An illegal immigrant has been arrested in New York, accused of repeatedly raping a 12-year-old girl.
According to a report by The Daily Caller, the man has been in America illegally for about ten years. It is unclear how he is connected to the child.
Not only did he sexually assault the child multiple times, according to reports, one of the rapes took place in front of a baby.
Fernando Alvarado-Perez, a 37-year-old male, allegedly had sex with the girl multiple times while she was between 12- and 13-years-old, Livingston County News reports.
Alvarado-Perez told officers that he came to the United States illegally about 10 years ago.
The Department of Homeland Security has reportedly issued an immigration detainer on Alvarado-Perez.
He is being charged with, “rape, criminal sexual act, and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child,” WHEC.com reports.
The Genessee Sun also reports that he had sex with the girl while in front of a baby.
The incident is yet another reminder that our broken immigration system has yet to weed out criminals like this. Under President Barack Obama, millions of people were deported for immigration violations. Most pose no security threat and were family members or students with lapsed visas or other immigration issues, who often tried to become citizens and couldn’t cut through the red tape. They were easy targets to deport and helped boost numbers.
Meanwhile, criminal aliens were rarely targeted and now roam the streets. Cities who do not honor ICE detainers set on an illegal immigrant are putting innocent citizens at risk. Under the first few months of the Trump administration, however, ICE has set on a new course of putting criminal aliens in the crosshairs, so they cannot re-offend in America.
