Video News Report on “Rape Trees” Found in The Desert

Posted by Chuck   @   18 May 2010 42 comments

To set up the video at the end of this article, I need to take you back to February 23, 2009  when Arizona State Senator Jonathan Paton (R-Tucson) invited law enforcement officials to the Capital for a hearing.  Paton asked the officers to describe how bad the border violence has become in Arizona.  What the Senate Judiciary Committee learned was that Pima and Cochise counties were seeing an alarming increase of more and more “Rape Trees”.  These are memorials, if you will, that are left behind by Mexican drug cartel members, and illegal male immigrants who have raped illegal female immigrants and then forced their victims to hang their clothes, usually panties or bras, on trees.  With seized weapons on display, the officials described how
border violence plays out in human smuggling, home invasions, rapes,
auto thefts, and kidnappings.

The pictures below were taken by a “Minuteman Border Patrol” volunteer.   A rape tree is what Mexican illegals create with the panties and bras of the women they have raped along the trail to America. After they have had their way with the women and young girls, they force them to hang their panties or bras, on the trees as a sign of their conquest. On this trip the Minutemen found only 3 such trees, the last trip they found 4. Now that may not seem like a lot, but you must remember that the Sanoran Desert encompasses 120,000 square miles in Arizona, California, and Mexico. That makes for a lot of rape trees that may never be discovered.

If this got you thinking about the problems of illegal immigration, then you should also check out the article I wrote about the ecological mess these illegals have wrecked upon the Sonoran Desert South of Tucson Arizona. It too is accompanied by a short video.

Great article — thank you. The crimes against Americans are well documented, but the crimes against the illegals are too often glossed over. People who oppose 1070 think they are helping the less fortunate. But by opposing 1070, one is really supporting the continued victimization of these illegals at their most vulnerable time, while empowering the Coyotes who victimize them. I hope you might also write about “drop houses,” and how the illegals are held ransom by their Coyotes once they reach the USA. Too often Coyotes will cut off a body part to send to the family as a little extra encouragement to pay whatever ransom is demanded. Girls are often held as “comfort women” for the Coyotes, raped at will for as long as they want/need her. As you’ve already shown, illegal immigration is a violent, ugly business for everyone involved.

Thanks for your feedback Mia. I will look into the “drop houses” and the whole coyote illegal immigrant and hostage angle.

Thanks for the support and the heads up.

As much as I am vehemently against illegal immigration, or amnesty, I am even more harsh when it comes to those who take advantage of the most innocent among humans. Rape is a violent act that deserves as harsh a penalty as murder in my book. It is an act that stays with the victim their whole life.

I pray for all victims and of violence. If we van get those supporting the illegal activities of these illegals then we can drastically reduce the violence that women and men suffer at the hand of these low life criminals.

Thanks again for your input.

What needs to happen is castrate the coyotes carrying these illegals over the border, and hang their bells on those trees.

This is waht I read elsewhere about the rapes that happen to women who are comming here illegally.

Along the U.S.-Mexico border, on stretches of desert and farmland trafficked by undocumented immigrants, women’s underwear is draped from the branches of trees. On a single tree outside Tucson, Arizona, an orange pair, a blue pair, and a white pair hang like grotesque ornaments among the desert’s thorny brush. Border activists and women’s advocacy groups call them “rape trees.” Each pair of underwear, they say, represents a victim of sexual abuse.

Immigrant women are told by many Latin American agencies about the danger. In some Central American communities, they’re advised to take oral contraceptives to prepare for the possibility of rape, to dress like men during the journey. The women are told they could be abused by the coyotes (guides) who take them across the Rio Grande, or by the border bandits who wait along the river, ready to pounce. They’re told that sometimes the threat comes from men in uniform. In at least two cases in the 1990s, U.S. Border Patrol agents were charged with sexually abusing female immigrants along the border.

“The message that these women hear is that abuse will happen. Not that it might, but that it will,” says Montserrat Caballero, the program director of Su Voz Vale at the Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault. “For a lot of ladies, they’re resigned to this inevitability … and for some of them, sexual abuse isn’t just a one-time incident. It happens several times before they arrive in the U.S.”

Notice that no where in the article from a site that is quoting the “Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault” never once say that they tell the women to not go because they will get raped. No, they say it will happen so take pills or dress like a man. What about the idea of staying put in your own country so you won’t be repeatedly raped by other illegals coming to America.

I had never heard of “rape trees” before today when I read it in your article. Thank you for doing that which the MSM refuses to do.

Honestly this doesn’t surprise me; neither that they exist nor that I had never heard of them. Illegal immigration is a serious problem that faces the United States and its citizens. Those people who wish to enter our nation need to do so in the proper manner or not at all. As a sovereign nation we have the right to create any laws we wish and a duty to not only create “just” laws but to enforce them if for no other reason than the security of our own citizens.

That having been said, illegal immigration is a growing problem that no amount of paperwork or public outrage will end. When these people choose to enter the United States illegally, they are making a conscious decision to live outside the rules, and therefore the benefits, of our society. They also knowingly take upon certain risks by making this choice, i.e. possible rape en-route to their illegal status. These crimes are horrendous and should be stopped but truthfully, they are “our” problem ONLY because they are committed on our soil. The corruption and crime present in Mexico is NOT OUR problem; it is made so only when illegal immigrants bring it across our borders, i.e. “rape trees”, Hispanic street gangs, illegal drugs, etc.

In the interest of national security, I support tighter border security. However, in the interest of human decency, I concede that these illegal immigrants should not be subjected to intolerable conditions or made easy victims while here. We should give these people a hot meal and warm bath before we deport them. These women who fall victim at “rape trees”, should even be given the morning-after pill before deportation. But they should be deported.

For all you bleeding-heart liberals who feel People like me are cruel or heartless, consider this; Crimes cannot be solved if they remain unknown. These women who have fallen victim on their illegal border crossings do not report the crimes for fear of deportation. How then can we be held accountable for what has happened? Why should we spend our tax money to fix a problem they created and perpetuate daily? Those are my thoughts. Agree or disagree, I don’t really care.

The sad thing is, many liberals will blame these rapes on America for not allowing the illegals safe transport to our country, jobs, food stamps, healthcare, free housing etc. etc. etc.

Well hear this you libtards, This is not the USA’s problem?

I agree that it is an awful thing to happen to any human, how about trying to live legally instead of whining about what happens to you when you live as a criminal?

If you cross the border illegally – you are a criminal and I no longer care what happens to you. If I could, I would personally help build a massive wall that is electrified to help this situation out.

We need to face the truth about our nation, the borders, our neighbors, and laws in place to protect our society. Accept the truth, do not deny reality. Rape trees have existed a long time before the Minutemen began attracting attention to the issue. As a teen, I had heard of sex crimes and victimization along the border. I even heard about these rape trees when I was a young boy and how the coyote displayed his trophies for all to see.

This reflects a cultural reality of Mexico, the fact that a society, has deteriorated and fallen into such disgrace as to victimize itself with corruption and crime. It should be the goal of all persons supporting Mexico, and who owe their allegiance to the Mexican flag, to go into Mexico to protest the violence and teach about the dangers and realities of illegal immigration. The Mexican Nationals need to Fix Mexico, and Americans need to defend the USA.

It is a sad fact that illegal aliens are exploited at every step along the path to their idea of a fantasy life of living the “American Dream”.

US citizens should join up to tour the border, and clean up the trash left by the illegal aliens. Save the American Dream for your retirement years, and give your children a safe society to raise their children. US Civil Rights are for US citizens. Mexicans et. al. will have to fight and die to secure their nation, if they want Mexican Civil Rights and the Mexican Dream.

Those, cowardly Mexicans waving Mexican flags in the USA, are deserters avoiding the fight for the freedom of their home country Mexico. Stop the denial and accept personal responsibility. Carry your own baggage, and you might notice the weight.

Another dirty little secret- you will also find women’s high heels, nice purses, etc. out in the desert. I asked a Border Patrolman once- I was so curious why someone would dress up to hike across the desert. He told me coyotes lie to the women (and men) and tell them they only have to walk across the border and will be picked up by vehicle on the other side- just a short walk. The truth is even those that have vehicles to meet the illegals- it can be many miles to the vehicle and the drivers coyotes use are not dependable- if they don’t show up they just have to keep hiking across the desert. Many of the smugglers don’t even have vehicle pickups planned to begin with.

There are many lies told to the illegals by the smugglers- once an illegal woman with a baby were found out in a rainstorm near where I live. The coyote left her and the baby behind because they were slowing the rest of them down (duh) anyway he told her when he left her that she was only 5 miles from Phoenix and should be able to get a ride quickly- more like 250 miles!

That is what gets me about the so called supporters of illegals- if they really care about the people then they should want to stop this since the people are so abused by the coyotes.

#11 Russ Nelson :

This entire problem is caused by the illegality of immigration. If Mexicans, or indeed, anybody, could enter the USA the way our grandparents could, the problem of rape trees would go away. Why does everybody on the right immediately understand “when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns” but never ever understand “when immigration is outlawed, only outlaws will immigrate”.

That’s why you mostly see desperate people and criminals immigrating across our southern border, and never doctors, lawyers, and engineers. Make it legal, and you destroy the black market. Make it legal, and you take away coyote’s profits. Make it legal, and immigrants can report crimes of violence against them.

Make it legal, and we can have a safer country.

#12 Chuck Wolk :

Immigration is legal, but you need to do it within the confines of the law. When people come here by skirting the laws in place, then they become illegal. Immigration to America is the easiest in the world, but these individuals do not want to come her legally, they wish to come through illegal channels.

No my friend, the only way to fix this problem is to follow Arizona and crack down on those who are committing the crime, not making the law easier for them to get here. I don’t know about your grandparents, but my Fathers father came over from Norway via Ellis Island, and went through the proper channels of becoming an American citizen. They did not slip over the border and avoid the authorities like those coming over the our Southern border.

If we do not continue the same rule then, we might as well legalize murder. After all, if it is legal to murder people then no one will ever be guilty of murder. I know, why don’t we just legalize rape! Then these women can be rest assured that there will be no law broken when a man forces himself upon her by having his way. Then when she is forced to hang her soiled underwear on a tree to show the world what a great man he is, she can be comforted by the fact that she was not violated because no law was broken.

.That is what you are basically saying by claiming this problem exists only because America says it is illegal to not follow the rules. You are a sick individual, and some day that thinking is going to get you in big trouble my friend.

By the way, thanks for contributing your opinion.

I have heard the same thing from quite a few Arizonans, New Mexicans, Californians, and Texans that live by the border. They mirror your story that they have seen these trees in the desert border areas for years. Some knew what they were, others just recently found out what they were.

Now we need the rest of America to find out about them. The violations of these women and our borders will not cease to exist until Americans stand up to the Amnesty lobby and demand that the federal government do what Arizona said it is going to start doing. Enforce the law!

While I agree with you on the illegal immigration I certainly don’t with “the women should be given the morning after pill” to kill the unborn child she possibly could have conceived due to her being a victim of a rape. That child is a precious child of God. That child shouldn’t be put to death for the sins of the father. After all, would you kill the grownup child of a rapist/molester? And what would be the difference of an unborn child and a child outside the womb? It’s child of God. Born or unborn. If you think that it’s more compassionate for the woman-think again. The rape has occured. There ‘s no taking it back. Certainly not with a murder. Evidence has shown that usualy just compounds the trauma.You just give this deadly option to a emotionally traumatized/susciptible woman and she’s in no emotional state to do the right thing. But others are. You are. Thou shall not kill Go to elliot institute for more info. God bless.

I agree with you Frank. I apologize if I in any way insinuated otherwise. I, like you, am wholeheartedly against any and all forms of abortion. Also, I am against any form of contraception. While I am not Catholic, I am an Evangelical Christian that believes it is God who has the only authority to open and closes the womb.

As a product of a violent rape myself, I believe that God and God only has the decision of who can be born and who cannot. The only choice we as humans have in the matter of life being born is either we have sexual relations or we don’t. Also it should only be in the confines of a marriage between a man and a woman.

I hope that clears things up as to where I stand on the abortion issue.

Did anyone else note the chuckles of laughter from the pogue of the ACLU? And he then later remarks that “they have no evidence”, and that it is somehow a so-called Minutemen embellished story.

I too noticed his smug laugh. Like the women and girls talking to the reporter are making up stories about what happened.

What is really sad is the liberal women who defend these rapists like they defended Clinton.

Like these are the kinds of men we want to become citizens in America. Just the other day there was a story out of Seattle about a woman who was raped by an illegal Mexican. When the authorities caught him they found out that he was deported 9 different time for rape, and he came back in the country and did it again.

Hell, why not, it’s not like we are punishing them.

EDMONDS, Wash. –

The KING 5 Investigators have learned that an illegal immigrant accused of raping a woman in Edmonds Sunday has been deported nine times. That’s much more than previously reported.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement won’t comment on the case of Jose Lopez Madrigal. But KING 5 got the information through confidential sources and documents.

Larry Klein was the man who heard the alleged victim’s cries for help. Police say the suspect pulled the woman off the street to a dumpster and raped her.

“I could see the back of his head. I could see his pants were down. I could see her lying on the ground. I could hear her crying, but I couldn’t really see her face,” said Klein.

Klein called police, who quickly arrested the suspect. But learning his identity took much longer because of some 30 aliases. It was only through fingerprints that they identified him as Madrigal, a Mexican citizen.

Madrigal’s arrest and immigration record includes a staggering number of contacts with law enforcement since 1989. That’s the year he was convicted of theft using a firearm in California. 

He was deported a couple of times after that. Then in 1999, he was arrested for drug sales in both San Diego and San Francisco. Records show that he was deported three times that year between April and August.

He was arrested for drugs again in Stockton, Calif. in 2000. In 2002, he pleaded to third degree sexual assault in Denver. Later that year, he was deported again. And in 2003, records show he was deported three more times.

People who live near the scene of Sunday’s alleged rape wonder how it could keep happening.

“Makes you wonder, what are we doing wrong? How is he getting back in here?” said Kirby Aumick.

“It’s troubling. I mean, if this man should not have been in this country, he should have been behind bars then, really, this is a senseless tragedy,” said Klein.

According to our sources, Madrigal’s last contact before Sunday was around 2003. So, it’s not clear how much of that time Madrigal was in this country.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has refused to comment on the case which started making national headlines when it was learned that Madrigal had been deported several times prior to the Edmonds case.

In reviewing records and talking with confidential sources, the KING 5 Investigators learned just how extensive Madrigal’s immigration and arrest record is.

They found he was first deported in California in 1989 and since then he’s returned from his Mexican homeland and been arrested for drug crimes, a sex assault in Colorado and other offenses.
One criminal justice source says Madrigal is a “poster boy” for the federal governments ineffectiveness at keeping the most serious “criminal aliens” – illegals who commit crimes – out of the  United States.

I think many Americans will begin to realize that the problems we face are not just criminal, but a declaration of war by the Mexican government.

I say that because of the way the Mexican President dared to tell us we should let his people into our country, when he will not do the same thing for foreigners coming into Mexico.

People south of the border wouldn’t be risking their lives and safety if so many American businesses didn’t hire illegal immigrants to begin with. Businesses want cheap labor so they look the other way when hiring them. We have plenty of laws already on the books about this. We don’t need more laws, just enforcement of the current ones. Take away the carrot and the horse won’t follow.

May 29, 2010

#27 Chuck Wolk :

Only partially true.
That is because the biggest carrot comes from our government giving them the same financial, medical, educational benefits they give American citizens.

The actual number of illegals working in America are almost a drop in the bucket compared to the number that are sitting on their ass collecting some sort of government assistance that they would never collect from their government in Mexico.

Rhere was a time that most had jobs, but that was a probably back in the 70’s and 80’s before the courts ruled they could suck off the government tax payed tits.

Like popping out babies in the US then boo hooing when they get deported & separated from their families – they knew what they were doing when they snuck across the border.

You have a valid point, because every illegal alien is guilty of a crime. Even if their only crime is illegally entering the USA, that is still a crime.

True virtue starts with following the laws of man that are not immoral. Illegally entering the United States is not breaking an immoral law, so that makes them individuals with very little sense of virtue or morality as you said.

Keep talking America while our adversaries keep taking the actions.

Please don’t make the mistake of twisting the facts and problems in order to blame America, Americans or American business. NOBODY would risk their lives to come here if their own condition and their own country’s condition was not horrible. The entire fault is with MEXICO and it’s corrupt government. Mexico is a country replete with wealth and natural resources. They could have a thriving economy that allowed progress, jobs and life styles like ours. They choose, however, to oppress business and their own people, stifling growth and progress. This has been confirmed by my conversations with the illegals I know personally.

Jun 26, 2010
10:52 pm

Russ – your grandparents entered LEGALLY and that process still exists. People enter America legally all the time. The process is still there and it still works. So your premise that we need to allow people in like we did for your ancestors is quite silly and it is NOT the problem. The problem is many-fold, but the solution begins with SECURING THE BORDER.

I live in Phoenix. I have a friend who is a deputy sherriff. Six or seven years ago he informed me of a memo that was sent to all the law enforcement members that said Al Qaada operatives had been identified crossing the Arizona border.

Border security is WAY MORE than just stopping desperate Mexicans from flooding in illegally. It’s also a matter of national defense.

Let’s get real here and demand our socialist president and congress protect us like the Constitution charges them to do. So far they are NOT doing their jobs.

I find it interesting that it is the left that claims they care about the rights of the abused are the ones who are so violently opposed to Arizona’s new illegal alien law.

By their actions the left is supporting these rapes and other atrocities. By refusing to support the law of the federal government, the left supports the evil that eminates from those who commit these crimes.

But then again, are we surprised that the left would condone such violent behavior against women when they also oppose God, Christ and the American values that have up until Obama created the greatest society the world has ever known?
