Suspected Illegal Aliens Arrested For Crimes Against Children

Chambers County Sheriff’s Office put out a statement on Facebook saying that they executed a search warrant on a house in Baytown, Texas, following an investigation from an Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. The search resulted in the arrests of ten “potentially” illegal aliens from Asia and Guatemala in possession of inappropriate images of children.


ICAC was a key leader in the investigation that led to the arrests. The organization is a national network of 61 coordinated task forces with over 5,400 federal, state, and local law enforcement members dedicated to investigating internet crimes against children. ICAC provides fantastic resources for parents to help them understand the dangers of the internet and what they can do to help protect their kids. They also have a tipline that allows them to field calls and coordinate with various law enforcement agencies to create cases and make arrests. 


The suspects were found in an apparent “stash house,” which is commonly used to hide large numbers of illegal aliens attempting to evade capture. This case in Baytown is yet another example of the threats coming across our Southern border. Texans are feeling the effects of the border crisis on a daily basis, yet the federal government refuses to do anything about it. 


In less developed countries, where most migrants coming over the Southern border are from, crimes against children are a frequent occurrence and carry a minimal conviction rate for offenders. Pedophiles in third-world countries often face no prosecution and are free to find their way to the U.S.-Mexico border. When they get detained by the U.S. Border Patrol, there is no way to identify their prior criminal history, and they are allowed to walk into our communities thanks to the lax policies of the federal government. The incident in Baytown is just another example of the catastrophic impact the border situation has had on American communities. These men deserve the highest form of punishment possible. 


Texas families are clearly under attack. Law enforcement and other agencies like ICAC  are doing what they can to prevent these situations from happening, but their reach only goes so far. It is the job of parents to step up and take action. Monitor your child’s social media and internet activity to ensure predators cannot contact them. Educate your children on the risks of the internet and ensure they have a thorough understanding of different threats and how to prevent them. The most important thing you can do is report what you see to the correct authorities so they can take action and prosecute predators, taking them off the streets and creating a safer Texas.
