And this young man would likely have been a beneficiary of the DREAM (nightmare) act that both Senators Webb and Warner voted for this week, had it passed in time:
On April 9, the woman called police to report that her foster son had just raped her at knife point. The victim was able to leave the house and call 911, after telling Lopez that she had to get to work.
Lopez had been living on the streets of Richmond for just three days, when he was placed in the foster home in 2009. He turned 18 just five days before the brutal assault.
The Mexican national told detectives he simply walked across the border and took a bus to Richmond, Va.
Go figure. Are they really placing illegal aliens in foster care rather than deporting them?
