More Americans need to realize the dangers that come with an unsecured border. Ramiro Ajualip was only in the country for 4 weeks, but that didn’t stop him from destroying the life of an innocent child.
Investigators said the horrible sexual act took place in Alabama, at a home in Russellville on February 27th.
According to police, Ramiro Ajualip raped and sodomized a 10-year-old girl while the victim’s parents were not at home.
“From the information we have received, he has been here about four weeks,” stated Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett. “He is undocumented, was a friend of the family and was actually living in the home where the child was.”
Chief Hargett said the little girl was afraid to come forward because of threats Ajualip had made. Once she told her parents, they immediately took the child to an area hospital who’s doctors transferred her to Children`s Hospital in Birmingham for treatment.
Investigators said Ajualip confessed to the sexual attack during their interview.
“You know, a 10-year-old child that probably has no idea what`s really going on, Hargett explained. “It`s sad because now that child is going to be scarred for the rest of her life.”
Ramiro Ajualip is being held in the Franklin County Jail charged with rape first degree and sodomy first degree. His bail is set at $150,000.
As of Tuesday, Franklin County District Attorney Joey Rushing claimed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had not put a hold on Ajualip.
There is a good chance this rapist could be sent back to his native country without incurring any punishment for the crime committed.
If they bond them out, then the ICE hold immediately takes on, and they’ll call ICE and a lot of times take them on to the processing center “ even though they have these pending criminal charges, Rushing told WSFA-12, the local NBC affiliate in Central Alabama. “In fact, there’s been several times where a person has ended up getting deported before they ever faced the charges they are actually removed and put into their home country, never to have to face justice for the victim or anything else.
