Illegal alien charged with mass rape and murder is found hiding in Massachusetts

An illegal Guatemalan alien who was first deported in 2004, has been  arrested in Massachusetts where he had been hiding to avoid charges in his homeland of the rape and mass murder of at least 70 women and 107 children, all of whom were members of the Maya Achi indigenous people.

From, Springfield, Mass.

An undocumented Guatemalan accused of sexually assaulting indigenous women before they were slaughtered in a 1982 massacre was caught hiding in Massachusetts, federal authorities said.

Francisco Cuxum Alvarado, 64, was found in Waltham on April 30 nearly a year after Interpol sent a notice looking for him, according to a federal affidavit. Alvarado told a federal immigration agent that he was a member of the Rabinal civil defense patrol, one of several militias that helped Guatemalan armed forces in the massacres of the indigenous Maya Achi people in the early 1980s.

Alvarado, who was once deported after illegally entering the country in 2004, was arrested on April 30 and charged with illegal re-entry, a felony. He was arraigned Tuesday on the re-entry charge and detained.

“Mr. Cuxum Alvarado is in Massachusetts illegally, evading accountability for human rights violations in Guatemala,” U.S. District Attorney Andrew E. Lelling said. “While many immigrants come to this country seeking a better life, Mr. Cuxum Alvarado came here illegally, to escape a dark, criminal past. This case highlights the important work of Homeland Security Investigations and [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] in identifying and removing war criminals, human rights violators, and other dangerous aliens who illegally seek a safe haven in the United States.”

Local, federal government officials can’t agree over basic facts in ICE courthouse arrests; judge may need more evidence

Judge Indira Talwani said she needed to “dig in” and may need additional evidence from the federal government and the local district attorneys suing.

According to the affidavit, authorities in Guatemala charged Alvarado in May 2018 with crimes against humanity for allegedly participating in the mass sexual assault of Maya Achi women of Rio Negro on May 13, 1982.

The 1982 attack was one of several in the Rio Negro massacres that left more than 400 Maya Achi people dead. Hundreds of others were forcibly evicted.

Most of the men had been killed or had fled by the time Guatemalan armed forces and civil defense patrols entered the village on May 13, 1982. The soldiers forced the remaining women and children to march out of the village, according to the affidavit.

The women and children were threatened, beaten and raped by soldiers and civil defense patrol members. Then they were hanged, stabbed with machetes or shot in an area called Cerro Pacoxom. At least 70 women and 107 children were murdered, according to the affidavit.

Years after the country’s civil war ended, Guatemalan investigators looked into Alvarado’s alleged role in the 1982 attack. In 2018, the Guatemalan government charged him in the mass sexual assaults, the affidavit states.

It is unclear when Alvarado re-entered the United States, but he could not be located in Guatemala when he was charged. The Guatemalan government obtained an Interpol notice about Alvarado on May 28, 2018, asking law enforcement agencies worldwide to provisionally arrest him pending extradition.

Matthew Langille, a special agent with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations, wrote in the affidavit that Alvarado admitted to being a member of the Rabinal civil defense patrols between 1980 and 1984, during the time of the attacks.

“Homeland Security Investigations looks forward to the disturbing and egregious allegations against this individual being openly and fairly adjudicated in federal court,” said Peter C. Fitzhugh, special agent in charge of HSI in Boston.

Well, geez, according to Nancyy Pelosi, he’s entitled to be welcomed in our country with open arms (and open borders) b/c he, too, is “one of God’s children.” I’m Eagerly awaiting his invitation to the d’Alessandro/Pelosi summer family reunion this year. Let me know if any of you hear how it goes.


Yeah, let’s hear it for “sanctuary cities” everyone! Give this monster another chance, he really deserves it….


Hopefully “Bubba” will take care of him in prison.


Jeepers, I hope Guatemala didn’t get in too much of a hurry to find this killer. Only 37 years…that has to be some kind of record. Just another “spark of divinity” that the Demonrats want to welcome to our country.?

And Massachusetts is, of course, a “sanctuary” state.

What Alvarado wrought upon his own country he could seek to wreak here; I suppose it’s up to the way he “feels” about it. Well to hell with him. (And by the way, WHAT, if anything, did the Reagan Administration have to say about the Guatemalan Civil War? Right. Thought so). We on this side of the equation understand that Soros, Pelosi, Feinstein, Schumer, et al., couldn’t care less about the potential danger illegal aliens pose to American citizens. Recall Pelosi’s canarying about “the Divine Spark” inside of some MS-13 members. As a matter of fact, I am confident that… Read more »


No better place to hide than Massachusetts, Home of Pocahontas. That parasite of a man should sit on the high voltage chair naked and wet. Zap!


This animal needs to be sent back and tried. Think about this. They would put people at risk here in order to get another illegal vote. These leftists are truly “The Enemy”.
