Juan Elias Garcia, The New Face Of Crime In AmericaYou have to wonder why MS-13 gangbanger Juan Elias Garcia, who landed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List last week, surrendered just one day later in Nicaragua? [Long Island murder suspect on FBI list arrested in Nicaragua, ABC, March 28, 2014] Then again, maybe not. Garcia may well expect President Barack Obama to free him from jail, then give him Amnesty, even if the Salvadoran murder suspect is a child killer.
In 2010, authorities allege, Garcia murdered Vanessa Argueta, 19, and her 2-year-old son, Diego Torres. As the FBI explained it:
According to prior court filings and testimony introduced during two recent MS-13 racketeering trials, Garcia was involved in a romantic relationship with Argueta, a woman who had ties to both the 18th Street Gang and the Latin Kings — two of MS-13’s principal rivals. After a dispute between Argueta and Garcia, rival gang members allegedly threatened violence against Garcia. When Garcia explained that he had been threatened by members of the rival gang as a result of information he believed Argueta had provided, Garcia and other MS-13 members, including Adalberto Ariel Guzman and Rene Mendez Mejia, obtained permission from their MS-13 leader, Heriberto Martinez, to retaliate against Argueta.The FBI told Fox News that killing the kid was “a new low, even for MS-13.” [FBI adds violent gang member to most-wanted list , March 26, 2014]
On February 4, 2010, Garcia contacted Argueta and invited her out to dinner. Later that evening, Garcia picked up Argueta and 2 two-year-old son, Diego Torres, in a vehicle. Garcia, Guzman, and Mejia then allegedly drove the vehicle to a wooded area in Central Islip and lured their victims into the woods. Once they were in the woods, the MS-13 members fired two shots with a .22 caliber handgun, striking Argueta twice in the head and chest. After hearing the gunshots and seeing his mother killed, Torres began crying. The defendants shot Torres in the head, which knocked the young boy to the ground but did not kill him. Torres got back up and clutched onto Garcia’s leg, but Guzman then fired a second shot that struck Torres in the head and killed him. On February 5, 2010, the bodies of Argueta and her son were found in a wooded area in Central Islip.

VDARE.com readers know MS-13. The gang is even reaching into such bucolic places as the Shenandoah Valley, where it murdered a prosecution witness, Brenda Paz, with unbridled ferocity, stabbing her 16 times and nearly decapitating her, leaving her for dead in an area where some residents had likely never seen a “Latino” until they started showing in droves to work in the area’s chicken factories.

But what triggers this review of Garcia’s loathsome life isn’t his murdering a mother in front of her 2-year-old, then murdering the 2-year-old. Rather, it’s the news that when Garcia made the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted men, he brought to six the number of Hispanics on the list.
That’s right—60 percent of the Ten Most Wanted criminals were “Latinos.” They are:
The heavy concentration of “Latinos” is a big change since the FBI created the Ten Most Wanted in 1950. But the shift walks hand-in-hand with the massive influx of immigrants to the US that began after the 1965 Immigration Act. That legislation, the Kennedy boys and their gang of traitors told us, would open our borders but not change the historic ethnic character of the nation. But it did, and it changed the ethnic character of the most dangerous criminals among them—a considerable feat, when you consider how much competition home-grown American blacks provide.
Take a look at the complete list of names and photos: Holden, Mitchell, Jackson, Wright, Burton, Chapman, Beck, Hopkins, Wilkinson, Hammond, Waldon, Conner, Weeks ... you get the idea.[VDARE.com Note: Only one of those is black—Apee Hamp Chapman, see here and here.]
The lists of Ten Most Wanted for the 1950s, for instance, do not show one Hispanic name. Come back Willie Sutton! (who never did say he robbed banks because that’s where the money is). Similarly, lists from the 1960s show no Hispanic names.
The 1970s lists show only Enrique Estrada, who murdered two elderly women. I could not determine whether Estrada was foreign born, but he looks like he should have been Marlon Brando’s sidekick in “Viva Zapata.”

In the 2000s, we still see Gerena, of course, but we then get eight more Hispanics, not including those now on the list. Two of them are rapists; one of them burned, tortured and murdered his step-son, while another murdered his girlfriend and her two children.
Not all of them were born in Mexico. One is Colombian, another was born in Los Angeles.
But maybe this is all for the good, as the progressives tell us about “change.” Where FBI’s Ten Most Wanted was once white and black, it now includes plenty of “Latinos.” It’s a victory for diversity!—as well as more proof that immigrants do the jobs that Americans won’t do.
Like committing crimes of such enormity that they make the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.
