Colombian intelligence agent convicted of homicide arrested in the U.S.: Brainwave ScienceSITUATION

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced arrest of a man, identified as Javier Alfredo Valle Anaya. A 50-year-old citizen of Colombia was arrested on October 5th  for violations of immigration laws. According to the report, the man obtained his status in the U.S. through fraudulent means, that has become a reason of his removal from the country.

Besides, ICE informed that Valle Anaya was sentenced to 40 years in prison in his native country for the murder of sociologist Alfredo Rafael, committed in 2004. Valle Anaya was wanted by Colombian authorities when he allegedly entered the United States fraudulently. His case was investigated by the office of immigration authorities in New York and the Department of ICE dealing with the prosecution of those responsible for human rights violations and war crimes.

Valle Anaya gained asylum in 2008 in the U.S., after expressing him as responsible for the care of an American citizen, supported by false witnesses. Valle Anaya denies that he participated in murder or was involved in illegal migration to the U.S.


According to the International Migration Report, the number of international migrants worldwide has continued to grow rapidly in recent years, reaching 258 million in 2017, up from 220 million in 2010 and 173 million in 2000. But at the same time, the number of illegal immigrations is on rise as well. Especially this problem is not new for the U.S. as the country been dealing from illegal migration for decades.

In his recent talks with Central American leaders, Vice President Pence said that over the last year alone more than 225,000 people from the three Central American countries had attempted to illegally enter the United States, accounting for more than half of all illegal immigrants apprehended at the southern border. Today, authorities of the U.S fight against violations of immigration laws on different levels, leading to formation of special departments. Established in 2009, the HSI, furthers ICE’s efforts to identify, locate and prosecute human rights abusers in the U.S., including those who are known or suspected to have participated in persecution, war crimes, genocide, torture, extrajudicial killings etc. As of today, HSI has more than 135 active investigations in suspected human rights violators and is pursuing more than 1,750 leads and removals cases involving suspected human rights violators from 95 different countries. Solving these cases needs a lot of time and efforts from the agents.


Immigration control is one of the main tasks for every nation because national security is impossible without control on which person comes and leaves the territory of the country. In recent years, public fears related to terrorism, refugees, and criminality have grown, raising concerns about the effectiveness of the immigration system in keeping U.S. citizens safe. Offered only by Brainwave Science, iCognative was invented for solving such complicated tasks and can help immigration, customs and border control agencies worldwide to find potentially dangerous persons and prohibit their entry.

By measuring and recording brainwaves, iCognative determines the fact of the presence of the crime-related information in the suspect brain. For example, in the case of Valle Anaya, the technology can help agents find out about his legal or illegal entry in the U.S., as well as about his involvement in Rafael’s murder. To do that, crime-related information will be used, such information that is related to crime and collected during investigation is called Stimuli.  Investigation details like: the date of border crossing; the names and pictures of false witnesses; documents of immigration etc. will be flashed in the front of the suspect while the system will collect his brain responses. To determine involvement in Rafael’ murder, agents can use details such as:  Picture of the victim; date and time of the murder; place where the crime happened; pictures of victim’s body; photos from the crime scene etc. If the suspect knows those crime-related details, the fully automated system iCognative will determine this fact with more than 99% of accuracy.

The whole test per suspect is completed in less than an hour (approximately 45 mins), that gives agents an opportunity to conduct  test on many suspects without wasting precious time. iCognative brings an incredible value to determine who from numbers of suspects is perpetrator and who is an innocent.

iCognative can become the best tool in the arsenal of immigration control agencies. With the power of this technology, authorities can provide safety for the nations and prevent thousands of crimes.
