According to Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser, Jairo Rosas hid in the victim’s trunk while she was at work Monday evening at a fast food restaurant on Wrightsboro Road.

After the woman dropped off her co-workers, Rosas jumped out of the trunk and drove the victim to an isolated area off Dixon Airline Road where he raped her, Dresser said.

Investigators said Rosas has children with the victim’s sister.

He was booked into the Richmond County Jail on Tuesday on charges of kidnapping and rape. He is also being held for U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

Need we say more about closing the borders. I understand American citizens also commit these crimes but here is one that could have been prevented.

Obama wants to give him amnesty. And yes, put him in jail, but send the bill to Mexico.

You can't deport a father of

You can't deport a father of young children. That's not the kind of family values we support here in the Obama regime. Have him pay a $30 fine and send him back to be a father to his children for goodness sake.
