In recent months, there seems to have been an explosion of reported child sexual assaults committed by Mexican nationals, in this country illegally...

The most troubling and telling reason behind the growing epidemic of child molestation at the hands of illegal aliens, may lie in the fact the age of sexual consent throughout the majority of Mexico is 12 years of age.

Article 261 of Mexico's Federal Criminal Code states:

Whoever, without the purpose of reaching copulation, performs a sexual act on a person under 12 or on a person that has no capacity of understanding the meaning of the act or that for any reason cannot resist, or demands that the act is performed, will be punished with a term of 2 to 5 years in prison...

Unfortunately, the culture of having sex with young girls is carried with many Mexican men as they cross into this country (illegally)...

In order to bring charges of rape in most Mexican states, the law basically requires that the girl prove that she is a virgin (the law states that only those who seduce "chaste and honest" girls shall be prosecuted), and that the charge of statutory rape be dropped if the rapist wishes to marry his victim.

Of course, when discussing the issue of illegal immigration, this dirty little secret is never talked about by our politicians, nor is the impact that such an attitude towards the abuse of children could have on this nation by offering amnesty to millions of Mexican nationals.
