Total number of illegal immigrants arrested for child sex crimes in 2018 is 69
NCFIRE reported that police arrested 28 illegal aliens, the highest number of arrests that NCFIRE has reported in more than 2 years.
The 28 illegal immigrants arrested accumulated 89 sexual assault charges.
Police in Centre County, Pennsylvania arrested William Menelio Velasquez, 64, who lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, according to Centre Daily News.
Authorities charged Velasquez with six sexual assault felonies after he abused a girl over a four year period, starting when she was 10.
An illegal immigrant from Raleigh, North Carolina, Pedro Jaime Ensenat, plead guilty on April 2 to one count of manufacturing child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography, ABC11 reported.
Ensenat had made films of himself molesting a 10-year-old male child.
Federal agents received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about child pornography being uploaded.
Agents traced it to Ensenat’s house, obtained a search warrant, and discovered the illicit material.
Raleigh police arrested Deep Inder Singh, a 21-year-old student at North Carolina State who is an illegal immigrant, for attempting to have sex with a 12-year-old girl.
Police say Singh pretended to be 15 years old when he allegedly solicited nude photographs from the girl.
Police charged him with “one felony count each of indecent liberties with a child and attempted first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor,” according to the News and Observer.
Part of NCFIRE’s platform calls for the state to “eliminate taxpayer funding to N.C. colleges and universities that allow illegal aliens to enroll.”
This month’s report brings the total number of illegal immigrants arrested to 69 in 2018.
They have been charged with 251 counts.
NCFIRE says the numbers reported are low because some jurisdictions do not report the citizenship status of people they arrest.
