Hundreds of miles from the southern border, Americans find themselves victims of violent crimes committed by repeat offenders illegally entering the U.S.
While numerous examples exist, in five examples identified by The Center Square, all of the alleged perpetrators illegally entered the U.S. “on an unknown date at an unknown location,” according to U.S. Customs & Immigration Enforcement.
In New Jersey, ICE’s Enforcement Removal Operations (ICE-ERO)-Newark agents recently arrested a Mexican national in Bridgeton, New Jersey, who was convicted of endangering-sexual conduct with a child. A state judge gave the Mexican national a three-year suspended prison sentence and supervised parole for life.
Prior to his conviction and illegal entry, he was previously removed from the U.S. in March 2005 and March 2009. He is currently in ICE-ERO custody, pending his third removal from the U.S.
