Illegal Immigration is more than just a political talking point; the left seems determined to make us an open-border country no matter the cost. Each week, Liberty Nation recognizes the Americans who must pay it.
Week of July 3 – 10
ICE Removes 37 Cambodian Nationals
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) along with Enforcement and Removal Operations (EURO) removed 37 Cambodian nationals and returned them to their home country after immigration court proceedings. Of the 37 removed, 35 were convicted criminals.
Jeffrey Lynch, acting assistant director for removals, said:
“ERO carries out its mission to remove aliens who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety, as well as those who undermine the integrity of our immigration laws with the utmost professionalism daily, and often in the face of adversity. This most recent removal flight took 35 criminals, many convicted of the most heinous possible crimes, off our streets and made our communities safer.”
The list of crimes committed by these nationals include:
- Two counts of murder.
- Two counts of rape.
- Five counts of aggravated assault with a weapon.
- Two counts of aggravated assault.
- Three counts of attempted murder.
- Child abuse.
- Lewd act on a minor.
- Two counts of firearm possession.
- Three counts of robbery.
- Auto theft.
- Seven drug convictions.
ICE reported that removals to Cambodia increased 279% from Fiscal Year 2017 to Fiscal Year 2018. However, the organization said that there are still approximately 1,900 Cambodian nationals in the United States that have a final order of removal, and of those, nearly 1,400 are convicted criminals.
ICE: 2019 Second Quarter Enforcement Data
The data gathered here are from statistics from January through March 2019. According to the report, “more than 85 percent of aliens arrested by ICE Enforcement and Removal Operation officers, and more than 91 percent of aliens removed from the interior of the United States, had received criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.”
In the first two quarters of FY19, arrests of criminal aliens were down by 14% compared to the same time period in FY18. However, ICE removals from US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehensions have increased by 10% for the same time period.

North Carolinians for Immigration Reform and Enforcement (NCFIRE)
Each month, NCFIRE posts a list of sexual crimes committed against children by illegal immigrants. The numbers are staggering – especially considering they’re just for one state. Just take a look at the previous three months’ worth of statistics.
- 14 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 45 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 26 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 95 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 25 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 43 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 20 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 56 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
Add those numbers to the previously convicted immigrants listed above, and that still barely represents a drop in the bucket of just how many children are being sexually abused by people who shouldn’t have been here to begin with.
Sanctuary cities and states are only making it easier for predators to remain in our country while preying on our children.
