Customs officials thought the 19-year-old seemed a little nervous as he was processed through customs as an arrival. Then they took a look at the video he had on his phone.
The unidentified Spanish citizen flew into Los Angeles from Mexico City on Monday but Customs and Border Protection didn’t release a statement until Thursday. The suspect was “denied entry and escorted back to Mexico City by the FBI and border protection officials,” Associated Press reports.
He was coming in allegedly as a tourist but he didn’t have a return ticket. One of the border guards described him as “nervous and fidgety,” according to the statement. Then they found “a short video on his cellphone showing him kicking an unresponsive person.”
When they asked him about it, he came clean. “The passenger told the CBP officers that prior to flying to the United States he had caught the subject with his girlfriend, hit him over the head with an object, and kicked him when he was on the ground. The passenger further stated that he had placed the body in the trunk of a vehicle.”
U.S. officials notified the Mexican Federales, who then found body, still in the trunk of the car at the crime scene. The suspect was held overnight and shipped back to Mexico on Tuesday for prosecution.
And liberals continue to cry that we shouldn’t have any kind of borders. Just let anyone wander into the country that feels like they want to be an American.
