Here’s a prime example of why Governor Kaine’s refusal to have the Commonwealth enter into the Section 287(g) program is so troubling: Overnight on Sunday evening, Prince William County Police arrested two illegal aliens suspected in a
rape sexual assault that happened on Carter Lane in Woodbridge. One of these illegals had previously been deported, which makes his presence in the United States a felony. Since the Prince William County Adult Detention Center participates in the Section 287(g) program, and their MOU with ICE allows officers to act in cases of felony sex assault, both of these illegal aliens will be processed for deportation.
Had these individuals been arrested by the State Police and held by the Virginia Department of Corrections, the illegal alien which had previously been deported probably would be picked up by ICE. The other would likely have not, and been added to the Virgina Sex Offender Registry, and released back into the community. Here’s a real, live example of how Governor Kaine’s intransigence is endangering us all.
Also of note is how the Manassas Journal-Messenger has done such a good job of reporting this. They covered a house break-in in today’s edition, as well as a resisting arrest incident. But since this was a case of illegal aliens preying on Prince William County residents, we get silence.
UPDATE: Additional information has been released by the Prince William County Police Department, that is clearly stating that this was not a rape. Here’s the report:
On August 27, 2007, at approximately 1:12 a.m., The Prince William County Police Department investigated a sexual assault complaint in the 1600 block of Carter Lane in Woodbridge. The 18-year-old female victim from Manassas reported to police that she was walking with a 17-year-old male acquaintance from Woodbridge, when they were attacked by a group of suspects. The victims observed that they were being followed and
attempted to get into their vehicle when the suspects attacked them and prevented them from driving away. Both victims reported that during the assault the female victim was grabbed, pulled away, and thrown to the ground. The female victim reported that she was pinned to the ground and inappropriately touched. The male victim reported that he was punched by the suspects during the struggle. Both victims were able to get away without injuries and call the police. Arrested were Jose Ramirez, 18, and Porfirio Ramirez-Baca, 34, both residing at 1621 Carter Lane. Both subjects have been charged with Assault and Battery (2x), Abduction With Intent To Defile (2X). Ramirez and Ramirez-Baca were held without bond. Ramirez and Ramirez-Baca have been scheduled to appear in court on October 9, 2007, for the charges involving the 18-year-old female victim. They are pending a hearing in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court involving the male juvenile victim.
