The Trump administration has had tremendous amounts of success in slowing illegal immigration at the border.
But another sinister element to the illegal alien question is the removal of those already illegally here, in particular, the ones who are the most dangerous.
And the administration has demonstrated they are very serious about that as well.
ICE announced the big arrest that took out some very dangerous people.
From Washington Examiner:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers in New York arrested 32 immigrant sex offenders during a sting operation in Long Island that concluded Aug. 3, according to a statement issued Tuesday.
Of the 32 arrested by ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations team, 12 were registered sex offenders. ICE’s New York Field Office confirmed to the Washington Examiner that all 32 people were in the country unlawfully or were subject to removal proceedings based on their prior convictions.
This was all part of ICE’s 10-day Operation SOAR (Sex Offender Alien Removal) crackdown.
Everyone arrested had been convicted of criminal charges that ranged from sexual abuse to first-degree rape.
And if Obama were still president, these people would likely still be allowed to go free.
Officers made arrests mostly in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, east of Brooklyn and Queens. Those apprehended were from the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Mexico, Peru, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Among the arrestees was a 24-year-old Salvadoran national who had been criminally charged with first-degree sexual abuse and sexual contact of a four-year-old child. A 32-year-old Honduran man was taken into custody over prior convictions of criminal sexual act in the third-degree, forcible touching, endangering the welfare of a child, and sexual abuse in the third-degree. He had been sentenced to 10 years of probation supervision for his crime against a 15-year-old female.
Those arrested will now be held pending deportation.
Thankfully, now ICE is actually allowed to enforce the law to protect us all.
Now build that damn wall! Keep these criminals out!
