Editor’s Note – The Illegals Crime Report looks at crimes committed in the United States at the hands of those who shouldn’t be in the country.
Week of December 12 – December 17
Several Aliens Arrested for Child Sex Trafficking
Six males who are believed to be undocumented immigrants from Guatemala were arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing children. Law enforcement officials were alerted to the crime after a juvenile escaped from the residence where she was being held for sex trafficking and called 911. Police say she provided information that allowed them to start an investigation.
After executing a search warrant at the dwelling on Nov. 29, law enforcement was able to seize multiple items of evidence that are believed to tie into the assault of the child victim. All six adults living in the home were arrested. Esler Hugo Rivera, 33, Rolando Corado Gonzalez, 28, Avelino Sarceno-Sarceno, 40, Ember Rivera, 37, Noe Bautista-Martinez, 28, and Evis Amabilio Garcia-Rivera, 31, were arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault.
Garcia-Rivera is suspected of trafficking the female. The suspects are being held at Green Lake County Correctional Facility with bonds varying from $20,000 to $50,000.
Illegal Immigrant Child Rapist on the Loose
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) is asking the public for help to help locate a man wanted on numerous charges, including crimes against a child. Javier Rubio Chavez, 27, was wearing a court-ordered electronic monitoring device on his ankle as a condition of a pre-trial release, but he was able to cut and remove the equipment, and escape.
Chavez is wanted for four counts of indecent liberties with a child, statutory rape, statutory sex offense on a child, and damage to and interfering with an electronic monitoring device. He was last seen near the 3900 block of Winterfield Place, off Central Avenue in east Charlotte. Anyone with information is urged to call 911, Crime Stoppers, or CMPD’s Electronic Monitoring Unit.
What’s ICE Been Doing?
From time to time, we need to give a shout out to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which suffers extreme criticism from the left. The federal agency isn’t only tasked with fighting the illegal immigrant crisis, although that is a feat all of its own, it also battles against drug and sex trafficking, and other major crimes. In the news this past week:
- A twice-removed Salvadoran national was sentenced to 30 months in federal custody. Jose Ruiz-Alvarado, 52, was indicted in February for illegal re-entry after being arrested by ICE for immigration violations.
- Smugglers operated “stash houses” – locations where illegal goods or migrants are held – in Houston, TX. Albino Vargas-Hernandez, 48, an illegal alien from Mexico, and Rene Camacho, 47, a U.S. citizen, pleaded guilty on Dec. 12 to conspiracy to transport and harbor illegal aliens. Hiram Lamarca-Gonzalez, a 21-year-old Mexican national, also pleaded guilty earlier this month.
- Olga Marina Franco del Cid, 35, an illegal alien from Guatemala, was previously convicted in 2008 for the criminal vehicle deaths of four schoolchildren in Minnesota. She was later deported but returned. She was indicted on December 13 in federal court on three counts related to identity theft and illegal re-entry after deportation.
While ICE may be vilified as an agency that seeks to deprive poor souls of a chance at a new life, the reality is that it protects both Americans and immigrants from harsh and terrible crimes.
