Note: Another sample of a day on the border. As with so many criminals from the south, seeking safety and sanctuary in the US. Only took a couple years. Those familiar with El Salvador might be aware of the lack of compassion and understanding of local law enforcement.

Salvadoran Edwin Alexander Garcia-Pimentel, aka Huezo, was returned to El Salvador on Wednesday, where he faces murder charges for the killings of three people.
An undocumented immigrant who was detained near Nogales in 2014 was handed over to Salvadoran law enforcement officials last Wednesday to face murder charges.

The Salvadoran national, 41-year-old Edwin Alexander Garcia-Pimentel, known as "Huezo," was arrested near Nogales in 2014, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a news release. He was wanted for three fatal shootings in El Salvador, where a warrant was issued for his arrest in June 2013.

A known member of the Colonia Palos Grandes clique of the 18th Street Gang, according to the Salvadoran warrant, Garcia allegedly took part in the murder of three young gang members after an argument in late 2012, ICE said.

After his arrest near the Nogales border, Garcia was placed in removal proceedings and an immigration judge determined he had no legal basis to remain in the U.S. He will now face legal proceedings in El Salvador for the alleged murders.
