Tomas Martinez-Maldonado, an illegal alien was arrested in September for raping a 13 year old girl on a Greyhound bus. Three US Senators demanded that the DHS give them the immigration history on him. Not surprisingly, he is a repeat offender. There seems to have been a lot of that since Barack Obama became dictator.
Tomas Martinez-Maldonado has been deported a total of 19 times. Eleven times under Obama.
A Mexican man accused of raping a 13-year-old girl on a Greyhound bus that traveled through Kansas in September had been deported 10 times and voluntarily removed from the U.S. another nine times since 2003, records obtained by The Associated Press show.
Three U.S. Republican senators – including Kansas’ Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts – demanded this month that the Department of Homeland Security provide immigration records for 38-year-old Tomas Martinez-Maldonado, who is charged with a felony in the alleged Sept. 27 attack aboard a bus in Geary County. He is being held in the Geary County jail in Junction City, which is about 120 miles west of Kansas City.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it has placed a detainer – a request to turn Martinez-Maldonado over to ICE custody before he is released – with Geary County. ICE declined to discuss his specific case beyond its October statement regarding the 10 deportations.
Court filings show Martinez-Maldonado has two misdemeanor convictions for entering without legal permission in cases prosecuted in 2013 and 2015 in U.S. District Court of Arizona, where he was sentenced to serve 60 days and 165 days respectively.
A status hearing in the rape case is scheduled for Jan. 10. Defense attorney Lisa Hamer declined to comment on the charge, but said, “criminal law and immigration definitely intersect and nowadays it should be the responsibility of every criminal defense attorney to know the possible ramifications in the immigration courts.”
