Just Raping the Kids Americans Won’t – Juan Henoch Mejia

As Dr. Deborah Shurman-Kauflin, author of the excellent book Vulture: Profiling Sadistic Serial Killers, points out in her essay Importing Violence: The Danger of Immigration from Violent Cultures it behooves Americans to demand that immigrants from cultures where women are viewed as sexual object assimilate into our cultural norms. The “machismo” culture of Central and South America is one that specifically concerns her:

Over the past several years, the U.S. has seen a large influx of immigrants, both legal and illegal, from countries whose values are opposed to the rights guaranteed by the U.S. constitution. Specifically, there are large numbers of immigrants coming from countries that are misogynistic. These societies accord women little to no rights, and the idea of violence committed by men against women and children is not unusual.

First, take the concept of ‘rapto.’ This comes from Mexico where in some areas, it is socially acceptable for a man of any age to abduct a female of any age as long as long as he intends to marry her. That is right. Men can kidnap and rape females. This is acceptable in Oaxaca where the government continues to view rapto as a minor crime. One legislator even referred to this horrid violation as “romantic.” Lest anyone believe such garbage, note that 24 year old Mexican immigrant Eliseo Nunez snatched a 12 year old girl and took her to Mexico to fulfill his erotic desires. Isn’t that romantic?

The fact is that South American male attitudes toward females are often archaic and misogynistic. Thus it is not surprising that the U.S. is seeing more attacks against women and little girls committed by these immigrants. In August 2005, illegal immigrant Jose Ramirez from El Salvador was charged with the violent attack of a 15 year old girl who refused to respond when he whistled at her (Roh, 2005). Perhaps such primitive behavior stems from the homeland culture. El Salvador and Guatemala have had a string of unsolved brutal murders where young females have been abducted and cut apart. Authorities have found body parts, including heads scattered around. In one instance, two female heads were deposited right in front of a local police station, blood still oozing from the severed heads (Miles, 2003). Gangs are suspected in these crimes as it is often part of their initiation to kill.

One of the things she doesn’t touch on in her essay though is how children are sexualized in these cultures. In Mexico there are states where the statutory age is 12 for girls and in practice girls that are much younger are “married’ to adult men. Child molestation is not viewed the same way we view it in many parts of the world which is why we too often see stories like this:

Police in the Rio Grande Valley town of Rio Hondo arrested Juan Henoch Mejia on Wednesday and he has been charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Police there say he not only molested two preschool-age girls — one three and the other four years old — but also allegedly forced them to drink his semen.

Cameron County court records state that the four-year-old complained to her mother of pain on Tuesday.

After a trip to the doctor, it was discovered that the girl had been molested. A doctor called the Cameron County Sheriff’s Office, and they soon identified Mejia as the suspect.

In his subsequent confession, Mejia allegedly said that the girls walked in on him while he was masturbating in his room, and that he decided to molest them at that point. He also allegedly confessed to forcing the girls to drink his ejaculate from a cup.

Mejia also has an immigration hold and reports are that he;s here illegally. However since the Obama administration is badly mismanaging their probably illegal “dreamer” program I’ll bet you Mejia quietly jumps bail and disappears once ICE is involved.
