BATON ROUGE, LA – Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit recently teamed up with the Baton Rouge Police Department and the Louisiana State Police Fugitive Unit to arrest four illegal aliens now booked on armed robbery and home invasion charges in and around Baton Rouge.

In making the apprehensions of Jorge Aldari-Mencia, 20, Rommel Zair Banegas-Villela,18, Ever Alexander Robles-Cordova, 19 and Didier Javier Guardado-Cardenas , 27 – the law enforcement agencies also confiscated multiple guns and money.

“As I noted in this month’s crime roundtable, violent crime is plaguing our Capital Region,” said Attorney General Landry. “Making the community safer is not only going to take partnerships across the local, state and, federal levels; but it is also going to require enforcement of our immigration laws.”

“The lawlessness in our streets that have turned too many families into crime victims and survivors must be met with a greater force from all involved in the criminal justice system, including the Commander in Chief,” added Attorney General Landry, who has waged numerous battles against illegal immigration including those against Biden’s deportation policies and sanctuary cities.

Following these arrests, HSI detainers were placed on all four suspects.

“I am grateful for the law enforcement officers in our state who are doing all they can to ensure public safety,” concluded Attorney General Landry. “It is high time the folks in Washington support the efforts of these brave men and women.”
