Local media reports that a Guatemalan migrant housed by a local refugee charity was arrested after entering the room of another refugee and groping her under her clothes.
Francisco Maldonado Tojin, a Guatemalan migrant housed by the refugee charity Annunciation House in El Paso, Texas, was arrested after he was found by charity workers in the room of a female migrant, groping her, as she tried to bathe her child.
Police said she was bathing her child when she saw Tojin, whom she doesn’t know, in the room. Police said the door had been left unlocked so that volunteer workers could freely walk in and out of the room.
Tojin was allegedly told to leave but he surprised the victim by groping her under her clothing and pressed himself against her in a lewd manner. As volunteers responded to the woman’s screams, Tojin ran out of the room, police said.
They said he was found in his motel room, where he too had been placed by Annunciation House, along with his 6-year-old son.
The migrant was housed in a Budget Inn Motel in El Paso, where Annunciation House has provided housing to some of the “hundreds of processed immigrants were dropped off unexpectedly in downtown El Paso.”
Annunciation House’s website says it has been “accompanying the migrant, homeless and economically vulnerable people of the border since 1978.”
It is worth noting this attack happened on the same day President Donald Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office on the crisis at the southern border.
“This is just common sense,” President Trump said of the Wall.
“The federal government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only: because Democrats will not fund border security.”
“The only solution is for Democrats to pass a spending bill…This situation could be solved with a 45-minute meeting,” Trump said, noting that he has invited Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer back to the White House Wednesday.
“This is a choice between Right and Wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to our citizens who we serve,” Trump said.
The left remains unwilling to address the escalating crisis, with California Democrats conspicuously silent on the American lives lost due to the porous border.
