CV NEWS FEED // Sen. Roger Marshall, R-KS, took to X (formerly Twitter) Tuesday to provide 12 examples of violent crimes committed by migrants who entered the country under the presidency of Joe Biden.
“The impacts of Joe Biden’s border crisis compounded by Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies have been catastrophic,” Marshall wrote. “As Biden downplays the severity of this crisis, we will bring awareness to the violent crime happening across America [and] we will not stop until we secure our borders.”
“The cartels seem to have more operational control of our border than our own government,” added the senator in an email to The Daily Signal. Marshall is a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee
He further noted that in the fourth year under the Biden administration, “fentanyl is now killing over 300 Americans a day, and violent crime is skyrocketing.”
The lawmaker went on to call the current border crisis “unprecedented.”
“By defying the law and undermining our national security, every state has become a border state,” he stated.
The crimes the senator cited on X occurred across the country.
Three took place in New York, another three in Texas, and one each in the states of Alabama, Arizona, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Oklahoma.
Marshall indicated that via his X posts, he is “telling the real stories of this crisis that this president refuses to address.”
He then urged the Biden administration “to secure our borders, safeguard our communities, and support law and order in our country.”
On July 27, 2022, Kayla Hamilton, a 20-year-old autistic woman, was violently raped and murdered in her Maryland home by a teenaged migrant from El Salvador. The perpetrator belonged to the Satanic gang MS-13.
Hamilton’s mother Tammy Nobles recently addressed the House Homeland Security Committee about the incident.
“Let’s take a moment and think about how Kayla felt that day, how scared she must have been that day knowing that she was dying,” Nobles said in her opening statement. “If she was going to see her mommy again, her baby sister, her brother or her cat, Oreo.”
“Kayla fought for her life that day with all that she had, and in the end she lost to an individual that wasn’t even supposed to be allowed into the country,” Nobles emphasized.
Hamilton’s story is one of the dozen cited by Marshall in his X thread.
At the hearing, Nobles stated that four months before Hamilton’s murder, the assailant was “apprehended by border patrol crossing illegally into the U.S. at the southwest border in Rio Grande City, TX.”
“I’m not sure if he was vetted or not, but he was a 16-year-old known gang member affiliated with MS-13 in El Salvador,” she continued. “The MS-13 motto is ‘kill, rape, and control.’”
“He entered the country as an unoccupied alien child (UAC),” Nobles pointed out.
The mother described that while her daughter was sleeping, the gang member broke into her room and strangled her to death.
“Kayla grabbed her phone and called her boyfriend but it went to voicemail,” she recounted. “The voicemail of the murderer strangling her was two minutes and 30 seconds long.”
“They need to be able to check their background, not for crimes in this country, but also crimes in their country and where they came from,” she said.
The House Committee website stated:
Nobles was joined by Josephine Dunn, whose daughter, Ashley Dunn, was killed on May 26, 2021, when she unknowingly ingested five milligrams of fentanyl. Ashley also left behind a five-year-old son.
“[Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas’ border policies are partially responsible for my daughter’s death,” Dunn said at the hearing. “His wide-open border policy allows massive quantities of poisonous fentanyl into our country.”
“Arizona is the fentanyl superhighway into the United States,” she said:
I personally feel Mr. Mayorkas is responsible for opening that border… This weapon of mass destruction has killed over one hundred thousand Americans on our soil for two years in a row under Secretary Mayorkas’ leadership, or lack thereof, fentanyl is an invasion.

According to a January 1 FOX News report, “more than 302,000 migrants were documented attempting to cross the U.S. southern border” last month. “It is the highest total for a single month ever recorded.” It is also the first time migrant encounters have exceeded 300,000.
