San Antonio, Texas - On Wednesday, the U.S. Attorney's Office of the Western District of Texas announced in a press release that Homero Zamorano Jr., 45, was arrested on criminal charges related to his alleged involvement in alien smuggling resulting in death, in violation of Title 8, United States Code, Section 1324. 

The abandoned tractor-trailer was located by police at the cross roads of Quintana Road and Cassin Road in San Antonio just before 6:00p.m. on Monday. A nearby worker at a company heard the cries for help and when he went to investigate, he found that dozens of undocumented men and women were deceased with the majority of them still inside the tractor-trailer. San Antonio police were the first responders to arrive at the scene. 

The temperature was at 103° and the majority of the deceased became victims of lack of air, sweltering heat and suffered dehydration sickness.

According to court documents, on June 27, 2022, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to the scene of a human smuggling event involving a tractor-trailer and 64 individuals suspected of entering the United States illegally.  San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) officers advised HSI Agents that they arrived at the location of the tractor-trailer in southwest San Antonio after receiving 911 calls from concerned citizens.  At the scene, SAPD officers discovered multiple individuals some still inside the tractor-trailer, some on the ground and in nearby brush, many of them deceased and some of them incapacitated.  SAPD officers were led to the location of an individual, later identified as Zamorano, who was observed hiding in the brush after attempting to abscond.  Zamorano was detained by SAPD officers. 

Laredo Sector Border Patrol provided HSI agents surveillance footage of the tractor-trailer crossing through an immigration checkpoint. The driver could be seen wearing a black shirt with stripes and a hat.  HSI agents confirmed Zamorano matched the individual from the surveillance footage and was wearing the same clothing.

HSI confirmed that 48 individuals at the scene were deceased. HSI confirmed the undocumented status of the deceased individuals by utilizing a mobile fingerprint device. Sixteen of the 64 undocumented individuals were transported to local hospitals for medical evaluation. Five died at the hospital.  Officials are working with foreign consulate offices for proper notifications to family members of the deceased.

Of those deceased, 27 were Mexican nationals, 7 Guatemalan nationals, 14 Honduran nationals, 2 El Salvador nationals and 3 of unknown origin but suspected to be undocumented non-citizens (UNCs).

Zamorano is charged by criminal complaint with one count of alien smuggling resulting in death. He is originally from Brownsville but resides in Pasadena, TX.  If convicted, Zamorano faces up to life in prison or possibly the death penalty.  A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Also charged by criminal complaint is Christian Martinez, 28, who was arrested on June 28, 2022 in Palestine.  He is charged with one count of conspiracy to transport illegal aliens resulting in death.  According to court documents, a search warrant was executed on a cell phone belonging to Zamorano.  Through investigation, it was discovered that communications occurred between Zamorano and Martinez concerning the smuggling event.  If convicted, Martinez faces up to life in prison or could face the death penalty.  Martinez had an initial appearance today in Tyler.  He will be transported to San Antonio for further proceedings.

In addition to arrests of Zamorano and Martinez, Juan Claudio D'Luna-Mendez, 23, and Juan Francisco D'Luna-Bilbao, 48, both citizens of Mexico, were arrested and had initial appearances on June 27, 2022.  According to court documents, the registration for the tractor-trailer used in the attempted alien smuggling event came back to a residence in San Antonio.  SAPD officers set up surveillance on the residence and observed two males leaving in separate trucks.  After traffic stops on both trucks, the drivers were identified as D'Luna-Mendez and D'Luna-Bilbao.  D'Luna-Bilboa was in possession of a handgun that was found in the center console of the truck he was driving.  A search warrant was executed at the residence where additional firearms were located.  Both individuals were determined to be in the U.S. illegally and were charged by criminal complaint with one count of possession of a weapon by an alien illegally in the U.S. in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 922(g)(5).  If convicted, both defendants face up to 10 years in prison. 

The HSI and ATF, with valuable assistance from the San Antonio Police Department and the Palestine Police Department, are investigating the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Amanda Brown, Matthew Lathrop and Sarah Spears are prosecuting the case, according to the press release.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Wednesday, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court ruled that X.S. who was named in a juvenile petition for the Mayfair Mall shooting in 2020 and later identified as Xavier Sevilla (now 17) should be waived to adult court. 

The majority (4-3) of the State Supreme court justices in the ruling including Chief Justice Annette Zeigler agreed that Milwaukee County Children's Court Judge Brittany Grayson erred when she denied a State's waiver petition in an attempt to have Sevilla tried as an adult in regards to the severity of his criminal acts while carrying a conceal firearm and discharging the weapon inside Mayfair Mall during an altercation with another group on November 20, 2020 resulting with eight victims (7 adults and 1 teen) being injured by gunfire. Sevilla fled the scene with the help of his family, according to court records.

The justices also noted that Sevilla has had a troubled criminal history as a juvenile including being shot during a drug deal gone bad and the discovery of 133 grams of cannabis when a K9 was used by police to search his backpack.

Sevilla who was identified by Wisconsin Right Now dot com was on probation for a prior criminal offense and was not supposed to violate his conditions of probation.

According to police, Sevilla fled the scene by calling a Uber, which took him to his family residence. Police arrested the Sevilla a day after while traveling in a vehicle with Illinois plates. A Glock 9mm handgun was recovered when the teen was taken into custody. The suspect also had a packed bag and was attempting to flee the state.

Santiago was eligible for parole in May 2022, but was denied parole and his eligibility parole date was extended until 2023, by the DOC Wisconsin Parole Commission.

Santiago is currently incarcerated at the Racine Correctional Institute in Sturtevant, Wisconsin, according to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (WIDOC).

Santiago who was sentenced to life in prison with five years extended incarceration, in 2001 finally confessed to a reporter while being incarcerated at the Prairie Correctional Facility in Appleton, Minnesota that he fatally shot Weier with a rifle from across the street as she was walking with her 7-year-old son into a Latino community center known as the Enrichment Center that was later renamed the Aurora Weier Educational Center, an alternative high school for Latino youths at N.

Laredo, Texas - On Tuesday, Webb County Judge Jose Lopez from Circuit Court Branch 49th allowed for convicted vehicular homicide driver Miguel Angel Meza, 29, to post bail while his case is on appeal. Meza was convicted last week for two counts of criminal negligence homicide with a vehicle that occurred on June 10, 2017. Meza was also facing two counts of intoxicated manslaughter charges, but were dismissed (indictment modified) due to lack of evidence from the state, according to Judge Lopez' ruling during the pretrial hearing.

Meza was sentenced by Judge Lopez on Tuesday to two years in jail for each count, which will run concurrently, but will actually serve two years in jail. He was also fined $5,000 for each count totaling $10,000, according to court records.

Meza who was allegedly intoxicated and driving a 2006 Ford Mustang at the time struck and killed Jorge Salazar Jr., 20, and David Alejandres, 19, while they were pushing a disabled 2006 Ford F-150 truck along Mines Road in Laredo.

Apparently, Laredo Police Department (LPD) crash scene investigating officers in June 2017 arrested Meza and booked him at the jail after taking the required toxicology specimens to determine, if Meza was drug impaired or had a high quantity of alcohol concentration in his blood while driving. The State prosecution wasn't able to prove that Meza was intoxicated because the toxicology specimen results were not entered into evidence in the case.

Sturtevant, Wisconsin - On Monday, the Village of Yorkville Board (VYB) and the Plan Commission (PC) in a joint meeting voted unanimously to deny a conditional use permit to Maria Sandoval, the owner of Rancho La Promesa (Promised Ranch) 14800 Braun Road, which would have allowed her to hold Mexican themed wedding celebrations, quinceñeras (15th Birthday parties for young girls in celebration of becoming young women) including other music venues in their barn, which the Sandoval family has already invested at least $30,000 in remodeling. The denial of a business permit to operate could also extend the prohibition for the Sandoval family to even hold their own family private gatherings and parties at the remodeled barn, according to the joint meeting ruling on June 13, 2022. 

Last year, the Sandoval family began to host venues without permits until neighbors who are mostly White began to complain to local officials about the loud Mexican style of music venues including DJ's, which drew hundreds of people to the Rancho La Promesa.

Rancho La Promesa is located in a parcel of land zoned for general farming and residential II type of property.

Scott Williams reported on Wednesday in The Journal Times that the Sandoval family was basically enduring racial slurs..."Maria Sandoval and her supporters had expressed concern about anti-Hispanic attitudes and racial slurs from neighbors as they sought to overcome neighborhood opposition...Village Board members, however, found that the wedding barn events were too disruptive for neighbors and were too inappropriate for the rural countryside of western Racine County."

For example, "McGowan ordering attorneys not to use or ask assistance from persons who has direct knowledge of cases", according to the complaint.

The 27-page complaint is very comprehensive and detailed exposing that the City Attorney's Office is very incompetent to represent the City, the Milwaukee Police Department and other City departments in litigation.

"The City is going to be bankrupt sooner rather than later because of them and we will have higher taxes, higher fees, less services, less safety, less basic needs being met like City streets in disrepair, water, some parks, garbage, recycling, street lights, signage, almost every thing is City, MPS, MFD, MPD, DNS, DND, water and sewage," the whistleblower told HNNUSA.
