Opened a Northern Virginia newspaper this morning and there was a Rafael Arteaga, associate pastor of St. Mark's Lutheran Church (not a Hispanic church) arrested for forcible sodomy of a 4-year-old girl. Although his English was good enough for him to have been an associate pastor since Sept. 2001, he nevertheless was provided with a translator at taxpayer expense. They are trying to say he is not competent to stand trial. Yet competent to be a minister?
Next to this article was one about a Jose L. Mercado-Jordan just arrested for rape, sodomy and two counts of aggravated sexual battery involving an 8-year-old girl.
Think about how people in the Philippines or Thailand regard Americans when it comes to this topic. I'm not part of the "hate America" team, but this is one particular area where we don't rate at all well. Partly it's just due to our wealth, which enables our pervs to provide massive patronage of child-perv industries in countries with limited resources for enforcement. Americans (along with other Westerners) are a major part of this "tourism". But we've also got plenty of homegrown sickos -- mostly the less wealthy ones -- who stay right here and do their thing. Our own law enforcement agencies have done massive round-ups of these pervs who were identified via their Internet activities, and most are American born.
The most serious problem that illegal immigrants are importing is violent gangs, most of which are built around an illegal drug trafficking. Think MS13. And of course, the stream of al-Qaeda-affiliated operatives who slip in unnoticed -- as we studiously ignore the mobs of illegals who are crossing for strictly economic reasons, lots of people who want to be studiously ignored are crossing along with the mobs, but for much more nefarious reasons.
