Illegal Alien Allegedly Burns Apartments for Revenge, 130 Left Homeless

Mexicans are so hard working. They do the arson that Americans won’t do.

An illegal alien from Mexico sits in a North Carolina jail after allegedly setting fire to an apartment complex to get revenge on an ex-girlfriend. The fire left 130 residents homeless.

Police arrested Jesus Reyes Lopez, 20, after he reportedly started a fire at the Woodscape Apartments in Charlotte, North Carolina late last week. The fire damaged 40 apartment units and drove 130 people from their homes, the Charlotte Observer reported.

The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office uncovered Lopez’s immigration status utilizing equipment and training provided by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) under the 287(g) program. The program allows access to ICE databases to aid inidentifying illegal immigrants and other possible security threats. Sheriff Irwin Carmichael told the local newspaper this program makes both his staff and the community safer. ICE officials placed an immigration hold on the Mexican national to prevent him being released back into the community.

Lopez now faces two counts of attempted murder, arson, and damage to property by use of an incendiary device, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department posted on its Facebook page.

Sheriff Carmichael praised the 278(g) program. He said that information obtained by utilizing federal immigration resources has uncovered illegal aliens wanted for felony child abuse, murder, and possessing a weapon of mass destruction.

Residents of the apartment complex were lucky to escape the fire with their lives. Some families jumped from second and third story windows to escape from the fire.

The local chapter of the American Red Cross is working to find homes for the 130 displaced residents.

The fire, allegedly started by Lopez, reportedly started to target his ex-girlfriend and then got out of control. Officials estimated the fire caused more than $1.3 million in damages.

  1. “Sheriff Irwin Carmichael told the local newspaper this program makes both his staff and the community safer.”
    Both would be safer if this brownskin invader had been deported back to Mexico before he did his arson.

    “uncovered illegal aliens wanted for felony child abuse, murder, and possessing a weapon of mass destruction” The US spent $2 trillion to get Saddams weapons of mass destruction and did not find a single one. Here we learn that one such weapon at least is owned by an illegal alien and is inside the USA. Where is the CNN and Fox News 24/7 big publicity about this shocking fact? It is time for a war with all illegal aliens. Just to get their weapons of mass destruction, of course.

    “The local chapter of the American Red Cross is working to find homes for the 130 displaced residents.” Why must the Red Cross pay? Why not the US taxpayer, who voted to allow tens of millions of scum to live in the USA illegally, for decades now? Voting democrat or republican is a vote for illegal Immigration. Why is there no real white wing (Freudian slip but I like it) party in the USA, like those that exist in many European nations?

    • America: Death by a thousand cuts.

      I need to remember to do another post on the black driver of the human trafficking truck. I saw a headline that said he had no license and he had a criminal record.

      There’s just too much criminality for the police to take care of. However, they found time to put me on trial for having cardboard boxes on my back porch, an alleged violation of the fire safety code. It was a political prosecution, of course. Luckily, only a class B misdemeanor and the judge did not sentence me to jail time.

      • Yep. Only evil YT is required to follow the law or suffer the consequences.

      • I’ve never heard of the cardboard box law, lol. Was it because they were on an outside porch where they may heat up from the sun & spontaneously combust?

        Did they have anything in them or were they empty?

        What about people who store stuff in boxes in garages, etc.?

        Sorry about the police nuisance & trial. Thankfully the judge had some sense. He probably thought it was a waste of his time.

  2. Sorry….you aren’t supposed to call them “illegal aliens” anymore….They are now “undocumented immigrants”….

    • “Economic migrants” is also verboten as is “Welfare seekers”. In Australia, all invaders are called “refugees” by the (((media))).

  3. As for the perp in the story, what a brain-dead idiot, to start a dangerous fire over a love quarrel. People could have been killed.

    Are the Dems still loving these kind of jerks? I hope the 130 apt. dwellers were all Dems.
