ICE Arrests Illegal Alien Who Encouraged Home Hijacking Via Squatting

An illegal alien from Venezuela who made a TikTok video encouraging other foreign nations to enter into the U.S. illegally and take over citizen’s homes as squatters has been arrested this week.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced the arrest in a statement that read, “Leonel Moreno is an unlawfully present citizen of Venezuela, who illegally entered the country April 23, 2022. Moreno was placed into the ATD [Alternatives to Detention] program by Border Patrol and was told to report to Enforcement and Removal Operations office within 60 days of arriving at his destination.”

“Moreno did not report as required. On March 29, 2024, Moreno was arrested in Gahanna, Ohio by officers with ERO Detroit’s Columbus office and is currently detained pending further immigration proceedings,” the statement added.

Moreno is known for showing other illegal immigrants how to exploit loopholes in U.S. laws. In one of his videos that trended across on social media platforms, Moreno urged illegal aliens to seize uninhabited homes in the U.S. through squatting. According to him, friends of his have used the same tactic to take over seven homes.

“My people! I’ve about squatting in a house in the United States, since I found out that there is a law that says that if a house is not occupied we can seize it,” he began in the video.

“Guys, here in the United States, the squatter’s law is also in effect. And I think that this will be my next business, squatting in abandoned houses. I already got some cheat codes from my African friends. And they told me that they have already seized about 7 houses,” he added.

Moreno’s video attracted so much widespread attention that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis referenced it during a press conference on Wednesday when he signed an anti-squatting bill that cracks down on any illegal immigrants who try to squat in people’s homes in Florida.

“In fact, we even have illegal aliens taking to social media, instructing other foreigners how to come into this country and commandeer property. Well, today in the state of Florida, we say very simply what passes muster in New York and California is not passing muster here. You are not going to be able to commandeer somebody’s private property and expect to get away with it. We are, in the state of Florida, ending the squatter scam once and for all,” he stated.
