ICE: Twice-Deported Illegal Alien Wanted for Child Rape in Delaware


An illegal alien who had been deported from the U.S. twice in the same year is wanted by police in Dover, Delaware, for allegedly raping a six-year-old girl in 2011, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials told Breitbart News.

Officials told Breitbart News on Wednesday that illegal alien Juan Carlos Hernandez-Tapia, 33, a Mexican national who had been accused of raping a six-year-old girl in 2011, had been deported two times that year.

The Mexican national’s first encounter with ICE officials came after the Dover Police Department arrested him on local charges. ICE officials said deportation officials with its Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) center in Dover arrested Hernandez-Tapia on an immigration violation on February 6, 2011.

Ten days later, deportation officials placed a detainer on Hernandez-Tapia while he was serving time at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna. Once the jail released him from custody, they turned him over to ICE, which later arrested him on immigration violations, ICE officials said.
