An illegal alien has been sentenced to decades in prison for the rape of three women after an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer request, which would have had him deported, was ignored by Illinois officials.
“Miguel C. Luna, 37, a Mexican national who was living in Joliet, was given the maximum sentence of 80 years in prison on Monday after he admitted last May to the physical and sexual assaults of two women who were running on a state trail in separate incidents in 2015 and 2016. Luna also admitted to raping a third woman who has since died,” according to Fox News.
During the sentencing, Judge David Carlson blasted the lawless officials who ignored ICE’s fugitive warrant for his arrest.
“You shouldn’t have been in this country,” he said. “The system let the victims down in this case. You were free to do these acts…whether through misguided political correctness or people who do not believe in laws or borders. One thing I can do with the sentence is show that the laws we believe in here, maybe this won’t happen again, maybe that’s a little bit of closure.”
Prior to sentencing, Luna claimed that he had been sexually assaulted as a child, and that that trauma caused him to commit his heinous crimes.
“Nothing gives you the right to impart that hurt, that pain, that damage to anyone else,” Carlson said.
Prosecutors argued that his attacks were no mere impulses, but rather premeditated and carefully planned. He reportedly wore surgical gloves to avoid leaving DNA evidence behind and a mask to conceal his face.
Luna confessed to the crimes on videotape and described his tactics to the police in vivid detail.
