Eight years of pro-illegal immigrant advocacy by the Obama administration proved to embolden those in the United States illegally.
…to their own detriment, now that there’s a new sheriff in town.
A former University of Connecticut student who calls himself an illegal immigrant has been arrested and charged with 103 counts of criminal mischief after vandalizing several buildings on campus with anti-Trump graffiti, the Hartford Courant reported.

Eric Cruz-Lopez, 22, who signed his defacements under the name “Pest,” confessed to the crime.
“I did the graffiti,” he wrote in his police statement, according to the newspaper. “I am open to entering into a conversation about restitution.”
Cruz-Lopez is an activist with CT Students for a Dream, a left-wing organization that advocates on behalf of illegal immigrants.

More from the Courant:
The university spent $4,255 to remove the graffiti and restore each site to its original state, UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said.
Cruz-Lopez was arrested on the charges May 7 and released without having to post bail.
UConn police were able to ID Cruz-Lopez through use of surveillance cameras and his UConn swipe card, according to the warrant. Police also installed extra cameras to help them find the vandal.
Police were familiar with Cruz-Lopez because of previous anti-Trump protests he took part in.
One this is certain, he’s not afraid of getting in front of a camera… or two.
