Illegal alien of the day

Reynaldo E. Rapalo

Story from FOXNews:
A man accused of sexually assaulting seven girls and women was recaptured late Monday, nearly a week after escaping from jail by rappelling down the building on bed sheets, police said.

Local and federal authorities had been scouring neighborhoods, airports, train stations and ports for Rapalo, a 34-year-old Honduran.

The inability to catch the rapist terrified women and the parents of young girls across the Little Havana area. One victim was 79 years old. Three others were young girls who were attacked in the span of four weeks. An 11-year-old was raped as she arrived home from school.

Story from Sun-Sentinel:
Rewards totaling $16,000 were offered for information leading to Rapalo's arrest, including $10,000 offered by the FBI. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were also involved in the manhunt for Rapalo, who is originally from Honduras.

From America's Most Wanted:
Reynaldo Rapalo, a Honduran citizen whose visa had expired, was arrested Septmeber 19, 2003 after terrorizing the Miami community.

You have to pull teeth to find out that this guy is an illegal alien. Most of the media used variations of the AP report where the most they said was that he was a Honduran. I guess that extra fact that he shouldn't have been in this country to rape 11 year olds as they walk home from schools isn't important.

Another good example of why anchor babies are a bad thing. Yeah yeah, he might not have any kids born in the U.S. but I want him out of our country before he has a chance to.

While someone might think that most illegals are very nice people just looking for a chance, they are ALL criminals. NONE of them respect our laws and don't deserve to be here. I'd say the same thing about an Englishman or German. This subject has nothing to do with the color of someone's skin.

Kick 'em all out if they aren't here legally.

Well said. How many lives have to be ruined by this epidemic before we start taking our immigration laws seriously?

Let me know if I am wrong, but my understanding is that he was legal when he committed the crimes, but his visa expired while he was awaiting trial and so he is now an illegal. But they want him to do his time, after which he will be deported.
