    Widow of man allegedly murdered by illegal alien blames ICE

    Widow of man allegedly murdered by illegal alien blames ICE


    Julie Nordman, (l.), believes her husband Randy was killed by someone who should never have been in the US. (Julie Nordman)

    March 01, 2017

    A Missouri widow told U.S. senators Wednesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement failed her family after an illegal alien went on a killing spree, allegedly taking four lives, plus her husband.

    The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs heard the testimony of Julie Nordman, whose husband, Randy, was murdered in their New Florence, Missouri, home in early 2016. The panel also heard from law enforcement officials citing similar tragedies committed by individuals who had illegally entered the United States.

    Nordman told the committee that had ICE authorities “just done their jobs” the victims would still be alive.

    “And most importantly to me, my husband would still be here. Instead, every day that I’m at our house, I’m reminded of this tragic event,” Nordman said. “I wish you could bring myhusband back, but we all know that can’t happen. What you can do, is make sure that this doesn’t happen to another innocent family in the future.”

    The man who is charged, Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino, is also charged with killing four others in Kansas City, just the day before killing Randy Nordman. Serrano-Vitorino had been deported in 2004 after fulfilling a two-year prison sentence, but managed to illegally re-enter the U.S. According to Nordman’s testimony, Serrano-Vitorino invaded their home early on the morning of March 8, 2016, while her husband was getting ready for work. Nordman found her husband shot dead on the kitchen floor.



    Ranking member Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., sent a letter inviting ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan to the hearing, but he declined.

    “ICE is the only agency capable of providing detailed answers and information about these cases, and it’s deeply concerning that they’ve declined to send someone to speak with the victim’s family, law enforcement, and Republican and Democratic members of the Committee,” McCaskill said. “Their absence is creating a troubling pattern of Administration officials continually dodging oversight requests from this committee—a pattern that cannot be allowed to continue.”

    Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., sent a letter to ICE on Tuesday requesting documentation and information about criminal illegal aliens in an effort to determine whether or not the individuals held in connection to the crimes would make them a priority for removal under President Trump's Jan. 25 Executive Order on enhancing public safety.

    ICE did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

    Nordman told the committee that she was never contacted by ICE or anyone from the government to “express their remorse,” although she read in media reports that ICE would monitor her husband’s case.

    “I find their statement couldn’t be any further from the truth,” Nordman said. “Not only has ICE failed us, but our borders have failed us.”

    In addition to Nordman’s testimony, the panel heard from Chief Deputy Ryan Rectenwald of Grant County, Washington, who shared the story of Jill Marie Sunberg, the 31-year-old who was killed by five illegal aliens shortly before Christmas 2016.

    “The fact that these suspects were here illegally isn’t my point,” Rectenwald said. “It’s that the shooter was still in the U.S. after being convicted of crimes, and previously deported.”

    Rectenwald also shared instances of drug trade through the “porous” southwest border, sharing accounts of an increase in accessibility and affordability for drugs like, heroin, which Chairman Johnson described as an “affordable, destructive habit.” According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, 10,574 Americans died from heroin-related overdoses in 2014.

    “This is actually pretty simple -- not a whole lot of complexity to what I’m trying to accomplish here -- just trying to lay out with some powerful stories about what happens when a nation does not secure its borders or enforce our immigration laws,” Johnson said, citing President Trump’s address to Congress Tuesday night. “To me, the role of federal government — the top priority, is the defense of this nation, the defense of this homeland, the security of its borders and the security of its citizens – that’s all this hearing is about.”

    Trump has directed the Department of Homeland Security to hire 10,000 ICE officers and agents, along with 5,000 border patrol agents.

    “Border security and immigration laws are not just a concern for our communities along the border — they affect all Americans,” Johnson said. “We need to understand the consequences of not securing our borders and not enforcing our immigration laws.”

    Arrest obama as an accomplice to murder - ask pelosie if this is one of her "law abiding citizens" - arrest her too or commit her for insanity - at least fire her. Where is the consideration, protection for American citizens? Sue the mexican gov't along with suing ours for your loss Julie.

    Oh my God, getting ready for work in your own kitchen. This could happen to any of US, people. Yes, I know we face the same risk from our own people, but it's a numbers issue as all risks are. You don't increase the risks by increasing the numbers with 30 million illegal alien criminals roaming through our land in violation of the US immigration law. That's 30 million fugitives running loose in our neighborhoods. COME ON WAKE UP!!!

    ICE Chief Refuses Senator’s Request For Criminal Illegal’s Case File

    It is obvious that McCaskill is up for re-election....

    ICE Chief Refuses Senator’s Request For Criminal Illegal’s Case File

    KATHRYN WATSON
    Reporter
    12:11 PM 03/01/2017


    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials refuse to share the case file of a convicted criminal and illegal immigrant suspected of murdering five men, including one of Sen. Claire McCaskill’s constituents, the Missouri Democrat said Wednesday.

    An exasperated McCaskill said to the Senate Committee On Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) hearing on border security that the file that may provide answers to how ICE failures allowed convicted felon Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino to escape. He skirted multiple encounters with police, re-entered the country illegally after deportation, and allegedly murdered four men in Kansas and 49-year-old Randy Nordman in Missouri in March 2016.

    “If we want to stop future tragedies, we have to see that file,” said McCaskill, who is the panel’s ranking minority member, as she faced Nordman’s widow, Julie, who testified Wednesday. “We have to understand the mistakes that were made. And we have to have our questions answered.”

    ICE officials cited privacy concerns for refusing to disclose the file, a claim that “flies in the face” of President Donald Trump’s recent executive order declaring non-citizens have no privacy rights, McCaskill said.


    McCaskill said ICE Director Thomas Homan also refused to appear at Wednesday’s hearing or send a representative. President Donald Trump named Homan acting director of the agency in January.

    “It would have been nice to have somebody from ICE at this table to look at you and say ‘I’m sorry,’ and to acknowledge the failures of that agency,” McCaskill told Nordman.
    McCaskill said Serrano-Vitorino “never should have been in this country” at all.

    The illegal immigrant had multiple run-ins with police in the U.S. dating back to 1998, and federal officials deported him to Mexico in 2004, according to ICE. He somehow re-entered the country and was convicted of domestic battery in Kansas in 2015, according to the AP. ICE failed to pick him up, so Serrano-Vitorino pleaded guilty, paid a fine, and walked free.

    Nordman said those events led to her husband’s “senseless murder” in their Missouri home March 8, 2016, likely as the illegal immigrant attempted to take car keys to flee law enforcement from his alleged quadruple murder in Kansas the day before.

    Serrano-Vitorino faces charges of five counts of first degree murder.

    “Not only has ice failed us, but our borders have failed us,” Nordman told the committee.

    HSGAC Chairman and Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson guaranteed Nordman she will obtain all the answers she needs from ICE and other federal and local officials.

    The Daily Caller News Foundation has reported federal immigration court judges allow one in three illegal immigrants charged with crimes to go free, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).

    Suspect in four KCK slayings charged in mid-Missouri killing

    Missouri Highway Patrol says that Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino was arrested at 12:18 a.m. in Montgomery County

    Serrano-Vitorino, 40, is suspected of gunning down five people, four of them in Kansas City, Kan.

    He was armed with a rifle, but no shots were firedr

    Missouri Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Scott White discusses the arrest of murder suspect Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino early Wednesday in Montgomery County, Mo.mcampbell@kcstar.com

    That man turned out to be Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino, 40, according to court records released Wednesday. Police believe he had killed four people hours earlier in Kansas City, Kan. Now, a fifth victim was dead.

    On Wednesday, prosecutors in Montgomery County, Mo., charged Serrano-Vitorino with first-degree murder, armed criminal action and burglary in the shooting death of Randy J. Nordman, 49, of New Florence, Mo.

    Authorities captured Serrano-Vitorino in mid-Missouri shortly after midnight Wednesday morning after a more than 16-hour manhunt that involved police helicopters, K-9 units and nearly 100 law enforcement officers.

    He was arraigned in Montgomery County Circuit Court on Wednesday afternoon and was held without bond. Online court records did not list a lawyer for him.

    According to court records, investigators found a magazine at the Missouri homicide scene containing the same type of ammunition used in the Kansas City, Kan., slayings. When law enforcement officers captured him, Serrano-Vitorino was carrying a long rifle that matched the description of the weapon used in all five killings.

    In his pocket, they found the keys to the truck driven away from the Kansas City, Kan., murder scene and abandoned along Interstate 70 in Montgomery County, between Columbia and St. Louis. Investigators used those keys to start the truck.

    They took Serrano-Vitorino into custody at 12:18 a.m. after he allegedly accosted a man in an automobile near the junction of Interstate 70 and Missouri 19 in Montgomery County. The motorist told authorities a man with a gun approached him shortly before midnight at the busy highway interchange, which has a McDonald’s restaurant, a few motels and gas stations.

    Officers found Serrano-Vitorino face down in the muddy ditch between the north outer road of the highway and the westbound on-ramp. The Missouri Highway Patrol, which led the manhunt, said no shots were fired and Serrano-Vitorino surrendered without resistance.

    “He was exhausted,” said Sgt. James Hedrick of the highway patrol.

    At least one gas station market at the junction had closed and locked its doors earlier because of the manhunt. The hunt had unnerved residents of New Florence, Mo., which has a population of less than 800.
    “As law enforcement, we’re very relieved it ended the way it did,” said Sgt. Scott White of the highway patrol. “Certainly, the citizens are relieved. We have five people killed. We did not want any more injuries or deaths.”

    The Nordmans’ home was not far from where Serrano-Vitorino was arrested.

    His pickup truck had been spotted on the side of the eastbound lanes of I-70, also not far away, at 7:02 a.m.

    Julie Nordman’s call to 911 reporting the shooting was received at 7:20 a.m. She described a man wearing clothing associated with Serrano-Vitorino.

    A search perimeter was established within minutes, White said.

    As many as 100 law enforcement officers, including canine, helicopter and tactical squads, joined the search. It was complicated by nightfall with rain.

    White said agents chased down at least 40 leads and checked numerous tips from the public.

    Serrano-Vitorino was found at the north edge of the search perimeter.

    The search area had been concentrated south of I-70. Officials said he might have gotten to the other side of the highway through a culvert.

    Matthew Schoo, chief deputy sheriff of Montgomery County, thanked law enforcement agencies across the state that offered assistance in the case.

    People in Montgomery County and surrounding areas were abuzz on social media all day Tuesday about the search operation.

    “We tried as best we could to keep the community informed,” Schoo said.

    Nordman and his wife had been preparing a New Florence racetrack for radio-controlled cars called Empire of Dirt RC Park and Campground.

    In the incorporation papers, filed in September 2014, Nordman described the 32-acre campground as a “place to drive and race radio-control cars.…”

    The park’s website launched in January. “One of our goals for our RC park is to bring RCers from mid-Missouri area together with RCers from St. Louis area,” the Nordmans wrote on the site.
    This past February and March, the Nordmans posted several online updates as they prepared the site for competition. They also invited campers to pay $10 a night to sleep in tents or $15 to park a trailer.
    Nigel Doerge, an enthusiast of radio-controlled cars, met the Nordmans last summer after they posted an online invitation to Columbia-area radio-controlled enthusiasts to visit the park as it was under construction.

    Doerge spent several weekends at the site. He described the Nordmans as racing enthusiasts who had worked at an auto racing track before growing interested in the radio-controlled car hobby.
    “I can’t stress enough about how nice Randy was,” said Doerge. “Very nice, very genuine. It was a really neat place that he was working on.”

    I would look at this as a joke if the story didn't end so sadly. Take notice on how Democrat Senator McCaskill ignores her own culpability of any wrongdoing in this tragedy. She should be stumbling all over herself to apologize to the heart-stricken widow!

    Lawsuit: ICE was negligent when previously deported KCK felon allegedly killed five

    July 10, 2017
    Tony Rizzo

    Federal immigration officials negligently allowed a Kansas City, Kan., man to remain in the country illegally before he allegedly killed five men in a 2016 shooting spree, according to a recently filed lawsuit.

    The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kan., by the families of two of the five men who Pablo Serrano-Vitorino is now charged with killing.

    Serrano-Vitorino had previously been deported after he was convicted of a felony in 2003.

    But according to the suit, Serrano-Vitorino re-entered the country illegally and had several brushes with local law enforcement agencies before March 2016, when he allegedly stormed into a neighbor’s home in Kansas City, Kan., and fatally shot four men.

    Later that day, he allegedly shot and killed another man in Montgomery County, Mo., before he was arrested.

    The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the widow and two children of Clint Harter, one of the four men killed in Kansas City, Kan., and the widow of Randy Nordman, the Missouri man who was killed.

    According to the suit, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials had the opportunity to detain Serrano-Vitorino for illegally re-entering the country after he was arrested in 2014 and 2015.

    In 2014, Wyandotte County officials notified ICE that Serrano-Vitorino was in jail for domestic battery, according to the suit. But authorities had to release him because no ICE agent came to interview him in person.

    Then in 2015, he was pulled over by Overland Park police for traffic violations. After he was fingerprinted at Overland Park Municipal Court, ICE prepared paperwork to have him detained.

    But the paperwork was sent to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, which did not have Serrano-Vitorino in custody. Overland Park officials, unaware of the paperwork, released him.

    “Clint and Randy’s deaths are the direct and proximate result of the failure of ICE officials, officers and/or agents to carry out their required duties, which failure provided the means for a convicted felon who was illegally in the country, but in custody, to be released and kill Clint and Randy and three other victims,” according to the suit.

    An ICE spokesman said Monday that the agency does not comment on pending litigation.

    “Clint and Randy’s deaths were foreseeable and preventable had the ICE officials, officers and/or agents involved simply followed the laws, regulations and/or procedures, which they were required to uphold,” the suit alleges.

    The suit seeks an unspecified amount of damages.

    Serrano-Vitorino is currently jailed in St. Louis where he is awaiting trial on a charge of first-degree murder in Nordman’s death. The case was moved from Montgomery County on a change of venue.

    He also is charged with first-degree murder in Wyandotte County for the deaths of Clint Harter; his brother, Austin Harter, and Mike Capps and Jeremy Waters.

    Why isn't Obozo the #1 defendant? After all it was his policies, his leaning on everyone involved with Homeland Security and ICE that made this situation all the more likely to happen. It was the entire Democrat Party that stood in the way of any progress on Border Enforcement
