Illegal immigration is a massive
our country. Despite this, many on the left continue to advocate
for policies protecting
undocumented aliens from deportation. Because of this, innocent people are currently
by people who shouldn’t be in this country in the first place.
For example, an illegal immigrant
living in Danbury, Connecticut, was recently sentenced
to prison for torturing a young girl in her care after “nanny cam” footage
caught her burning, beating, and dragging the helpless child. Specifically,
Lidia Quilligana, a 32-year-old undocumented alien, was captured
on video “holding the 3-year-old’s hands and legs to a hot stove, slapping her
and dragging her around by [her] hair.” In addition to the 3-year-old girl, she
also reportedly brutally abused two other 1-year-old twins. As a consequence,
she was sentenced to 15 years behind bars.
In court, prosecutors struggled to
hide their disgust. For instance, while addressing the court, Assistant State’s
Attorney Warren Murray, stated, “the abuse occurred virtually every day that we
have video for, [which is a total of 10 days]. While Lidia may seem petite, she
was big enough to casually pick up a 3-year-old girl and swing her around by
the hair, much like a track star swings a hammer. It was just so disturbing.
I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Attorney Sharon Dornfeld was equally
repulsed. “[Quilligana] tortured those children. There is no other way to
describe it,” she told the court, noting, “there was an amount of sustained and
depraved cruelty that I’ve never seen before. Every parent at some point snaps
and does something to their child they later regret. The video shows this case
isn’t even close to that.”
Kevin Russo, the judge presiding over
the case, was also disgusted by the horrific abuse. “The punishment doesn’t
even come close to fitting the crime,” he mentioned while sentencing Quilligana.
He was particularly taken aback by one moment in the video when she let the
3-year-old girl out of a toy box and ordered her upstairs. When she complied,
Quilligana violently slapped her in the face.
“As she turned up the stairs, you
slapped her. For what?” asked judge Russo. She had already complied with your
orders,” he pointed out, noting, “what it did was serve as a coming attraction
for a horror movie.” He added, “it’s clear from her body language that (the
girl) had accepted that beatings were part of her 3-year-old life.”
During the trial, Quilligana did her
best to apologize to the family. “I couldn’t control myself,” she claimed,
adding, “believe me, I loved those children with all my heart. I’m sorry a
"I couldn't control myself."
But the victim’s mother, however, was
not interested in an apology. “To be frank, I’m not the one you should
apologize to,” she said in a brief statement to the court, noting, “you need to
own up to what you did and serve your time. There is no excuse for your
The children’s godmother added, “I
can’t even fathom what these children went through that wasn’t caught on video.
I can’t imagine spending day after day with this torture. These were all
Although Quilligana’s attorney, Jenn
Tunnard, agreed that the abuse was “unthinkable, unconscionable and
unfathomable,” she tried to blame it on her being abused as a child herself.
”Her father, who drank heavily, would hang Lidia and her siblings by their legs
and beat them until they bled,” claimed Tunnard, who mentioned that she was
simply disciplining the children the only way she knew how. ”While the public
may see my client as a monster, she is really a sad person who lost control,”
Regardless of whether or not
Quilligana is a monster or a sad person who just lost control, she shouldn’t
have been in this country in the first place. After her 15 year sentence,
she should be deported from the country. This is because no one should be
harmed by someone living in the country illegally. While it’s true that not
everyone living here unlawfully will commit additional crimes, since some will,
letting them stay is simply not worth the risk.
Ed. Not to beat up on a family which has already gone through a great deal
but what in the world would possess parents to turn their 3 year old daughter
over to an illegal alien? She clearly has no problem with breaking the law! I
don’t get it.
We can only hope this
little girl can begin to lead a normal life.
