Suspected Venezuelan illegals found with guns and drugs squatting in Bronx basement with 7-year-old

Be it outbreaks of measles once thought eradicated in the United States or an influx of crime, it seems Americans — and their children — will have to learn the hard way that wide open borders have perils.

An estimated 8-10 million illegal immigrants from around the world have come across our southern border with Mexico since President Biden took office, with many coming from third-world countries. There is plenty of talk of countries like Venezuela emptying their jails and insane asylums, dumping their problems on America.

In New York City, a group of suspected migrants squatting in a Bronx home were arrested after being found with guns and drugs — a 7-year-old child was also found in the home., according to ABC 7 New York.

Police received a call about a man with a gun just steps away from a school and they chased Hector Desousa Villata into the home, ABC 7 reported. Villata, who is believed to be from Venezuela, was arrested along with seven other suspected migrants. Javier Alborno, 22, tried to flee with a weapon but was soon arrested.

A search warrant resulted in the recovery of two more loaded guns, three loaded extended magazines, ammunition, and a bag of ketamine mixed with cocaine.

“Two of the people with the guns had open cases, one for an attempted murder in Yonkers, and one walking around with an open gun indictment, walking around,” NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell said.

A neighbor told the ABC affiliate the group had been squatting for some time.

“They’re squatters and the owner has been trying to get them out of the apartment for the longest period of time,” said neighbor Alfred Munoz. “I think he has a court date set, apparently because they’re squatters for more than 30 days….. they came, they were a disruptive force mainly because there were a lot of them. You didn’t know who was staying, not staying there, and the owner of the building had a hell of a time trying to get them out.”

Villata, 24, and the others were charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of controlled substance and acting in a manner injurious to a child.

All of the men, except for two, were released without bail. This IS New York, after all.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on X:
