An illegal alien has been arrested for molesting a child in Rhode Island and the dangerous foreign national was previously detained and released under “sanctuary city” laws last year.

Immigration authorities announced Friday that a Guatemalan man illegally living in the United States was arrested earlier this month for child sex abuse charges.

However, the criminal alien was previously detained on separate child sex abuse charges last year but was released under so-called “sanctuary” policies.

The unidentified man was taken into custody on Feb. 6 by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) removal agents.

He faces child sex crime charges in Providence, Rhode Island, ICE said.

Immigration authorities don’t know when the suspect entered the U.S.

He was arrested in Providence in March 2023 and charged with child molestation.

Immigration authorities lodged a detainer request for him with the Adult Correctional
