An illegal immigraant committed a horrific crime in North Carolina earlier this week. Or as Barack Obama would call him, a “dreamer.”
An 18-year-old Honduran national accused of decapitating his 35-year-old mother in North Carolina was an illegal immigrant, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials told Fox 46 Charlotte Tuesday.
ICE issued a detainer for Oliver Funes-Machado Tuesday after he was charged with first-degree murder the previous day. When police officers responded to a call in Franklin County, they saw Funes-Machado exiting a home carrying his mother’s head in one hand and holding what “looked to be a large butcher knife” in the other hand, Sheriff Kent Winstead said. When the officers entered the home, they discovered the remainder of Yesenia Funes Beatriz Machado’s body inside.
“Officers encountered the suspect holding a knife and, as reported, also holding his mother’s head in the other arm,” Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Chief of Staff Terry Wright told ABC 11. “It’s tough for the deputies. It’s tough for the communities. We will be offering any of them assistance who just may need it because it was a horrific scene that first responders had to respond to.”
Also present in the home were two young siblings, though neither had been harmed. Another child was at school when the decapitation occurred.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Build. The. Wall.
