Cardoso Ferreira was convicted in Brazil for the disturbing rape of a 5 year-old and was sentenced to 14 years in prison in 2019. Instead of going to jail, it seems he illegally entered the U.S.
The 37 year-old was arrested in Martha’s Vineyard last week.
According to an ICE press release:
“This undocumented Brazilian national represented a significant threat to the inhabitants of Martha’s Vineyard,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd Lyons. “He sexually assaulted a five-year-old child in his homeland and then ran from authorities when held accountable for his actions. ERO Boston will not allow such predators to threaten our residents. We will continue to apprehend and remove anyone who attempts to use our New England community as a refuge from justice.”
Of course anyone who comes into the U.S. illegally instantly should become a refuge from justice, but securing the border doesn’t seem to be a priority for the Biden administration.
In fiscal year 2022 alone, Enforcement and Removal Operations
arrested 46,396 noncitizens with criminal histories. This group had 198,498 associated charges and convictions, including 21,531 assault offenses; 8,164 sex and sexual assault offenses; 5,554 weapons offenses; 1,501 homicide-related offenses; and 1,114 kidnapping offenses.
