Whenever I hear about a heinous crime committed by an illegal alien on an American citizen, it sticks in my craw. Every such crime is one too many because the perpetrator is someone who shouldn’t be here in the first place — and wouldn’t be if not for our broken and overly lax immigration system.

The latest victim is a 6-year-old girl, who was kidnapped from her home in Fort Worth and raped by the creature shown above. His name is Edis Moya Alas, and police have charged him with child abduction and sexual assault of a minor. He also been interviewed by Immigration Customs Enforcement and it has been determined he is in the country illegally.

The child’s father said he noticed around 5 a.m. that the front door of the home was open and that the little girl was nowhere to be found. Authorities searched the area and discovered the missing girl after eight hours later when one of the searchers heard screams coming from a wooded area.

Police say Moya’s relationship to the girl is still unclear and that he is not cooperating with the investigation. He is being held on a $200,000 bond.
