On January 3, 2019, the security of two Department of State buildings, one in Washington, D.C. and the other in Virginia were breached. The culprit during the burglary is alleged to have reportedly stolen 53 electronic devices, including 44 cellphones. The stolen articles consist of government-owned devices as well as privately-owned devices.
Arlington County Police Department has arrested and detained, Joel Enriquez-Bueno, age 42, an illegal alien and felon who has been deported more than once.
While very little is being said about the breach in security that occurred in Washington, D.C., the Department of State offices in Arlington houses the State Department’s Office of Personnel Security and Suitability responsible for the handling of personnel security clearances for DoS and other federal agencies along with the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security.
What are we not being told?
Timing is suspect since Progressive bureaucrats and their comrades in the media and talking heads pushed the narrative during the shutdown that all 800,000 federal employees had been furloughed thus giving the impression that offices were closed presenting the perfect opportunity.
While the suspect may have expected sparse security at both locations due to the shutdown, the Department of State’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, responsible for “protecting property as well as lives,” as reported by the Washington Post remained fully staffed. At the same time, it is an extremely bold approach for anyone to breach the security of two Department of State buildings on a Thursday morning around 9:30 a.m.
So how did the thief gain entrance in the first place?
Enriquez-Bueno is alleged to have piggy-backed in on someone else’s security as that individual entered the premises of the Arlington location after which he made his way to an “upper floor-suite” where the devices were stored. How much further into either of the buildings the suspect got has not been revealed.
Shortly after the breach, law enforcement officers from the Arlington County Police Department tracked Enriquez-Bueno to a restaurant where he allegedly attempted to sell the stolen items. According to law enforcement, all items were recovered with the exception of a pair of headphones.
Enriquez-Bueno who has no known-fixed address has been charged with “grand larceny, grand larceny with intent to sell, breaking and entering, and giving a false identity to police.”
Suspect, Enriquez-Bueno = Proof Positive of Mexico Not Sending Their Best.
Poster-Child and Justification of urgent need to BUILD THE WALL
While not much is known of these burglaries, what remains clear is that as President Donald J. Trump has said repeatedly is that “Mexico is not sending their best.” They are not and if reports are true, the timing of the burglaries and locations allegedly targeted by Enriquez-Bueno may point to something far more sinister.
In spite of the many questions that remain unanswered, according to a Department of State’s spokesperson, “We continue to meet security staffing requirements.” Except, of course, Americans know better. Case in point, Hillary Rodham Clinton cellphones and emails. (One example of hundreds (maybe thousands) courtesy of Judicial Watch, “Clinton Emails with Petraeus Reveal Her ‘BlackBerry Blues;’ Clinton Tells Then-CENTCOM Commander to Use Her ‘Personal Email Address’.” The Podesta emails? As reported by everyone, “Assange: Podesta’s Password Was ‘Password’.”
What’s my point?
Is U.S. Department of State Burglary suspect a known Mexican Illegal Alien?
In an email received Thursday, Founder of Ohio Jobs & Justice PAC, Steve Salvi, who has conducted “immigration policy and national security research” for nearly two decades is calling for the further investigation by federal officials of how such a security breach was allowed to have occurred at these two locations.
Salvi, if correct, believes that “Joel Enriquez-Bueno is a convicted felon and has an arrest record dating back to 2003.”
Is Joel Enriquez-Bueno, the illegal alien now detained in Arlington County Detention Facility the Joel Enriquez-Bueno referenced by Salvi who was charged with “violating Section 1326 of Title 8 of the United States’ Code in a criminal complaint” in 2016? [Title 8 U.S. Code § 1326. is the Re-entry of removed aliens during a criminal trial]
According to Salvi, Section 1326 offenses generally relates to aliens who have previously attempted illegal entry into the U.S. and or previously removed from the U.S. by the Department of Homelands Security. He said that Enriquez-Bueno had already been removed from the U.S. four times according to federal court records.
“Any breach of security is bad. If State Department security was breached by a foreign national, it doesn’t get worse. This breach could have resulted in espionage, a shooting, or bombing in addition to theft of devices that may contain sensitive if not classified information.”
“This should be a wake-up call not only for State but those who also oppose border infrastructure, call to abolish ICE, and create sanctuaries for criminal illegal aliens like Joel Enriquez-Bueno. ”
“It’s time our public officials stop ignoring the lessons of 9-11 and take homeland security and immigration law enforcement seriously,” said Salvi.
Clearly, we have not heard the end of this.
