A foreigner who entered illegally pretended to be a child so that the authorities would release him in the country; the Biden administration, which is implementing policies of not deporting minors or constituted families, transferred him on secret flights from the border to Florida. Months later, he allegedly committed murder by stabbing the man who housed him.
A New York Post report revealed the case of a 24-year-old Honduran immigrant called Yery Noel Medina Ulloa who pretended to be a minor because he suffers from dwarfism, in order to be quickly released into the country and was arrested last October 7 in Jacksonville.
According to the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, the foreigner who pretended to be a child was on the Biden flights that move migrant minors through the country secretly and in the darkness of the early morning hours.
“That individual, who was murdered, was, in fact, murdered by an illegal alien who was on one of Biden’s midnight flights, unannounced, no notice, no support for the state, no ability for us to veto it ahead of time,” the governor said.
DeSantis said his administration was looking at ways to go after the contractors responsible for operating the flights, including banning them from state contracts, taxing them and denying them access to the Florida market.
Representative Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL) also reacted to the event and, as a migrant and Latina in the United States, called what is happening with illegal migration and Biden’s policies “shameful”.
“It’s very embarrassing that this is happening… no one really asks us, the brown community, the representatives of the Latinos in this country, how do we feel about this? And I’m going to tell you that this is extremely embarrassing because do you know where those people wind up at? In our barriers, in neighborhoods and we do not know if those people are child sex traffickers, if they’re drug dealers”, she pointed out to Fox News.
Florida sues Biden over open borders policy
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is already suing the Biden administration over its “catch and release” policy. Sources confirmed to the Post that his office is also investigating whether Ulloa arrived in Jacksonville on one of the clandestine flights.
“This horrific crime is the latest example of how unfettered illegal migration costs Floridians’ lives,” DeSantis’ office told the newspaper.
“If not for the Biden Administration’s unlawful ‘catch and release’ policy, Mr. Cuellar would still be alive today,” it added.
“Governor DeSantis is committed to doing everything in his power to keep Floridians safe. But as long as the Biden Administration persists in refusing to enforce our country’s immigration laws, Americans are at needless risk,” the governor’s office said.
