It might have been possible to prevent this tragedy

It might have been possible to prevent the tragic rape, sexual abuse, strangulation and kidnapping of 2 young girls right here in Marion County.  Juan De Dios Cruz-Rojas has lived and worked just outside Salem, Oregon for the past 10 years.  He is in the country illegally. Oregon's Governor and the state legislature could have made the presence of this monster in our state much more difficult.  They have had ample opportunity to pass a mandatory E-Verify bill.  Please, call, write, email or visit your legislators and the Governor and insist that they pass mandatory E-Verify during this coming session.
