I really don't get why immigration is being dragged into this discussion. It's moot. The logic people are proposing is that either:
1) all Mexicans are murderous rapists, or;
2) all illegal immigrants are murderous rapists.
If this is held up as an excuse to deport all illegals, there must not be better arguments to make than 1 in such-and-such number are rapists,
thieves, murderers or drunk drivers. I wonder how many ruff-and-tumble Irish or Italian immigrants from the 1890s raped or murdered when they got
The point I'm making is that you can't hold this up as an example of why illegal immigration is bad (I can give much better examples based on the
overall population and social stats to show that). Pointing out random things like this is polarizing.
From an anecdotal perspective, I've known illegals all my life - personal friends, family members, former coworkers, classmates, acquaintances - from
Mexico, Haiti, Poland, Czech Republic, Jamaica and Brazil...none were rapists or murderers...ok, so I can't speak specifically for the acquaintances,
but since we're talking friends of friends, the gossip would get back to me if something happened.
My point is, that from where I'm sitting, that argument doesn't hold water (that illegals are inherently bad people). This guy? Yeah, messed up...I
only hope the teenager does not develop a sexual stigma from this (ie, could have prevented it if she had sex with that man). Aside from the trauma of
loosing her mom in front of her eyes, the unjustifiable guilt could lead her down an unsafe path and I hope she gets serious therapy for that!
