ICE Operation Nabs a Dozen Illegal Aliens Convicted of Crimes Against Children

As more repercussions arise from the ongoing border crisis, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested at least a dozen illegal aliens with previous charges and convictions relating to child exploitation. 

Following a national operation called Operation Night Guard, conducted January 16-28, ICE arrested illegal aliens with criminal histories in at least three states, including Washington, Oregon, and Texas. 

In Texas, ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Harlingen arrested at least six illegal aliens with pending charges or convictions for murder, homicide, or assault against children.

ERO Harlingen Field Office Director Miguel Vergara said in a statement that he is pleased with the results of the operation.
