Illegal Alien Sentenced On Sex Trafficking in NC

A 44-year-old undocumented Mexican national was sentenced to 24 years in prison on charges that he transported two teenage girls between Washington, D.C., and North Carolina to engage in sex acts.

A statement from the U.S. Department of Justice said Jorge Flores-Rojas was sentenced Monday in federal court in Charlotte on two counts of sex trafficking of minors and one count of interstate transportation of an adult for purposes of commercial sex.

Flores-Rojas was accused of trafficking the 16- and 17-year-old
girls and an adult woman between Charlotte and Washington to
perform commercial sex acts in November 2007.

Flores-Rojas, who pleaded guilty last October, must pay $117,000
in restitution to one of the victims and register as a sex offender. He will be deported to Mexico upon his release from prison.

    To: Mary Location: NC ..You are so right, Why should we have to pay the cost of criminals ?? America should buy some land in a foreign country, and send all the criminals there. We will call this land "DOOM." No corrections officials, no luxury, Nothing. If you commit a crime, you are "Doomed." If you survive, so be it. If you die so be it. We could save Trillions of $$$$$ and crime would diminish. If I commit a crime, I will be "Doomed."

    You have got to be kidding me. We have to pay for him to be in prison? Living in Luxury with TV, 3 meals a day, Air, heat, showers? Then he gets to go back home? Give us all a break, send him home now. Don't worry about making us pay for the prison, he loves in it in there.

    We have thousands of armed forces personnel training for war and waiting for something to happen. They are on a salery so why not let them guard the border. It should not cost the tax payers anymore money.

    If they closed the border it would be harder for illegals to sneak back into the country. If so many people were not making money off illegals they would close the border.

    What will happen once he is deported after his release? Let's not forget the one who is still wanted for a murder in Vanceboro because he to had already pulled time in prison and was deported back to Mexico once he was released, but found his way back here and committed another crime while here and is still on the run.
