Illegal Alien Strangles Three-Month-Old Child To Death

The crisis on our Southern border continues to grow, as hundreds of thousands of illegals flood over into Texas every month. There is no way to attain accurate readings on the exact number of migrants due to the fuzzy figure of “gotaways.” We do know that the migrants allegedly seeking asylum are majority military-aged men, some of whom have been caught committing heinous crimes in our country. Melvin Jesus Aquino Enriquez, an illegal alien, was charged with injury to a child causing serious bodily injury in mid-April, but that isn’t the full story.

Enriquez was arrested and taken into custody on April 14th following an investigation after an infant was admitted to a hospital. Investigators determined that Enriquez strangled the infant, according to News Nation. On April 21st the infant was declared dead at the hospital, almost assuredly from the injuries the child incurred from Enriquez. Following the autopsy of the infant, murder charges are likely to be attached to Enriquez. Enriquez is currently being held on a $750,000 bond in the custody of ICE because of his immigration status.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection have no way to determine the backgrounds of illegals they are capturing and releasing upon the general populace. The waves of migrants flooding over the border bring an influx of crime that directly impacts Texas families. Illegals aren’t coming to “escape” their bad situations - if that were true, they wouldn’t be participating in such egregious acts in the first place. We must put the safety of Texans first.

There are a number of reasons why the illegal aliens coming over the southern border are so violent. For many of them, that is all that they know. They haven’t experienced life in Western society and the systems that dish out consequences for bad actions. Many of them were extremely poor and relied on cartels for money, food, protections, and passage to America. As long as the federal government continues to allow our immigration system to be in disarray, we will continue to see cases of domestic violence, murder, drugs, and human trafficking rise in our communities.

The border crisis is one of the easiest issues to solve, but the current administration has no incentive to do so. In fact, they would rather spend money giving room and board to migrants in hopes of securing their votes in the future. Securing the border doesn’t have to be a complicated solution. Enhancing protections and reinstituting the “Remain in Mexico” policy, where migrants must stay in Mexico while the courts review their asylum cases, is a simple yet effective manner to stop the flow. There is no excuse for how many illegal aliens have inflicted harm on American citizens. It is truly shameful that infants are being murdered and the crisis is only growing. How many more Americans have to die before the government steps up?
