Gangbanger Awarded Asylum at 13 Guilty of Machete Murder

A gangbanger who entered the nation illegally as a child as part of Obama’s open borders policy has admitted guilt to killing a New York teenager with a machete. Samuel Ponce, an El Salvador native, entered the United States at the age of 13 as a result of a scheme that allowed hundreds of thousands of largely Central American young people to enter the country across the Mexican border. They are categorized by the government as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), and the majority of them are from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

The number of UAC in U.S. custody more than doubled in the last few months following a big drop during the Trump administration and the government is currently housing more than 21,000. President Trump tried to control the damage with an order instructing federal agents to stop giving minors special protections when they are processed. In the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Trump administration expelled nearly 9,000 migrant children under an emergency health order.

Ponce spent a brief period in a government-funded facility before being released to a family in Long Island, New York, like many other UAC asylum seekers. He joined the notoriously dangerous Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), a street gang made up primarily of undocumented Central Americans that has spread across the United States and is notorious for drug dealing, murder, rape, robbery, house invasions, kidnappings, vandalism, and other violent crimes.

At age 15, Bryan Lemus, a teenager from Uniondale, was brutally murdered with a machete by Ponce, also known as “Little Chickie,” and other MS-13 brothers in the Massapequa Park Preserve. The victim was enticed into the preserve, a 432-acre county property with streams, wetlands, and nature paths, while out on a dog walk. Police said in a local news report that Lemus was associated with the gang but some members felt he was an enemy of their clique and “he was marked for death.”

Years passed before homicide officers finally came across the teen’s body in a shallow burial after combing the region. The killing was committed in 2016, the body was discovered in 2019, and the Nassau County District Attorney indicted four MS-13 gang members in 2020, including Raul Ponce. Samuel Ponce was already in custody and facing charges. He entered a plea of guilty to second-degree murder only a few days ago, the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office reported. According to the statement from the county’s chief prosecutor, Joyce Smith, “Bryan Lemus was just 18 years old when he was mercilessly attacked and violently murdered with machetes by the defendant and multiple MS-13 members.”

Ponce, who is 20 years old, was arrested on September 17, 2019. Because he was only 15 when he committed the atrocious crime, there is a cap on the maximum sentence, 15 years to life in prison.

The criminal route that Ponce took after coming to the US illegally is not unusual among the countless UAC who have benefited from Uncle Sam’s open arms. Homeland Security sources informed Judicial Watch that the nation’s most dangerous street gangs, including MS-13 and the 18th Street gang, were aggressively recruiting new members at U.S. shelters housing the youngsters when the barrage of UAC started in 2014. Thanks to the inflow of illegal alien gang members who entered the state under Obama’s disastrous scheme, the Texas Department of Public Safety later determined that MS-13 is a top-tier gang.

It has ignited a national crisis because the Justice Department’s National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC) says criminal street gangs like the MS-13 are responsible for most violent crimes in the U.S. and are the primary distributors of most illicit drugs.

A few years ago, the constant influx of unaccompanied youngsters from illegal immigration fueled the MS-13 gang in Maryland to the point where it terrified a middle school less than ten miles from the capitol. Teachers are reportedly terrified, narcotics are distributed, gang graffiti is all over the neighborhood surrounding the college, and gang-related battles happen every day, according to a lengthy piece in a major newspaper. MS-13 actively seeks out newcomers from Central America, according to the scores of instructors, parents, and kids questioned for the report. An eighth grader claimed the gang “dominates the school.”

In addition to reducing the flow of UAC into the country, the Trump administration established a special task force to dismantle MS-13, the worst street gang in the country, and senior leaders were arrested. An MS-13 leader was nationally charged for the first time with crimes related to terrorism, and the formidable Hollywood leadership was overthrown. The administration also sought the death penalty for a senior MS-13 member. The Trump administration indicted MS-13 chief Alexi Saenz in New York, where the Ponce brothers operated, on charges of seven killings, including the use of a machete and baseball bat to kill two high school students.
