    Another Illegal Criminal Sexually Abusing Children, seems like its almost everyday when 1 of these illegals are being arrested for sexually abusing children, the cops or parent should just shoot them on sight then they won’t ruin another innocent child’s life, the child will Never Ever get over this sexual situation no matter what anybody says…..like I said the girls father should have shot him, I don’t believe any jury would have convicted the father…..

    More ignorance from the peanut gallery. While this D-bag needs to be done in the old fashioned way (castration for starters), show me anywhere in the article where it says he is an illegal. Assuming he is because of his name is just pure ignorance. It shouldn’t matter. Anyone that does this deserves one and only one punishment (after the castration of course), banishment from this earth.

    illegal or not hes garbage, and to ease the confusion lets ship all the torrez, gomex, rodriguez back to where they came from and make America strong once again. if you don’t think they will ruin our country, look what shape theirs is in. there is a reason they flock here by the 1000s.

    I Don’t believe any person like “A man” can make America strong.
    Your brain isn’t in good conditions to understand that this country is made of immigrants.
    Take me back to Mexico but what about you?
    are you a native?
    Or are you just racist..?

    No matter the race ,color , legal, or illegal, man, or women it could be any one. They come in all shapes and forms along with color. He is a monster for what he did and he needs life in prison but you can’t blame the whole race on just this one.

    May God be with this family as they go through this difficult time and may this man be life in prison and the same done to him. This little girl has God and family with her as she will need them all. Lord please watch over them and help this little girl as she is going to need you more now then ever just stand by her and hold her in your arm for as long as she needs you. In Jesus name we pray AMEN.
