(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Almost 140 illegal aliens who are convicted sex offenders have been busted across the United States in a nationwide law enforcement operation, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has revealed reveals.
The sting operation was carried out between October 22 and November 4. During it, ICE agents arrested 138 illegal aliens convicted of sex crimes, including rape.
A number of the illegal immigrant sex offenders were caught in the so-called sanctuary cities or states which defy America’s immigration legislation, Breitbart News reported.
Thus, ICE agents busted 21 illegal alien sex offenders in the sanctuary city of Los Angeles, California. Fifteen more were caught in another California sanctuary city, San Francisco, while five were nabbed in the sanctuary city of Seattle, Washington.
Illegal immigrant sex offenders were also caught in the sanctuary state of New York.
Among those were a 44-year-old illegal immigrant convicted of second-degree rape and promoting prostitution in September 2017 and a 42-year-old from Bolivia convicted of first-degree rape in April 2002.
Other illegal alien sex offenders caught by the ICE agency include a national of Guatemala convicted for predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, a 65-year-old citizen of Mexico, who in March 2022 was convicted of continuous sex abuse of a child, a 49-year-old from Cameroon who in June 2022 was convicted of sexual abuse.
In Texas, ICE agents arrested a Mexican convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child. In California, they caught a Nicaraguan with convictions for assault with intent to rape, second-degree robbery, and rape with force/violence/fear of bodily injury.
“Crimes of sexual violence are among the most underreported in the United States — anyone can be a victim of this type of abuse, and our officers are dedicated to locating and apprehending known noncitizen offenders as part of their public safety mission,” said ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Executive Associate Director Corey Price in a statement.
“ERO will continue efforts such as these to remove unlawfully present individuals who have committed crimes against the innocent so they cannot continue to harm vulnerable populations within our communities,” Price added.
In an earlier sting operation, ICE arrested 175 illegal immigrant convicts, including some who had killed US citizens and others who had been arrested for drunk driving.
Under President Joe Biden’s administration, there has been an almost 50% decline in arrests of illegal aliens and a 62% decline in deportations of unlawful alien convicts.
Former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan said in May this year that Biden “is effectively deporting one illegal alien for every 100 illegal aliens” arriving at the United States-Mexico border.
