Victims of Illegal Immigration – A Collection of Essays
Hat Tip: Dick Manasseri
We’re constantly lectured in the Main-stream Media that illegal aliens are just doing the jobs Americans won’t do and that our economy would collapse without them. News stories nearly always present illegals as sympathetic victims of American intolerance. The reality is much more complicated, however.
Local news stories, seldom publicized nationally, reveal a slew of horrible crimes committed by illegal aliens. This story in Maryland, for example, is of a pair of illegal alien lawn workers who were treated kindly by an elderly lady who employed them. In gratitude, they killed her, in a horrific manner.
It all started with Ramon Alvarado and his cousin Jose Alvarado, both from El Salvador, who had been allegedly living in the United States for a decade. Not to worry, Immigration and Customs Enforcement [sic] had issued detainers on the cousins and Jose’s wife, meaning there was a possibility of them being deported eventually. It didn’t happen soon enough, though, to prevent this murder. (It doesn’t help that Maryland has “sanctuary cities” and grants driver’s licenses to illegals.)
The two men already had criminal records in Maryland – Jose for check fraud and Ramon for driving without a license or registration. These sorts of crimes didn’t lead to deportation.
Lila Meizell, an 83-year-old resident of Wheaton, Maryland, hired the cousins to do yard work for her for two years. Ms. Meizell was pleased with the yard work, according to her daughter. Besides paying them, she gave them food, soft drinks, and tips.
So why did they kill their kindly employer? After being paid, the cousins decided to milk some more money out of her. Jose took the check for $75 and added two zeros to the number. That way they were able to cash it for $7500. Then Jose and Ramon decided to kill Lila to cover up the fraud. The cousins broke into Lila’s home, where Ramon grabbed her and smashed her head. While still alive, Lila was doused with gasoline and her body set ablaze. When emergency personnel arrived it was too late. (Two police officers and a firefighter were also injured while responding to the fire.)
The cousins were arrested, tried, and sentenced. Since Ramon did more of the dirty work, he got two consecutive life terms. The judge said to Ramon, “The inhumane manner you chose to exterminate a lady well into the autumn years of her life strongly suggests that you are sadistic.” Strongly suggests? There is no doubt about it. Jose got a life sentence without parole.
Those murderers never should have been in our country in the first place, or after having entered, they should have been deported long ago.
