Only months ago, in their tolerant open-border ignorance, the Biden administration canceled a program that deported illegal immigrants convicted of sex crimes. As a result, the Border Patrol has reported a horrendous statistic of a skyrocketed 3,166% increase in six offenders crossing the border into the United States from Mexico.
“Known as Operation Talon, the initiative was launched in the final weeks of the Trump administration and was run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)” reports Judicial Watch. A mere one month after Biden took over the oval office, he canceled Operation Talon.
Mainstream media gave virtually zero coverage of the cancellation, or that it ignited “outrage among law enforcement and elected officials around the country,” which was a terrible move “considering that between October 2014 and May 2018 ICE arrested nearly 20,000 illegal immigrants previously convicted of sex-related offenses including child molestation, rape, sexual assault, and human trafficking, according to data collected by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC)” reports Judicial Watch.
In a released statement, the frontline Homeland Security agency disclosed that “between May 17 and 23, agents arrested Mexican nationals with felony convictions including forcible sexual abuse, sexual assault of a child under 14, sexual assault of a child, sexual assault, sexual conduct with a person under 13 and a registered sexual offender.” Two Honduran nationals with felony convictions for statutory rape and second-degree sexual assault of a child have also been arrested.
Judicial Watch reports:
More than a dozen attorneys general blasted the administration for killing Operation Talon and warned the president in a letter of the repercussions. They specifically mention that it could encourage sexual predators seeking to enter the U.S. illegally. “The cancellation of this program effectively broadcasts to the world that the United States is now a sanctuary jurisdiction for sexual predators,” the attorneys general write.
“This message creates a perverse incentive for foreign sexual predators to seek to enter the United States illegally and assault more victims, both in the process of unlawful migration and after they arrive. It will also broadcast the message to other criminal aliens who have committed other offenses that any kind of robust enforcement against them is unlikely.” The signatories include the attorney general of Florida, Alabama, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, and Kentucky, among others. The chief legal officers proceed to ask: “If the United States will not remove even convicted sex offenders, whom will it remove?”
The warning about more sex offenders entering the U.S. illegally has evidently materialized. During a recent one-week period, Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector in Texas arrested 10 convicted sex offenders shortly after crossing into the U.S. illegally.
