The Washington Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) – in collaboration with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations’ (HSI) Operation Predator, participated in Operation Broken Heart from March 1 through May 31, which identified individuals using peer-to-peer networks to share child pornography, ICE announced. It stated:
“Since the launch of Operation Predator in 2003, HSI has arrested more than 16,000 individuals for crimes against children – including the production and distribution of online child pornography, traveling overseas for sex with minors, and sex trafficking of children. In fiscal year 2016, more than 2,600 child predators were arrested by HSI special agents under this initiative and more than 800 victims identified or rescued.”
Democrats and activists who support illegal immigrants, open borders, and oppose the rule of law, have been pushing for the government to terminate ICE prior to the midterm elections. While they do, the Washington Times notes, ICE officials are successfully continuing “to make America’s streets safer–removing criminals by the thousands.”
Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.) described those mocking President Trump and ICE are expressing “angry, bitter hate.” He told Fox & Friends that berating federal agents and police for upholding the law is simply unjust and unwarranted. He said,
“If you’re mad at the way laws are, get mad at Congress. Tell them to change the laws, but don’t get mad at the people who enforce the laws. They’re doing their job.”
During Operation SOAR in 2017, ICE arrested 32 illegal aliens with criminal records ranging from sexual abuse to rape. ICE also made ‘more than 4,800 criminal arrests in national anti-gang operations’ last year.
