REPORT: Illegal Immigrant in Nevada to be Charged with Four Murders in Two Week Period
A 19-year-old illegal immigrant residing in Carson City, Nevada will likely face murder charges in connection with four separate cases, reports NBC News.
“Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, 19, was arrested on Saturday on immigration and stolen property charges, Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said during a press conference,” writes NBC.
“Furlong said he believes Guzman has been in Carson City for about a year and is in the country illegally, but did not know where he is originally from,” adds the report.
“At this stage in the investigation, we feel confident we have the evidence that will link him to all four homicides,” confirmed the Washoe County Sheriff’s office.
President Trump responded to the report Monday evening, saying “Four people in Nevada viciously robbed and killed by an illegal immigrant who should not have been in our Country.”
Four people in Nevada viciously robbed and killed by an illegal immigrant who should not have been in our Country. 26 people killed on the Border in a drug and gang related fight. Two large Caravans from Honduras broke into Mexico and are headed our way. We need a powerful Wall!

ARMAGEDDON AGAIN? Pelosi Warns Government Could be ‘CLOSED FOREVER’ Over Budget Fight
Likely Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi escalated her war-of-words with the Trump administration Thursday; saying the government could be “closed forever” because of her opposition to the President’s border wall.
Pelosi was speaking with reporters during her weekly press conference at the Capitol when she was asked if she planned to cave to the President’s security demands.
Pelosi predicts the government will stay "closed forever" because she is never going to fund the border wall.

“Let’s hope there won’t be a shutdown of the government. That’s a very bad thing to do, maybe the President doesn’t grasp that. That is very harmful to our country at significant cost,” said Pelosi.
“They still voted against opening up the government [the last time.] Does he want to have government closed forever? What’s this about? I know he doesn’t believe in government,” she added.
