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.

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
