Mexican man charged with raping 13-year-old had 19 deportations, removals, by the AP (via the Los Angeles Times), December 30, 2016. Excerpt:

Three Republican senators — including Kansas’ Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts — demanded this month that the Department of Homeland Security provide immigration records for 38-year-old Tomas Martinez-Maldonado, who is charged with a felony in the alleged Sept. 27 attack aboard a bus in Geary County.
