Las Vegas police arrested a man Thursday for killing two people and stabbing six others on the Strip with a 12-inch knife.
“Another avoidable tragedy caused by the extreme liberal positions (like open borders) of Joe Biden,” says Noem, pointing to the fact that the suspect is in the United States illegally. But before hanging this crime on Biden, Noem should have checked the suspect’s arrival date:
A man who killed two people and wounded six others with a large kitchen knife in a series of stabbings along the Las Vegas Strip once lived in Los Angeles, according to an arrest report.
Yoni Barrios, 32, was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on two counts of murder and six counts of attempted murder, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement. He made a court appearance Friday afternoon.
Eyewitness News learned he once lived in the East Hollywood area.
According to the apartment manager, Barrios lived there more than three years ago [“Las Vegas Stabbing Suspect Previously Lived in LA, Report Shows,” KABC-TV, 2022.10.07].
So the suspect lived in LA more than three years ago—that means he came to America in 2019 or earlier. Maybe he snuck in during the Trump Administration. Maybe he snuck in before that. But to say the suspect came here and killed people because of anything President Biden did is another Noem misfire.
