There are a lot of reasons to secure the southern border and start enforcing our immigration laws, and contrary to what liberals in the news media tell you, it’s most certainly not due to the color of anyone’s skin or nationality. Things like human trafficking, sex offenders, drug dealers, and cartel members, all of which spike our national crime rate, is why we need to build the wall and send offenders who cross the border illegally back where they came from.
A great example of this comes from a Fox News report that revealed the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency announced last Thursday that agents made over 130 arrests of illegal immigrant sex offenders as part of a massive national operation, vowing to continue their efforts to remove illegal migrants who have been convicted of such heinous crimes.
ICE stated during its announcement that its Enforcement and Removal Operations, known as ERO, apprehended 138 “unlawfully present noncitizens,” who were previously convicted sex offenders, including a few who had a current deportation order. The operation took place between the dates of Oct. 22 and Nov. 4.
Now, look at that phrase for just a moment. Are we really creating jargon like “unlawfully present noncitizens” as a means of not offending someone by using the much more succinct terms like “illegal immigrant,” “migrant,” or other words we shall not use because of the great censors in the sky? This is just getting ridiculous.
“The agency, in a release, gave a lengthy list of those arrested by agents in the operations. They include a 65-year-old Mexican convicted of continuous sex abuse of a child in March this year, a Guatemalan arrested in Chicago who had a conviction for predatory criminal sexual assault of a minor, and a 49-year-old Cameroon national convicted of sexual abuse in June,” Fox reported.
Fox then added, “Additionally, agents arrested a Bolivian in New York with a conviction of first-degree rape, a Mexican in Texas with a conviction for aggravated sexual assault of a child, and a Nicaraguan in California 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,” ERO Executive Associate Director Corey Price went on to say 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,” he continued.
Just last month, the agency announced that it had arrested 170 illegal migrants who had a record featuring multiple DUI convictions in a similar operation. And yet, for whatever reason, the federal government refuses to enforce the law and allows these individuals to come back in, where they have an increased percentage of getting into a drunk driving accidents and killing innocent people.
ICE released a statement at the time saying that the agency’s officers “make case decisions in a responsible manner, informed by their experience as law enforcement professionals and in a way that best protects against the greatest threats to the homeland.”
