The national debate on illegal immigration and border security tends to include the question of who and from where are the millions of illegal aliens entering our sovereign country each year?
The open-borders crowd tends to criticize and accuse anyone who says that criminals are coming in as being anti-immigrant and racist.
Well once again these groups, mostly funded by George Soros, and others working to have our border wide open, were wrong.
The Police in Richmond, Virginia, said on Wednesday that they were able to stop a planned July 4 mass shooting after receiving a tip that led to the arrest of two men and the seizure of multiple guns.
A “hero citizen” overheard a conversation indicating there was an attack being planned on an Independence Day celebration in the capital city and called police to report it, Police Chief Gerald Smith said at a news conference.”
“The caller said the attack was planned for the Dogwood Dell Amphitheater, where an annual fireworks show is held, Smith added.
“One phone call saved numerous lives on the Fourth of July,” Smith said.
Police initiated an investigation along with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI, which led to the arrests of two men on charges of being non-U.S. citizens in possession of a firearm, Smith said. He said additional charges are possible.
Julio Alvarado-Dubon, 52, was arrested on July 1, the same day police received the tip, Smith said. He said police put a second suspect, Rolman Alberto Balacarcel, 38, under surveillance beginning that day, but did not initially have probable cause to arrest him. He was arrested Tuesday in Albemarle County, near Charlottesville, and was being held in a local jail.
Police spokesperson Tracy Walker said both men are from Guatemala. Initial documents filed in General District Court in Richmond say both Alvarado-Dubon and Balacarcel are not in the U.S. legally. The documents showed that Alvarado-Dubon has an expired visa.
Court documents note bond was set at only $15,000 for Alvarado-Dubon. He has lived in the Richmond area for three years and works full-time in the construction industry.
Smith said the two men lived together at a Richmond house, where officers seized two assault rifles, a handgun, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition that were in plain view.
Police have not determined a motive for the planned attack.
“l want to thank and applaud the hero in Virginia that stopped a potential massacre by alerting our brave Richmond Police Department Officers that work tirelessly every day to protect our communities,” Gov. Glenn Youngkin said in a tweet. “It’s a great reminder that if you see something, say something to your local PD.”

Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney joined the news conference along with members of the city council.
“Whether you’re at home in your cul-de-sac, or in your neighborhood, or in a park, or at a parade, out dining — you have to keep your head on a swivel,” Stoney said. “And that’s not the country that I know I desire to live in … but those are the facts of the matter at this moment.”
Thank the Lord that this shooting was stopped and hopefully the police report back to the public the reason why these two illegal aliens would want to kill Americans on our Independence Day.
It’s possible they could have been influenced by others, with a possible payment if successful. Or, maybe they just bought into the idea that America was stolen from their forefathers, leading them to plan on killing some of those living in Richmond, as recompense.
Either way, let’s keep an eye on this story.
They will most likely be prosecuted or instead sent back to their home country without going to trial.
If the latter, we can expect to see them back in our country soon before we can say, open borders.
