An illegal alien charged with raping a 10-year-old girl who later traveled to Indiana for an abortion successfully evaded deportation from the United States for years.
As Breitbart News reported, 27-year-old illegal alien Gerson Fuentes has been arrested and charged with raping a 10-year-old girl who then became pregnant. The girl’s case was later cited by President Joe Biden and the establishment media after she traveled to Indiana from Ohio to have an abortion on June 30 at six weeks and three days pregnant.
Fuentes, according to his attorney, has lived in the United States for at least seven years and worked at a cafe in Columbus, Ohio.
In a statement to Breitbart News, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official said the agency had not previously encountered Fuentes and that he had “no previous immigration history.”
The ICE statement suggests that Fuentes likely arrived in the United States after successfully crossing the southern border without having been detected by Border Patrol agents. Every month, tens of thousands of illegal aliens enter the U.S. the same way.
The immigration enforcement failure speaks to a larger problem for the federal government, as millions of illegal aliens live in the U.S. without ever being encountered by ICE agents or deported. Their whereabouts are often unknown to agents.
