29-year-old Salvador Portillo-Saravia is a fugitive from justice, wanted for raping the 8-year-old daughter of an acquaintance on December 26th of last year. Portillo-Saravia is a native of El Salvador and a known member of MS-13 who just days before the alleged rape of the child was in a Loudoun County jail on public intoxication charges. Police claim that when they released him they didn’t know he was an illegal alien.
Authorities believe that while Portillo-Saravia and a friend were visiting a woman, reportedly the friend’s girlfriend, the fugitive sneaked into the child’s bedroom and sexually assaulted her. The woman and her boyfriend claim to have not heard the assault.
Portillo-Sarvia was deported in 2003 but he was not in the ICE database of criminal offenders. The police involved in the case are using that fact to shift the public ire from them to the federal government. However, ICE and the police are not the main problem in this case, or the hundreds like it. Portillo-Saravia is a member of one of the most violent criminal organizations in the world and had already re-entered the country after deportation. And it is doubtful that the victim of his rape was his first victim, especially given the fact that MS-13 members take pride in being known as rapists. MS-13 is known to use the motto Kill, Rape, Control.
Deporting individual gang members cannot stop the illegal alien driven crime waves we see in many cities.
The problem is not immigration, it’s importation. The Left, and some on the Right, have actively dismantled the two strongest defenses to imported violence: our insistence on immigrant assimilation and our exportation of American values abroad. The melting pot, once the crucible in which immigrant cultures were distilled into something beneficial to all Americans, has been replaced with the idea of multiculturalism and the idea of Pax Americana has been replaced with cultural relativism. In our arrogance we thought that these changes meant little, but our fellow Americans are being victimized daily by unassimilated aliens who bring with them cultures of misogyny and violence.
