Left Exploits Child’s Tragedy, Ignores Illegal Alien Who Raped Her

While the story of the 10-year-old Ohio girl who made national headlines for traveling to Indiana for an abortion after being raped remains in the headlines, the media would rather largely ignore the rest of the story—that the illegal alien suspectGerson Fuentes has been charged and arrested in connection to her rape.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement now has a detainer on Fuentes as information continues to filter in about how he managed to evade immigration enforcement while working at a cafe and living illegally in Columbus’ Northwest side.

After the child identified the suspect in a line, police arrested Fuentes and he admitted to raping the girl. multiple times. They took a DNA sample from him to test his flight risk. His bond was set at $2,000,000. He is currently being monitored at the Franklin County Jail.

As sexual abuse coversups dangerously commonConcerns surround the doctor who performed the abortion as well as her handling of the situation.

Dr. Caitlin Bernard originally listedFuentes was 17 years old, not 27. Fuentes would be charged as an adult if the record was not corrected.

Bernard has not commented or released a statement on the incorrectly reported information. violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act—which requires her to keep patients’ medical information private—when speaking to the press. Investigators are still trying to determine if the doctor is guilty. reportedThe reporting of a rape or other crime to local law enforcement is a requirement under Ohio law.

An analysis of federal data reveals that illegal aliens have committed many crimes. higher rateRather than legal immigrants or U.S. citizens. This is an unfortunate example of a common problem.  

Clearly, the left’s already poor immigration policies have been worsened by the Biden administration’s border crisis. Record-high numbersEach month, thousands of illegal aliens enter the U.S. through the southern border. Crimes associated with illegal aliens have skyrocketed in America due to President Joe Biden’s open border policies.

Innocent victims like this 10-year-old girl illustrate why it’s critical to protect our border.

This is in light of the Supreme Court’s recent overturning Roe v. WadeThe left continues to propagate the false narrative that abortion can be a constitutional right, which has caused outrage. The truth is that abortion has never been a constitutional rights and it is not now.

Ohio protects unborn children after an ultrasound detects their heartbeat (roughly at six weeks). The victim was six weeks and three days pregnant. The left immediately falsely claimed that the state of Ohio had no exceptions for cases such as this little girl’s, failing to point out that the child would have access to an abortion under a “medical emergency exception,” as the state’s attorney general, Dave Yost, cited.

Regardless of the fact that the 10-year-old never needed to leave her state for the abortion, the left continues to use the fact that she traveled to Indiana as a talking point in their pro-abortion messaging and legislative efforts, including in advancing the “Ensuring Access to Abortion Act.” Biden himself continues touting this message, and the media cheers him on.

Rather than focus on the cause of the child’s rape—the illegal alien that committed a horrific crime—the current administration and pro-abortion activists use this child’s abuse to further their political agenda.

Ironically, the Left shouts the false impression that pro-lifers fail after children leave the womb. Naturally, with soaring numbers of unaccompanied children crossing the border and the administration encouraging it more every day with its dangerous policies, we already know administration officials have no problem sacrificing children’s safety to continue fueling their border crisis.

Rather than exploiting a 10-year-old girl’s story to make headlines, the Biden administration should focus on fixing the real problem they caused: the disastrous open border. This is the first step to ensuring that this terrible story doesn’t happen again.
