Just one little fact missing from this headline: Mexican dad detained after leaving sanctuary church to meet with immigration officials

Illegal alien Oliver-Bruno (r): Previously convicted of committing fraud/AP photo

What the NY Post article below fails to mention is that the “generous” and “kind” illegal alien was a convicted illegal caught trying to enter US with forged documents. From CBS News (their headline was just as misleading, at least they provided facts in the article):

“ICE said Oliver-Bruno, who has lived in North Carolina for two decades, had no legal basis to be in the U.S. and had exhausted his “extensive” appeals. Oliver-Bruno pleaded guilty in 2014 to using false documents to try to re-enter the U.S. in Texas after a trip outside the country, according to court documents.”

But run with the sympathetic undocumented immigrant narrative. It still won’t change the fact that this illegal alien committed fraud and church members were harboring a fugitive.

From NY Post: A Mexican father who hid out in a North Carolina church for close to a year to avoid deportation was detained when he attended an appointment with immigration officials.

Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, had a scheduled meeting Friday at a Raleigh-area immigration office to provide fingerprints and discuss a petition to delay his deportation, so that he could stay in the country with his wife and son, who is a US citizen, local outlets reported.

About 20 minutes after he walked into the office, plainclothes US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested him.

The CityWell United Methodist Church’s pastor, Cleve May, and more than two dozen other people who’d accompanied Oliver-Bruno to the appointment surrounded the car taking Oliver-Bruno away and were also arrested, CNN and the Effingham Daily News newspaper reported.

The pastor said church member feared the immigration appointment had been a trap set up by ICE to nab Oliver-Bruno — who came to Greenville NC., from Veracruz, Mexico more than 20 years ago.

Congressmen David Price and G.K. Butterfield, both North Carolina Democrats, said they were “extremely alarmed” by the detention.

“It appears ICE has acted in concert with officials at USCIS, who instructed Mr. Oliver-Bruno to appear at local USCIS offices to discuss his deferred deportation,” the lawmakers said in a statement.

During his 11 months hiding out in living quarters built for him inside the church, Oliver-Bruno attended English classes, played guitar and read during services. “He helped construct his living quarters. He’s remarkable. He’s very generous and kind,” May told CNN.

Oliver-Bruno will remain in US detention for the duration of his case.

Illegal alien charged after killing two people in car crash in Raleigh, NC

The “man charged” in this crash is, in fact, an illegal alien/Raleigh Police Department photo


It took me some time to find out that this driver was an illegal alien. Most of the stories had a headline of “man charged” and never provided the information from DHS. Way to hide the truth, SRM.
From WRAL: A 27-year-old man was charged Sunday in connection with a wrong-way crash that killed two people Thursday night on Interstate 40 in Raleigh.
Police said a Honda Civic with four people inside was driving eastbound in the westbound lanes of the highway at Wade Avenue.  Rupresh Uprety and Pricil Chundapurakal were killed in the crash. The other two people in the Civic were being treated for injuries at WakeMed in Raleigh.
The pickup driver, who was on his way to spread salt in a parking lot, walked away with cuts and bruises. (Also omitted from this article, the illegal alien was charged with DUI.)
Authorities on Sunday charged Anibal Raul Ambrocio-Chilel, 27, of Raleigh, with two counts of felony death by vehicle and one count each of driving while impaired and reckless driving to endanger. He was being held at the Wake County jail under a $410,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court Monday.
The Department of Homeland Security put an immigration detainer on him, saying that data on file and statements he made to authorities suggest he is either in the U.S. illegally or is subject to deportation.
A Durham County 911 dispatcher called the 911 communications center in Raleigh at 11:35 p.m. Thursday to warn them the Civic was headed toward Raleigh.
“I think Davis [Drive] is the last place somebody saw it, but they said it was flying down the highway, a dark-colored, older-model Honda,” the Durham dispatcher said. “We don’t have any of our officers that are in the area that are probably going to be able to catch it before it hits Raleigh.”
Three minutes later, an eastbound driver called Raleigh 911 to report the collision.
“I was going one direction. They were coming up beside me on the other side of the road, and I noticed them, and then they hit somebody,” the man told the dispatcher. “I could tell they hit something because I could see, I could see a plume of something, I don’t know what. So, they may have hit the rail, but I think it was another car.”
North Carolina Transportation Secretary Jim Trogdon said Friday that wrong-way crashes are a national problem, but the I-40 crash represents at least eight such collisions in the Triangle since last fall. According to the state Department of Transportation, there were more than 500 wrong-way crashes statewide between 2000 and 2016, with 145 people killed and another 643 injured.
