In an effort to undo anything and everything President Trump did–good or bad–for America during his first four years as president, Biden has ended Operation Talon.
Operation Talon was a program created to eliminate illegal aliens who commit sex offenses and help prevent human trafficking. This is something every American on any point of the political spectrum should support. Does Biden condone sex offenders, want unrest and crime to further disintegrate America, or is he simply an idiot?
It is so hard to say.
But, regardless of motives, 18 Attorneys General signed a letter e condemning Joe Biden’s bizarre decision.
South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson joined a coalition of 18 state attorneys general to urge Biden to reverse the cancellation, according to ABC 4 News.
“We’re working hard to fight human trafficking and sex crimes in South Carolina and allowing convicted sex offenders who are here illegally to remain in our country makes absolutely no sense,” Wilson said. “These trafficking and sex crimes are repugnant to human decency generally and to children specifically,” he added.
Does anybody–besides Joe Biden–contest this? The AGs went on:
“The United States’ population of illegal immigrants includes disturbingly large numbers of criminals with prior convictions for sexual crimes,” the letter reads. “According to data collected by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, during the period from October 2014 to May 2018 ICE arrested 19,572 illegal aliens with criminal convictions for whom the most serious prior conviction was a conviction for a sex-related offense.”
“Meanwhile, an increasing number of illegal aliens are entering the United States after having been previously convicted of sexual offenses,” it continues. “The cancellation of [Operation Talon] effectively broadcasts to the world that the United States is now a sanctuary jurisdiction for sexual predators. This message creates a perverse incentive for foreign sexual predators to seek to enter the United States illegally and assault more victims, both in the process of unlawful migration and after they arrive. It will also broadcast the message to other criminal aliens who have committed other offenses that any kind of robust enforcement against them is unlikely.”
The letter begs perhaps the most important question: “If the United States will not remove even convicted sex offenders, whom will it remove?”
