‘It’s important for parents to educate themselves and their children about potentially dangerous apps and how to spot them…’
North Carolinians for Immigration Reform and Enforcement released its June “Child Rapes by Illegal Aliens” report and found that 22 illegal aliens were charged with 238 sex crimes against children.
One of June’s worst offenders in North Carolina was Lorenzo Vasquez, a 23-year-old illegal alien who lived in Siler City.
The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office first arrested Vasquez in March, and NCFIRE reports that he was arrested again on June 5, WGHP reported.
Authorities charged him with 168 counts of felony second degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
Vasquez allegedly exploited children online through the Kik app, a messaging platform that is vulnerable to pornographic spam, since messages can be sent anonymously.
“It’s important for parents to educate themselves and their children about potentially dangerous apps and how to spot them,” said Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Sara Pack. “It’s especially important right now with kids out of school and looking for ways to keep themselves entertained and connected.”
