The Midwest is no stranger to immigrant violence.
Many have lost their lives in the aftermath of gang violence or crimes committed by illegals.
But one breaking news story proves the devastating reality behind immigration violence.
A Life Lost Too Soon.
A two year old just lost his life.
A gang leader ordered gunfire during a birthday party.
The leader of the Maniac Latin Disciples gang, Alexander Valera, led the Charge.
The birthday party was being held in the vicinity of the gangs terrioty.
And a fight broke out during the party.
Some of the party goers fought with members of the gang.
Valera ordered gunfire.
Unknowingly, two-year old Julien Gonzalez was in the alley.
He was scooped up by an 18- year-old trying to protect him.
The 18-year-old was shot once in the back and once in the leg.
But Julien died an hour later.
The assistant state attorney Jamie Santini reported:
“Varela yelled out to his fellow gang members, ‘Bust, bust, bust,’ which is an order for the armed gang member to fire his gun. Witnesses began to run and take cover. Seconds after making the command to shoot … gunshots were fired from a single gun that had an attached laser sight that was shining a red laser light.”
Gang Violence Gone Too Far.
Deputy Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan has no tolerance for gangs.
Especially after this senseless violence.
“Varela] is a gang member and he thinks he owns the block. So he’s going to come down there and insert himself into the argument. Like, ‘I don’t want you arguing on my block. This is my territory….This is a reprehensible example of the culture that we need to change. We have civil disputes that are constantly being settled by pulling the trigger.”
Chicago violence is now one of the worst in the country.
The death toll in 2018 so far has reached 448.
And the number of shootings year to date is a stunning 2,467.
With this senseless violence, it was reported earlier this month that the Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, is not seeking re-election for a third term.
An Unforgivable Crime.
The shooting happened earlier this month, but Valera is just now being sentenced.
He faced charges of assault and battery, attempted murder, and charges of murder.
Valera ordered the gunfire as he was upset the fight broke out on “his block.”
But his aggressive actions left many injured, and took a life too soon.
Valera tried to run but was stopped by police after a call that a man was sitting in a truck behind a gas station that looked like it had been involved in a shooting.
Valera was found behind the wheel of the truck, and was arrested on the charge of unlawful use of a weapon after a knife was found on the driver’s seat.
But he was released the next day.
Murder Charges Weeks Later
Weeks later, Valera was arrested on murder charges. He is being held without bail.
Valera has an extensive arrest record dating back to 2009, including charges of battery and child endangerment.
With a caravan of illegal immigrants coming towards our country, more individuals like Valera are sure to come through the border.
One migrant within the caravan had something to say that terrify us all.
While conservatives want to secure our border against illegal immigrants we know nothing about, the left wants to give aid to them dangerous criminals traveling with this caravan aid.
