Illegal alien committed brutal child rape after he was ordered deported

On Feb. 6, Carlos Nunez Portillo, 47, was arraigned in Riverside County Superior Court on several child sexual assault charges, after spending nearly five years on the run.

He was captured in Mexico a week earlier.

Portillo began raping a girl in Indio, Calif., when she was 14, and the abuse continued until she was 15-years-old, according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.

MyDesert.com reported:

In July 2009, the girl told investigators that Portillo said “he would cause her mother to live on the streets” if the teenager didn’t do what he said, or told anyone about what they did.

Portillo fled his residence at the Elms Trailer Park in Indio after a warrant was issued for his arrest on July 24, 2009, leaving his two sons behind.

On Jan. 30, 2014, Portillo was located by the U.S. Marshals Service and taken into custody by local law enforcement in Mexicali.

However, Portillo was actually ordered deported in 2008, while he was living on the other side of the country, in Adelphi, Md.

According to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) press release:

Portillo-Nunez received a Notice to Appear in immigration court in October 2008 and failed to appear for a hearing before an immigration judge in Baltimore, Md., in December 2008. He was subsequently ordered removed in absentia.

Of course, Portillo was already living in California by the time the federal government ordered him returned to his home country of El Salvador.

Once Portillo was charged with child rape, ICE placed him on their "Most Wanted" list.

In short, had ICE simply taken Portillo into custody in 2008, rather than sending him a "Notice to Appear" in immigration court, this illegal alien would not have been able to rape anyone, and in this case, forever change a young girl's life.

It should also be noted that ICE agents commonly refer to such notices, as "run letters."

Portillo has been charged with rape by force, lewd acts with a child, criminal contact with a child, two counts of oral copulation with a minor and rape with a foreign object.

The Salvadoran national is currently being held at the Riverside County Jail on $1,000,000 bail, as well as on an ICE detainer.
