    ICE: Suspect in Vanessa Pham Murder is in U.S. Illegally

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Friday the man accused of murdering 19-year-old Vanessa Pham is in violation of immigration law.

    ICE placed a detainer on suspect Julio Miguel Blanco-Garcia, 27, on Thursday, the day he was arrested and charged with Pham's 2010 murder. They released the following statement on Friday:

    "On Dec. 13, the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, which consists of U.S. Marshals deputies and inspectors, Fairfax County Police detectives and sheriff's deputies and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Washington, DC Fugitive Operations Unit officers arrested Julio Blanco-Garcia, a citizen and national of Guatemala, in Vienna, Va. on a homicide warrant issued out of Fairfax County, Va. ERO officers placed a detainer on Julio Blanco-Garcia after it was determined that he was in violation of U.S. immigration law."

    The detainer requires Fairfax County Police to notify ICE before releasing Blanco-Garcia. ICE will then investigate whether he fits the requirements to be removed from the country.

    Blanco-Garcia will complete his criminal trial before ICE takes any action, Nicole Navas, ICE public affairs spokesperson said.

    The suspect's attorney review is scheduled for 9:20 a.m. Dec. 21. The preliminary trial is set to begin in February.

    DNA leads police to Vanessa Pham murder suspect

    December 14, 2012
    By Justin Jouvenal
    The Washington Post


    Tracy A. Woodward/THE WASHINGTON POST - Lt. Col. James A. Morris announces the arrest of Julio Miguel Blanco-Garcia on Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012.

    Vanessa Pham’s friends and family prayed, held vigils and beseeched the public for help in the search for the 19-year-old’s killer. For 21 / 2 years, there was virtually nothing to give them hope.

    But then, in the span of a few days, came a DNA match and the arrest of Julio Miguel Blanco-Garcia. That brought relief, shock — and, for some, still more emptiness.

    “I don’t know how to feel or what it means,” said Jake Beckhard, who attended Vienna’s James Madison High School with Pham. “I want to know who this person is that killed her.”

    Answers to that question were still elusive Friday. Fairfax County police have offered few details about the 27-year-old suspect, what led them to him, or how and why he allegedly took the life of the college freshman in 2010.

    Pham was found stabbed to death in her Scion hatchback, which was found in a ditch off of Arlington Boulevard in the Falls Church area.


    (PROVIDED BY THE PHAM FAMILY) - Vanessa Pham

    Immigration officials disclosed Friday that Blanco-Garcia was a Guatemalan national who was in the country illegally. Local court records showed a misdemeanor shoplifting conviction in Fairfax County this year but not an extensive criminal background.

    A man who answered the door at the address given by police as Blanco-Garcia’s home Thursday night said the suspect didn’t live there and he didn’t know him. Workers at the Vienna construction site where Blanco-Garcia was arrested Thursday said they did not know much about him, although he had been working there.

    A Fairfax police official said Friday that authorities identified Blanco-Garcia when forensic evidence from a previous arrest matched that collected during the investigation into Pham’s slaying. Blanco-Garcia was not a suspect when the analysis of the evidence, completed this week, pointed to him, police said. They have said Pham and Blanco-Garcia did not appear to have known each other.

    Fairfax police have publicly declined to describe the nature of that evidence, but the police official said it was a DNA match. The official, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation in detail and therefore spoke on the condition of anonymity, would not describe the previous arrest.

    County police officials also declined to discuss a motive or where Blanco-Garcia came in contact with Pham. Surveillance video showed Pham’s car leaving the Fairfax Plaza Shopping Center shortly before she was killed June 27, 2010, and police distributed surveillance images and other information to the public and media in hopes of getting assistance with the case.

    Blanco-Garcia was arraigned in Fairfax County General District Court on Friday morning. Visible by video conference, he wore a green jail vest and had slicked black hair.

    He told a judge he wanted to consult with his family before deciding whether the court should appoint an attorney for him. He did not comment on the charges against him, and the details of the case were not discussed by the judge or the prosecutor. A preliminary hearing was set for Feb. 13.

    Pham was a freshman at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia and had dreams of becoming a fashion designer. She lived with her mother and grandmother, who could not be reached to comment.

    Robert Hamberger, the father of a friend of Pham, said she had a quick wit and was a talented artist. “You just knew she was going places,” he said. Hamberger was surprised the suspect had been arrested after so long. He said many of Pham’s friends experienced “tremendous relief” after news of the arrest, but he did not. “I found myself less relieved than I would have thought,” he said. “There’s always a hole. It will never bring her back.”

    So they let him stay because his criminal record wasn't "that bad"? It makes one wonder what else he may have done that they don't know about.

    On Thursday, police arrested Julio Miguel Blanco-Garcia, 27, and charged him with the murder of 19-year-old Vanessa Pham, whose body was found in Fairfax County in 2010. The young woman was stabbed to death.

    Pham was last seen alive on June 27, 2010, as she left a nail salon in the Fairfax Village Shopping Center on Gallows Road.

    Less than an hour later, her mutilated body was discovered in her car, only a few blocks away.

    Pham who attended college in Georgia, was home for summer vacation when she was killed.
    WJLA reports that investigators have linked the suspect to Pham's murder "through forensic evidence."

    According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, Blanco-Garcia is in the country illegally from Guatemala.

    On Friday, ICE issued the following press release:


    Young woman is still missed by many

    "On Dec. 13, the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, which consists of U.S. Marshals deputies and inspectors, Fairfax County Police detectives and sheriff's deputies and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Washington, DC Fugitive Operations Unit officers arrested Julio Blanco-Garcia, a citizen and national of Guatemala, in Vienna, Va. on a homicide warrant issued out of Fairfax County, Va. ERO officers placed a detainer on Julio Blanco-Garcia after it was determined that he was in violation of U.S. immigration law."

    U.S. Marshals took Blanco-Garcia into custody at a construction site where he worked in Vienna.

    Following the arrest, Pham's family issued the following statement:

    We will always remember Vanessa; we know this development will not bring her back to us, but we trust that it will enable us to focus our efforts on honoring her life and spirit rather than on the haunting uncertainty and mystery of what transpired that day.

    Blanco-Garcia's next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 21, during which time he will be granted a court-appointed attorney.

    Paraphrasing Spock:

    "The betterment of the lives of the many out weigh the loss of life of the few."

    or perhaps

    She died for a good cause.

    How else can one reason the fact that so many are allowed to die as a result of non-enforcement of our immigration laws?

    Alleged Murderer Is an Illegal Alien, but Washington Post Won't Say So

    By David North, August 9, 2013
    Center for Immigration Studies

    As so often is the case, the murder suspect on the front page of today's Washington Post is an illegal alien, but the paper does not report it.

    It was a particularly brutal, senseless murder of a good samaritan by an illegal from Guatemala, a now 27-year-old man. Julio Miguel Blanco Garcia was in a suburban Virginia shopping center with his one-year-old daughter; he asked a woman, apparently a stranger to him, to drive him to the hospital. She agreed; she made a wrong turn and this caused Garcia, apparently crazed by drugs, to think she was about to turn him in to the police. He then repeatedly stabbed her with a knife, as he told police investigators.

    The car crashed. Garcia then crawled out to the sunlight, pulled his child out, and walked away from the scene, leaving the driver to die. That was back in 2010, and the murder remained an open case until late last year.

    Solving the crime was the result of diligent, routine police work. Fingerprints of someone other than the victim, Vanessa Pham, were lifted from both the murder knife and the wrecked car and entered into the system. Years later, the same fingerprints showed up on some bottles of champagne that Garcia had sought to steal; Garcia was picked up by the Fairfax County (Va.) police, and in the ensuing interview confessed to the crime.

    All of these details were revealed this week, according to the Post, in a set of court filings made public by the prosecution prior to Garcia's forthcoming trial. The electronic version of the Post story carried a link to the original police report of the interview with Garcia, which can be seen here.

    Neither the police report, which said that Garcia had come to the United States in 2002 and gave other personal details about him, nor the Post article, revealed his illegal presence in the United States. Most other reporting also ignored his civil status. However, a local e-news operation, the Fairfax City Patch, did report that a hold had been placed on Garcia by ICE. That agency had identified him as an illegal alien.

    Garcia, according to the Post, had been arrested several times prior to the murder; had he simply been deported after any one of these arrests, Ms. Pham would be alive today.

    The non-mention of illegal alien status is one of the mainstream media's many subtle techniques used, all in the name of political correctness, to blur the news of the impact of illegal immigration on the United States.

    Unfortunately, as we saw with the Fairfax County police report, many local police departments have, similarly, played down the variable of illegal presence in the country.

    A couple of years ago I served on a grand jury for Arlington County, Va., which lies between Washington, D.C., and Fairfax County. When a police officer made a presentation to us about a given crime there was never a mention of legal or illegal status. When I asked about that variable the answer was given by the officer — but it was never volunteered. There were many instances of illegal aliens committing crimes in the county.

    Obama Immigration Department Responsible For Another Death

    By Joseph R. Carducci on August 23, 2013

    Vanessa Pham, a 19-year old woman is dead because Obama’s Immigration Department, once again, failed to do their job. Instead of following their own laws as written, they simply ignore the rules and allow illegal immigrants to go back on the streets instead of being deported for illegally entering the United States. As a result of this, Vanessa Pham is now dead.

    By all accounts, Vanessa was a kind-hearted person and this is likely what got her killed. A man begged her for a ride to the hospital along with his sick 1-year old daughter and she agreed. The problem was that the man was high on PCP at the time and ended up stabbing her 13 times, leaving her for dead after the car crashed into a ravine. Despite this being a horrible tragedy in and of itself, the murderer was an illegal alien who had been picked up by the police three months before this incident. According to the law, he should have been deported for entering the country illegally. However, Obama’s Immigration Department chose to simply throw him back out on the streets. And the ultimate result is that now Vanessa is dead, a gruesome, painful death that could have so easily been avoided had the authorities been less interested in sucking up the Obama Administration’s idea of allowing illegals to stay in the country free and clear and not enforcing the law.

    Incidentally, this all happened three years ago. It is only now coming to light and being reported because the murderer was picked up by police for an unrelated matter. Back in 2010 Julio Miguel Blanco-Garcia embarked on a series of really stupid actions. They began when he took his one-year old daughter with him to buy $400 worth of PCP cigarettes. Then, after smoking three of them, he decided to take his daughter to the mall. With this much PCP in his system, Julio clearly had a case of severe PCP intoxication.

    Next, Julio decided that either both him and his daughter were sick and wanted to go the hospital. It was at this point that he found Vanessa at the mall and begged her for a ride to the mall. Vanessa, being sympathetic to the case of a sick baby, agreed. Of course, there was no way for her to have known what was to come next. The rest of the story comes from Blanco-Garcia himself during a police confession. He said that she made a wrong turn on the way to the hospital. This led him to the paranoid delusion that she was going to either hurt his daughter or call the police. So, he ended up stabbing this poor young woman 13 times. Vanessa lost control of the control and ended up crashing into a ravine, which is where she died from the loss of blood. Tragic.

    Three months before Blanco-Garcia killed this innocent young woman he had been picked up by the police for public intoxication. He was even held in a county jail for several hours. But, the brainiacs in law enforcement and immigration did not get their ducks in a row, and he was simply released back onto the street to do whatever additional damage he may.

    The question needs to be asked why didn’t the police deliver this man to Immigration Officials? Why wasn’t he deported for entering this country illegally? After all, this is the law of the land. It seems as if we have gotten to the point in America where law enforcement follows only those laws they want to enforce. The rest, they either throw out or simply ignore. Sadly, stories like this are becoming only too common. Obama’s Immigration department has already admitted to releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants with felonies. So, this is not really anything new.

    If officials had done their jobs, then Vanessa would still be alive, Julio would not be going to prison for 49 years, and his little girl would not be destined to grow up without a father. Another preventable tragedy. The blood for this one is squarely on the shoulders of the law enforcement community.
