Previously Deported Illegal Charged with More Than 100 Child Sex Crimes in Louisiana
An illegal alien living in Louisiana who had previously been deported form the United States was charged with more than 100 child sex crimes.
“Miguel Martinez, 44, illegally residing in Harvey, was arrested on 100 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles under the age of 13 years old, one count of production under the age of 13, and one count of sexual battery of a juvenile under the age of 13,” according to KALB.
Martinez had been deported in 2005 and is already a registered sex offender in California, indicating that he had committed such crimes before.
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry took aim at lawmakers in Washington, D.C., which has not addressed the open borders crisis due to gridlock and partisan bickering.
“This arrest should serve as a wake-up call to Congress,” he reportedly said. “By not securing our borders and properly vetting those coming into our Nation, we have seen lives lost and destroyed. Illegal immigration has real-life consequences – countless numbers of needless crime victims, including too many Louisiana families and children. For their sake – I again urge Congress to realize the national emergency we have at our Southern border, support President Trump, build the wall, and help us make our communities safer.”
President Donald J. Trump has not been able to achieve his campaign goal of building a wall at the Southern border.
As illegal border crossings surge, Democrats blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget. President Donald J. Trump declared a National Emergency to address the issue, with plans to diver Department of Defense funding for the project, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration.
In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former House Speaker Paul Ryan, current House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.
