June 2015 Rape Case Underscores the Flaws in Obama's 'Enforcement Priorities'

By Andrew R. Arthur on April 4, 2019

I and others at the Center have, in the past, criticized the Obama administration's so-called immigration "enforcement priorities" policies, which were laid out in a November 2014 memo from then-Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson. As it related to crimes, those priorities were focused on "convictions", and not charges. A recent case out of Georgia underscores the flaws in those policies, and suggests that they continue to shape the immigration debate.

On March 27, 2019, the Gwinnett Daily Post ran a story about the conviction of 24-year-old Ruben Alvarado, "who is in the country illegally [and] will spend the next 25 years behind bars for raping a 12-year-old girl his grandmother babysat." Stories about crimes committed by aliens illegally present in the United States are not uncommon, and often end in debates about whether such aliens commit crimes at a greater or lesser rate than the native population.
