Illegal immigrant arrested for rape and murder in US

Authorities in Oklahoma, USA, arrested a 23-year-old illegal immigrant from El Salvador last Friday. He was accused of raping and murdering a mother of five in the country.

According to investigations by the American government, Victor Antonio Martinez Hernandez entered the country irregularly in February 2023, shortly after murdering a young woman in El Salvador, in January of that year.

After the murder in his country of origin, US foreign intelligence began to list him among dangerous people wanted in the world. Hernandez is suspected of having ties to Salvadoran gangs.

“Victor Hernandez did not come here to improve life for himself or his family. He came here to escape the crime he committed in El Salvador. He came here and murdered Rachel and, God willing, no one else,” Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said.

American Rachel Morin, mother of five, was brutally murdered on a trail last year, a death for which the immigrant is responsible.

Investigators also linked Hernandez to another crime using DNA evidence. According to US police, he broke into a house in Los Angeles last year, where he allegedly attacked a 9-year-old girl.

The US has faced a migration crisis since Joe Biden became president, due to the application of policies that increased the arrival of foreigners across the borders, a measure that was greatly supported by his candidate in order to obtain support from Democrats.

However, at the beginning of the month, the White House announced a new executive order that aims to curb the arrival of new immigrants across the border with Mexico, in the president’s attempt to remain in power in November.
