In yet another illegal immigration-related heinous crime that will go uncovered by the media, a Mexican national has been indicted for raping a four-year-old girl and is accused of molesting a six-year-old girl in Baton Rouge over the past year.
A grand jury in East Baton Rouge Parish indicted Joel Emmanuel Rodriguez, 30, on Wednesday for allegedly raping a four-year-old girl on May 26. Rodriguez was originally arrested on May 31 on the rape charge, according to arrest records from the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s office. He’s also accused of molesting a six-year-old girl between Aug. 1, 2018, and May 3, 2019, according to court records.
Rodriguez is being referred to by local media as a “Baton Rouge man,” but ICE spokesman Bryan Cox confirmed on inquiry from CR that he is indeed an illegal alien and that ICE had placed a detainer on him in May.
Over the past few months, CR has covered a rash of child sex assaults by illegal aliens. In many of their home countries, it is a regular practice to marry young girls, especially in rural areas. However, these shocking crimes seem to victimize kids who are younger and younger.
The FBI and most states do not track categories of crime broken down by legal status of the perpetrator. It would be useful for public policy decisions to know how many drunk driving incidents, how much drug trafficking, how much gang activity, or how many child sex assaults are committed by illegal aliens, but nobody seems to want to find out.
