Pax Americana: Why Promoting American Values Abroad Will Make Us Safer at Home


Jose Dolores Montoya Sanchez has been in the country illegally for at least ten years. He raped a 15 year old girl and is in custody now. You ready for that fence, yet?

GUADALUPE, Ariz. — An illegal immigrant has been arrested on suspicion of raping and kidnapping a 15-year-old girl at her Guadalupe home, Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies said.

The MCSO Special Victims Unit arrested Jose Dolores Montoya Sanchez, 24.

Sanchez was booked into the Maricopa County jail late Wednesday on one count of sexual assault, one count of kidnapping and two counts sexual abuse.

Sheriff’s deputies said they began investigating the case when the victim disclosed that Sanchez sexually assaulted her at a Guadalupe home.

The 15-year-old was immediately taken to a local hospital for medical treatment, MCSO said. A forensic evaluation confirmed an assault, according to sheriff’s investigators.

Sheriff’s deputies said Sanchez has been in the country illegally for the past 10 years.

“This suspect sexually assaulted a young innocent girl and this is yet another example of a violent crime committed by an illegal alien in Maricopa County,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. “The deputies working in Guadalupe did a professional and thorough investigation.”

But is a fence really the only answer here? I can’t help but think about the essay by Dr. Deborah Shurman-Kauflin, author of Vulture: Profiling Sadistic Serial Killers, entitled Importing Violence: The Danger of Immigration from Violent Cultures. The essay is a must read and is the most powerful argument for promoting assimilation at home and promoting American values abroad that I’ve ever read:

Over the past several years, the U.S. has seen a large influx of immigrants, both legal and illegal, from countries whose values are opposed to the rights guaranteed by the U.S. constitution. Specifically, there are large numbers of immigrants coming from countries that are misogynistic. These societies accord women little to no rights, and the idea of violence committed by men against women and children is not unusual.


If you are not yet disgusted, you will be. Not only are criminal immigrants coming from cultures that are misogynistic, but they are changing U.S. culture in response to their sickness. Many illegal aliens join violent gangs which take over neighborhoods and terrorize innocent citizens. These gangs are highly organized with tentacles spread through several countries. The mantra of the deadly MS13 gang is: blood in, blood out. And the chilling effects of the illegal aliens participation in these gangs are very far reaching. For example, on December 19, 2002, Victor Cruz, Jose Hernandez, Armando Juvenal, and Carlos Rodriguez were involved with the drawn out gang rape of an unsuspecting 42 year old New York woman. These illegal aliens were well known to police for their prior crimes of assault, attempted robbery, drug offenses, and illegal gun possession. No deportation followed their lesser offenses because of the sanctuary policy.

However, woman-hating cultures are not confined to South America. The Middle East is full of misogynists, and for reasons that many consider sinister, they are migrating to democratic countries. Why migrate to a country whose norms and beliefs are completely opposed to their lifestyle? The reason is that they hope to change these democratic societies. Instead of adopting and assimilating into countries they choose to migrate, they often cluster together in neighborhoods and bring their hate filled belief systems with them. When examining the lives of Muslims all over the world, it is plain that women do not fair well in Islam. In fact, here is a simple quote from volume 1, book 6, number 301:

Once Allah’s Apostle went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) o ‘Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O Allah’s Apostle ?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.

In other countries to which Muslims have immigrated, there have been atrocious violent crimes committed against women. Germany is seeing the “smiley.” Don’t know what a smiley is? A smiley is a cut from the side of the mouth to the ear. It is supposed to serve as a warning to Muslim girls to make them wear a veil. For those who don’t, the smiley is the punishment of the day.

Clearly building a fence is a nice rallying cry but doesn’t deal with the underlying factors to this sort of criminality. American values are good, and compared to many countries in Latin America and the Middle East America is heaven for women. The left in this country has absolutely convinced Americans that “cultural imperialism” is bad when in fact the exportation of the ideals of Liberty, Equality and Ownership is the only path to the liberation of millions of people from tyranny, torture and death.

Dr. Shurman-Kauflin’s essay points out that many Latin American countries don’t have a culture that values the idea of private property ownership, specifically the right of a woman to own her own body. Marxism’s deep inroads into Latin America has produced several generations of people who don’t recognize the idea of private ownership as valid, whether that ownership be of a grocery store or your own body.

Daniel Ortega, a hero among leftists, raped his own step daughter for years starting when she was 13. He later was elected President of Nicaragua even though his crimes were well known. This should serve to warn Americans of the danger of not providing our closest neighbors with a competing ideology to minimize the destructive influence of Communism.

The non-“imperialist” approach to foreign relations has it’s own blow back, if I may borrow Ron Paul’s favorite phrase. Allowing Communism, Islamism or who knows what other sort of “ism” to take hold in a country we’ll allow immigration from is foolish in the extreme.

The idea of Pax Americana is met with derision by the more “enlightened” left in this country but had Jose Dolores Montoya Sanchez been exposed early to the idea that rape was wrong, that women were equal to men and not objects available for sexual pleasure, who can say for sure if he’d still have decided to viciously attack a child.

Maybe exporting American values doesn’t destroy cultures as much as it saves lives. After all, does anyone really believe Montoya-Sanchez hasn’t done this before, or that when released and deported he won’t do it again?

A border fence may or may not have stopped this particular rape, but a fence will not fix the underlying causes of sexual violence in these countries on our border. Our safety and security cannot be guaranteed by a fence alone, but by a muscular foreign policy and robust cultural outreach that will help change these countries from monster factories into modern republics.
