WHITTIER, CALIFORNIA – 16 July, 2018
Alejandro Alvarez Villegas, who allegedly attacked his wife with a chainsaw in front of their three children in Whittier, as USA Really reported earlier, has been deported 11 times according to NBC San Diego, referencing ICE.
"Department of Homeland Security databases indicate Mr. Alvarez-Villegas is a serial immigration violator who has been removed from the United States 11 times since 2005," a spokesperson for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said.
According to NBC San Diego, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement lodged an immigration detainer against Alejandro Alvarez, 32. Their records indicated he has been deported 11 times since 2005.
He was arrested in Chula Vista in a stolen vehicle on Thursday. He will face charges of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run and grand theft auto.
Gloria Mojica, his wife, went into surgery Wednesday and now is in stable condition. She expected to make a full recovery from her injuries.
The children, ages 10, 8 and 5, were not hurt. They were placed into protective custody, officials said.
During a traffic stop, Alvarez allegedly tried to ram a police car, but authorities managed to take him into custody without anyone getting hurt, said Chula Vista Police Lt. Kenny Heinz.
USA Really could not confirm whether ICE's statement is true or false, as there is no reference to the case on the official webpage, Facebook, Twitter. News outlets did not provide any links to the statement’s audio or video footage. Stay awake, check the facts, and train you critical thinking skills: and of course, do not believe everything you read.
