ROUNDING UP MEXICO'S MOST WANTED
Representative Judge Ted Poe (TX-02)
It's a big day in the U.S. when we catch someone on our
Most Wanted List.
Shouldn't it be an even bigger day when we catch someone on Mexico's Most
Wanted List? In Ohio, that's right Ohio. It's a long way from our southern
border with Mexico.
Julio Ernesto Cobian-Ariaza is just 27 and this Mexican citizen is
already a career criminal alien. This illegal is wanted back home in Mexico
for his connection to two murders and two more attempted murders. But his
list of offenses here in the U.S. is much longer. He's been convicted of
attempted murders, assault with a firearm and street terrorism, in plain
English--gang activity. We've caught him twice before and sent him home.
First in 1999 when he was just 20. And again in September of 2001. This time
as an aggravated felon at the tender age of 22. Just sneaking back into the
country from Mexico once is a felony punishable by 20 years in prison. So
his laundry list of crimes in the U.S. alone should have him locked up in
the penitentiary for decades. But an even more disturbing part of this story
is Ariaza isn't alone. His arrest is just one of more than 3 thousand gang
members in just a few years.
A crackdown on gangs with foreign born and illegal members
He's among many alien gang members representing almost 400 different
gangs across the United States. People mock our country and say we are the
world's police. But the truth is our open borders make us just that. We
can't clear our own top ten most wanted list but we're making a dent in some
others. These international outlaws are targeting Americans on our own
streets and we'll keep rounding up these murderous illegals until we shut
down our borders. If we could do that we would have a good shot at clearing
at least one name of our own most wanted list.
Jorge Alberto Lopez-Orozco is number 2 on the infamous FBI lineup. Born
in Mexico he's just 30 and he's already accused of brutally murdering his
girlfriend and her 2 young sons. Friends suspect she found out he was
already married with his own children and tried to break it off. The family
went missing for days. Until a few fishing buddies riding ATVs stumbled on
their burned out car and what looked like a charred body. The police ruled
it was actually three bodies. Orozco's girlfriend and her two young sons
ages 2 and 4 were all gunned down. Shot in the head or chest and their
bodies set ablaze. Jorge Alberto Lopez-Orozco is still out there and thanks
to our virtually open borders he could be living on any American street as
And that American street may have been made much more dangerous by Diego
Leon Montoya Sanchez from Colombia also topping our 10
Most Wanted. He's one
of the leaders of the most powerful and violent drug cartels in Colombia and
he's accused of pumping tons of cocaine into the U.S.--tons of cocaine that
could be sold to the same foreign-born gang that Mexico's Most Wanted Julio
Ernesto Cobian-Ariaza was running in when he got caught in Ohio.
The moral of this story is maybe we should stop accepting the world's
most dangerous criminals so we can get back to ours. Seal the borders
protect Americans and let the rest of the world deal with their own
criminals on their own soil. That's just the way it is.
