Earlier today, at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, New York, Josue Portillo(an illegal alien), a member of the Leeward Locos Salvatruchas clique of La Mara Salvatrucha, also known as the MS-13, pleaded guilty to racketeering charges without a plea agreement with the government, relating to his participation in the April 11, 2017 murders of Justin Llivicura, Michael Lopez, Jorge Tigre and Jefferson Villalobos.
“We tricked the victims so they would go into the woods where they would be murdered,” -Josue Portillo, illegal alien.
Josue Portillo, the confessed quadruple murderer that bludgeoned the victims even after they were death, was just 15 years 11 months old when he participated in the brutal premeditated murders…Animals indeed.
According to court filings and statements by the defendant at the guilty plea proceeding, on the evening of April 11, 2017, two female associates of the MS-13 lured five young men, including the four victims, to a community park in Central Islip at the direction of Portillo and other MS-13 members.
The victims were believed to be members of a rival gang who had disrespected the MS-13. Portillo and several MS-13 members and associates met in a wooded area behind the park where they distributed weapons and discussed the plan to kill the victims.
The female MS-13 associates then arrived at the park, led the victims to a wooded area and sent Portillo a text message describing their location. Portillo and the other MS-13 members and associates surrounded the victims and killed Llivicura, Lopez, Tigre and Villalobos using machetes, knives and wooden clubs.
The fifth intended victim escaped. Portillo and his associates dragged the victims’ bodies to a more secluded spot and fled. The victims’ bodies were discovered the following evening…
Portillo is just one of nine others charged in the indictment and the first to plead guilty. According to multiple news outlets, he did not have a plea deal with the U.S. government. In May, President Trump had some of the relatives of the victims invited for a discussion on immigration.
Although Portillo is just 17-years old, he will be tried as an adult. Rightfully so in my opinion.
Another example of why we need tougher immigration enforcement and we must fix the broken Unaccompanied Minor Policy. The country of origin of the illegal alien children should be responsible for these kids, not the U.S. taxpayer.
