Illegal Alien Arrested For Toddler’s Killing

An illegal immigrant from Central America was arrested this week in connection with the murder of a two-year-old boy in Maryland.

Nilson Noel Trejo-Granados, 25, was arrested by the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit in connection with the murder which happened earlier this month at Langley Park.

The toddler was at the park with his mother when they were both shot in a gun fire by two groups of males, which included Trejo-Granados. The toddler died shortly after he was shot while the mother is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.

Trejo-Granados is charged with first degree murder, second degree murder, first degree attempted murder, second degree murder, two counts of first degree assault and second degree assault.

According to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Trejo-Granados immigrated into the U.S. illegally from El Salvador.

In a statement addressing the crime, ICE revealed that a New Jersey judge had ordered him to be deported from the U.S. for over a year but he remained in the country thanks to Democrat sanctuary cities.

ICE’s statement read, “On Nov. 7, 2022, a Department of Justice immigration judge in Newark, New Jersey ordered Trejo-Granados removal from the United States. The Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) arrested Trejo-Granados March 21, 2023, and charged him with theft: $100 to under $1,500. Those charges remain pending.”

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an Immigration Detainer on Trejo-Granados with the Montgomery County Detention Center (MCDC) March 22, 2023; however, MCDC refused to honor the detainer and Trejo-Granados was released by MCDC, March 27, 2023,” the statement read further. “MCPD again arrested Trejo-Granados Sept. 26, 2023, and charged him with theft less than $100 and attempt obstructing and hindering. ICE lodged an Immigration Detainer with the MCDC on Trejo-Granados, Sept. 27, 2023; however, MCDC refused to honor the detainer and released Trejo- Granados from custody Oct. 12, 2023.”

The immigration agency added that its Enforcement and Removal Operations has filed another detainer request for Trejo-Granados with Prince George’s County Detention Center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

Aside from Trejo-Granados, four other illegal immigrants have been arrested in connection with the killing, including 28-year-old Johnny Alejandro Turcios, 33-year-old Israel Fuentes, Jr. and two minors aged 15 and 16 whose names were not revealed due to their minor status.
