ICE Arrests Guatemalan Illegal Convicted of Sexually Assaulting Young Child

Last week, ICE arrested a Guatemalan illegal alien who was convicted of sexually assaulting a child under 14 years old.

ICE reports that despite an ICE detainer against him, the 34-year-old Guatemalan illegal alien was previously released by the Gloucester District Court in Massachusetts.

ICE said in a statement:

“On Feb. 21, Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Boston arrested an unlawfully present 34-year-old citizen of Guatemala in Gloucester who was recently convicted locally of indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14.

“The unlawfully present Guatemalan national had been released by the Gloucester District Court, despite ERO Boston having filed an immigration detainer against him.”

“The arrest was part of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) most recent national enforcement effort, which focused on the apprehension of unlawfully present noncitizen sex offenders.

“ERO officers apprehended 275 unlawfully present noncitizen sex offenders during the nationwide law enforcement effort that took place between Feb. 5 and Feb. 16.” ICE said.

“This individual represented a dire threat to the residents of Massachusetts,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons.

“Unlawfully present, convicted sex offenders should not be given the opportunity to re-offend,” he added.

“The victim of his crimes deserves better from our justice system.

“The men and women of ERO Boston will continue to protect our communities from such threats.”

This marks the second instance in the past month where an illegal alien accused of rape was released in Massachusetts.

Last month, Boston authorities released one of the illegal aliens from Haiti under Joe Biden’s administration who was charged with raping a disabled person, defying a detainer from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the 31-year-old illegal entered the US through Joe Biden’s open border invitation in December 2022 at the Brownsville, Texas port of entry.
