Mexican Mass Murderer and Illegal Immigrant Deported to Mexico

Today, we have the story of an illegal immigrant from Mexico, who lived among us for years, wanted in Mexico for gunning down and killing three people.

Proponent of amnesty, by their actions, promote the migration of criminals into our midst. I think I can be highly confident in saying that he probably continued in his criminal ways while he was here.

SAN DIEGO – A Mexican national captured in Madera three months ago, who is charged with a mass murder in his native country, was turned over Tuesday to Mexican law enforcement personnel at a San Diego-area border crossing by officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

Miguel Cruz-Santoyo, 57, was transferred to the custody of representatives from the Mexican Attorney General’s Office. Cruz-Santoyo is wanted in Mexico on charges of murder, battery and dangerous attack. According to the Mexican arrest warrant, on March 17, 2000, Cruz-Santoyo allegedly walked into an auto body shop in Morelia, Mexico, and opened fire with a semi-automatic weapon, killing three individuals and wounding two others. Prior to his arrest, Mexican authorities considered Cruz-Santoyo one of the most wanted fugitives in the state of Michoacán.

Cruz-Santoyo’s repatriation to Mexico follows his capture Oct. 23, 2013, at a residence in Madera. He was taken into custody without incident by officers with ERO Fresno’s Fugitive Operations Team. The arrest occurred after ERO Fresno was alerted by the Mexican Attorney General’s Office about the outstanding arrest warrant for Cruz-Santoyo. ERO immediately initiated a follow-up investigation and developed information on the suspect’s whereabouts.
