According to the Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, Joe Biden has terminated Operation Talon, an initiative spearheaded by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) which targets illegal immigrants with sex crime convictions. One can just imagine that Biden winked at the cameras while doing it. Eighteen States’ Attorneys General have joined AG Moody in urging the Biden-Harris regime to restore the operation and resume deportation of these sex-criminals immediately.
As AG, not a day goes by where I’m not focused on ending #HumanTrafficking, especially the rape and torture of children—which as a mother, disgusts me. It should also disgust @POTUS & that’s why I’m calling on him to immediately reinstate Operation Talon.https://t.co/EFLrfvVCP7

In a letter signed by the 18 AG’s Eric Schmitt, Attorney General of Missouri wrote, “The undersigned Attorney General of 18 States write to express our grave concern about the recent report that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (‘ICE’) has cancelled Operation Talon, a nationwide operation targeting illegally present convicted sex offenders for removal from the United States… This ill-advised decision threatens to empower sexual predators to victimize women and children in America, and to exacerbate the tragic crises of sexual assault and sex trafficking among migrant and immigrant communities… We urge you to reconsider this decision and restore an aggressive enforcement policy against convicted sexual predators who are unlawfully present in the United States.”
According to Law Enforcement Today, Schmitt included within the letter some troubling facts
- “According to data collected by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, during the period from October 2014 to May 2018, ICE arrested 19,752 illegal aliens with criminal convictions for whom the most serious prior conviction was a conviction for a sex-related offense.
- Among many other offenses, this included at 5,565 individuals who had been convicted of sexual assault;
- 4,910 who had been convicted of child molestation, sex offenses against children, or lewd acts with a minor;
- 1,724 convicted of rape by force or weapon; 675 convicted of exploiting children through sex performance or child pornography by image or video;
- 637 convicted of forcible sodomy offenses against minors; and 115 convicted of human slavery or trafficking.”
AG Schmitt concluded with a damning admonishment for Biden,
“Encouraging sexual predators and sex traffickers to enter the United States without fear of deportation exacerbates this burgeoning crisis. We understand that ICE may have cancelled Operation Talon in response to the administration’s January 20, 2021 memo to the Department of Homeland Security calling for a stay of nearly all interior immigration enforcement. If so, this outcome demonstrates the deficiencies of a laissez-faire approach to the humanitarian crisis at our border, and within our borders. We urge you to immediately reinstate Operation Talon, adopt and aggressive enforcement policy against illegal aliens convicted of sex crimes, and send a message to sexual predators that they are not welcome in the United states of America.”
Republicans Are Calling For Answers For Why Biden Winked
Republican Congressman Paul Gosar of Arizona has raised the fate of Operation Talon to national attention. Even catching the view of independent journalist Tim Pool. Pool reported on this with Mike Cernovich to his 1.09 Million YouTube subscribers. As of this writing the video already had over 180k views. Pool entitled his video “Biden ENDS Operation To Stop Child Abusers And Traffickers, Leftist OUTRAGED Biden Is Detaining Kids”. Though Biden winked at the camera many times, it’s hard to say what his endgame is here. Ending Operation Talon and continuing to use the same holding facilities that AOC and Kamala protested against seem disingenuous at best and are enraging his base.
