Student Visa Recipient Allegedly Rapes Underage Girl
A Chinese national in the United States on a student visa has been arrested and charged with the rape of an underage girl.
“A UC Irvine student is being held on $1 million bond accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl and threatening to share details of the attack on social media,” said Fox11.
The suspect, 20-year-old Gaoyang “Gary” Li, was reportedly arrested at Los Angeles International Airport. Police believe he was attempting to flee to his native China.
“The investigation began on Jan. 29, 2019, when the 16-year-old victim told police that Li forced her to perform oral sex and then demanded money under the threat that he would post a video of the sexual assault on social media and send it to the victim’s friends and family,” according to the report.
According to police, Li is also a suspect in another sexual battery case. He is being held on a $1 million bond.
The alleged crime occurred during a stalemate in Washington, D.C. over meaningful immigration reform. While illegal immigration is the main focus, reforming the visa process is an often-overlooked discussion topic in relation to the immigration debate as a whole.

President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.
In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, 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.
