HOUSTON- The reputed leader of a violent gang with roots in El Salvador was sentenced to seven months in prison Friday for illegally re-entering the country, U.S. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg announced.
Lester Rivera Paz, 29, of Honduras, is expected to be deported after completing his sentence. He has been in federal custody since his arrest in February near Falfurrias. He was indicted in March on one count of illegal entry into the United States after being deported.
Rivera, who officials say has many aliases, including "El Culiche" or The Tapeworm, Eber Anibal Rivera Paz and Franklin Jairo Rivera-Hernandez, was the Honduras leader of the Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13 gang.
He is accused of masterminding a Christmastime bus massacre in Honduras that killed 28 people.
More than 200 gang members, including several in Texas, have been arrested nationwide since the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement launched a sweep in March.
He ought to be castrated THEN deported.
We do not want any more tapeworms running around!!
And he'll be back here in a year thanks to the idiots in Washington,including GWB.
Let me get this straight: We manage to catch a very high-ranking member of the most violent gang in the western hemisphere, and we're going to throw him back? And he won't come back to haunt us because...?
The Tapeworm how fitting!
Hmmmm, I wonder how he came to be in the U.S.?
I wonder what's going to prevent him from being # 1,738,256 of next year's 3,000,000 entries into our nation.
Actually I don't wonder at all. NOTHING at all will prevent it.
If he wants to be, he'll back in less than a week!
Whew, that's a relief. It should deter him from ever coming back again. /s
I think they nabbed your gardener.
I think he'll be tried for murder in Honduras or maybe a Sombra Negra (Black Shadow) death squad will execute him!
MS-13 gang leader to be imprisoned, then hanged
don't we wish.....
"And he'll be back here in a year thanks to the idiots in Washington,including GWB."
You are correct, Sir!
Insert a tracking devise under his skin and let him lead us to the rest of the gang
But the solution is to go after them in the cities where they are operating, not just sit back and hope to catch them crossimng the border. Especially since the ones without records can get visas.
How about when we deport him we parachute him back into South America with a bag full of dirty socks and shoe lace on his back for a chute. I don't think South America would object as long as his air borne corpse did not hit an innocent. With his tattooes he is dead meat when he gets home anyhows.
Holy crap your gutsy. I commented yesterday that GW wasn't a conservative and I got gang-flamed. I like his WOT approach, but his policy on open borders(which should be an integral part of the WOT)is waiting to blow up in our face.
