Illegal Alien Arrested for Child Molestation after Being Released by ‘Sanctuary City’

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.

Todd M. Lyons, director of the Boston field office of Enforcement Removal Operations, announced the charges.

In a statement, Lyons said:

“This Guatemalan national has disregarded U.S. immigration laws and has been charged with horrific crimes against a Rhode Island child.

“We will continue to apprehend and remove egregious offenders who prey on the most vulnerable in our society.”

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 Institute in Cranston, Rhode Island where he was being held.

The request to notify immigration authorities of his pending release from the facility was ignored.

Authorities said he was freed in April 2023.

Once back on the streets, the illegal alien predator was free to target more children, which he took advantage of.

His previous child molestation case remains pending.

Multiple jurisdictions across the country typically ignore detainer requests from ICE.

The requests are ignored because of so-called “sanctuary city” policies that forbid local authorities from cooperating with immigration officials.

ICE has said those policies put the public at risk by releasing dangerous criminals back onto the street.
