Venezuelan Illegal Immigrant Charged with Double Murder in the Bronx

An illegal immigrant from Venezuela with a lengthy criminal record has been charged with gunning down two people during a dispute outside a Bronx apartment building. Josue Ruben Silva, 21, who has already been arrested half a dozen times this year for robbery, theft, and gun charges, is now facing murder charges following the early Friday morning shooting in Fordham Heights, according to police and law enforcement sources.

Silva, who was already being sought on a felony warrant after skipping out on a Bronx gun case, is also suspected of involvement in a series of moped robberies targeting migrants.

“We have no idea who they are, what they’ve done in their own countries, what the plan is for them now that they’re here,” one frustrated law enforcement source told The Post. “Who says they can’t graduate from stealing sunglasses to a double murder?”

The incident has sparked concerns about the vetting and monitoring of illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds. Law enforcement officials are now questioning how Silva, with his extensive rap sheet, was able to evade capture and allegedly commit further crimes.

This case highlights the ongoing debate over immigration enforcement and public safety, with officials calling for stricter measures to prevent similar incidents in the future. As the investigation continues, authorities are working to piece together Silva’s activities and connections to other crimes in the area.
