An illegal alien accused of murdering 20-year-old Kayla Hamilton was released into the United States via the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program despite a criminal affiliation with the MS-13 Gang in El Salvador, according to Breitbart News.
In January, Aberdeen, Maryland police arrested and charged a teenage illegal alien MS-13 gang member from El Salvador with murder, accusing him of strangling to death and then raping Hamilton in her residence in July 2022.
Months ago, House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Subcommittee on Immigration Integrity, Security, and Enforcement Chairman Tom McClintock (R-CA) launched an inquiry into Hamilton’s murder and how the illegal alien suspect was allowed to settle in the U.S.
On Tuesday, Jordan and McClintock released their findings, revealing that Hamilton’s accused killer arrived at the southern border in March 2022 claiming to be fleeing gang violence, despite having been arrested in January 2020 in El Salvador for “illicit affiliation” with the MS-13 Gang.
“The Committee’s and Subcommittee’s oversight has revealed that the Biden Administration insufficiently vetted Kayla’s murderer and allowed him to enter the country,” Jordan and McClintock write in the report:
Tragically, Secretary Mayorkas and his department missed key warning signs about the alien’s propensity for violence, which law enforcement officials investigating the murder later uncovered.
The illegal alien suspect’s MS-13 Gang affiliation in El Salvador was not discovered until after Hamilton’s murder and was only disclosed thanks to the Aberdeen Police Department — not President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
“This fact is significant not only because it contradicts the [illegal] alien’s narrative to federal immigration authorities that he fled El Salvador to escape gang-related threats, but also because the Biden administration should have uncovered this key fact during its vetting of the alien after his encounter along the border,” the report states.
“In any event, DHS did not sufficiently screen this alien for potential gang affiliation at the time of his apprehension or adequately safeguard Americans by ensuring that he would not be released into the country,” the report states.
