An organizer of the latest migrant caravan was arrested on rape charges in Honduras.
Juan Carlos Molina, the subject of an arrest warrant since August 2015, was on his way to the United States to seek asylum after raping his minor cousin, Diario La Tribuna reported, according to the Gateway Pundit.
The paper said Molina, 26, is accused of sneaking into the bedroom of his cousin, 12, at night while the girl’s mother was away at work.
The minor child became pregnant and gave birth to a son, the paper said. A DNA test of the infant revealed the child was Molina’s.
Molina skipped court dates and ultimately became a fugitive. He would have made it to the U.S. if he had not been arrested, the Gateway Pundit noted.
The new caravan of an estimated 800 migrants left San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on Monday.
Breitbart News reported Miguel Perez, the sub-director of the Honduran Border Police, said that at the time of his arrest, Molina had fake IDs.
The new caravan, Breitbart noted, comes as the Mexican border city of Tijuana continues to deal with thousands of members of the first caravan who are still waiting to enter the U.S. to request asylum.
Tijuana officials say they lack support from the Mexican federal government to provide food shelters and other basic needs for members of the first caravan.
