An illegal immigrant was caught on camera allegedly trying to get welfare but being met by immigration officers instead (video below).
In the clip, the immigrant can be seen kneeling by his truck while an ICE agent searches it. Soon, other agents arrive and speak to the man, who was reportedly attempting to get a welfare check from Health and Human Services at the time. The incident apparently took place in Texas.
The clip went viral after it was posted to VidMax's Facebook page, garnering strong responses from viewers.
Some pointed out that the background story regarding the man getting welfare may not have actually been accurate.
"The title is a lie nice try trying to assume that the guy is on welfare nothing indicates that, the guy recording says there's a restaurant across the street he was probably going to work,then got busted,most ppl on welfare are American citizens," one VidMax viewer commented on the site's Facebook page.
Others felt that regardless of why the man was there, he shouldn't have been in the country illegally in the first place.
"Thank God we finally have a president who's doing something about this. I just want to know how he got on welfare if he's here illegally, another liberal policy I guess," one Mad World News reader commented on the site's Facebook page.
"They also need to go to the Money Places that Send Money overseas and everywhere else, up to and Including Money Grams from Walmart. i personally saw a woman of Hispanic or Philpino descent get asking for a $4,000.00 money order," another added.
"ICE simply needs to hang out at the Welfare Office and nail all these criminal aliens," another wrote.
In another incident involving an illegal immigrant, North Carolina resident Oliver Mauricio Funes-Machada was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of his mother, who he killed by chopping off her head with a butcher knife.
"I can't imagine how anyone could do that to anybody, much less your own mother," a neighbor of Funes-Machada, Randy Mullins, told WRAL. Mullins said he saw the face of one of the police officers who arrived to the 18-year-old suspect's home after witnessing the gruesome scene left behind.
"I saw what happened and it was unbelievable," Mullins said. "He just looked like he was just blown away. I mean, he was just in terror, he was so upset."
