Every day, there are stories of Americans or immigrants being murdered, raped, or assaulted either by illegal aliens who could have been deported if not for sanctuary cities, by those admitted legally without proper vetting, or by those who have exploited immigration loopholes that should be closed.
Unfortunately, unlike the soul-searching that takes place after each mass shooting as to what sort of gun control policies can be enacted to somehow prevent a criminal from getting a gun, there is no soul-searching from a single prominent member of Congress after any one of these criminal alien cases as to what can be done to enforce national sovereignty and better prevent crime. There are no questions of how to close to the criminal alien loopholes, clamp down on sanctuary cities, or enforce our immigration laws to prevent 100 percent avoidable crimes.
Here is just a tiny sample of some of the most recent cases that should spawn a debate in Congress when it returns from recess in September.
Montgomery County, Maryland: Brutal rape, child molesting, and MS-13 activity
As Nate Madden reported, there are now four known illegal alien rape suspects in Montgomery County, Maryland, just from this past month. Montgomery is a hotbed of MS-13 and criminal alien activity in a substantial illegal alien population from Central America. Yet the county has rolled out its welcome mat to illegal aliens and works to shield them from detection of law enforcement in defiance of federal law.
In the latest incident, Kevin Mendoza, an illegal alien from Honduras, is accused of brutally raping a woman outside a Rockville, Maryland, apartment complex on Saturday night. As the police report, posted online by local ABC reporter Kevin Lewis, states, the suspect strangled and punched the victim so hard to subdue her that, according to hospital officials, it could have killed her. He then proceeded to rape her for seven minutes.
Here we have a case of an illegal alien using nothing but his body to rape and almost murder a woman. Yet there is no soul-searching about how to better detect and remove criminal aliens. The politicians focus on guns, not criminals, including those who would never be enticed to remain here if not for sanctuary cities.
Then, there is a new attempted rape of a 12-year-old, allegedly committed by a Guatemalan national while his wife was giving birth to a baby who will get “birthright” citizenship.
