Border Patrol Arrests Convited Murder from El Salvador

Here is another perfect example of why we need a border first approach to immigration.

This particular illegal alien has had a “three decade” crime spree in the U.S., which included assault on a police officer, homicide, assault, burglary, and multiple deportations.

Open borders attracts criminals looking for new hunting grounds.  Close the borders first, deport any illegal convicted of any crime, and then, and only then will be talk about amnesty and new immigration quotas.

Sometimes adults have to make hard decisions and feelings cannot supersede facts and reality.

Del Rio, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station apprehended a convicted murderer on Thursday.Agents responded to a call for assistance, at the intersection of Luis and Roosevelt streets, by an Eagle Pass Police officer. The subject, Hernan Alvarado-Velasquez, 51, an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador, was found to be in the country illegally. Alvarado-Velasquez was arrested and transported to the Eagle Pass Border Patrol Station for processing. During processing, agents discovered that Alvarado-Velasquez was a convicted criminal with a long criminal history spanning three decades in six states.

Alvarado-Velasquez has multiple convictions and arrests for assault, burglary and other offenses as well as multiple deportations. Alvarado-Velasquez was arrested and convicted in 1994 in Arlington, Va. for assaulting a police officer. In 1997 he was convicted of homicide in Miami and sentenced to 10 years’ incarceration. Alvarado-Velasquez was most recently deported on Oct. 8, 2013.

“Our encounter with this dangerous individual shows the type of environment agents and law enforcement officers deal with on a daily basis,” said Rodolfo Karisch, Chief Patrol Agent, Del Rio Sector. “We rely on the invaluable training we receive to protect our communities and the nation.”

Alvarado-Velasquez faces a charge of Re-entry After Deportation – 8 USC 1326.
