Illegal Alien Charged with Raping 11-Year-Old American Girl
Illegal immigrant from El Salvador is one of two men arrested for child rape
One of two men arrested and charged with raping an 11-year-old American girl in Maryland is an illegal alien, according to reports.
Authorities revaled that illegal immigrant Jonathan Coreas-Salamanca, 20, was arrested along with Ivan Reyes Lopez, 19, earlier this month at the high schools they attended in Montgomery County, Md.
Both men have now been charged with second-degree rape of a child, WJLA-TV reported.
Coreas-Salamanca, an El Salvador citizen living in the United States illegally, is facing additional charges of sexual abuse of a minor and a third-degree sexual offense.
ICE spokeswoman Kaitlyn Pote said in a Tuesday statement to the Daily Caller that the agency is seeking to deport Coreas-Salamanca.
“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) lodged a detainer for Jonathan Coreas-Salamanca, an unlawfully present Salvadoran national, with Montgomery County Detention Center on Feb. 14, following his arrest by Montgomery County Police for sex abuse of a minor and second-degree rape,” Pote said.
Coreas-Salamanca was arrested Feb. 13 at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring where he is enrolled and Lopez was taken into police custody at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, according to Fox News.
Coreas-Salamanca is accused of exchange explicit text messages and photographs with the 11-year-old girl, in addition to arranging meetups for sexual encounters.

Her father found the phone on Christmas Eve last year and called the police, the news station said.
"[The victim's father] described a text message where Suspect Coreas-Salamanca advised Victim A that she bit his penis the last time she performed fellatio," court documents state.
"Suspect Coreas-Salamanca's purpose in sending the text message was to teach Victim A how to better perform fellatio."
The Washington Examiner reported that Montgomery County is allowing ICE to place detainers on undocumented immigrants, which allows agents to pick them up from jail to begin deportation proceedings.
The report said that if ICE agents don't arrive on time or miss an appointment to pick up the undocumented immigrants, they are released.
The county has seen a spike in crime committed by undocumented immigrants in recent years.
