Ten-Time Deported Illegal Convicted of Raping North Carolina Woman
In late August, a 10-time deported felon from El Salvador was convicted of a violent sex crime in a North Carolina court.
“U.S. District Court Senior Judge W. Earl Britt sentenced 54-year-old Jose Alfonso Rodriguez-Garcia to nine years and seven months in prison for illegal re-entry of an aggravated felon, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina, announced Thursday evening,” according to Washington Examiner.
The report said that Rodriguez-Garcia was arrested in 2017 and charged with second-degree forcible rape in North Carolina’s Wake County.
Rodriguez-Garcia pleaded guilty to the rape in May.
The illegal alien also had a long rap sheet that included convictions for prior felonies for which he had been deported.
“He had been previously found guilty of burglary, receiving stolen property, grand theft from a person, theft, attempt to distribute a controlled substance, resisting a public officer, trespassing, possession of controlled substances, auto theft, evading arrest, assault on a female, deported alien found in the United States, illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien, and illegal re-entry by a previously deported aggravated felon,” the report said.
Robert J. Higdon, Jr., United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina made the following statement, posted to the Department of Justice website:
“For years, Jose Alfonso Rodriguez-Garcia disregarded the laws of the United States having been previously deported ten times and racking up conviction after convictions including assault and narcotics offenses. With this 115 month sentence, the American citizens, and in particular those of the Eastern District, are safer today because it has put a stop to Rodriguez-Garcia’s treating our borders as a revolving door.”
If only there were a measure that could be taken to keep violent criminal illegals off of American streets. Perhaps a wall at the Southern border is in order.
