Illegal Immigration and Crime: Mexican Rapist Escapes to US for Two Years

Here’s another example of the connection between illegal immigration and crime.

A Mexcian national committed committed at rape in 2011 and was charged in 2013 when he decided to flee to the U.S.  It seems he was deported once in 2013, but re-entered our nation less than a month later until he caught and in September.

First, how safe does it make you feel that a rapist was freely roaming the American countryside for two years?  Second, considering the violent nature of his crime, what is the  chance he was a model citizen in America while he was on the lamb?

Illegal Immigration and Crime : Tiburicio Juarez Chavez wanted for rape

SAN DIEGO – A Mexican national, who is wanted in his native country for aggravated rape, was handed over to Mexican law enforcement officials by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Thursday.

Tiburicio Juarez Chavez, 28, formerly of Encinitas, was transferred by San Diego-based officers from the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Special Response Team to the custody of representatives from Mexican Procuraduria General de la Republica (PGR) and Mexican immigration officials at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Juarez is charged in an arrest warrant issued in June with an aggravated rape committed in Oaxaca, Mexico, in May 2013.

According to Mexican authorities, on Jan. 21, 2011, Juarez arrived at the victim’s house carrying a rifle. Juarez refused to leave the home, forced his way in, and threatened to kill the victim. Chavez then pushed the victim on to a bed and raped her. When neighbors heard the struggle, they rushed to the victim’s home, but Juarez fled the scene.

On Aug. 30, after receiving information from Interpol that Juarez was wanted in Mexico for aggravated rape, ERO officers in San Diego lodged an immigration detainer with the San Diego County Jail where Juarez was detained. According to immigration records, Juarez was issued an expedited removal order on April 11, 2013 by U.S. Border Patrol agents. He illegally re-entered the U.S. April 30, 2013.

On Sept. 2, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department released Juarez to ICE. ERO reinstated his prior removal order, paving the way for his repatriation to Mexico Thursday.
