Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have arrested a fugitive in North Carolina wanted for allegedly hacking two men to death with a machete in Honduras.
According to WTVD in Raleigh, ICE agents arrested Francisco Escobar-Orellana, 56, an illegal immigrant from Honduras, near his home in Hope Mills.
The killings took place in 1993, WTVD reported. Escobar was charged in Honduras in May 2005, but made his way to the U.S. illegally before he could be detained.
Escobar was booked into the Wake County detention center and remained in custody. He will be extradited to Honduras, where he will face charges.
Officials didn’t immediately know how long Escobar had been in the United States or when he arrived.
An ICE news release explained that the organization was “focused on identifying, arresting and removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws.”
“ICE Fugitive Operations Teams conduct targeted enforcement operations toward these identified threats to public safety. North Carolina residents are safer today thanks to the professionalism and hard work of these dedicated officers,” Enforcement and Removal Operations Atlanta Field Office Director Sean Gallagher said in the release.
It looks like President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal aliens is working. This man was able to hide from his crime for more than 20 years and it’s time he face justice.
The Obama administration apparently didn’t do much to help get illegal criminals like Escobar out of the country, and it’s frightening to think of how many criminals like him are still roaming the streets.
