Venezuelan migrant influencer who sparked fury with TikTok squatting tips is a fugitive...


A Venezuelan migrant infamous for sharing tips on how to invade vacant homes and live off the US government is on the run from ICE, it's been revealed.

Leonel Moreno's TikTok account @leitooficial_25, where he had amassed half a million followers, has been suspended after his controversial videos went viral. A spokesperson for TikTok told the platform doesn't allow users to promote criminal activities.

It has now emerged that Moreno has been on the run from immigration authorities since he crossed the US-Mexico border at Eagle Pass, Texas, illegally in April 2022, as reported by The New York Post. 

Moreno enrolled in the Alternatives to Detention program, which lets migrants on parole go free while officials track them until their next court date.

But Moreno, who now apparently lives near Columbus, Ohio, didn't show up for his court date in Miami in November, 2022, and is now listed as an 'absconder' from the program.

'We have witnessed yet another individual who was allowed entry into the US under the ATD program, only to abscond and make TikTok videos explaining how to break the law,' former ICE field office director John Fabbricatore told The Post.
