Illegal Alien Faces Death Penalty for Killing 19 Senior Citizens
Illegal immigrant from Kenya Billy Chemirmir is facing execution for murders
An illegal alien from Kenya, who has been charged with murdering 12 senior citizens and stands accused of killing seven more, is facing the death penalty for his crimes.
Dallas prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for 46-year-old illegal immigrant Billy Chemirmir, for the spree fo murders targetting elderly women in Texas between 2016 and 2018, the Dallas Morning News revealed this week.
The death penalty is only sought in Texas for cases where prosecutors believe the suspect committed crimes against victims with certain atrocities.
If convicted, Chemirmir would receive either a life sentence without parole or be executed.
According to Breitbart, last month, a separate lawsuit named another seven senior citizens — six women and one man — who were allegedly murdered by Chemirmir, bringing his alleged murder victim count to 19 so far.
Chemirmir was originally charged with the murder of 81-year-old Lu Thi Harris in March 2018.
Eventually, the illegal alien was charged with murdering another 11 elderly women between the ages of 76 and 94 years old while he was working at a nursing home.
Breitbart reported that Chemirmir first arrived in the U.S. on a B-2 visa — commonly known as a tourist visa — in July 2003.
Though Chemirmir was supposed to only temporarily be in the U.S., he overstayed his visa and became an illegal alien who was eligible for deportation.
Rather than being deported, Chemirmir was able to use a loophole in the country’s legal immigration system that allowed him to obtain a green card after marrying a U.S. citizen.
In November 2007, Chemirmir was approved for a green card, allowing him to permanently resettle in the country.
Every year, more than 1.2 million legal immigrants are admitted to the U.S.
Chemirmir had a criminal record, according to Breitbart, including convictions for drunk driving, trespassing, assault, and obstructing a police officer.
Investigators are currently looking into about 750 deaths of elderly women to find if Chemirmir could have been connected to potential additional murders.
Chemirmir has remained in custody since last year on a $1 million bond.
