Despite President Barack Obama and his minions weakening U.S. sovereignty, more and more Americans are becoming aware of the American citizens who are being victimized by Obama's constituents who became lawbreakers the moment they crossed the U.S. border without permission or overstayed their temporary visas, according to two cases adjudicated last week.

In one case, a federal judge in New Mexico on Wednesday sentenced an illegal alien from El Salvador to 40 years in federal prison for armed robbery and felony murder, according to law enforcement officials.

Marvin Aguilar-Lopez will be deported back to El Salvador upon completion of his prison sentence, said U.S. Attorney Kenneth Gonzales in Albuquerque, N.M.

The 26-year-old Aguilar-Lopez and his accomplices -- Pablo De Leon Ortiz, 34, and Francisco Melgar-Cabrera, 30, both of El Salvador -- were indicted in October 2009, and charged with robbery, felony murder, and firearms offenses in a nine-count indictment as the result of the armed robbery of a Denny’s Restaurant located in Albuquerque and the murder of American citizen Stephanie Anderson, a restaurant worker, on June 20, 2009.

Aguilar-Lopez and De Leon Ortiz, who had been in state custody since the day of the robbery and murder, were arrested on the federal charges on Oct. 19, 2009.

On April 14, 2010, a 10-count superseding indictment was filed adding Jose “Tito” Humberto Melgar-Cabrera, the brother of Francisco Melgar-Cabrera, as a defendant.

Jose Melgar-Cabrera was charged for being an accessory after the fact for assisting Francisco Melgar-Cabrera in evading capture by police, and he was arrested on April 21, 2010.

A 14-count second superseding indictment that was filed on Oct. 14, 2010, added four new robbery and firearms offenses against De Leon Ortiz, Aguilar-Lopez and Francisco Melgar-Cabrera. The new charges stem from the armed robbery of the Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon also located in Albuquerque on June 13, 2009.

On Sept. 30, 2011, Aguilar-Lopez entered guilty pleas to counts three and four of the second superseding indictment charging him with the armed robbery of the Denny’s Restaurant, and the felony murder of Ms. Anderson.

His sentencing had been delayed by competency proceedings which concluded with judicial findings of legal competency.

Francisco Melgar-Cabrera has yet to be apprehended and is considered a fugitive.

In a biting editorial on May 8 in the Albuquerque Journal, the newspaper stated:

"Federal officials say they know where Melgar-Cabrera is in El Salvador. They need to consider dropping the death penalty in his case and adhering to a 70-year sentencing cap if it will get Salvadoran officials to approve an arrest warrant and help bring him to justice. He’s 29, and incarcerating him until he’s 99 — if he makes it that long — and then kicking him out of the country seems reasonable.

"And if El Salvador still balks, perhaps U.S. officials should reconsider the $41.8 million in bilateral assistance the Obama administration requested pre-sequestration for that country.

"Four years have passed since the 34-year-old Anderson, who was working to become a pharmacy technician, was shot and killed for simply going to work to help realize her professional dream. Federal officials need to do what’s necessary to bring the last defendant in her senseless death to justice."

MS-13 leaders found guilty of murders, racketeering, extortion

In a separate case, a federal jury in Washington, D.C., found three MS-13 leaders guilty of racketeering charges that included murder, extortion and other violent acts in the District of Columbia's metropolitan area, according to Mythili Raman, the acting assistant attorney general of the U.S. Department of Justice's Criminal Division.

The jury delivered their verdicts after enduring the month-long criminal trial of MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha) leaders Yester Ayala, 22, a/k/a “Freeway” and “Daddy Yankee,” of Washington; Noe Machado-Erazo, a/k/a “Gallo,” 30, of Wheaton, Md.; and Jose Martinez-Amaya, 26, a/k/a “Crimen,” of Brentwood, Md.

“Today, a jury has found three defendants guilty of committing heinous crimes as part of their membership in a brutal international criminal organization that has terrorized communities throughout the United States and Central America,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Raman.

“As a result of this successful investigation and prosecution, these violent gang members now face substantial prison sentences,” he added.

At their upcoming sentencing, scheduled for Nov. 4, 2013, each of the defendants faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Ayala was convicted of conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity, as well as one count of first-degree murder and one count of second-degree murder.

The jury declared Machado-Erazo guilty of conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity, murder in aid of racketeering and possession of a firearm during a crime of violence, while Martinez-Amaya was found guilty of same charges as Machado-Erazo.

According to testimony and evidence presented at trial, MS-13, a deadly and widespread organized crime organization that operates in the United States and Central America, is "neck-deep" in racketeering activity including murder, narcotics distribution, extortion, robberies, obstruction of justice and other crimes.

The gang, many of whom are illegal aliens from El Salvador, Mexico and other Latin American countries, has a code of conduct, rules and regulations such as undergoing brutal hazings such as beatings of 13 seconds before becoming members; killing rival gang members; and staying unfailingly loyal to MS-13.

According to the prosecutors' evidence, Machado-Erazo was a leader of a "program" of MS-13 cliques and Martinez-Amaya was a leader of the Normandie clique, one of a number of smaller MS-13 groups operating in the Washington area. Ayala was a leader of the Sailors, another clique.

The MS-13 cliques often operate together, and evidence at trial revealed that Machado-Erazo was the leader of the cooperating cliques.

According to evidence presented in court, the local MS-13 cliques act in accordance with the international MS-13’s modus operandi and have frequent contact with MS-13 leadership in El Salvador.

The evidence also revealed murders in the District of Columbia were perpetrated through directives from MS-13 leadership in El Salvador.

The three defendants are among numerous people indicted by a federal grand jury in three years ago. Twelve of the captured MS-13 members have already pled guilty to racketeering and murder charges in federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Criminal Organization Act) case.
