Another rape by ‘repeat’ illegal alien, as border church builds Virgin Mary ‘statue of liberty’ to be a ‘beacon’ for more


Reminiscent of the Statue of Liberty, a Southern California Catholic church is looking to build a 40 ft. statue of the Virgin Mary on the border that will effectively serve as a beacon drawing illegal immigrants to America.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in San Ysidro is working to raise $1 million for the statue, which will be called “Welcome the Stranger,” KGTV reported. The Virgin Mary will also hold a torch, similar to the New York City landmark.

The project cost is estimated at $2 million and has already received $1 million from the California Endowment, a private health foundation, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“It will stand as a beacon of hope and encouragement for people engaged in the struggle of the migrant,” said artist Jim Bliesner, who designed the statue.

Meant to symbolize the “emotional experiences” illegal immigrants face, the border statue will be illuminated and feature sharp angles and bright colors in Mary’s robe, according to Bliesner.

Not that we need to be reminded of how welcoming the Catholic Church is to illegal immigrants, but Bishop Robert McElroy of the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego all but espoused an open border stance in saying it will send a strong message about the border.

“It is a symbol and powerful reminder that for us, for us as people of faith, for us as America, the border represents not a line of separation, but a line that unites us to Latin America,” McElroy told The Times.

Meanwhile, an illegal immigrant has been charged with allegedly “viciously” raping a Long Island woman.

Ever Martinez-Reyes, 24, from El Salvador, was ordered held without bail Saturday on rape, sexual assault and assault charges after allegedly following a woman home and knocking her out, Fox News reported.

“When he assaulted her and knocked her out, he then proceeded to rape her,” Nassau Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said. “She woke up and he knocked her out again and viciously continued to assault her.”

Martinez-Reyes had previously been deported and reentered the U.S. illegally in 2014.

Perhaps, a statue is needed to recognize the “emotional experience” of Americans who are victimized by foreign nationals who have no business being in the country.
