Francisco Serrano found in Boston, charged in violent home invasion (former MN illegal)

The saga of a young illegal immigrant found living in Apple Valley High School continues, as he is now charged in a violent home invasion – in Boston.

Francisco Serrano agreed to return to his native Mexico after a judge denied his attorney’s request to allow him to stay in the United States. Serrano was thought to have boarded a plane bound for Mexico City, but his mother told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that he had not returned. American Airlines confirmed Serrano's ticket had not been used.

A Boston woman said Serrano kicked in her apartment door and threatened to attack her early in the morning on March 29.

“He said, ‘I’m not here to steal, I’m here to kill,’” the woman said, requesting anonymity.

Well, he picked a good place for a nice safe home invasion. Boston residents aren't allowed to keep firearms in their homes.

"Her roommate grabbed a sauce pan and hit Serrano over the head."

EXCELLENT JOB!

"If convicted, Serrano would serve time in Boston and then be turned over to federal agents for deportation. Experts say if that occurred, it is unlikely Serrano would be able to return to the U.S."

Yeah, right.

I remember that too. They would find people to interview who were sobbing for the poor guy. I think there was even a rally for him.

Step 1: Allow millions of criminals to breach our border.

Step 2: Expect them to respect all of our other laws.

Step 3: Act surprised when they move on to felonies?

Francisco Serrano
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
For the sixteenth century explorer, see Francisco Serrão.
Francisco Serrano (born 1983) is a Mexican who made headlines in the United States in 2005, after he was found living inside a Minnesota high school.

Serrano attended Apple Valley High School from 2002 to 2003. Then, he and his family moved to Connecticut, where he finished high school. Serrano returned to Minnesota a homeless man, with 200 dollars. He apparently had no set destination when he left Connecticut.

Once in Minnesota, he went to his old high school, a place that was familiar to him. Serrano entered the building and decided to stay there. For sixteen days, he mingled with students, attended some classes and helped set up a theater stand. He also enjoyed the school's library, sports facilities and other amenities. He took showers daily, and used the school's men's restrooms.

Serrano was spotted after hours by a school worker, who asked Serrano to show his school ID card. When the worker noticed that the ID card was old, he notified the school's principal and the local police. Serrano was then arrested, and taken to jail. Apart from being charged with breaking and entering into a building with a false identification card, he was also investigated to find if he is an illegal immigrant, but he apparently possesses a green card.

Serrano seems to have been well liked at Apple Valley High School. Students rallied around him, showing support and sporting t-shirts that read "free Francisco!". The t-shirts were made by junior Ted York, a local community activist who had a soft spot in his heart for Serrano. "He truly is the victim here, I am sick of ignorant students and parents saying we should fear this boy. It's sending the wrong message," York said. Even the school's principal supported Serrano, declaring on national television that Serrano is good, and sending out a reported number of 1,800 e-mails to different parents of Apple Valley High School students. Seventy percent of those parents responded his e-mails with apparent support for Serrano. The thirty percent who responded the principal's e-mails with negative messages mainly expressed concern about the school's security.

After the news broke out that Francisco Serrano had been found inside a high school, he became an instant celebrity in the United States, coming out in many, both serious and tabloid, news shows.

Francisco Serrano was released from jail on bail, with 5,000 dollars paid by a large group of community people, including a man who had been arrested recently himself, and who put a considerable amount of the 5,000 dollars required for Serrano to be sent free. Serrano's trial is pending.

Following his arrest, a billionaire family announced they wanted to adopt him.

Immigration procedures resulted in an order to leave the US, back to Mexico, where he would be allowed to apply for legal re-entry to the United States. In December, 2005, he was scheduled to fly from Minneapolis back to his home in Mexico City. The event was publicized, and local television news showed video tape of Serrano going through airport security prior to boarding his flight. However, several weeks later it was disclosed that he never boarded the flight, and that his family in Mexico had not heard from him. As of February 21, 2006, his whereabouts remained unknown.

Unless McCain and Kennedy have something to say about it...

Illegal immigrants come to this country to hurt and kill U.S. citizens.

These bureaucrats are so full of themselves they can't smell the crap they are shoveling! "Unlikely he would be able to return to the U.S." - right, like who is going to stand in the way while George Bush and his congress cronies and the democrats hold open the door.

Time to fire a whole bunch of bureaucrats in D.C. starting with congress!

To survive in a state like that you have to think like a criminal and know what the criminals know about how to hobble the police. It requires a real mind change.

A lot of criminals gain much street knowldge because the ACLU has given the many rights. Their lawyers teach them about what to do in the situations they get into. Honest citizens only know a fraction of the tricks they use to evade prosecution. I wish there was a book.

the more I look at what it means to be a citizen, the more I think the law-abiding are a bunch of rubes.

my son's girlfriend got t-boned at an intersection last night. luckily when the moron took off, my son got his plate #. he was caught shortly and (of course) had a DL that was revoked and no insurance.

why be here legally? you can get all the benefits of citizenship (and some extra goodies, too)
plus the sympathy of many Congresscritters and, from what some local pharisees say, a special place in heaven.

"Experts say if that happens, it is unlikely Serrano will ever be able to return to the U.S."

That statement is comical.TU CAS ES SU CASA. Some of them come into the US as they want. You deport them today and they are back tomorrow.

Norm Coleman said that this will have no effect on immmigration policy talks since it is basically just a
fluke ....that old "one bad egg" deal.
Yep, I'm sure this is the only illegal who's tried to kill an American today.
