Editor’s note: This series was first published on FSM in 2010, and since illegal alien crime has not abated since then and both Congress and the president have done nothing to address the deadly problem, these articles bear repeating so that America never forgets.
 
America’s Most Forgotten is dedicated to the all of the innocent people and their families who have been victimized by illegal aliens as a result of the refusal of our elected officials to enforce United States immigration law and to secure our borders. Americans remain unprotected from this unwanted invasion of unidentified people from across the world. No region of the country has been spared and the citizens presented come from all walks of life. Crisscrossing the nation, we have a predominantly African-American neighborhood in LA, then we skip to an affluent, successful woman in New York City and then to a rural Mississippi family hoping to escape big city crime and then to a Native American in small town Idaho. And on, and on, and on...
 

Idaho – Timothy Wolfe

Tim Wolfe

 
The “last gentleman”, Timothy Wolfe, a member of the Coeur d’Alene tribe, died as a result of being gunned down on a sidewalk, allegedly by an illegal alien.
 
Timothy Wolfe will be forever 21 in the memories of those who loved him. They will never experience the joy and fullness of the life this bright and personable young man might have lived. His baby daughter Abby will never again look into the face or feel the arms of the father who loved her so dearly.  
 
Timothy’s life ended on May 9, 2009, when he was shot in cold blood on a sidewalk in the small resort city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The man charged with first degree murder in the death of Timothy Wolfe is Juan Carlos Villanueva, an illegal alien from Honduras.
 
A devoted father who spent every possible moment with his 16 month old daughter, Timothy was on his way home for Mother’s Day weekend from Salish Kootenai College in Montana. Timothy stopped at the Mik-n-Macs bar with friends. One of the group, James Samuels, had an altercation with Villanueva. Villanueva’s girlfriend said Timothy tried to make peace. Villanueva was asked to leave the bar. It was an angry man who drove his girlfriend home and returned to the vicinity where he unsuccessfully tried to recruit assistance in dealing with the problem he had had earlier at Mik-n-Macs.
 
Villanueva found Timothy Wolfe and James Samuels walking down the sidewalk. He made several passes in his car and eventually stopped and rolled down his window. An argument between Timothy, James and Villanueva ensued. Villanueva alleged that “one of the males” hit him in the face. The Summary of the Incident for Probable Cause stated the accused admitted he “wanted the victim to do something to him, so he could do something back.”
 
One shot was fired from a gun Villanueva pulled from under his seat, hitting Timothy Wolfe in face. Villanueva sped away from the scene of the crime and was found eight hours later, locked in the bathroom of the Mexican restaurant where he had been employed. Indications were Villanueva intended to flee back to Honduras.
 
Charlotte Nilson, Tim’s mother, kept him on life support at Kootenai Medical Center until his family and many friends could gather to say good-bye.
 
The funeral service was held in the gym where Tim had played basketball as a teen. The service had to be delayed an hour as more and more people arrive to pay respect to the young man. 
 
Tim Wolfe was a member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe. Ernie Stensgar, former chairman of the Tribe, eulogized, “It’s difficult because he was young, and had life ahead of him and he was everything we want our kids to be. We just knew he was going to be something someday. We knew he would graduate with honors, do whatever he wanted in life, raise his children and be a good citizen.”
 
Charlotte Nilson sits on the Coeur d’Alene Tribal Council. The Tribe is in mourning, shocked and devastated over the loss of a favored son. Idaho State Senator Mike Jorgenson spoke of how this loss has affected members: “The Tribe is like a family and they are extremely upset and depressed about the loss of a young man they loved.”
 
Alecia Warren, a reporter for the Spokesman Review, interviewed a young man touched by Timothy. Wolfe taught Melvin Moses to play basketball and he taught him to show respect for others. Through tears, he said, “He was the last real gentleman. He was nice to everybody.”
 
Timothy grew up in Plummer, Idaho, a town with a population of 300. His cousin Kristi Daniels expressed the grief of the residents: “I was talking to his mom and we want everybody to know that the person who killed Tim not only killed a son and a dad, but he also killed a community.”
 
Timothy was a star athlete at Salish Kootenai College, a tribal college in Pablo, Montana. Tim helped lead the Bison to the Championship of the AIDHEC national basketball tournament in March. Tim was only 5’10” tall but he could jump to 11 feet. His love of the game, hard work and steadfast resolve led him to excellence on the court.
 
Wolfe had switched his major from business to human resources because he was “such a people person.” Charlotte Nilson spoke proudly of her son. “He wanted to get a college degree to make a better life for himself and his daughter.”
 
The dreams of Timothy Wolfe will never be realized because Juan Villanueva, an illegal alien, was living in Idaho. Timothy Wolfe’s death was 100 percent preventable.
 
Villanueva is being held without bond at the Kootenai County Jail. He moved to Coeur d’Alene in 2006. The accused had a prior history with law enforcement in Kootenai County. He was cited for four different traffic violations. One citation was for driving without a license or an invalid license. His immigration status was never run by local police through the federal agency designed to help local law enforcement, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
 
Americans should not have to live in fear in their own neighborhoods.

This series was first published on FSM in 2010, and since illegal alien crime has not abated since then and both Congress and our last president had done nothing to address the deadly problem, these articles bear repeating so that America never forgets. We are assisted in our efforts by a new president, Donald J. Trump, who has vowed - at last - a crackdown on illegal alien criminals who rampage through our nation. 

President Trump, further, has created VOICE - Victims of Illegal Crime Engagement. According to FoxNews Insider, VOICE "will act as a liaison with 'known victims of crimes committed by removable aliens.'" The memo directs ICE to reallocate resources away from advocacy on behalf of illegal immigrants and use those resources for the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office.
