Mexican Accused of Murdering Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry Extradited to Face Justice in U.S.
The Mexican national accused in the murder of U.S Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry is now reported to be in U.S. custody in Arizona. The accused killer has been fighting extradition since his arrest in April 2017.
“The Terry family had to wait seven years for this moment,” Agent Terry’s brother, Kent Terry, said in a Facebook post on Tuesday evening. “Finally, justice will be served and hopefully a little piece of mind.”
Shortly after 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Wired Sources tweeted “Mexico has extradited to the U.S. Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, charged with murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.” The Terry family confirmed the news to Breitbart Texas shortly after. “This is a step in the right direction,” Kent Terry told Breitbart Texas. “But I will be honest with you, we can forget that those who orchestrated this reckless scandal known as ‘Fast and Furious.’ They still have not held accountable.
“President Donald Trump told Attorney General Jeff Sessions sessions to release the documents related to this cases and Sessions still hasn’t done so,” Kent continued. I myself will not have peace until there are answers, documents, and accountability. My family has taken and continues to take an emotional beating daily and we still won’t have closure till we get documents.” Court records obtained by Breitbart Texas stated immigration officials deported Osorio-Arellanes seven times before he returned illegally on December 14, 2010, as part of a Mexican bandit “rip crew.” The accused killer of Agent Brian Terry reportedly opened fire on the BORSTAR team in southern Arizona that had been dispatched to find the “rip crew.” The rip crew had been robbing other drug and human smuggling convoys in the area. The murder of Agent Terry occurred on December 14, 2010.
“The news is definitely a step forward for our family,” Agent Terry’s sister, Michelle Terry-Balogh told Breitbart Texas. “We appreciate the U.S. Attorneys Office that is working endless hours to bring these last two suspects to the U.S. so we can get the justice Brian deserves.”
“But we still are taking two steps back,” Michelle said. “We want those from the previous administration held accountable as well. They put those guns in the cartels hands with their botched gun-running program, ‘Fast and Furious.'”
“Our current administration needs to make those remaining ‘Fast and Furious’ documents available to us.” she continued...MORE
