Edgar Alvarado, a 23-year-old, was shot to death after U.S. marshals mistakenly raided his home in New Mexico.

“It’s almost inexplicable, but we have evidence … that Edgar was dragged from the house, after having been struck multiple times, taken outside, given commands to give up a weapon, as he’s gurgling and flailing his arms, and shot a fourth time. Almost what you would call ‘execution style,” said the family’s attorney, Robert Gorence, at a news conference.

While his family and other witnesses say Alvarado was shot a fourth time as he was unable to follow the officer’s commands, the New Mexico Police says they’re investigating the shooting as a “confrontation.”

The victim’s cousin, Perla Alvarado stated, “They said they had made a mistake because he was out there at the wrong time. No such mistake by killing somebody. There’s no accident.”

Donald Trump launched his campaign with promises to bring jobs back to America from the likes of China and Mexico.

???

He says he would be the “greatest jobs-producing president that God ever created.”

Um, let’s not go crazy Trumpster.

BUT, according to a damning New York Times article, those jobs are likely for foreigners…

Yup, a lot of the people hired at the resort have needed visas.

According to the Department of Labor, 296 locals have applied for seasonal jobs at the resort since 2010. Only 17 were hired. In that same period, resort requested more than 500 H-2B visas for foreign workers.

When questioned, Trump told the New York Times that his resort had to go with foreign workers because nobody wanted those jobs.

What happened to the 279 Americans not hired?

Guess this is just another Trump lie…
