According to the local media, the important fact about the illegal immigrant charged with rape is that he’s an Uber driver.
Will the story of an illegal immigrant charged with rape and theft get national coverage? I doubt it! Even the local story left out the immigration status of this “undocumented rapist.” Instead, it tells us in the headline that the suspect is an Uber driver. It doesn’t mention he is an “undocumented immigrant” until the second paragraph.
Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez, 39, was arrested at his Santa Maria home last week. The DA’s Office says he has been identified as an undocumented immigrant. The DA’s Office adds he was voluntarily deported from New Mexico back in 2005.
He faces multiple charges each of rape of an intoxicated victim, first-degree burglary, and oral copulation of an intoxicated victim, plus assault with the intent to commit a sex offense, forcible rape, and grand theft.
