Four Criminals on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted List Are Immigrants

Looked at the FBI’s Most Wanted list lately? If not, you might be surprised to learn that four of the 10 criminals on the list are immigrants — including at least two who were in this country illegally when they committed their heinous crimes.

The makeup of the list highlights the problem of illegal immigration and crime in this country that President Donald Trump raised throughout his presidential campaign — something he’s continued to emphasize, with the creation of a special unit at the Department of Homeland Security called Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE).

Of the six American citizens on the list, three are Spanish speakers. Two of those three have ties to Mexico and are thought to possibly be hiding out in that country.

At least three of the criminals on the list have ties to violent transnational gangs that did not exist in the U.S. before the 1980s.

“They exploit the border.

The FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Criminals And The Vile Crimes They Committed

With a fascination in true crime entertainment continually being on the rise, people fail to realize that criminals aren’t just reserved to the pages of novels and Netflix screens. They’re alive and well and the FBI’s 10 most wanted fugitives in the United States is undoubtedly proof of that harsh and often terrifying reality.

The 10 men on this list vary in age, race, and ultimately, the crimes they’ve committed. If nothing else, the FBI’s most wanted illustrates the notion that crime is not one-size-fits-all. Just because someone doesn’t “look” like a criminal, doesn’t mean they aren’t. To further that point, take William Bradford Bishop as a prime example. Added to the list in April 2014, the FBI describes Bishop as:

“Bishop was, and may still be, an avid outdoorsman, camper, and hiker. He had extensive camping experience in Africa. He also enjoyed canoeing, fishing, swimming,

Information scant on SA’s most wanted criminals

Despite repeated requests over nearly three months for the photographs and details of South Africa’s most wanted criminals‚ police have failed to respond.
