“Secure Communities enhances public safety by enabling ICE to identify and remove criminal aliens more efficiently and effectively from the United States,” said Secure Communities Acting Assistant Director Marc Rapp.

Prior to the implementation of Secure Communities, fingerprints taken of individuals charged with a crime and booked into state or local custody were checked for criminal history information against the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) criminal history records. Once it is activated in a jurisdiction, the fingerprints that jurisdiction submits to DOJ’s biometric system to check for criminal history records are also automatically sent to DHS’ biometric system to check against its immigration law enforcement records. When a match is discovered, ICE evaluates the specific case to determine the individual’s immigration status and takes appropriate enforcement action.

ICE prioritizes removing criminal aliens convicted of the most serious crimes such as major drug offenses, murder, rape and kidnapping. ICE also gives high priority to other threats to public safety, such as aliens with known gang affiliations, drunk driving arrests or fugitives, or those who frequently try to game the immigration system.

More Pot-Growing Mexican Invaders Arrested

Two from Mexico arrested in Humboldt County marijuana bust

Humboldt County Sheriff's deputies arrested two men from Mexico and seized 5,495 marijuana plants early Friday at an outdoor garden site about 3 miles outside of Bridgeville.

According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies entered the site at 6:30 a.m. east of Bridgeville toward Showers Pass and located a campsite and a tent in the middle of a marijuana garden.

Deputies surrounded the tent and arrested two men, who were sleeping in the tent with a loaded .22-caliber rifle, according to the Sheriff's office.

Deputies identified the men as Miguel Don Juan Herandez, 29, and Jose Maria Valencia-Baez, 26. The Sheriff's Office said both men are from Mexico and are in the country illegally. They were taken to the Humboldt County jail and booked for cultivation and possession for sales of marijuana and with being armed in the commission of a felony. Both subjects had an immigration hold placed on them.

Historic City News was notified by Officer Mark Samson that St. Augustine Police have arrested an illegal alien from Nicaragua after he attacked and sexually assaulted a woman — choking and beating her until she was rendered unconscious.
According to police, Edgar Antonio Talavera-Borges, a 34 year-old illegal whose address is unknown, attacked a patron after she left the Gigglin’ Gator on King Street in St. Augustine.

“The victim left the Gigglin’ Gator at closing time to make a phone call,” Samson told Historic City News.“When she finished the call, Talavera- Borges grabbed her; placing his hand over her mouth.”

Officers Michael Linksy and Michal Ochkie reported that Talavera- Borges dragged the victim into the woods, behind the Gigglin’ Gator, and then tore her clothes off.

Police say that the more the victim tried to scream, the more Talavera- Borges would hit her in the face or bite her as he was sexually assaulting her. At the point the victim was rendered unconscious, Talavera- Borges fled the scene.

Once the victim regained consciousness, she ran, naked, to the area of the post office where she was able to call for help. When police arrived, they sent the victim to Flagler Hospital for medical treatment and evaluation.

Police found the victim’s clothes and a motel key in the area behind the bar; they were able to match the key to a motel room at the Budget Inn on Anastasia Boulevard.

Officers Linksy and Ochkie located Talavera- Borges at the motel and arrested him on charges of Aggravated Battery — a second degree felony. After his first appearance hearing, bond was set at $500,000.00.

Detectives Charles Simpson and Cecilia Aiple questioned the victim the next day regarding the alleged sexual battery. Following that interview, Talavera- Borges was charges with the additional crime — a life felony on which no bond has been allowed.

Talavera- Borges has remained in custody at the St. Johns County Detention facility since June 10th; Immigration and Customs enforcement was notified and have placed an additional hold.

Hamilton illegal to face trial for kidnapping, duct taping neice

The illegal alien who never showed up to answer the charges of kidnapping four years ago will have a much tougher time skipping out of this time.

Sergio Sarceno is a 31-year-old Guatemalan who is accused of terrorizing his 17-year-old niece, with whom he lived in Hamilton.

Yesterday, a Mercer County grand jury indicted Sarceno on charges he taped and robbed the girl of $400 while holding her captive at knifepoint, then tying her up and drive around the county, according to Assistant Prosecutor Skylar Weissman.

Weissman didn’t say how the victim managed to get away from her captor.

Sarceno, who has aliases of Edwin Garcia and Sergio Cano, was charged with kidnapping, criminal restraint, terroristic threats, exhibition of a simulated government document, theft by unlawful taking, and weapons offenses for the alleged incident, according to Casey DeBlasio, spokesperson for the prosecutor’s office.

Saucedo trial date delayed

Mario Alberto Saucedo, the man accused of hitting and killing 10-year-old Anthony Moore as he crossed the street to board his school bus in Minneola last month, was scheduled for an arraignment Monday morning.

The case was never heard and was delayed until 8:30 a.m. on June 27 per a request by the State Attorney's Office.

That move marks the second time a court date has been continued in this case, something that State Attorney's Office Division Supervisor Walter Forgie said is not uncommon at all.

"We are still reviewing the case and are in the process of making a determination as it relates to our filing decision," Forgie said, adding that the review may consist of sifting through case files, arrest reports and other supporting documents

Originally, Saucedos' arraignment was scheduled for June 6 and continued until June 20.

According to the Lake County Clerk of the Courts website, Saucedo's attorney entered a written plea of not guilty on May 16.

Norma Vera-Nolasco, two others, plead guilty in drunken hit & run that killed valet Jose Medina

In January, Rockstar Lounge valet Jose Medina was killed in a hit-and-run that led to four arrests -- Norma Vera-Nolasko, the driver, who was nabbed at the Phoenix airport just before boarding a flight to Mexico, and three accused conspirators, who engaged in a coverup and helped her flee. Now, three of the four have pleaded guilty -- including Vera-Nolasko, who was allegedly so drunk she didn't realize she'd run over Medina.

According to Vera-Nolasco's arrest affidavit (on view below, along with three probable cause statements), she told Eliu Montes-Garcia -- the first person busted in the case, and the only one to plead not guilty -- that she thought she'd hit something on Lincoln while behind the wheel of her white pickup. After all, her side mirror was dangling from the side of the vehicle. But that wasn't the only evidence of a crash. Montes-Garcia told cops the truck also had fresh damage on the front and the side. He added that Vera-Nolasco, who'd been cited in 2007 and 2008 for driving without a license or insurance, sounded drunk during the conversation.

How reliable is this account? Montes-Garcia has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident, vehicular homicide and two criminal accessory counts -- suggesting that the Denver District Attorney's Office believes he was present at the crash.

Shortly thereafter, another witness told cops, Vera-Nolasco saw news coverage of Medina's death at the spot where the suspected hit had taken place. At that point, Montes-Garcia told cops, she was scared -- fear likely compounded by the fact that she was in the United States illegally, as was Montes-Garcia. He'd been busted in 2007 for drug distribution and various driving sins, and after being sentenced to nine months in prison, he was deported to Mexico. Two months later, in March 2008, he was caught trying to reenter the country and promptly sent back. But apparently, the third time was the charm.

On Tuesday, three men physically assaulted two Border Patrol agents after crossing the border illegally near San Diego.
One agent was kicked in the face, and transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
One of the illegal aliens, identified as Jose Alfredo Yanez, 40, ran back through a hole in the border fence and began throwing rocks. He was about to throw a large slab of concrete, when the agent shot him.
According to Border Patrol spokesman Steven Pitts, the agent fired multiple shots at Yanez who fell back into Mexico and died from his wounds.
Another one of the illegal crossers was arrested, while another escaped successfully back into Mexico.
The incident occurred around 7:30 p.m.
On Wednesday, Kevin Keenan, executive director of the San Diego and Imperial counties chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union questioned the use of lethal force “to stop rock throwers.”

On Wednesday, Kevin Keenan, executive director of the San Diego and Imperial counties chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union questioned the use of lethal force “to stop rock throwers.”
Keenan said:“It doesn't meet the most basic humanitarian standards when someone is fleeing and doesn't pose a threat to the safety of others.”
According to the U.S. Justice Department’s National Drug Threat Assessment for 2010, there are three Border Patrol agents assaulted every day at or near the Mexican border.
The following excerpt appears in the report:“Assaults against U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) agents increased 46 percent from 752 incidents in FY2006 to 1,097 incidents in FY 2008.”
“Contributing most to this increase were rocking assaults, which rose 77 percent from 435 incidents in FY2006 to 769 incidents in FY2008,” said the assessment.“A ‘rocking assault,’ is defined as the throwing of rocks at Border Patrol agents by drug or alien smugglers with the intent of threatening or causing physical harm to the agent.”

Two Mexican citizens accused of holding three immigrants captive at a Rancho Cucamonga home pleaded not guilty Wednesday to criminal charges.

Jose DeJesus Horta Gutterrez, 34, and Leonardo Rios Sanchez, 24, entered their pleas in West Valley Superior Court.

Alvaro Barajas, 38, was also charged in the case and was expected to be arraigned Wednesday, but information about his court appearance was unavailable.

Prosecutors allege the men held captive three illegal immigrants from Mexico who paid between $2,000 and $3,000 for assistance crossing the border.

The defendants were arrested Friday after one of the immigrants used a cellphone to call 9-1-1, according to a San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman.

The defendants remained jailed Wednesday in lieu of $2.5 million at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.

Prosecutors charged each man Tuesday with three counts of kidnapping for ransom and three counts of false imprisonment by violence.

Illegal Immigrant Faces Child-Luring Charges – Williamsport police have charged a Hispanic male with luring a 12-year-old girl into his truck while it was parked across from the YMCA yesterday. Officer Marlin Smith II was dispatched to the parking lot across from the building in the 300 block of Elmira Street shortly after 10 p.m. on June 23, where he spoke with Lucinda Campbell and her 12-year-old daughter.

Campbell had observed her daughter in a truck with a Hispanic man in his twenties, Smith said. Campbell’s daughter had seen the man before and knew where he lived, and had waved to him. The man, Adrian Arriaga Castro, of Houston Texas, pulled up to the daughter in his truck and opened the passenger’s side door and gestured for her to get in. The girl entered the vehicle and stated that Castro began to talk to her and called her “pretty,” then began to rub her arm. She exited the truck as her mother arrived and Castro ran in the direction of 345 West Third Street.

Smith arrived at the apartment building to investigate; a Hispanic male approached officers outside of the building. The daughter pointed at Castro and police confirmed his identity via his Mexican identification cards; Castro was taken into custody and faces one misdemeanor charge of luring a child into a motor vehicle and one summary charge of harassment.

Additionally, it was discovered that Castro is a Mexican national and has no papers to prove that he is in this country legally, Smith said.

“Because of this police investigation, 16 illegal immigrants were detained by I.C.E. officers from the Department of Homeland Security,” Williamsport Bureau of Police Captain Raymond O. Kontz III said.

“All of these illegals were rooming at 345 West Third Street and 309 Elmira St and working for GPX Surveyor, a gas company originating from Houston Texas,” Kontz said. Castro was taken to the Lycoming County Prison.

More details released in deadly Plano shooting

Recently released information sheds more light on the murder of 50-year-old Ismael Torres of Plano.

Edgar Alberto Romo, 20, was charged June 18 with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Court documents show he was related to Torres and a second victim found shot at the scene.

Plano police officers responded to the shooting just before 6 p.m. on June 17 in the 800 block of 19th Street. There, they found Ismael Torres' deceased body in the living room and a young woman on the couch with a gunshot wound to her head.

Despite the injury, Gabriella Torres was able to tell police it was her stepbrother, Romo, who shot her. Ismael was Romo's stepfather.

It is unclear why Romo allegedly targeted the family members, but cellphone records show Romo called his stepsister approximately 13 minutes before 911 dispatchers were alerted of the shooting.

Gabriella Torres was taken to Medical Center of Plano with life-threatening injuries. The hospital could not confirm if she was still in critical condition.

Police tracked Romo to a hotel room in Dallas hours after the shooting. A search warrant shows investigators recovered some clothing, a knife and $800, but a handgun was not found at the crime scene or in the hotel room.
