(TheFreedomFlag.com)- It seems like every week we hear of new horror stories of illegal immigrants causing American citizens pain and suffering, and this week is no exception. An illegal immigrant has been accused of abusing two children by forcing them into ice water baths and even hitting them using belts in Georgia.
Cobb County police arrested Meiri Josaro Lara-Oliva, a 23-year-old illegal immigrant who came to the United States from Honduras. The local Sheriff’s Office confirmed the arrest and said that the illegal alien had been charged with a count of aggravated assault, another count of aggravated battery, and two counts of first-degree cruelty to children. She was also charged with a count of third-degree cruelty to children, relating specifically to her forcing them into ice baths.
Law enforcement agents also explained how Lara-Oliva used a belt to hit a child in the face, and not in the old school way of reprimanding a child. It was blatant child cruelty with intent to cause harm. She also hit the second child on the back with a belt, before forcing them both to get into the icy cold water.
As if that wasn’t horrifying enough, law enforcement officials also said that Lara-Oliva wasn’t just looking to cause them pain but was purposely trying to kill the children. She submerged them in the water “with intent to murder” then, according to another child who watched the abuse happen.
Lara-Oliva has since been detained and is being kept at Cobb County Jail, where she can’t harm any more children. She was detained thanks to a detainer order that was put in place by ICE, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement body, which will ensure she isn’t released back into the public.
Thankfully, Lara-Oliva didn’t commit the crime in a sanctuary state. In such an instance it is likely that state officials would have refused to cooperate with ICE and she may ultimately have been let back out onto the streets where she could hurt other children.
