Father Of Accused Teen Rapist, Arrested And Will Likely Be Deported
There’s been some political controversy in the news over an arrest that happened in Maryland last week. An 18-year-old was arrested along with another 17-year-old for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl in a bathroom stall at a Rockville high school. Both of the males were in a program at the school for non-English speakers and argue the encouter was “consensual”.
The older male, Henry Sanchez-Milian came to the United States illegally, according to sources. He trekked for four weeks and was picked up by the U.S. Border Patrol along the Mexico border in Texas, the Washington Post reported Sanchez-Milian’s lawyer as saying.
Like Sanchez Milian, his father Adolfo Sanchez-Reyes is also an immigrant, who had been living in the US before his son. ICE agents arrested the father in Friday, unexpectedly. Trump’s administration is using this incident as an example of why there needs to be a crackdown on immigration in the U.S.
According to the New York Times, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said the rape case showed the need for the president’s restrictive immigration position.
“Immigration pays its toll on our people if it’s done — if it’s not done legally,” Mr. Spicer said. “And this is another example, and it’s why the president is so passionate about this.”
Do you think it’s fair to deport the father in this case?
