Man Shot and Killed in Front of His Grandchildren

Houston - He made a vicious threat and allegedly carried out a deadly plan. Houston police say Francisco Arzarte called his ex-girlfriend Friday and told her he was suffering because of their break up and she was going to suffer too.

Hours later around 12:15 a.m. Saturday, according to investigators, Arzarte kicked in his ex-girlfriend's parents' front door and opened fire. 63 year old Guillermo Valdez was shot several times and died. His wife, Maria Valdez, was also shot a number of times. She is now in critical condition. The couple was gunned down in their own home in front of their three grandchildren who are all under the age of nine. "A lot of crazy people around here" says one neighbor there in the Southwest Houston trailer home community.

Arzarte dated the Valdez's daughter for 10 years and has five children with her. "I'm in shock. What can I tell you? The kids play with my little brother" says neighbor Julio Castillo. "It's crazy. You have to know who you're dating these days" says Castillo.

Neighbors say they never thought anything like this would happen to such good people. "I knew the old man pretty good.(He would say) hi everyday. You know he cuts grass and stuff. Nice family.
Nice guy. Nice family. I'm sorry to hear that" says Castillo.

The children who were there at their grandparents home were not injured. Francisco Arzarte is still on the loose but he is now charged with murder. Police fear before he is arrested Arzarte will go after his ex-girlfriend or skip town to Mexico.

The Arrogance of ILLEGALS Who Think They’ve Done Nothing Wrong
For Proclaiming His Innocence of a Brooklyn Rape,
Early in the morning last June 4, William Giraldo stopped at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Sunset Park for a coffee. Two days later, standing next to his fiancé, the 24-year-old car-service driver saw himself on the local newscast. It was a 20-second grainy video clip of Giraldo at the cash register of Dunkin’ Donuts, wearing a white t-shirt and white earphones.
Initially, he and his fiancée Sandra Alvarado, laughed at the sight of him on television. But after realizing that the New York Police Department was looking for him as the suspect in an attempted rape near the donut shop, Giraldo began to panic. While he was the man in the surveillance video, he had not committed the crime.
Yet as the result of coming forward voluntarily, the father of two now faces deportation — not for the crime but for his status as an illegal immigrant. He is due in court next month where a judge will make the decision whether he stays with his family in Brooklyn or returns back to Colombia.
“I did not do anything wrong,” said Giraldo.“I did what any person would do to clear up their name in the situation. I went to the police station. The last thing on my mind was my immigration status. I just wanted to clear up my name.”
The events leading to Giraldo’s tenuous situation only began with the surveillance video itself. After a sleepless night and at the urging of his family, Giraldo decided to go to the nearest police precinct, in Bensonhurst, to absolve himself from any wrongdoing.
Unfortunately for Giraldo, proving his innocence turned out to be more difficult than he expected. After he told the police he was the man in the video but not the criminal they were looking for, he was sent to Brooklyn’s Special Victims Unit for further interrogation. The 28-year-old woman who was attacked was also brought in for a line-up, where she picked Giraldo as her attacker.
On June 8, which was supposed to be the day of his wedding in Florida, Giraldo was arraigned. He recalls police officers and people outside the court house in Brooklyn accosting him. The night before, the New York Post, New York Daily News, local news stations, and various other news outlets had reported his arrest in the attempted rape of a young woman in Sunset Park.
“Most of them knew who I was,” said Giraldo.“So they were calling my name. They were just looking at me like garbage. I heard people in the streets screaming names and insulting me.”
He was charged with four felonies and three misdemeanors involving rape, sex abuse, robbery, assault and sexual misconduct. Judge John Wilson posted his bail at $200,000. Giraldo spent what he called a terrifying few days in protective custody away from the regular detainees at Rikers Island.
At his next scheduled court appearance on June 10, Giraldo hoped he would be set free. He had learned from his lawyer, Heriberto Cabrera, that his accuser had told the court she had made a mistake when she picked Giraldo from the line-up.
Giraldo did not see the judge that day, but was told by his lawyer that Judge Desmond Green had released him out on custody without bail for his criminal case. Yet, because of Giraldo’s illegal immigration status, the court had turned him over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody. Giraldo spent a few more days at Rikers Island before being transferred to an immigration detention center in New Jersey’s Bergen County jail.
After a month, Giraldo was released on $7,500 bail. His next court appearance is set for September 8 for his criminal case and September 13 for his immigration case.

According to Lou Martinez, an immigration official based in New York, Giraldo entered the United States in 1999 on a tourist visa for a temporary period, not to exceed a year, from Colombia.“I left Colombia with my mom at the age 12 and never looked back,” Giraldo said.

He has not returned back to Colombia since moving to Borough Park, a working-class neighborhood in Brooklyn, with his mother. Giraldo does not remember much of his life in Colombia.“All I know is my life here in New York,” he said.

His mother enrolled Giraldo at John J. Pershing Middle School in Sunset Park, where he learned English. He eventually graduated from Franklin D. Roosevelt High School in Borough Park, where Giraldo first met his fiancé Sandra Alvarado, a Colombian citizen residing legally in the United States.

After a few years what Giraldo calls “doing the whole party and club scene,” as well as a failed first marriage, he decided to settle down with his longtime girlfriend. The two moved into a small but comfortable apartment in Bensonhurst. Giraldo began working as a driver for La New Express car-service company and Alvarado waited tables at the Olive Garden in Time Square. Giraldo has a 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son from a previous marriage.

Meanwhile, Giraldo never made any effort to become a legal resident of the United States, hoping instead of avoid coming to the attention of authorities.“I thought I could just keep my head down and not get in trouble with the police, he recalled,“I’d be okay.”

But Giraldo did come into contact with police as a result of the rape case, and because of his illegal immigration status, he spent 30 days in the Bergen County jail. Giraldo’s detention at the county jail in New Jersey occurred because of a federal program, called the Secure Communities Program, which makes it easier for immigration authorities to access the fingerprints of people booked at local jails and begin the deportation proceeding for illegal immigrants. Although Governor Andrew Cuomo suspended New York’s involvement with the federal program on June 1, Giraldo was still booked by immigration authorities on June 10.

“I don’t think it is right from their part,” said Giraldo.“ It was actually illegal. It is like they said,‘We couldn’t throw anything against you, I’m going to throw you to the lion’s cage.’”

While jailed at Rikers Island, Giraldo was interviewed by immigration officers, who determined Giraldo was in the country illegal and placed on hold for deportation on him.

Immigration officials have said the Secure Communities Program is aimed at criminals who have committed serious offenses. However, the majority of people held at Rikers are like Giraldo, with no criminal or minor misdemeanors. According to New York’s City Council, in 2009 about half of the immigrants flagged by federal authorities at Rikers Island had no prior conviction and 20 percent had a misdemeanor as their highest conviction.

“This is why programs like the Secure Communities and others do not work,” said Lindsey Nash, an attorney at the Immigrant Justice Clinic of Cardozo School of Law.“They cast such a huge net, use no discretion and strain the relationship between illegal immigrants and law enforcement.”

Last week, the Obama administration said it would stop deportation proceedings against illegal immigrants who pose no threat to national security. The change in policy comes after the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency shift in capturing illegal immigrants with serious offenses. Last year, half of illegals removed—more than 195,000—were convicted criminals. Nicole Navas, a spokesperson for the immigration agency, said they expect the number to decrease this year.

The new mandate from the White House is expected to lead to the review about 300,000 cases of illegal immigrants currently in the removal proceedings. Many of these cases involve people who came to the United States as young children, and have gone through American schools, sometimes continuing into college.

Critics of the plan say it is cutting corners when it comes to immigration law.“This is a slap in the face to those who are currently in the process of coming to America,” said Bob Dane, spokesperson for Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, a Washington-based organization that seeks to stop illegal immigration.“It is unfair and rewards the law-breaking.”

Giraldo sees this opportunity has a second chance but remains cautions.

“I’m happy to hear the news,” he said,“but I won’t believe it until I see it,” he said.
After his release last month, Giraldo is trying to rebuild his life. His first act as temporarily free man was to marry his longtime girlfriend, Sandra Alvarado. Although they were supposed to get married in Florida, they decided on a backyard wedding in their home in Bensonhurst.

Giraldo has nothing bad to say to the woman who accused him of attempted rape but disagrees with the legal system decision to turning him over to immigration. He has quit his job and wants to go back to school for graphic design in the fall. Giraldo is also seeking therapy to deal with the stress of the past couple of months.

“I just need someone to talk to about this what happened to me,” he said.“I’ve been feeling paranoid about leaving my house or being alone in public. I need to get my life back.”

Next month, Giraldo will be in court for both his criminal and immigration case. He and his lawyer expect the criminal charges to officially be dropped. Giraldo has been told by his lawyer that the news of the immediate change in the deportation of illegal immigrants will affect the outcome of his future, the young man remains unsure.

“I still think it is in God’s hands,” he said.

Illegal Aliens and Crime: Statistics not on Obama's side
President Barack Obama's opponents -- especially those working for the Border Patrol and in law enforcement -- claim the recent change in immigration policy is meant to seal his Latino voting base, especially those who are suspected of being legal or illegal aliens who are fraudulently voting in U.S. elections.

Obama's opponents -- especially those working for the Border Patrol and in law enforcement -- claim the whole change in immigration policy is meant to seal his Latino voting base, especially those who are suspected of being legal or illegal aliens who are fraudulently voting in U.S. elections.

"This...[is] more of the 'wait until they kill, rape, beat or molest someone here in America, then we'll deport them' logic. Any victims want to step up to the plate so they can make sure an illegal alien becomes a "felon", making him deportable under the Obama and Napolitano rules? Brilliant strategy. They say they'll deport "gang members" as well. We all feel so much safer now. The illegal alien cheerleaders (Raul Grijalva, Luis Gutierrez, etc.) will love this new strategy. Those of us who actually have to put our lives on the line and enforce the laws? Not so much," according to a statement by National Border Patrol Council, Local 2544

Statistical studies regarding illegal aliens and criminal activity are few and far between. But in a 2007 Government Accountability Office study of a sample population of 55,322 illegal aliens, analysts discovered that:

* They were arrested at least a total of 459,614 times, averaging about 8 arrests per illegal alien. Nearly all had more than one arrest. Thirty-eight percent (about 21,000) had between 2 and 5 arrests, 32 percent (about 18,000) had between 6 and 10 arrests, and 26 percent (about 15,000) had 11 or more arrests. Most of the arrests occurred after 1990.

* They were arrested for a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses, averaging about 13 offenses per illegal alien. One arrest incident may include multiple offenses, a fact that explains why there are nearly one and half times more offenses than arrests.

* Almost all of these illegal aliens were arrested for more than 1 offense. Slightly more than half of the 55,322 illegal aliens had between 2 and 10 offenses. About 45 percent of all offenses were drug or immigration offenses. About 15 percent were property-related offenses such as burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and property damage. About 12 percent were for violent offenses such as murder, robbery, assault, and sex-related crimes. The balance was for such other offenses as traffic violations, including driving under the influence; fraud--including forgery and counterfeiting; weapons violations; and obstruction of justice.

* Eighty percent of all arrests occurred in three states--California, Texas, and Arizona. Specifically, about 58 percent of all arrests occurred in California, 14 percent in Texas, and 8 percent in Arizona.



Meanwhile, Barbara Coe, an Internet political activist and blogger, on Saturday reported on an FBI crime study that also shows heavy illegal alien involvement in criminal activity:

* 83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.

* 86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque are for illegal aliens.

* 75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles , Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.

* 24.9% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 48.2% of all inmates in New Mexico detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 29%(630,000) convicted illegal alien felons fill our state and Federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually.

* 53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.

* 50% plus of all gang members in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

* 71% plus of all apprehended cars stolen in 2005 in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California were stolen by Illegal aliens or "transport coyotes."

* 47% of cited/stopped drivers in California have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 47%, 92% are illegal aliens.

* 63% of cited/stopped drivers in Arizona have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 63%, 97% are illegal aliens.

* 66% of cited/stopped drivers in New Mexico have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 66% 98% are illegal aliens.

* 380,000 plus "anchor babies" were born in the US to illegal alien parents in just one year, making 380,000 babies automatically US citizens.

Illegal Alien charged in hit-run death of boy, 4

SANTA ROSA -- Sonoma County prosecutors filed charges Monday against an allegedly unlicensed driver who authorities say ran over a 4-year-old boy in a Santa Rosa crosswalk and sped off.
Marcos Lopez Garcia, 22, was charged in Superior Court with felony hit-and-run as well as two misdemeanors, vehicular manslaughter and driving without a valid license. He made an initial court appearance Monday but did not enter a plea.
Garcia, who is being held without bail because federal officials suspect him of being an illegal immigrant, has two previous arrests for driving without a license, records show. Five days before Thursday's crash, police said, he was told not to drive until a court appearance in October.
Garcia was charged in connection with the crash that killed 4-year-old Christopher "Buddy" Rowe of Santa Rosa, who was on his way to soccer practice.
Christopher was hit at about 6 p.m. at West Ninth Street and Rockwell Place near Jacobs Park while crossing with his mother, his twin sister and his 6-year-old sister. He clung to life at Children's Hospital Oakland, but "his heart finally gave way" Friday morning, his family said in a statement Monday.
"Little Buddy will be remembered as an energetic, curious, active young boy who was also kind, compassionate and caring, especially with his twin sister," the family said. "We will always remember his ever-present smile, beautiful steel blue eyes and peace-loving nature.
"The man who stole Buddy's life from us will be one day free," the family said, "but we will always carry the burden of losing him forever."
Christopher and his family were crossing West Ninth in a marked crosswalk when he was hit by a westbound Honda Accord, police said. The car drove away from the intersection, which has no stop signs or signals.
Soon, a 47-year-old Santa Rosa man named Leroy Flach - who heard about the crash on his police scanner - spotted the car at Finley Park, less than a mile from the crash. He said he had called police after he saw the driver peeling off an orange San Francisco Giants decal from the rear window.
The man got into a Volvo driven by a woman, Flach said. He relayed the license plate number to police, who by 8 p.m. had found and arrested Garcia, 22, who lives near Jacobs Park.
Christopher is survived by his parents, James Rowe Jr. and Michelle Rowe; his older sister, Mimi; and his twin sister, Julia; as well as grandparents, uncles and cousins.
A memorial service is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday at St. Eugene's Cathedral in Santa Rosa.
The family asks that condolences and donations be sent to the Christopher Rowe Memorial Fund, 1007 W. College Ave., No. 313, Santa

DEA Agents bust Iraqi-Sinaloa cartel drug smuggling/explosive ring in San Diego

Federal agents in San Diego broke up a drug trafficking ring involving Iraqi immigrants who worked with one of Mexico’s biggest drug cartel.

Approximately 60 Iraqi immigrants were rounded up and arrested just east of San Diego after the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) completed a six-month investigation. The DEA Agents also collected drugs, grenades, assault weapons and homemade explosives.

Many of the (Christian) Iraqi’s arrested fled the Middle East to avoid threats from al-Qaida during the continuing wars. Authorities say the immigrants worked in concert with the Sinaloa cartel to transport weapons and drugs to Detroit, Michigan.

The DEA seized crystal meth (18 pounds), marijuana (3,500 pounds), cocaine and other narcotics. The agents also recovered four IEDs, 30 firearms and $630,000 in cash.

William Sherman, DEA special agent in charge of San Diego told the Associated Press,“the ring was going to sell a portion of the 3,500 pounds of marijuana, believed to belong to the Sinaloa cartel led by Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, who has become one of the world's richest and most-wanted men since he escaped from a Mexican prison 10 years ago.”
The recovery of explosives by DEA is particularly alarming as security across the country is heightened in preparation for the 10-year anniversary of 9/11.

One of the Iraqi’s immigrants told an undercover DEA agent that they were able to obtain more grenades from the Mexican Military personnel.

The arrested drug smugglers face a combination of state and/or federal charges of narcotics, weapon and explosive trafficking. The DEA also reported some of the organized crime arrestees were illegally in the country and will most likely be deported.

Nofel Noel Suleyman was charged with operating a continuing criminal enterprise a charge that carries a mandatory sentence of 20 years in prison.

Border Patrol makes huge crystal meth drug bust in San Diego

Border Patrol agents at freeway checkpoints thwarted two major drug smuggling attempts and netted a combined seizure of $1.1 million of crystal methamphetamine.

BP agents came across two 19-year-old male United States citizens as they arrived at a San Diego freeway checkpoint. The pair was driving a 2003 Toyota Corolla when agents noticed inconsistent answers to general Border Patrol questions. That behavior landed the men in the secondary inspection center.

“A Border Patrol K-9 team performed a cursory inspection of the vehicle resulting in a positive alert to the driver’s side doors,” said a CBP Press Officer.“Agents searched the vehicle and discovered a hidden compartment inside a speaker box located in the trunk. Inside the compartment, agents found 24 bundles of methamphetamine with a total weight of 30.98 pounds and an estimated street value of $619,600.”

A second freeway checkpoint bust saw Border Patrol agents seize another load of meth worth approximately $470,000 just east San Diego.“Agents discovered 30 bundles totaling 23.5 pounds of the illicit narcotic in a non-factory compartment inside a vehicle’s rear bumper. In total, the two meth seizures are worth nearly $1.1 million on the street,” CBP said.
The suspected smugglers and drugs were detained and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The vehicles were seized by the U.S. Border Patrol.

Between October 1, 2010, and July 31, 2011, San Diego Sector Border Patrol agents have seized more than 66,350 pounds of marijuana, 1,729 pounds of cocaine, and 393 pounds of methamphetamine.

Warrant issued for deported ‘backpack bandit’
A man authorities nicknamed the “backpack bandit,” who snatched necklaces from around women’s necks in downtown Los Angeles, has been charged and a warrant issued for his arrest.

Adan Peralta, 25, has already been deported to Mexico, but Los Angeles police say they want to be ready with an arrest warrant because they expect him to return.

He has been arrested and deported multiple times, most recently in April, said Lt. Paul Vernon of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Since his deportation, detectives located a witness who was able to identify Peralta out of photo lineup, which led to the criminal filing.

3 Illegal Immigrants Arrested in Drug Trafficking Ring

Updated: Tuesday, 23 Aug 2011, 8:31 PM MST
Published : Tuesday, 23 Aug 2011, 8:26 PM MST


AVONDALE - Deputies have busted a drug smuggling ring allegedly run by a group of illegal immigrants.

Three illegal immigrants were arrested in Avondale Monday night. They were identified as Jose Antonio Lucio-Vega, Jesus Joel Rivera-Vizcarra and Miguel Edwardo Leyva-Lopez.

Deputies also seized several AK 47 assault rifles and $200,000 worth of cocaine.

Investigators say the suspects sold drugs to undercover sheriff's deputies.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he will not stop enforcing immigration laws.

"I just bring up the last two days, where we are trying to rescue a hostage, and now we're working undercover to seize a large amount of drugs, and once again you have illegal aliens involved in those crimes. So no one is going to keep telling me illegal aliens don't get involved in crimes in this county."

Investigators say one of the suspects was deported once before for drug and shoplifting charges -- and somehow found himself back here in the United States.

ILLEGAL Throws Her Infant Son Off 4th Floor
ORANGE - A La Habra woman was behind bars Tuesday on suspicion of trying to kill her 7-month-old son by throwing him from the fourth floor of a parking structure at Childrens Hospital of Orange County.
Sonia Hermosillo, 31, was being held without bail at Orange County Jail and was undergoing a medical evaluation, according to Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino.

Her son, whose name was not released, was fighting for his life at a hospital where he was listed in critical condition, Orange police Sgt. Dan Adams said.
Witnesses called 9-1-1 about 6:20 p.m. Monday to report seeing the baby fall from the parking structure at the hospital, 455 S. Main St., the sergeant said.

"During the investigation,

we learned from the La Habra Police Department that a man from La Habra had reported his wife, Sonia Hermosillo, and their 7-month-old son missing," Adams said.
While reviewing surveillance footage from the parking structure, investigators noticed a small SUV that had left the structure just after the incident, he said.

The license plate indicated the SUV was registered to the same home where the La Habra woman and child had been reported missing, and it was being driven by a lone woman, Adams said.

As officials continued their investigation at Childrens Hospital of Orange County shortly after 10 p.m., an Orange police officer spotted the wanted SUV pass by the hospital, police said.

Officers pulled over
the SUV and arrested Hermosillo without a struggle, Adams said. An empty child safety seat was still in the SUV.
Detectives questioned Hermosillo before ultimately arresting her on suspicion of attempted murder of her infant son, Adams said. He declined to discuss a motive in the case.

Rails lining the circumference of the parking structure would have made it impossible for the baby to crawl off the edge by himself, police said.

Amormino said there's an immigration hold on Hermosillo but didn't know her immigration status.

Generally, such a hold or detainer is placed on suspects in custody who are undocumented immigrants.

According to booking records, she was due for arraignment today in the Orange County Central Jail Court.
