ICE Arrests Dozens of Illegal Alien Sex Offenders in Nationwide Sweep – EVOL

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced on Monday that it had arrested dozens of foreign nationals, many of whom were unlawfully present in the country, who were convicted of sex crimes in the United States for removal from the country.

Foreign nationals who are convicted of aggravated felonies are “deportable” from the United States under federal law and are subject to “expedited removal” proceedings to ensure they leave the country quickly. Between Feb. 5 and Feb. 16, ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) directorate arrested 275 foreign nationals who were convicted of offenses under this category, according to ICE press releases.

“The individuals identified in this operation were found guilty of committing sexual crimes, often against the most vulnerable members of our population, and therefore forfeited their right to remain in the United States,” wrote Mellissa Harper, the ICE ERO New Orleans field director, in a press release.

Last weekend, Tucson Sector agents arrested migrants: Cerda-Cortez of Mexico, convicted of felony child molestation, Felipe Y Felipe of Guatemala, convicted of felony assault w/a deadly weapon, and Ramirez-Hernandez of Mexico, convicted of felony indecent liberties with a child.
