ICE HSI and PGPD arrest Maryland man wanted for 30-year-old murder in Texas

Published on April 26th, 2012

The primary goals of our nation's immigration laws can be distilled down into six words:  “Save American lives and American jobs.”

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 area.

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 new employment.
