State AGs respond to Biden cancelling sex offender crackdown

Across the nation, state Attorneys General are attempting to persade President Biden to reverse his decision to cancel Operation Talon, a nationwide operation to remove illegal immigrants who are convicted sex offenders.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt is leading the charge to keep the successful Trump administration law enforcement effort in place.

“I’m pleased to lead this coalition of 17 other states in urging President Biden to reverse the decision to cancel Operation Talon, which focuses on removing convicted sex offenders who are illegally in the United States,” Schmitt said, according to Townhall. “Broadcasting that sexual predators and traffickers are potentially immune from deportation or other legal action only worsens the crises of sexual assault and trafficking at the border and potentially in Missouri. In combating human trafficking in Missouri, we strive to send the message that our state is inhospitable to trafficking through our actions and initiatives. The United States needs to send the same message.”

The cancellation of the program, they write, sends a dangerous message to the world.

“The cancellation of this program 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 less heinous offenses that any kind of robust enforcement against them is extremely unlikely.”

“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.”

Schmitt’s message also was signed by the attorneys general from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.

As former ICE director Thomas Homan explained on Fox News, the Biden administration’s more lax approach to illegal immigration is going to become a serious issue.

“You have to commit a serious felony and be convicted of it to be even prioritized for arrest and removal, and that sends a message to the rest of the world,” he said. “If you can get by the Border Patrol, as long as you are not convicted of a serious felony after you’re here, you can stay, because ICE isn’t looking for you.”

The letter ends by asking the most important question: “If the United States will not remove even convicted sex offenders, whom will it remove?”
