    The ‘migrant influencer’ encouraging others to invade the US and squat the homes of citizens skipped out on authorities shortly after arriving in the country and is now on the run from immigration officials, The Post can reveal. Venezuelan national Leonel Moreno crossed the southern border illegally in April 2022 at Eagle Pass, Texas, and was enrolled in the Alternatives to Detention program, which allows federal authorities to track migrants either using ankle monitors or other technology. However, Moreno didn’t follow the rules and is now listed as an “absconder” from the program, according to internal ICE documents seen by...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have arrested a viral TikToker who attracted notoriety through a video advocating that illegals use squatter's rights to effectively take over American homes, Fox News reported, citing an "ICE official." Agents with the Detroit field office reportedly arrested Leonel Moreno in Gahanna, Ohio. An ICE spokesperson told Just the News on Thursday that "Leonel Moreno is an unlawfully present Venezuelan non-citizen, who illegally entered the country April 23, 2022. Moreno was placed into the ATD [Alternatives to Detention] program by Border Patrol and was told to report to Enforcement and Removal Operations office within 60...

    A TikTok influencer is advising illegal immigrants on how to 'invade' American homes and invoke squatter's rights, making it difficult for them to be removed from properties. Moreno, alleging he has friends who 'have already taken about seven homes', argued the only way for migrants to not live in the streets or be a 'public burden' is to 'seize' and 'invade' abandoned properties.

    Was this illegal part of a Venezuelan or Cuban military intelligence operation? Why, again, was he let in? Joe Biden's open borders may be about more than just replacing the electorate. The New York Post found that one of the most malevolent of the border surgers, a Venezuelan illegal named Leonel Moreno, who famously urged other illegals to squat in Americans' homes and waved hundred-dollar bills around to boast of his public benefits on TikTok, is being investigated by the feds for his military intelligence work for the Marxist dictatorship back home. According to the Post: Joe Biden's open borders...

    The socialist dictator of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro threatened a “bloodbath” and a “fratricidal civil war” on Wednesday if Venezuelans do not “elect” him in the upcoming July 28 sham presidential election. Maduro issued his warning during a campaign rally speech in the La Vega Parrish of Caracas, asserting that his victory is the only way to guarantee peace in Venezuela.

    The Biden administration designated a Venezuelan gang a transnational criminal organization on Thursday. The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control accused Tren de Aragua of human trafficking, gender-based violence, money laundering and drug trafficking. It is offering up to a $12 million reward for information that leads to the arrest or conviction of Tren de Aragua’s leaders. Any property or interests in property that Tren de Aragua has in the U.S. or that are in possession of people from the U.S. “must be blocked and reported” to the Treasury Department, as a result of the sanctions accompanying the group’s...
  • Chevron Could Get Approval To Ramp Up Oil Production In Venezuela

    11/25/2022 8:16:47 AM PST · by Vendome · 34 replies ^ | 11-23-2022 | Charles Kennedy
    Washington could grant Chevron approval to significantly boost oil production in Venezuela as early as this weekend, if the government of Nicolas Maduro resumes talks with the opposition. This potential would mean an easing of sanctions against Venezuela at a time when the United States is pushing for higher oil production to ease soaring prices. Easing sanctions on Venezuela is among the only options left to the Biden administration to increase oil production. OPEC+ has refused to heed Washington’s calls for a production hike; instead, cutting production by 2 million bpd through the end of the year. Sanctions will not...

    A Chick-fil-A restaurant in Texas has been temporarily closed after two employees were shot and killed inside the fast-food establishment by an immigrant in the country unlawfully from El Salvador. Authorities do not believe the double homicide was a random act of violence. Police responded to the restaurant located on the 5300 block of North MacArthur Boulevard in Irving around 4 p.m. after receiving several calls about a shooting, Irving Police Department Officer Anthony Alexander told NBC DFW. Police confirmed that the shooting occurred inside the building, where the two victims were pronounced dead at the scene. The suspect fled...

    My grandma loves to joke about how she got a tooth knocked out by a motorizado (biker) in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas. “¡Dame el aro!” (Gimme the hoop!) exclaimed what looked like an off-duty bodyguard. “My hoop? What the hell?” Grandma thought to herself, before realizing the man was talking about her wedding ring. “I never wear it when we go to church; I must’ve forgotten that day,” she tells us, in what feels like a skit. “I don’t know what got into me, but after the man pointed at his pocket and said he had a revolver, I...

    Police in Houston have arrested two migrants from Venezuela for the murder of 12-year-old Jocelyn Nungaray, who was lured away from home and then strangled and dumped in a bayou. One of the suspects crossed the border illegally less than a month before the shocking murder and was released into the US after claiming he was afraid for his life if he was sent back to his home country, sources told The Post. Johan Jose Rangel Martinez, 21, and Franklin Jose Pena Ramos, 26, were charged Thursday with capital murder. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sources said Pena Ramos crossed...

    Two migrants from Venezuela are accused of murdering a 12-year-old girl in Houston, Texas, Monday and dumping her body in a creek. Johan Jose Rangel Martinez, 21, and Franklin Jose Pena Ramos, 26, were charged Thursday with capital murder for the death of Jocelyn Nungaray. Investigators identified the two from surveillance footage, where they were seen following Nungaray walking into a local convenience store. Nungaray’s body was found by a Houston resident who had been driving along the creek. She told KTRK-TV she thought the girl was a floating mannequin at first. “I did a U-turn, and I stopped on...

    Two armed men believed to be Venezuelan migrants — one of whom was carrying a fully automatic pistol — carjacked an off-duty NYPD officer in Harlem, law enforcement sources said. The men approached the officer while he was sitting inside his personal 2020 BMW around 11:30 p.m. Friday at West 146 Street and Bradhurst Avenue, sources said. The suspects, who had tattoos believed to be associated with a Venezuelan gang, had their weapons drawn. One of them knocked the officer’s gun out of his hand and demanded his keys. The pair then sped off into the night in the officer’s...

    U.S. law enforcement and immigration officials have launched more than 100 investigations of crimes tied to suspected members of a violent Venezuelan gang, including sex trafficking in Louisiana and the point-blank shooting of two New York City police officers, according to two Department of Homeland Security officials. The cases involving the Tren de Aragua gang show how hard it is for U.S. border agents to vet the criminal backgrounds of migrants from countries like Venezuela that won’t give the U.S. any help. More than 330,000 Venezuelans crossed the U.S. border last year, according to Customs and Border Protection data, and...

    An alleged multistate human trafficking ring forcing immigrant women into prostitution. The mysterious killing of a former police officer in South Florida. Attacks against police officers in New York. The arrest of a drug dealer in Chicago. Local and federal officials say these apparently unrelated crimes have a common denominator: Tren de Aragua, a transnational criminal gang that originated in a Venezuela prison and has slowly made its way south and north in recent years. They say it’s now operating in the United States. The scale of its operations is unknown, but crimes attributed to alleged members of the gang...

    The presence of the nuclear-powered submarine, along with a frigate and two support vessels, is part of an upcoming visit to the port of Havana aimed at strengthening the friendship between Cuba and the Russian Federation. As tension in Europe increases due to the escalation of the Russo-Ukrainian conflict, the Russian Navy will deploy a flotilla in the Caribbean Sea in the coming days as part of an official visit to Cuba; which can be seen as a challenge to the United States government. The information released by the Cuban government yesterday, June 6, gains relevance as this flotilla is...

    Prehistoric engravings of giant snakes along South America's Orinoco river are among the largest examples of rock art we know of anywhere in the world, with some stretching for more than 40 metres.The Orinoco is one of the world's largest rivers, flowing through Venezuela and along its border with Colombia. "There's an outstanding record of rock art along the Orinoco, especially on the Venezuelan side," says José Oliver at University College London. "Usually, they are paintings found in rock shelters."Engravings are common in many open-air sites along the river, he says, but not all of them have been officially recorded...Since...
