A 33-year-old illegal alien, who is clearly adept at hopping security fences meant to keep intruders out, has been arrested inside a US Air Force base after he was caught intentionally starting a fire on a rooftop of a hangar on the Luke Air Force base in Glendale, AZ.

According to ABC15 -Glendale police report that around 8:30 p.m. on December 12, they were contacted by security at the base after they had detained a man near a hangar.

Police say 33-year-old Francisco Manzano jumped the security fence and climbed onto a hangar roof.

He then allegedly used his shoes and a spray deodorant to start a fire on the rooftop.

Manzano reportedly told police that he was being chased by several men, however, police say there were no other people found in the area.

Court documents reveal that Manzano, who is in the U.S. illegally, admitted to “using numerous types of drugs,” including cocaine and meth.

Illegal aliens place an incredible burden on US taxpayers. According to FAIR:

Federal Incarceration $1,240,000,000

The illegal alien population consists of both those aliens who entered the United States without authorization and those who entered the United States lawfully but overstayed their authorized period of stay. Illegal aliens are subject to removal from the United States simply because they are present in the United States without authorization. However, many illegal aliens come to the attention of DHS when they are arrested for the commission of a crime.

Legal aliens are also subject to deportation if convicted of certain crimes. Generally speaking, legal aliens tend to offend at a lower rate than illegal aliens. This is unsurprising since a significant percentage of illegal aliens cross the border without authorization specifically for the purpose of engaging in criminal costs associated with illegal immigration, this study can be assumed to underestimate the fiscal burden imposed on the U.S. taxpayer.

Perhaps the best solution to keeping dangerous illegal immigrants from burning down US military bases is to build a bigger wall to keep them from illegally entering the United States in the first place.
