Miguel Paloalto Lucas
On June 15, police in Bridegeton arrested Miguel Paloalto Lucas, 24, after he allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old girl at the America’s Best Value Inns and Suites on Pennridge Drive.
The Mexican national has been charged with statutory rape and statutory sodomy and is currently being held in the St. Louis County Jail on an immigration detainer.
Of course, the aforementioned case is merely one in a seemingly never-ending series of such tragedies attributed to suspects who have entered this country illegally.
-On June 18, police in Pittsburgh charged Ignacio Saldano-Rivera, 32, with aggravated sexual assault after he allegedly assaulted a six-month-old baby.
Saldano-Rivera has been in jail since June 8, after he was arrested on a domestic violence charge.
Camp County Sheriff Alan McCandless told newsjournal.com: “The arrest stemmed from an assault that occurred the night before, when a female victim alleged that she caught Mr. Saldana-Rivera sexually assaulting a 6-month-old baby. An arrest warrant was issued for him for the assault, and he was placed in jail on those two charges, which are misdemeanors.”
Detectives found sufficient evidence to charge Saldano-Rivera with the sexual assault and now believe a second child may have been assaulted as well.
Saldana-Rivera is in the country illegally and is currently being held at the Camp County Jail on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer.
-In April 2012, Jose Luis Hernandez-Dominguez, 47, was sentenced in an Hawaii courtroom to 10 years in prison for the repeated sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl.
Hernandez-Dominguez, who is in the country illegally from Mexico, recently pleaded no contest to second-degree sexual assault after the girl reported the abuse to her mother.
Before sentencing, prosecuting attorney Robert Rivera explained: “He (Hernandez-Dominguez) told her, ‘If you tell your mom, the police will come and get you.’ And that caused this 5-year-old girl to remain silent and go through these sexual assaults that this man perpetrated on her week after week after week.”
The victim in this case, as well as her family is also in the country illegally.
The attacks reportedly took place between January and October of last year.
The Maui News reports that Hernandez-Dominguez’s wife was baby sitting the little girl, which provided him with access to her. in nearby Troy, police arrested Juan Domingo Francisco-Esteban, 24, after he allegedly participated in a gang rape of a 14-year-old girl.
Through an interpreter, Hernandez-Dominguez told the court that though he did molest the girl and had been on Maui illegally for the last six years, he also has a wife and an 11-year-old daughter who would suffer if he was sent to prison.
Hernandez-Dominguez then actually asked only to be placed on probation for his crimes.
So why does the crime of child molestation seem to be so prevalent among illegal aliens from Mexico?
The answer may lie within the age-old Mexican culture of 'machismo,' as well as within the actual laws of that country.
The crime of rape or child molestation is incredibly under-reported in Mexico, because there is so much shame placed upon the victim as well as the difficulty in proving the case.
A 2002 Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post article, reporter Mary Jordan detailed the case of a 16 year old Mexican girl who had reported being raped by three policemen in 1997.
When Yessica Yadira Diaz Cazares and her mother went to the police station to report the rape, she was laughed at by the officers and actually jailed overnight.
Diaz was forced by police to undergo a medical exam as well as a total of eight blood tests. She was told that the blood tests would determine whether or not she had actually been raped. Prosecutors told the girl that she must physically put her hand on the men who raped her, courageously she proceeded even as the family received death threats.
The accused officer laughed at her and verbally abused the girl as she identified him as an attacker. Eventually, Yessica realized that justice would never be served and simply gave up. Sadly, she not only gave up her search for justice but her life as well. Despondent, she committed suicide by taking an overdose of prescription pills.
After Yessica´s death, the national human rights commission pursued the case, resulting in the conviction of two of the accused officers.
The crime of kidnapping a woman for the purpose of rape and marriage against their will, or 'rapto' as it is known in Mexico is actually a minor crime and rarely ever prosecuted. A Mexican legislator actually called the practice "romantic." Of course, this crime if committed in the United States would elicit felony charges and a penalty of 20 years to life in prison.
While rape is a serious crime in the United States, many Mexican nationals cannot understand why they are prosecuted on this side of the border. Often, a small payment of $10 to $20 to the victim´s family will settle the matter back in Mexico.
The most troubling and telling reason behind the growing epidemic of child molestation at the hands of Mexican illegal aliens, is the fact the age of sexual consent throughout the majority of Mexico is 12 years of age!
The only other nation in the world which boasts such a disregard for childhood innocence is Zimbabwe, where the age of consent is also 12.
Article 177 of the Mexican Federal District Penal Code discusses "sexual abuse" and punishment of other acts referred to as "unintentional" acts –"who without purpose of reaching copulation, performs a sexual act with a person under 12 or a person that has no capacity of understanding the meaning of the act or that for any reason cannot resist it, or that demands that such act is observed or performed, will be punished with 2 to 7 years in prison".
In addition to Mexico City, the age of consent is 12 years old in the following Mexican states:
-Baja California Sur
-San Louis Potosi
The age of consent is 13 years old in Nuevo Leon and 14 years old in the seven remaining Mexican states.
The attitude towards having sex with little girls is carried with many Mexican men as they cross into this country.
An example of this attitude can be found in Mexican national Diego Lopez-Mendez, who pled guilty in 2006 to sexually assaulting a 10-year-old West Virginia girl. Through an interpreter, he told the court: "In the pueblo where I grew up girls are usually married by 13 years old….I was unaware of the nature of the offense or that it was a bad crime."
In order to bring charges of rape in most Mexican states, the law requires that the girl prove that she is a virgin, and that the charge of statutory rape be dropped if the rapist wishes to marry his victim.
Of course, when discussing the issue of illegal immigration, this dirty little secret is never discussed by our politicians, nor is the impact that such an attitude towards the abuse of children could have on this nation by offering amnesty to millions of Mexican nationals.
