Illegal Deported 2 Years Ago Arrested in Murder of Store Clerk in Houston


An illegal immigrant, who was back in the country after being deported in 2016, is being charged in the murder of a convenience store clerk during an armed robbery in Houston.

Jose Bonilla-Ortiz, 18, was arrested on Saturday in the fatal, Nov. 10 shooting of 48-year-old Faruk Bhuiya, according to local KTRK-TV.

Bonilla-Ortiz was caught on surveillance video entering the convenience store with another unidentified man, the station reported.

Bonilla-Ortiz and Bhuiya struggled over a security door that the Bhuiya tried to close, according to prosecutors.

Then, Bonilla-Ortiz fired once and struck Bhuiya in the face, who then died at the scene.

Bhuiya’s widow, Phyllis Bhuiya, offered her sympathy for the suspect’s mother, according to The Houston Chronicle.

“I feel bad for this boy’s mother. His life is ruined. Ruined for nothing, absolutely nothing,” Bhuiya said.

Is it time to end illegal immigration?

However, Bhuiya wants Bonilla-Ortiz to pay for the crime.

“I want him punished for what he did. He didn’t just take my husband. He took someone’s son, someone’s stepfather,” she said. “He wasn’t just my husband. He was a lot of things to a lot of people.”

Bonilla-Ortiz, who is being held at a $250,000 bond, was previously deported two years ago, according to the Chronicle.

He is originally from Honduras, KTRK reported.

Yet he was back in the country, to allegedly kill a man who was also an immigrant to the United States — from Bangladesh.

While not all illegal immigrants are violent criminals, it’s undeniable that this senseless tragedy could’ve been avoided with proper immigration control.

There is absolutely no reason to be permissive toward illegal immigration, especially when some of them are bound to be violent.

This isn’t the only tragedy that could have been avoidable with proper immigration policy.

On Sunday, a police officer was shot at by an illegal immigrant in Arkansas during a traffic stop. Thankfully, he survived, but that’s not the case for many other victims.

Previously, President Donald Trump came under fire from the left-wing establishment media for a campaign ad showing an illegal immigrant bragging about murdering two police officers.

“Who else will Democrats let in?” the ad asked.

After every single tragedy, Democrats remain unconcerned about who illegally enters our country.

It’s time to stop the madness and take control of our borders.
