Last week, Alexander Rivas, 18, was arrested by Alexandria police, following an investigation that began in November, when the father of a 14-year-old runaway told police his daughter was living with Rivas. Court documents state that the girl was found in the gang members apartment and she was being used as a prostitute.
According to prosecutors, Rivas ran a prostitution ring, operating in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, using underage runaways. The affidavit states that the business catered to construction workers and illegal immigrants.
On a typical Friday or Saturday night, the operation would see about 100 customers paying for sex.
Rivas typically charged $50 for sexual intercourse with the girls.
Rivas is charged with sex trafficking of children by force, fraud or coercion.
A17-year-old girl told detectives that Rivas carried a machete, he nicknamed his wife, when taking her to have sex with his clients. He reportedly used the machete to intimidate anyone who tried to avoid paying.
Rivas admitted to once robbing a group of men of $1,200, and telling them: What are you going to say? That you got robbed after having sex with a minor?
Rivas remains in custody at this time.
Cases such as this one are becoming more commonplace due to a largely unprotected border, the lack of immigration enforcement and the consequential spread of gang crime.

Lucky for us the border is more secure than ever or it could be worse. Obama , Janet have it all under control. Is the Mexico border bigs sis wants congress to tour is it still a go ?
Give him about 6 aspirin and then castrate him with a dull knife.
There is a fitting symetry to your story!
This can’t be true.
The people in Virginia are being told by the politicians and the press that illegal aliens in the area are hard working, family-oriented, church-going craftsmen doing the work whites and blacks won’t do.
I just can’t believe that they are into crime, drugs, prostitution, gangs, document forgery, DUIs, etc., etc.
It just can’t be true.
Let’s punish those who say that and malign these wonderful visitors in our midst and welcome our illegals into our communities. And give them shelter at 15 to a house, free mediacl care, free welfare, free school for the children of their mistresses, and a chance to vote.
The border is the same thing. By doing a half assed job of protecting the border this country is encouraging people to make a dangerous journey and assisting the human traffickers to build their businesses.
The government is aiding and abetting criminal enterprises by not enforcing the law.
I wonder how many patient files Planned Parenthood has on these pimps’ victims. . ..
On the bright side, look at how fortunate the 14 y.o. was to be living in Virginia. Isn’t that the location of Planned Parenthood offices who will treat children for diseases and perform abortions for pimps?
I haven’t really felt like going deep into the mire of those exposes, but just reading the headlines is enough.
Send the M13 gangbanger back home with a HANO jump.
Law enforcement should have a health professional cross check with Planned Parenthood and see how many of these girls were getting their STD treatment and abortions there so they didn’t need to miss “work”. The recent LiveAction stings exposed the willingness of PPHood to turn a blind eye to sex trafficking of minors rather than turn down business. And though it is clear that many of these brothels are smuggling in illegal immigrants intentionally for exploitation, the 14 year old in the story is a runaway whose father contacted the police. That could be your neighbor’s daughter next time.
Our judicial system is wholly inadequate to deal with this type of scum.
Prison time is a joke, lethal injection causes no pain (and takes at least a decade to administer it).
There’s a big surprise.
