It seems that the Feds efforts to round-up and deport illegal alien sex-offenders is paying off -
Federal agents and Nassau police fanned out across the county Tuesday starting at 5 a.m., rousting the sex offenders out of their sleep, apprehending others on the streets and arresting some as they showed up for appointments with probation officers.
Officials said 25 were rounded up in Tuesday's sweep and taken to a federal detention facility. They also disclosed that agents had earlier arrested 16 immigrants in Nassau over the past few months.
About 85 percent of the convicted sex offenders victimized children, some as young as 9, said Salvatore Dalessandro, deputy special agent in charge of the New York office of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
"We are putting every alien criminal sex offender on notice," Dalessandro said. "We will find you, arrest you and deport you from the United States."
Good job. The feds have arrested 5,300 assholes since Operation Predator started in July 2003. Of course, the offenders are the victims -
The deportations are unfair, some relatives said.
Wilfredo Torres' family said the 23-year-old Freeport resident arrested Tuesday was not a sexual predator. Instead, he had a consensual relationship with a girl they believed was 16 but turned out to be younger, they said. Torres, from El Salvador, served a year in jail and has since worked long hours at a beverage store.
"He made a mistake," said his brother, Jose Torres. "He was with a minor, but he's never been a bad person."
Sure, he's not a bad person Mr. Torres. Your brother was arrested for statutory rape and in the country illegally, but he's not a bad guy and you're not an effing menso.
