ICE Officers Arrest 8 Immigrants Connected To Pedophile Ring

ICE officials arrest 8 connected to pedophile ring


 Federal Immigration Officials arrested eight immigrants connected to a child sex trafficking ring at the Hampton in Highland Apartments on Tuesday.  According to ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer, the officials originally had their sights set on just one individual – a convicted pedophile who had escaped custody. reports: The individual — who was arrested on allegations of failing to register as a sex offender — “was encountered with seven other persons,” ICE said. Those seven people were arrested for immigration violations.

 Of the eight, one has since been released because he was already in deportation proceedings, according to ICE. The others remain in custody pending disposition of their cases, Neudauer said.

 The arrests occurred about 12:30 p.m. near 44th Street and Prairie Avenue in Highland during a construction crew’s lunch break, according to Maria Morales, who lives in the neighborhood.

 Morales said she and her husband took photographs as they watched the roundup unfold about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. About 30 minutes to an hour before that, her husband noticed several vehicles with tinted windows parked nearby, she said.

“When we saw the trucks, we were thinking something is going on, maybe FBI or something, because they didn’t have any names on the trucks. The windows (were tinted),” she said.

 Several workers were sitting in the grass eating lunch when they were encountered by the federal agents, she said. Most, but not all, were arrested, she said.

“From the window, I could see them eating and then they started the body searches, taking everything out of their pockets. They were placed in handcuffs one by one,” she said.

 Morales said she “feels bad” for the workers who were not the target of ICE that day but were picked up anyway and face deportation.

“When I saw them, I thought, ‘Why are they coming to look for these working people?’ Trump said he was only going to report the people with criminal records, and stuff like that. Well, these people are working so hard for their money. And then we find out they were looking for only one person,” Morales said.

 Dem Governor Threatens Trump: “Something’s Got To Happen To This Guy… He’s Sabotaging The World Order”

“If we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.”

Another Democrat has called for ‘something to happen’ to President Trump in order to save the democratic process in America.

California Gov. Jerry Brown made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC, while discussing the death toll during hurricanes last year in Puerto Rico.

“Well, the problem is, we never had a president who was engaged in this kind of behavior,” Brown declared.

“I mean he’s not telling the truth. He keeps changing his mind. He’s sabotaging the world order in many respects.” the Governor claimed.

“So it’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country,” he continued.

“The Democrats will win and then Trump — well, something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.” Brown urged.

The tacit threat comes in the wake of Maxine Waters encouraging anti-Trumpers to “knock off” the President.
