ICE HSI and PGPD arrest Maryland man wanted for 30-year-old murder in Texas
Incredibly, there is a long list of politicians and high ranking
government officials on all levels of our government who actually oppose
the effective enforcement of those laws and are willing to trivialize
the importance of those laws and do whatever they can to block the
enforcement of those laws.
An ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) news release, from April 19, 2012, reports on the April 16th
arrest of Jesus Blas-Perea aka Severino Tapia Rosales, an illegal alien
from Mexico, who is wanted for allegedly committing the crime of murder
in the first degree in connection of the December 1981 murder of Jose
Santos-Duque in Houston, Texas.
It is disconcerting that the title of the ICE news release identifies
this illegal alien and alleged murderer as being a “Maryland man.” As
has become the practice of the current administration, everything
possible is now being done to obfuscate the profound impact that illegal
immigration has on our nation including where the loss of innocent
lives are concerned. While the alien in this case was, in fact,
residing in Maryland, he is an illegal alien from Mexico.
Next it is important to note that alleged murderer was previously
deported on two separate occasions and was able to enter the United
States notwithstanding the routine assertions about how secure our
borders are. The question that is never asked or answered is, “How
secure is secure enough?”
The successful arrest of the murder suspect in this case was brought
about by having ICE cooperate with local police. While there are
politicians who often claim that when local police work cooperatively
with ICE that community policing suffers, the reality is just the
opposite. It must be presumed that the news of this arrest will provide
a strong measure of comfort to the immigrant community in which Jesus
Blas-Perea was hiding in plain sight before his arrest.
Finally it is important to understand the magnitude of the community
safety crisis that is created by having huge numbers of illegal aliens
easily gaining entry into the United States by circumventing the
inspections process that is designed to protect the lives of our
citizens. Consider this quote from the ICE news release:
In October 2011, Operation “Found ‘Em” was initiated
by HSI Houston, to assist the Harris County, Texas, District Attorney’s
(DA) Office Fugitive and Cold Case Unit in the identification and
apprehension of suspected criminal aliens, and foreign nationals with
lawful status suspected of having committed murders in the Harris County
The DA’s office has estimated that they have
approximately 800 unsolved cold murder cases dating as far back as the
1970s and that more than 50 percent of the suspects are believed to be
or were foreign nationals. The arrest of Jesus Blas-Perea is the ninth
arrest under this initiative.
In just one county in Texas, more than 400 unsolved cold murder cases
involve suspects who are believed to be or to have been “foreign
nationals.” The phrase “have been” means that it is believed that at
least some of these foreign-born criminals have been granted lawful
status in the United States and, perhaps, even United States citizenship
after they committed the crimes for which they are being sought!
Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of Homeland Security has stated that
there is no “spillover violence” from Mexico. Ms. Napolitano and other
members of the administration, as well as various politicians who are
happy to create “Sanctuary Cities” have stated that our immigration laws
are not important.
Election Day is rapidly approaching- any politician who refuses to
take our borders or our immigration laws seriously must be made to seek
