In a press release about the convictions of the violent crimes, the Justice Department never referenced their illegal status – although they DO mention the illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Just a 30-minute drive away from the White House and the U.S. Immigration Headquarters, three illegal aliens who were members of the violent MS-13 gang were convicted Friday of murder and multiple other crimes.
Jorge Enrique Moreno-Aguilar (aka Flaco and Castigato), Juan Alberto Ortiz-Orellana (aka Chele and Furia) and Minor Perez-Chach (aka Minor Chach-Perez, Little Bad and Bryant Sacarias), all from Maryland, were convicted last week in the U.S. District Court in Maryland.
From a Justice Department press release issued Friday:
All three defendants were found guilty of conspiracy to participate in a racketeering enterprise and murder in aid of racketeering. Additionally, Moreno-Aguilar and Ortiz-Orellana were convicted of conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering, and Ortiz-Orellana and Chach-Perez were also convicted on various related firearms charges.
…Trial evidence demonstrated that on January 2013, Moreno-Aguilar and Ortiz-Orellana targeted an individual associated with the rival 18th Street gang, obtained photographs of the victim and conspired to murder him with other members of MS-13. On March 12, 2013, Moreno-Aguilar and Ortiz-Orellana went to Capitol Heights, Maryland and shot the victim multiple times outside his home, killing him.
According to the trial evidence, in the early morning hours of Feb. 23, 2013, Perez-Chach met a man whom he believed to be a member of MS-13 who had testified against MS-13 members in federal trials. In fact, the victim was not the witness from the previous MS-13 trials, according to trial evidence. Perez-Chach followed the victim to his home in Hyattsville, where he stabbed the victim to death while another member of MS-13 attacked the victim with a machete, trial evidence demonstrated. Evidence presented at trial showed that during his arrest on May 20, 2013, Perez-Chach was found to be in illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
