    Just another example of Illegals crossing the border & are responsible for major crimes across the board plus there are Millions more of these Thugs on the way so expect the worst as time goes by, the Invasion of America has been going on for years now & the Illegal Mexicans will conquer America without firing a shot with the Help of the Un-American Democrats….

    The article doesn’t specifically say this POS is in the country illegally, but most of us can read between the lines. JRNANCE is right, we have been invaded by the enemy, multiple enemies, in fact. Some in government believe it’s a wonderful idea to offer ‘citizenship for service’ in our military. Just what we need; MORE anti-American muslims and foreigners in our military to put OUR OWN sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters in harm’s way. Obama has also rolled out the welcome mat for thousands of illegal alien ‘unaccompanied minors’. These cast-off children from Mexico and parts unknown are being forced upon the American taxpayer to feed, clothe, house, and educate until their illegal alien adults can get here at which point we can be responsible for their health and well being, too. No telling how many will be like this pervert. I, for one, am sick and tired of it, disgusted by them and their supporters, and MAD AS HELL.

      “Read between the lines…” or, in your case, create the logical fallacy of hasty generalization. You’re jumping to conclusions with no facts whatsoever. Common strategy for the ignorant. Further display of your ignorance comes in the idea that Obama has opened the border. Know any Latinos? Obviously not, and if you did, you’d know the current administration is unpopular because MORE undocumented workers have been deported under this administration than ANY of the prior administrations. Oh, and just so you know, Bush’s immigration reform, Prop. 187, allowed for a fast-track path to citizenship if one had been here illegally for 7 years or more. The ONLY factual statement you seem to make is that you are angry. That is obvious. But mad and stupid are a dangerous combination, so please, either A. Seek some sort of anger management/medication, or B. Further your education. I guess there is a third option–just shut up.

    You people are just ingnorant, they are white and African Americans doing the same to child’s, the race doesn’t matter at all, the only true Americans are the American Indians. .so if you are not an American Indian, call your self an immigrant

      Oh that’s right, call the American ‘ignorant’. But one thing is certain….THIS particular POS wouldn’t have committed this particular crime in this particular country on this particular victim IF our laws were being enforced against these filthy disgusting illegal alien predator invaders. It’s bad enough when an American pervert strikes, but what’s even worse is when the sonofabi*ch is an illegal alien over here molesting kids, raping and killing, drunk driving, etc….. MAD AS HELL and I’m sick of it!

    What has his legal status got to do with what happened to the kid?? White/American Mother and fathers and or boyfriends have been in the news hot and heavy for months on sexualy abusing their own kids, and in some cases, killing them. So I don’t think him being here illegally or not is relevant..must have missed it in the article where it stated he was here illegal … 😕
