The Mexican immigrant was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for conspiring to help and incite the escape of his brother Paulo Virgen Mendoza, following the murder of a police officer in December 2018.

In a speech delivered on January 9, 2019, from the White House, he made it one more argument to talk about the need to build a border wall along the southern border of the United States that would prevent illegal immigration.
