Republicans want info on illegal immigrant accused of rape near DC

House and Senate Republicans want details on an illegal immigrant accused of a brutal rape outside Washington, D.C.

House and Senate Judiciary Chairmen Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, want to know how the accused rapist entered the United States and whether he had a criminal history that did not lead to his deportation sooner.
