( – A Venezuelan national who entered the US illegally has been arrested after allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl. The suspect crossed the border last year and has been living in Virginia since then. The case throws a renewed spotlight on the danger Americans face from illegal immigrants.

On February 22, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office announced that they’d arrested Renzo Mendoza Montes, a 32-year-old Venezuelan, on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in January. He’s been charged with two felonies — carnal knowledge of a child without force, and taking indecent liberties with a child. He was held without bail at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail but is now in ICE custody.

The reason this case is so worrying is Montes shouldn’t even have been in the US. On September 2 he was detained by US Customs and Border Patrol near El Paso, Texas, as he illegally crossed from Mexico. However, he was then released and allowed to go on his way — and he ended up in Campbell County, Virginia, where he was able to assault his victim.

As the border crisis continues, with no sign of the Biden administration trying to stop the flood of migrants, communities across the country are falling victim to criminals who should have been turned around at the border and sent back to where they came from.

On February 22 the body of University of Georgia student Laken Riley was found near the campus; another Venezuelan, 26-year-old Jose Ibarra, has been charged with her murder. Like Montes, he was caught at the border but released into the US. Yet another Venezuelan, 15-year-old Jesus Rivas-Figueroa, shot a tourist and tried to shoot cops in Times Square, New York City in January.

These people are entering the country and then attacking US citizens — often just months after they arrive — and our government isn’t doing anything about it.
