As a part of Operation Cross Country XIII, the FBI conducted numerous stings on childhood sex traffickers as well as those looking to take advantage of them. As usual, the operation was successful, with 126 arrested for child sexual abuse and human trafficking, as well as an additional 68 who were arrested for trafficking.
Bay County, FL netted 19 arrests alone. Among those 19 arrests were seven illegal aliens. Those seven were identified by Fox News as:
- 32-year-old Jesus Rangel De La Cruz
- 37-year-old Nery Antonio Bonilla Galvez
- 25-year-old Flavio Cruz
- 36-year-old Jose Arizmendi
- 26-year-old Robinson Andres Mancheno Monar
- 18-year-old Carlos Mejia Ruiz
- 23-year-old Shemar Pearson
While not named in the report, one was identified as arriving legally via a B-2 tourist visa and another on a J-1 exchange visitor visa. Both were slated to depart in 2021, but both failed to do so. In total, 14 of the 19 were arrested for traveling to engage in sexual activity with a minor, and another five were arrested for possession of child pornography.
Attorney General Merrick Garland provided a statement about the sting. “Sex traffickers exploit and endanger some of the most vulnerable members of our society and cause their victims unimaginable harm. This operation, which located 59 actively missing children, builds on the tremendous work the FBI has undertaken over many years to rescue minor victims and arrest those responsible for these unspeakable crimes.”
This is everything President Biden stands for. Rampant child sexual assault, illegals everywhere, and chaos are the story of the day. It will be interesting to see if he still lets them stay in the US or if he sends them back to their home countries.
