Belizean wanted in Texas on sex charges captured in New Jersey

Posted: Monday, September 7, 2020. 8:46 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: An unnamed Belizean, wanted in the U.S. state of Texas on a warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a minor, was picked up by the Enforcement and Removal Operations Unit of United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sometime in July and August, according to The Citizen News (Morris County, New Jersey).

The individual, 31 years old, was picked up in the town of Rockaway, New Jersey, one of 77 foreign nationals arrested during enforcement actions conducted by ICE throughout the state between July 22 and August 20, per an ICE statement given Tuesday, September 1. The operation targeted individuals with arrests or convictions for assault, domestic violence or other crimes involving victims.

ICE said it had arrested more than 2,000 wanted persons living illegally in the United States or who face deportation because of their criminal histories, The Citizen News reported. Those taken into custody will be sent back home if already facing a final order for removal, or will go through such a proceeding with an immigration judge.

A vast majority of arrestees on immigration charges, 85 per cent, already had criminal convictions or pending criminals charges, mostly for domestic violence but also including homicide, sexual assault on a minor, criminal sexual contact, child fondling, possession of marijuana, driving under the influence, fraud, possession of a weapon, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, larceny, rioting, public order crimes, robbery, burglary and illegal re-entry according to ICE. They ranged in age from 19 to 63 years old.

There is no word on the status of the Belizean mentioned in the report, or how many Belizeans were arrested.

The issue of immigration and law and order is key on the ballot in the upcoming American elections in November.
