanover County Detention Center under a $135,000 secured bond Saturday afternoon.
