Fransico Escobar-Orellana is a 56 year old illegal alien from Honduras. He was arrested Tuesday morning near his home in Hope Mills. He had been arrested in North Carolina in July 2011 for driving under the influence. He should not have been released at the time because Honduras had filed an arrest warrant for him in 2005.
From ICE Press Release on Daily Caller:
“Mr. Escobar is wanted in Honduras pursuant to a May 2005 arrest warrant for allegedly hacking two men to death with a machete at a liquor store in 1993. Mr. Escobar subsequently unlawfully entered the United States at an unknown time/place.”
He was captured by an Atlanta-based Fugitive Operations Team assigned to ICE. He would still be out on the streets under the lenient pro-immigration policies of the former Obama Administration.
“The Donald Trump administration has tasked the agency with taking a more aggressive approach to apprehending criminal aliens than did the Obama administration. Escobar was booked into the Wake County detention center and remains in custody. He now has an ICE detainer against him and will be extradited back to Honduras, where he will face charges for the murders.”
