The current Democratic Party led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as well as allies in the mainstream media, continue to stick their heads in the sand with regard to the real criminal threat posed by some illegal immigrants.
The nation was reminded of that threat once again earlier this month when a pair of illegal immigrant siblings in Michigan pleaded guilty to murder and other charges related to the stabbing death of a co-worker at a dairy farm.
Mexican national siblings kill co-worker
The Port Huron Times-Herald reported that Mexican nationals Francisca Vargas-Castillo and Leobardo Torres-Castillo abruptly accepted a plea deal in the middle of their trial in Sanilac County, Michigan, on May 2.
Both siblings pleaded guilty to felony charges of tampering with evidence and concealing a death, crimes that could net 10- and 5-year sentences, respectively.
Additionally, the sister, Vargas-Castillo, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, which could bring a life sentence. Her brother, Torres-Castillo, pleaded guilty to assault, which could result in a 10-year sentence.
The charges against the pair stemmed from the beating and stabbing death of their 43-year-old co-worker and fellow Mexican national named Bricia Flores-Rivera, whose body was found dumped in a ditch on Sept. 1, 2018. The siblings will be sentenced at a hearing scheduled for June 26.
Murderous siblings in the country illegally
Witnesses described during the trial how Vargas-Castillo and the victim lived together in a shared trailer home with their families. A dispute arose when Vargas-Castillo accused Flores-Rivera of attempting to poison her children and sleep with her husband.
That dispute ended when Vargas-Castillo beat the victim with a stick and then stabbed her to death with a knife.
Vargas-Castillo then enlisted the help of her brother to aid in disposing of the body in a ditch.
Federal immigration officials confirmed that both of the siblings had been residing and working inside the U.S. illegally, though it was unclear when they had first entered the country in illicit fashion.
Democrats’ flawed narrative exposed
Democrats and the liberal media like to pretend that all foreign nationals coming to this country, whether legally or otherwise, are absolute paragons of virtue who would never commit a crime or cause harm to anyone.
That premise is obviously untrue, and this latest case only serves to further undermine the left’s ridiculously false narrative that illegal immigrants pose no real threat to American citizens or fellow migrants, which some most certainly do.
