Unless you're a true news junkie, you probably missed the outrageous story of the illegal alien who tried to sexually molest an infant. The crime took place in Florida last Saturday, but got scant media coverage. That's partly because there was so much other news – terrorists beheading children in Iraq, a Missouri town engulfed in the flames of race hatred, and a beloved celebrity taking his own life. Also, the media generally has great sympathy for illegal immigrants and isn't keen on covering stories that put illegals in a bad light.
But this immorality tale deserves attention. It serves as a sickening reminder of the immigration chaos that is devastating parts of America, especially the poorer precincts. 46-year-old Pompillo Alvarado Flores, a Honduran who is reportedly in this country illegally, was actually in the process of taking the diaper off of a sleeping infant, apparently intent on molesting the child. Fortunately, the baby's parents caught this demented fiend in the act and the dad chased him down the street with a machete.
Pompillo Alvarado Flores is lucky that the cops got to him before the irate father; he is in jail and faces a possible life sentence. We don't yet know the details of Flores' background, but logic dictates that the guy has done this sort of thing before. Perverts don't usually begin molesting infants at age 46. So why was he here in America, yet another bad guy preying on children?
Meanwhile, four illegals in California were just charged with kidnapping a woman and tying her up for two days without food and water. One of the kidnappers has been deported to Mexico at least three times, but keeps finding her way back to the states, where the livin' and thievin' is easy.
If you're a Factor regular, you may have seen last week's interview with Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son Brandon was killed by yet another illegal alien, 42-year-old Raul Corona. Corona had been arrested for burglary and assaulting a police officer in Colorado, but a judge there sentenced him to probation. Probation! The guy wasn't even deported. Three months ago, the drunken Corona drove the wrong way on an Arizona highway and smashed head-on into Brandon Mendoza's car, killing the young man.
Mrs. Mendoza has written an angry letter to President Obama, asking why Corona was not sent back to his home country of Mexico long ago. "I am furious," she wrote, "that the Federal Government allowed this criminal to stay in this country and KILL my son!" Mary Ann Mendoza probably won't get a response because there is simply nothing to say. So she has begun a crusade for laws that would make it easier to deport illegal alien criminals, the thugs who are inexplicably allowed to remain here in the land of the free, the home of the ever-less-brave.
These are not cherry-picked, isolated incidents. The Center for Immigration Studies has obtained documents that reveal some disturbing facts. Last year federal officials released thousands of illegals who had committed crimes. Most were minor beefs, but nearly 200 had been convicted of murder, more than 400 of sexual assault. The rogues gallery also included lots of drunk drivers, car thieves, and assorted other felons.
These dangerous criminals could have been detained, but the feds turned them loose and expected them to come back for deportation hearings. One Texas Congressman described the situation this way: "This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the president and perpetrated by our own immigration officials."
When an illegal alien commits a crime, any crime, he should be on the next plane out of here. Unless it's a felony, in which case the perp needs to be thrown in prison. You don't give them probation and let them walk, that is absolutely insane! But it happens way, way too often.
Yes, we all know that the vast majority of undocumented workers are good, hard-working people who are trying to help their families. But there has to be absolutely zero tolerance for criminal illegal aliens. They must go. Go home, or go to jail. Those are the only two options.
