    4 people charged in Great Falls with "illegal transport of aliens"

    Defendants face up to 10 years in prison

    Five Mexican citizens who were arrested recently in Glacier County by officers investigating suspected alien smuggling appeared in federal court in Great Falls on Thursday on immigration-related charges.

    U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said in a press release that the five defendants were among a total of 19 suspected aliens who were picked up and taken to the Sweetgrass Border Patrol Station for processing.

    Four of the defendants, Alberto Guillen-Gordillo, 22, Omero Banderas-Rodriguez, 39, Josue Bermudez-Lopez, 26, and Samuel Velasco-Tovar, 28, had an initial appearance on a criminal complaint before U.S. Magistrate Judge John Johnston.

    The complaint charges the four with illegal transport of aliens and with conspiracy to transport aliens.

    Court documents say that in October, law enforcement officers received information about suspicious room rental activity at a Cut Bank hotel by several Mexican nationals over approximately the prior six months. The investigation led Border Patrol agents to suspect a group of aliens was coming into the country illegally from Canada.

    On November 17, agents made near-simultaneous traffic stops of two SUVs at about 11:15 p.m. In the first vehicle, driven by Omero Banderas-Rodriguez, were nine passengers. During the stop of the second vehicle, all occupants ran into a nearby field. Agents found eight of them in the field within a few minutes. One of the persons arrested in the field was Josue Bermudez Lopez. Another defendant, Alberto Guillen-Gordillo, was arrested at the hotel room where the subjects had been staying.

    Border Patrol agents arrested Rivera-Gutierrez during a search of the field for occupants who ran from the vehicle.



    All defendants were detained pending further proceedings.

    If convicted of the most serious crime, the four defendants face a maximum 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release.

    A fifth defendant, Ma Mercedes Rivera-Gutierrez, 39, had an initial appearance on a criminal complaint charging her with illegal reentry. If convicted of the most serious crime, Rivera-Gutierrez faces a maximum two years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.

    The press release notes the complaints are only accusations, and the defendants are legally presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    The Havre Sector of U.S. Customs & Border Protection covers 456 miles of international border, starting along the Montana-North Dakota border to the east and ending at the Continental Divide to the west. The sector consists of six stations (Plentywood, Scobey, Havre, Malta, St. Mary, and Sweetgrass). The stations are all within 45 minutes or less drive to the international border.

    People can report suspicious activity to Border Patrol by calling 800 BE ALERT or (800) 232-5378. All calls will be answered and callers can choose to remain anonymous.

    Process them and TRANSPORT these foreigners to Federal Tent City, WITHIN 48 HOURS, on Federal Land with a Panel of Federal Judges where they are sentenced and/or serve time and are deported on the spot.

    WE HAVE PLENTY OF FEDERAL LAND IN NEW MEXICO, NEVADA, ALL OVER! BUILD THE TENT CITY PRISONS, CREATE JOBS AND HOUSING IN THESE REMOTE AREAS!

    Get them OUT of our local jails and jurisdictions! They should NOT be in the courts or jails with legal US citizens!

    That includes illegals, visa overstays, foreign visitors, refugees, asylum liars who commit crimes here...all of them without US citizenship!

    No Jury...they are NOT our citizens and NOT our "peers". A panel of Judges like a court martial is how they should be handled.

    Our local courts and jails are overcrowded and the local taxpayers for paying the costs for this!


    Put in Federal Tent City!!!
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    Good!! And we shouldn't have one set of laws in Montana, and a different set in the blue states. This is federal law here---Federal means not states'! Furthermore we should be fining whoever's got the money, like maybe crooked politicians who encourage this. I listen to the pubic radio----I know, totally slanted but it is informative---and in Yakima WA the "Latinx' are complaining that they don't have fair representation in city government. Well, why not? Could it be they are not actually US citizens????

    Five Mexican citizens who were arrested recently in Glacier County by officers investigating suspected human smuggling appeared in federal court in Great Falls on Thursday on immigration-related charges.

    U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said in a press release that the five defendants were among a total of 19 suspected illegal immigrants < /span> who were picked up and taken to the Sweetgrass Border Patrol Station for processing.

    A Border Patrol agents said in a news release that a tip led them to arrest 16 people on suspicion of illegally crossing the U.S./Canada border north of Cut Bank.

    Four of the defendants, Alberto Guillen-Gordillo, 22, Omero Banderas-Rodriguez, 39, Josue Bermudez-Lopez, 26, and Samuel Velasco-Tovar, 28, had an initial appearance on a criminal complaint before U.S. Magistrate Judge John Johnston.

    Prosecutors are alleging the four aided in the illegal transport of the other 16.

    Court documents say that in October, law enforcement officers received information about suspicious room rental activity at a Cut Bank hotel by several Mexican nationals over approximately the prior six months. The investigation led Border Patrol agents to suspect a group of people was coming into the country illegally from Canada.

    On Nov. 17, agents made near-simultaneous traffic stops of two SUVs at about 11:15 p.m. In the first vehicle, driven by Omero Banderas-Rodriguez, were nine passengers. During the stop of the second vehicle, all occupants ran into a nearby field. Agents found eight of them in the field within a few minutes.

    Of the 19 people that were taken into custody, three are being held to serve as material witnesses in the case, and the other 11 are being processed for U.S. immigration violations. All of defendants are being detained pending further proceedings.

    The press release notes the complaints are only accusations, and the defendants are legally presumed innocent until proven guilty.
