CBP and Border Patrol capture wanted murderer and child rapist at the border


LAREDO, TX- They were violent fugitives on the run… and they got caught at the border.

According to Breitbart News, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers along with Border Patrol Agents in Texas managed to arrest two wanted fugitives.

Interestingly, the two wanted individuals that were arrested by the agencies were both United States citizens – the agencies just happened to cross paths with these fugitives and enacted the arrests.

In Laredo, Texas, CBP officers were working at the Laredo Port of Entry when they had apprehended Eulises Moreno Molina, according to a statement released by the CBP. Molina attempted to cross into the United States as a pedestrian through the Gateway to the Americas Bridge on January 30th. Yet the 20-year-old didn’t get that far into his journey back into the states.

CBP officers detained the male and performed a biometric verification through law enforcement databases.

One of these databases happened to be the National Crime Information Center, commonly referred to as NCIC.

That’s when authorities confirmed that Molina had an outstanding warrant for homicide out of Walker County, Texas. After the confirmation, CBP officers transported Molina to the Webb County Jail in Laredo, Texas to await extradition.

Port Director Albert Flores of the Laredo Port of Entry stated the following after the arrest of Molina:

“CBP officers continue to proficiently identify fugitives with outstanding felony warrants. Our officers are fully committed to safeguarding the homeland and keeping our communities safe.”

Just one day later in Del Rio, Texas, Border Patrol agents that were assigned to the Comstock Station managed to identify and arrest an active fugitive.

While agents were conducting checkpoint operations, they had come across a 51-year-old United States citizen with an outstanding warrant stemming from Tennessee. The warrant was issued after the individual had failed to appear in court to face charges for felony rape of a child and aggravated sexual battery.

Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz of the Del Rio Sector made the following statement about the subject’s arrest:

“Our checkpoint operations continue to be a vital part of securing our nation’s borders within Del Rio Sector. In this case, agents identified a man that could potentially have caused great harm to our community.”

Another amazing job well done by the Del Rio Sector agents – it’s no wonder that the President honored Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz at the State of the Union recently.

He’s served with the Border Patrol since May of 1991 – nearly 30 years of helping protect our nation’s borders.

President Trump spoke fondly of Chief Patrol Agent Ortiz at the State of the Union, saying the following:

“Last year, I traveled to Texas and met Raul Ortiz. Over the last 24 months, his team has seized more than 200,000 pounds of narcotics, arrested more than 3,000 human smugglers and arrested more than 2,000 migrants.” 

The president then invited Chief Patrol Agent Ortiz, who was sitting behind Trump and Melania during the address, to stand and be recognized. The president then expressed the widely felt gratitude of his service to the country:

“A grateful nation thanks you and all of the heroes of Border Patrol and ICE. Thank you very much.” 

Even CNN’s Chris Cuomo couldn’t deny the work that Chief Patrol Agent Ortiz deals with on a day to day basis, when the CNN host rode along with him at the southern border.

During Cuomo’s ride-along that took place in early 2019, Chief Patrol Agent Ortiz explained that there was more than just a border crisis. In his words, he described the root of the problem as a “policy crisis”. With nearly three decades in the Border Patrol, he stated that until the political jockeying comes to an end, they’ll continue to have issues at the border.

Graphic: Bodies of drug runners, human traffickers discarded along southern border

Warning: The following story contains graphic images. Viewer discretion is advised.

Mexico – A gruesome discovery was made this week in the border city of Miguel Aleman. Officials reportedly found the bodies of four deceased members of the Gulf Cartel tossed along the side of the road near a funeral home after they had allegedly been killed in a violent clash with a rival cartel. 

According to Breitbart News, who originally published the disturbing images, all four bodies exhibited fatal gunshot wounds.

They say the two cartel got into the bloody battle just across the border of Texas. Police were called to the scene to investigate the bodies. 

According to reports, members of the Gulf Cartel battled with the Cartel Del Noreste in a violent clash. The two rival groups are routinely involved in the world of drug smuggling and human trafficking.

In another violent brawl between the cartels, officials say that five CDN fighters were killed after the armored truck that they were in was set on fire. That clash reportedly took place in Dr. Coss, Nuevo Leon, which sits approximately 50 miles from U.S. territory. 

Local law enforcement officials did not respond to that encounter, leaving military personnel to clean up the scrap long after it had ended. 

You can see additional images of the graphic scene on Breitbart’s article here. 

According to Fox News, a police officer in Mexico was bound by two armed individuals while they robbed the police station. Reports indicate that there was a total of 10 guns, a number of radios, and laptops stolen from the station, according to El Universal.

Raciel Perez Cruz, who is the morenista of Tlalnepantla, (the morenista is the head of the central left-wing group known as the Moristic) requested that the local prosecutor begin investigating and eventually detain those involved with the robbery.


(The following statements have been translated from Spanish to English.)

Municipal authorities reported the following on the matter:

“The General Public Security Commission of Tlalnepantla has provided the state agency with all the data it has catalogued on the events that occurred this morning, when two armed suspects entered the station, threatened the police – they in turn stole weapons, nine radios, and laptops, which were already low in stock.”

The statement continued, debunking the notion that some army had stormed the police station during the crime:

“This was committed by two individuals, not by some armed faction as implied elsewhere in the media. The Commissioner is conducting an internal investigation to see if there was any involvement by officials within the police station.”

At this time the types of weapons that were stolen haven’t been noted, but it’s possible that they were standard issue pistols as most police officers within Mexico are issued those.

While it’s often a bit of a joke for those inside and outside of Mexico, internal department corruption is something that has to be investigated frequently in cases like this. Just last year an entire police force stemming from Madera, Chihuahua was arrested on August 15th.

The state of Chihuahua Attorney General’s Office reported that they’d engaged in a joint operation with state and federal agencies to tackle corruption with the northern Mexico state.

A total of 15 officials from the Madera police force were arrested in the August effort, which also included the police commander as well.

According to the Excelsior, the police commander had been providing safe passage as well as protection to drug cartels in the area. That safe passage provided by the local police force also included obstructing local authorities from hampering the trafficking.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that when members from the state and federal agencies closed in on the corrupt police force, that they were met with hostility.

The police commander from the corrupt agency held operatives from the State Security Commission and the State Investigation Agency at gun point when they’d realized they were about to be busted. Luckily, they police chief was disarmed quickly and taken into custody.

Sadly, this is just an all too common scenario in Mexico’s police forces.

As in 2018, the Ministry of Public Security of the State of Puebla had a press release detailing that 205 police officers had to be disarmed due to possible corruption. After the disarmament commenced, 113 officers were unable to be located and were presumed to have gone on the run.

With the uptick in kidnappings, assaults and homicide – there was evidence linking these crimes to the police force inside the municipality of Tehuacán in the state of Puebla.

Of course, of the 205 officers disarmed in that effort, not everyone was alleged to have been corrupt.

There were at least 20 officers from the roundup that were simply never trained properly to be police officers within the municipality.

Simply stated, the examples of corruption in Mexico can go on and on, especially when referring to their police forces in various states. A word to the wise, genuinely savvy vacationers tend to avoid travel to Mexico.

In the meantime, in January, Law Enforcement Today reported on the murder spree that left 48 Mexican citizens dead, including a pregnant woman, an elderly woman, and a 6-year old boy.  No target is off limits for these extremely violent drug peddlers.

Earlier in the month, 2 cars filled with 10 musicians were found charred in a city called Chilapa, which is about 200 miles south of Mexico City.  The musicians, of the Sensación Musical group, had performed Friday evening. 

They were all members of the Nahuas indigenous group and were ambushed on their way back to their hometown of Alcozacán.


The vehicles were charred to the point where the 10 occupants were unrecognizable.  One vehicle was left on the highway, and the other was pushed down into a nearby ravine.  No shell casings were found nearby, suggesting the men were burned to death.  The victims were all between the ages of 15 and 42.

Twenty children were left fatherless from the murders.

The murders were said to be compliments of Los Ardillos cartel, who has been known to attack indigenous people in that area.  

Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has openly chosen to allow cartels to run rampant in his country rather than take them on.  His policy of “abrazos, no balazos,” or hugs, not bullets, has been doing wonders for the cartels, allowing them to continue their crime sprees and keep local residents in constant fear of their attacks.

Obrador has declined US President Trump’s repeated offers to assist Mexico with their cartel problems.
