14 is not OLD ENOUGH to give 'consent', unless you're in Mexico...

This barbaric “custom” is perfectly acceptable in some Muslim countries, but it's not going to be tolerated here. If these people cannot conform to the culture and mores of the U.S., they need to remain in their countries of origin.

There was an honor killing in the suburb of Oak Forest, IL about 2 months ago.

This idiot set the apartment building on fire because he didn't like his daughters' husband.

Quote:
MARKHAM, Illinois (AP) -- A suburban Chicago man is accused of setting an apartment fire -- killing his pregnant daughter, her husband and their young child -- because the son-in-law didn't ask permission for the marriage, prosecutors said.

It took firefighters three hours to extinguish the blaze, which gutted the 36-unit Le Claire Station Apartments.

Subhash Chander, 57, of Oak Forest, Illinois, was ordered held without bond Tuesday on three counts of first-degree murder, one count of intentional homicide of an unborn child and one count of aggravated arson.

You would think they would leave the crazy in their homeland.

O/T but not really: Does anyone know if a mental competency test is administered as a requirement for legal immigration to the US?

Another law that illegals can change as they please? It's okay for illegals to rape children that "consent" or do you mean we must move the age of sexual consent to that in their own countries to cater to their sexual perversions?

The age of consent in the USA is 18, not 14. A child cannot give consent.

Some states the age of consent is age 16 (or younger).

From the website...

Quote:
If more than one age is given then the law within that country or state varies according to region or circumstances. In particular, some countries have regional laws that may overrule the federal law. Also in some cases the age of consent is lower when partners are of a similar age. Where the symbol ? is used, information is either incomplete or unavailable.
22 to 14 is NOT a 'similar' age...

Right, because in the US people don't do that.

I think that is BS. I am a woman and I know how many of us are at age 14. At age of 14 many of us have the power to do a lot of damage to a boys life if we wanted to and it happens every day. Statutory rape is in way too many cases a bunch of crap! When my 2 year old boy gets old enough to understand I will make sure I tell him to ID the girls he go out with just in case. Make sure she is at least 20 to be on the safe side.
