Police Arrest Illegal Alien On 100 Counts Of Child Sex Crimes
Criminal was previously deported and a registered sex offender in California
A previously deported illegal alien with a long list of child sex crimes has been arrested by police in Louisiana, according to reports.
Miguel Martinez, who was deported from the United States in 2005, was also a registered sex offender in the state of California.
Martinez was arrested after police discovered hundreds of child porn images and videos in his possession.
Martinez was arrested in Harvey, where he was living illegally, according to official reports by the Louisiana Attorney General’s office.
He now faces 100 counts of possession of child pornography involving children under 13 years, one count of production under the age of 13, and one count of sexual battery of a child under the age of 13.
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry confirmed the arrest on Tuesday.
“Internet crimes against children continuously inflict damage,” Landry's statement read.
“This arrest should serve as a wake-up call to Congress,” Landry continued.“By not securing our borders and properly vetting those coming into our nation, we have seen lives lost and destroyed.”
“Illegal immigration has real-life consequences—countless numbers of needless crime victims, including too many Louisiana families and children.
"For their sake—I again urge Congress to realize the national emergency we have at our southern border, support President Trump, build the wall and help us make our communities safer.”
Cyber Crime Unit, LBI Fugitive Apprehension Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, and Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office worked together to capture the suspect.
Officials stated that more charges may be brought against Martinez.
Landry later issued a statement urging an appeal for greater border security:
“It’s time to join @POTUS in demanding action on our Southern Border. #BuildTheWall”
Presdient Donald Trump has already secured funding of one hundred eleven miles of new or replacement wall, which is either in progress or already under construction, according to an administration official.
The Trump administration has obtained funding for nearly 445 miles of the total 722-mile goal, according to Daily Caller analysis reported.
The funding will only be valid if the national emergency and executive action funding are sustained in court challenges.
But the figure only constitutes an 18-foot bollard wall fencing or 32-foot levee wall fencing, the administration official emphasized.
