Another Triumph of Border Security

Since our usual suspects were defending this as a job well done, they'll no doubt be popping up here to say this is as well.

The rest of us are likely to be outraged.

Immigrant database failed to detect suspect before rape of young girl

Salvador Portillo-Saravia, a member of the MS-13 street gang, was charged with raping an 8-year-old girl at her Fairfax County home last month. But he never should have been in Fairfax in the first place.

Federal officials deported Portillo-Saravia, of Sterling, to El Salvador in 2003, and he sneaked back in illegally. Now, officials are wondering why a much-touted federal program didn't catch him before the rape.

Four weeks before the crime, Portillo-Saravia was in the Loudoun County jail for public intoxication. That's when the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) program, called Secure Communities, should have identified him as an illegal immigrant and he should have been taken into custody.

Our Nation's borders are self evidently in the very best of hands.

MSM missed the errant Canadian militant cleric who was arrested as he scooted across the border last week also. It took the UK media to even take note of it.

I've often said (here, among other places) that we have the MEANS to provide security, we simply lack the WILL.

IMAO this is an impeachable offense. Especially since the vote illegal jury-manderer in chief fights against border security at every turn.

Don't count on ICE. Just before I retired, we had a 3x deported gang member execute a young officer while on a traffic stop. I say "execute" because after disabling the officer, he walked up and shot him in the head.

ICE said they'd look into it, seeing as the guy had been arrested and was being processed/deported a 4th time - only he never left the country - and the shooting followed shortly thereafter. During the "investigation" it was found that in reviewing the video recordings of the detention area documenting this guys 4th deportation the cameras suddenly went blank. Never heard another thing from ICE.

Bet anything, as in other cases, they issued a "ticket" with a date/time to appear in court for a "hearing". Then they act SURPRISED! when these people fail to show up.

The system worked!

Not to make light, though, of a really bad situation. That poor child suffered because of incompetence and politics.

Jim Addison:

Where are our resident lefties to tell us that illegal immigrant child rapists are just another part of the rich and varied quilt which makes up the rainbow fabric of American society blah blah blah, and to lecture us on our evident lack of multicultural sensitivity?

Celebrate diversity!
