Sanctuary Montgomery County: Two illegal aliens in Maryland raped 11-year-old girl

Both were known to ICE. One was a “repeat immigration violator.”

Montgomery County, Maryland gave them a safe haven to hide from authorities. Shameful.

From WJLA: Two undocumented immigrants illegal aliens are accused of raping an 11-year-old girl on different occasions, the common denominator being a friendship with the victim’s older brother.

Montgomery County Police have arrested Mauricio Barrera-Navidad, 29, of Damascus, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, of Gaithersburg, and charged each with second-degree rape.

Last month, the victim — now 12-years-old — spoke with a social worker at her middle school in Germantown. Talking through tears, the girl shared the painful details about what both men allegedly did to her.

In September 2018, the victim was introduced to her older brother’s friend, Palacios-Amaya. Over the course of the next few months, the then 27-year-old man raped the middle schooler on multiple occasions, authorities allege. The victim recalled one instance where Palacios-Amaya “used his cell phone to video record the two of them having sex,” police noted in court documents.

The victim told the social worker that Palacios-Amaya would often pressure her not to attend school so that she could stay home while her parents were at work. That gave Palacios-Amaya unsupervised access to the girl.

Investigators say while reviewing the victim’s cell phone, they located numerous photographs of Palacios-Amaya with the girl.

The other suspect, Barrera-Navidad, reportedly attended the victim’s older brother’s birthday party on July 2018. The celebration took place at a mobile home park in Germantown.

At one point in the evening, Barrera-Navidad and the 11-year-old victim entered a bedroom. According to police, Barrera-Navidad raped the girl and then continued to communicate with her via cell phone for an undisclosed period of time thereafter.

According to court documents, Barrera-Navidad was born in El Salvador, has four children and works for a demolition company. Up until his arrest, he was residing at his brother-in-law’s home along the 25900 block of Largo Court in Damascus.

Montgomery County District Court Judge Sherri Koch granted Barrera-Navidad a $100,000 (post 10 percent) bond. He remains incarcerated while awaiting trial.

Less biographical information is presently known about Palacios-Amaya, but Montgomery County District Court Judge Eric Nee denied him bond, perhaps because Palacios-Amaya is charged with four rape counts while Barrera-Navidad is charged with one.

Up until his arrest, Palacios-Amaya was residing along the 18300 block of Quondal Court in Gaithersburg.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement tells ABC7 that Barrera-Navidad and Palacios-Amaya are both living in the country illegally.

In December 2016, an immigration judge issued Barrera-Navidad a “final order of removal.” It’s unclear why the Salvadoran national remained in the country.

In 2014, federal authorities removed Palacios-Amaya from the U.S. for an undisclosed reason. The 28-year-old — who ICE referred to as a “repeat immigration violator” — returned to the U.S. on an unknown date.

MS-13 gang member sentenced to 40 years for brutal killing of 15-year-old girl

From Fox News: A female member of MS-13 was sentenced to 40 years in prison Friday in the brutal killing of a 15-year-old girl.

Venus Romero Iraheta, 18, was convicted of murder in January 2018 in the 2017 slaying of Damaris Reyes Rivas.

She pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, abduction and criminal street participation earlier this year at the court Fairfax County, Virginia.

Prosecutors said Iraheta was one of the 10 MS-13 members and associates who met Damaris at Lake Accotink Park in Fairfax County, seeking revenge for the murder of her boyfriend, Christian Sosa Rivas. Reyes Rivas was a student at Watkins Mill High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Earlier this year, an interrogation video recorded on Valentine’s Day 2017 showing her confessing to the crime.

Through a translator, Iraheta said she told Reyes Rivas: “‘You’re going to remember me until the day we see each other in hell. Don’t forget my name.’ And I told her my full name and I told her my nickname. And I told it to her and I told her to never forget who I was. I told her, ‘Someday, we were going to see each other again.’”

When an officer asked what happened next, Iraheta replied in English: “I killed her.”

Iraheta said she stabbed Reyes Rivas about 13 times with a knife and sliced off one of her tattoos. The Washington Post reported another MS-13 associated stabbed her with a tree branch. The brutal slaying was recorded on a cellphone video and the court was shown the footage. Her body was eventually discovered after it was dumped under a highway overpass on the outskirts of Washington, D.C.

Maria Reyes, Reyes Rivas’ mother, told Iraheta in court Friday that the woman “destroyed” her life, the Washington Post reported.

“I want to say to this young lady that she destroyed my life. She destroyed the life of my daughter. She didn’t owe anything to you,” she told Iraheta through a translator. “My daughter is not in hell, as she said. She’s in heaven. She has shown me that in my dreams. . . . Hell will be lived by you, not by her.”

NBC Washington reported Iraheta cried in court, saying she would “give my life to bring her back. I am sorry.”
