Catch-and-release of criminal aliens dooms 15-year-old girl

From the Commercial Appeal:
Maury County deputies and federal agents are looking for a man who is accused of raping a 15-year-old girl only hours after being released from jail. Juan Villa, 24, has been in the Maury County Jail 11 times since 2001 on charges of assault, public intoxication, driving without a license and contempt of court.

He was released from jail on $1,000 bail on Friday at about 9:45 p.m. and is suspected of raping the 15-year-old shortly after midnight. During the investigation, a 13-year-old girl also told deputies she was raped by Villa, Sheriff Enoch George said.

Villa is suspected of being in the country illegally and George said the department had contacted Immigration and Customs Enforcement about him before he was released from jail but the federal agents said they would deal with him later.

Villa should have been deported the first time he was jailed, much less the 10 times after that. But our criminal alien apologists want their cheap lettuce, so their enablers in INS/ICE (as well as Congress and the White House) have a 15-year-old girl's lost innocence as their trophy.
