Just recently, an illegal alien was placed under arrest for allegedly killing a fellow crew member during a berserk stabbing spree, while aboard a fishing boat named “Captain Billy Haver” off the East coast.
What’s worse, this apparently wasn’t the undocumented immigrant’s first murderous act. Prior to the attack and subsequent killing, the suspect had been placed in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center for assaulting his soon-to-be ex-wife but had subsequently been released on bond.
Many people are asking why, if he was in the country illegally, was he allowed to post bond.
Specifically, law enforcement officials in Massachusetts placed Franklin Freddy Meave Vazquez, who’s a 27-year-old Mexican national living in the United States illegally, under arrest earlier this week on one charge of “murder” and one charge of “attempted murder” shortly after he allegedly stabbed one person to death and injured two others while working on a fishing boat approximately fifty-five miles off of the coast.
According to reports, the incident, which technically occurred close enough to the US to be considered federal jurisdiction, began with Vazquez, who was armed with a knife and hammer, initiating aggression against another shipmate.
After badly wounding the individual, the illegal alien then reportedly assaulted two other crew members and proceeded to climb onto the ship’s mast. Eventually, though, the others on board the ship managed to capture him.
In addition to capturing the dangerous criminal, the captain of the ship also put out a distress call, which was subsequently answered by a German cruise ship. The crew members were there brought aboard the ship to be treated by their doctors, where one later died.
To make matters worse, Vazquez had actually been captured on charges of “abduction by force, intimidation, or deception” and placed in an ICE detention center several months before the incident took place for allegedly assaulting his ex-wife, who’s currently in the process of divorcing him.
Bafflingly, though, he was later released by the federal officials on bond, which many agree was a huge mistake.
“In March, he assaulted her and strangled her and held her against her will,” explained Lindsay McDannold, the mother of his soon-to-be ex-wife, while speaking to reporters about the matter. She also noted that he’s supposedly addicted to heroin and pills.
“I think it’s a travesty. I think the court system failed,” continued MacDannold, adding, “I think they should do a better job in terms of policing these people when they come in.”
If convicted, Vazquez could be sentenced to life in prison and will be subject to deportation if he ends up being released any sooner.
However, it looks like the victim’s family may have a wrongful death case against the state.
Alarmingly, it’s not entirely uncommon for someone to be harmed or killed by an illegal alien.
Last month, for instance, Juan Castillo Reyes, an undocumented immigrant who had been in the country illegally since 2005, was sentenced to five years behind bars after pleading guilty to one charge of “vehicular homicide” and one charge of “driving without a license.”
According to reports, he received the charges after causing a car accident that killed a 23-year-old airman of the US Air Force.
Several weeks before that, a 36-year-old illegal alien from Peru was reportedly arrested by law enforcement officials in California on suspicion of sexually assaulting at least four women while allegedly pretending to be working as a rideshare driver.
Prior to that, a 21-year-old undocumented immigrant from El Salvador who’s also an alleged MS-13 gang member was reportedly found guilty of helping to murder a 15-year-old boy in Massachusetts. Apparently, he lured the teen to a park and then stabbed him to death with the help of other gang members.
And before that, an 18-year-old illegal immigrant who’s also believed to be in MS-13 was arrested by Maryland law enforcement officials for reportedly participating in the murder of an unidentified man and then helping his fellow gang members bury the body in the woods.
In addition to harming and killing numerous American citizens, illegal aliens have also been caught undermining the integrity of the US voting process.
For example, earlier this year, Texas law enforcement officials placed a 37-year-old undocumented immigrant from Mexico under arrest and charged her with “voter impersonation and ineligible voting” for reportedly stealing another person’s identity, which she then used to illegally vote in several past elections.
And shortly after that, the state’s authorities also arrested another illegal immigrant for purportedly marking votes on other people’s ballots without their consent or knowledge while volunteering at a voting center.
Without a doubt, many would agree that the incident involving Vazquez is yet another perfect example of why illegal immigration must not be tolerated.
