Illegal Convicted of Child Porn Might Not Be Deported Due to Immigration Reform
A Mexican national living illegally in the United States has been sentenced for extreme child pornography, but might not be deported after he serves his federal prison sentence due to possible changes surrounding comprehensive immigration reform, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Ricardo Reyes was sentenced to seven years in federal prison for receipt of child pornography, specifically downloading and saving videos and images of sexual acts between children. Disturbingly, the U.S. Attorney’s Office press release stated: “After his release from prison, if not deported, Reyes will begin a five year term of supervised release.”
The “if not deported” phrase is not normal for a press release in a case like this. The lack of certainty that deportation will occur led Breitbart News to contact the U.S. Attorney’s Office regarding the reasoning behind the expressed uncertainty.
U.S. Attorney's Office of the District of Nebraska Criminal Chief Jan Sharp gave this response in a telephone interview with Breitbart News:
There isn’t necessarily a substantive difference between "might be deported" and "will be deported." The expectation is that he will be deported, but with all that's going on, it's possible the laws will change between now and the end of his sentence and he might not be.
The statement indicates high ranking member within the U.S. Attorney’s Office realizes the impact comprehensive immigration reform could have and result in illegal aliens who engage in the receipt and distribution of child pornography being allowed to stay in the United States.
According to the criminal complaint against the Reyes, there existed a file on his computer titled “4yo Girl And 5Yo Suck Look.” The investigator noted: “The compilation video has numerous children from two to nine years of age engaged in oral and vaginal sex.”
The investigator also noted: “Reyes stated that he planned to move back to Mexico in the near future and that he did not have any identification.”
The investigator’s description of one of the videos described it as involving a “...prepubescent child in oral, vaginal, and anal sex.”
This case comes on the heels of several illegal aliens being arrested in Austin, Texas for allegedly picking up and raping a 13-year old girl as they cheered and videotaped each other.
