As growing waves of migrants make their way to the southern border – seemingly with the tacit approval of the current administration – the often deadly consequences of unchecked, illegal immigration continue to wreak havoc in communities across the country.
One of the latest examples of criminal violence allegedly committed at the hands of illegal immigrants can be seen in the arrest of two undocumented Guatemalan brothers living in Arkansas who are now charged with fatally stabbing a 32-year-old man earlier this month and face the possibility of life imprisonment, as the Washington Examiner reports.
According to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Gaspar Gaspar Andres, 36, was arrested Monday morning, and his brother, Pascual Gaspar Andres, 26, was taken into police custody on Tuesday, with both men now facing charges of first-degree murder. The siblings were held without bail and were set for an appearance in Garland County District Court later in the week.
The charges stem from an incident in Hot Springs earlier this month when officers were called to a residence at which a fight had reportedly erupted and in which a man had been injured.
Upon entering the premises, police found a man, later determined to be Miguel Ruiz Ruiz, lying on the bathroom floor surrounded by blood, only to be pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
An eyewitness at the scene identified men she knew only as “Paco” and “Paco’s brother” as the individuals who were involved in the altercation with Ruiz, also declaring that the two men were the only ones to exit the residence following the melee.
After the witness and her boyfriend used Facebook to confirm the names of the men they believe they saw at the scene, they provided details to police who ultimately verified their identities and issued arrest warrants. Gaspar Andres reported to police voluntarily on Monday, while his brother was not detained until the next day.
According to the Democrat Gazette, Gaspar Andres did not have any prior criminal record besides routine traffic violations, and Pascual Andres had no previous criminal infractions at the time of arrest. Now, however, both are facing charges that have the potential to put them in prison for the rest of their lives.
Now that the Biden administration has effectively reinstated the so-called “catch and release” policy for illegal immigrants, and countless undocumented individuals are now poised to disperse to all corners of the country, it seems all but certain that violent crimes committed by those already here unlawfully will only increase.
