Three Americans killed in Ohio crash by illegal alien drunk-driver

From 13abc.com: Three people are dead after a crash in Jerusalem Township early Sunday morning. Authorities responded to the deadly scene at Cousino and Seaman Roads after midnight.

State troopers said the driver of a van, Alejandro Ramirez-Jaramillo, 26, was driving while intoxicated. He allegedly ran a stop sign on northbound Cousino and hit a white SUV traveling eastbound on Seaman. The family in the SUV were pronounced dead at the scene.

Those victims of the crash have been identified as: Robin Shellhammer, 60, of Oregon; his wife, Barbara Shellhammer, 56, and their daughter Whitney Meinke, 33, from Curtice.

All travelers in Jaramillo’s vehicle suffered minor injuries.

Barb Shellhammer was the director of Nourish Early Learning along Navarre and that’s where a makeshift memorial continues to grow.

Meinke served as a teacher with the Benton-Carroll-Salem school district. She taught third grade at RC Waters Elementary School.

Ramirez-Jaramillo is charged with aggravated vehicular homicide. He was booked at the Lucas County Jail and held for U.S. Border Patrol.

A Border Patrol spokesperson confirms to 13abc Ramirez-Jaramillo was in the United State illegally.

statement from the spokesperson reads, “On March 26, 2017, U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Sandusky Bay Station (SBY) responded to a request from the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) to identify the driver involved in a traffic accident that resulted in three fatalities. SBY Agents responded to St. Charles Mercy Hospital in Oregon, Ohio where they interviewed the driver who freely admitted to Agents that he is a Mexican citizen illegally present in the United States. The driver was released from the hospital and transported to the Lucas County Jail by OSHP. The subject is currently in OSHP custody facing charges related to causing the deaths of three subjects while operating a vehicle under the influence. The United States Border Patrol placed a detainer on the subject.

Agents confirm one of the passengers in the vehicle was also in the United States illegally, “Additionally, after identifying the driver OSHP informed the SBY Agents that a passenger in the vehicle was also at the hospital. The agents made contact with the subject, who also freely admitted to being in the United States illegally. The subject was released from St. Charles Mercy Hospital and was taken into custody by SBY Agents at that time. The subject was processed with a Notice to Appear and was turned over to ICE-ERO.”

Illegal immigrant (with a criminal background) in controversial arrest pleads guilty to unlawful reentry

illegal

I don’t see what’s “controversial” about arresting this illegal alien. She/he (it’s a transgender woman) has an extensive criminal background.

Bye bye.

From Fox News: The illegal immigrant who was arrested in February after seeking a protective order from her boyfriend pled guilty to illegal reentry Friday, according to an agreement with United States attorney Richard Durbin.

“In this case, removal from the United States is presumptively mandatory,” reads the agreement, a copy of which was obtained by KFOX. A new hearing will be held on April 13th.

Interest in Irvin Gonzalez’s case hit the national level nearly overnight when she was arrested on Feb. 9 while walking into a courthouse to get a protective order.

It prompted local and federal lawmakers to ask the question: Even if she is an illegal immigrant, is it appropriate to arrest someone when they’re walking out of a courthouse to get a protective order from an abusive boyfriend?

Lawmakers were also concerned about the fact that the affidavit didn’t appear to match what happened. The original affidavit said she was arrested outside the courthouse. But security footage emerged which appeared to show a federal agent confront her inside and escort her out.

An amended affidavit was filed on Feb. 28 stating that she was confronted and escorted in the building but arrested outside.

Gonzalez has a criminal history in the United States. She has been deported six times and spent over a year in jail for crimes including domestic battery, illegal entry, and possession of stolen mail. The criminal history may have been extended had it not been for her illegal entry arrest, authorities say.

On Jan. 13, during a police interrogation, she admitted to a money order washing scheme. Gonzalez told police she and her boyfriend stole money orders from mailboxes, washed the names off with transmission fluid, added her boyfriend’s name and deposited the money into his bank account.

U.S. attorney general says sanctuary cities may lose federal grants

triggered

Twofer: Save money and liberals’ heads explode.

From MSN: U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Monday that cities and states that protect immigrant illegal alien felons from federal immigration laws may lose grants from the Justice Department.

Failure to deport aliens who are convicted of criminal offenses puts whole communities at risk, especially immigrant communities in the very sanctuary jurisdictions that seek to protect the perpetrators,” Sessions told a White House news briefing.

His statement drew swift pushback from New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who said his office would continue helping local governments “have the tools they need to protect their immigrant communities.”

Sessions said the Justice Department would withhold, and potentially claw back, grants to so-called sanctuary cities and other localities, such as counties, that are not in compliance with federal immigration law.

Sessions, who heads the Justice Department, said one of his agency’s offices was expecting to award more than $4.1 billion in grants this fiscal year. Sanctuary cities help illegal immigrants avoid deportation by limiting cooperation with federal immigration authorities and other agencies.

“I strongly urge our nation’s states and cities and counties to consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws and to rethink these policies,” Sessions said.

He gave as an example Kate Steinle, who was shot to death in San Francisco two years ago by illegal immigrant Francisco Sanchez, who had already been deported five times and had seven felony convictions.

The city had earlier released Sanchez from custody even though immigration authorities had filed a request that he be kept in custody until they could pick him up for removal, Sessions said.

In his response to Sessions, Schneiderman, a Democrat, called the Republican president’s immigration polices “un-American.”

“Despite what Attorney General Sessions implied this afternoon, state and local governments and law enforcement have broad authority under the Constitution to not participate in federal immigration enforcement,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “As my office’s legal guidance makes clear, President Trump lacks the constitutional authority to broadly cut off funding to states and cities just because they have lawfully acted to protect immigrant illegal alien families.”

Schneiderman said that public safety depends on trust between law enforcement and those they serve, but that Trump’s policies “only serve to undercut that trust.”

Last week, Maryland’s Democratic-controlled House of Delegates approved legislation to bar police statewide from checking the immigration status of individuals they arrest or from keeping them locked up longer than otherwise warranted at the request of federal agents seeking to deport them. The state’s Republican governor, Larry Hogan, has said he would veto the bill if it came to his desk.

The Maryland measure was in line with dozens of municipalities and local jurisdictions across the country that have declared themselves sanctuary cities, including New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington.

So far no such statewide designations have been enacted. President Donald Trump in January signed an executive order seeking to withhold federal funds from local governments that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

Mexican archdiocese calls citizens who help build Trump’s wall traitors

maga

Via NY Post: Mexico’s biggest Catholic archdiocese says that any of the country’s citizens who help build President Trump’s planned border wall will be immoral traitors.

A blistering editorial in Desde la fe, the archdiocese’s weekly publication published, urged the government on Sunday to push back against companies looking to profit from the wall, Reuters reported.

“Any company intending to invest in the wall of the fanatic Trump would be immoral, but above all, its shareholders and owners should be considered traitors to the homeland,” the editorial said. “In practice, signing up for a project that is a serious affront to dignity is shooting yourself in the foot,” it continued, noting that the wall would feed prejudice and discrimination.

It also accused the government of responding “tepidly” to the country’s firms that are considering working on the project to gain business.

A spokesman for the archdiocese — centered in Mexico City and presided over by Cardinal Norberto Rivera, the country’s most prominent Catholic cleric — said the editorial represents the views of the diocese.

Last Tuesday, Ildefonso Guajardo, the country’s secretary of economy, said it would not be in the “interests” of Mexican firms to help build the controversial structure.

Mexican cement maker Cemex has said it is willing to provide quotes to supply raw materials for the wall, but will not help to build it, Reuters reported. Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua, another construction material company, has also expressed its willingness to work on the project.

Beginning on the campaign trail, Trump has long promised a border wall between the US and its southern neighbor, in an effort to prevent illegal immigrants from crossing into the country.

He has repeatedly declared that Mexico would pay for the wall — which the Mexican government has resolutely said it would not do.

Illegal alien charged in kidnapping of Texas woman

illegal

The woman was trying to help the man. Never a good idea to help an illegal. Let the authorities deal with ‘em.

From Fox News: An illegal immigrant tied up a Texas woman, forced her into her car and tried to drive off with her on Wednesday, but the woman was able to escape and eventually helped lead authorities to her suspected attacker, officials said.

The man was not identified, and it was unknown how long he had been in the U.S. or what country he comes from. A media relations person was not available on Sunday to respond to questions from Fox News.

The man was charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit a felony and aggravated kidnapping. He also faces immigration proceedings, and is being held at Dimmit County Jail, a Friday statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.

The woman told authorities she had been supplying food and water to the man, who was staying somewhere behind her house, for three days before he allegedly tried to kidnap her. She escaped as the man tried to start her car, officials said.

After an emergency call from an onlooker, agents found the woman walking along a road with her hands still bound. She told officials about the harrowing incident and CBP agents and Dimmit County Sheriff’s deputies immediately began searching for the suspect.

The man was found unresponsive “lying in the brush” – though medical technicians later determined he was “faking his condition,” the statement said.

“The skill sets of the men and women of the United States Border Patrol are simply incredible,” Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak said in the statement. “Tracking and arresting this subject resulted in the detention of an undocumented alien with a propensity for violence.”

Sandra Hehir: Killed by an illegal alien

Another story for the illegal-alien-supporting media to ignore.

From Illegal Alien Crime Report: (WORCESTER, MA: The Boston Globe) – A man is being held without bail Monday over allegations that he killed a a 49-year-old Worcester woman who worked in that city’s public school system.

The body of Sandra Hehir was found in her Congress Street apartment Feb. 5, and authorities later said she had been strangled.

Jose Melendez, 54, of Worcester, is charged with her murder, and the Worcester district attorney’s office said DNA recovered from the crime scene had connected him to the case.

Melendez, who also uses the names Alvarado and Segura, had been arrested last week on a warrant out of Lynn. He had defaulted on probation in a 2014 breaking and entering case, prosecutors said. He also faces charges in two Worcester drug cases for allegedly giving police a false name.

The suspect was arraigned on Monday in Worcester District Court, and he will return to court April 13.

According to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, Hehir was known as “Buffy” to her friends and worked as a middle school instructional assistant.

“The Worcester Police detectives together with my ADAs and the State Police Crime Lab did some great work to get us to this arraignment today,” Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said in a statement.

Another story for the illegal-alien-supporting media to ignore.

From Fox News: A member of the MS-13 street gang who had been deported from the U.S. four times stabbed two women and sexually assaulted a 2-year-old girl in a New York City suburb, according to local police.

Tommy Vladim Alvarado-Ventura, 31, attacked the child Tuesday in the Long Island town of Hempstead while the girl’s mother was at work and he was babysitting, Nassau County Police said in a news release.

Prosecutors said he later attacked a woman outside a bar early Wednesday after getting into an argument over buying marijuana, punching and stabbing her in the back, thigh and mouth before running away, according to police. The woman was hospitalized with a collapsed lung.

When he returned to the apartment, he then got into a confrontation with his girlfriend when she noticed her 2-year-old daughter had “suffered severe injuries that were inflicted by him,” according to police. He then allegedly punched and stabbed his girlfriend “multiple times,” according to police, before he was able to grab her children and contact authorities.

 “This is, in 28 years, probably the most heinous criminal act I’ve ever seen,” Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter told CBS New York. “It really is nauseating.”

Police said Alvarado-Ventura was deported to El Salvador four times between 2006 and 2011, and that it is not known when he returned to the United States.

The 31-year-old pleaded not guilty Thursday and was ordered held without bail. He faces life in prison.
