The case of Fidel Urbina was mentioned in our 2014 article Diversity Is Strength! It’s Also…Hispanic Immigrants Taking Over FBI’s Ten Most Wanted.

You'll notice that the word "immigrant" doesn't appear in this story, although whether Urbina was legal or illegal, if he was committing (as alleged) kidnapping, rape and homicide  in Chicago, he must have been an immigrant.

Sometimes they say "Mexican national" instead of "immigrant"—this time it's "Mexican citizen."

FBI 'Top 10 Most Wanted' fugitive nabbed after 17 years on the run , CBS, September 23, 2016

MEXICO CITY — Prosecutors in Mexico say they have detained one of the FBI’s 10 most-wanted fugitives after 17 years on the run — a Mexican citizen sought for kidnapping, rape and homicide charges in Chicago.

The federal attorney general’s office said Thursday that Fidel Urbina was detained on a U.S. extradition warrant in a tiny hamlet named “El Polvo” in a remote part of the border state of Chihuahua. He was taken into custody without incident Thursday by Interpol and Policia Federal Ministerial.

According to the FBI wanted poster, Urbina is wanted for allegedly beating and raping a woman in March of 1998.

“While out on bond, he also allegedly beat, raped and strangled a second woman to death in October of 1998. Her body was later found in the trunk of a vehicle that had been burned,” according to the FBI.

He’s been the subject of a worldwide manhunt since 1999, when he was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. [More]
