ICE Arrests Salvadoran Sex Predators

ICE Arrests Salvadoran Sex Predators

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested sex predators from El Salvador who are illegally present in the United States during enforcement actions on the East Coast this month.

Two Salvadoran men convicted of heinous sex crimes were nabbed by ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) agents in New York and Virginia just three days apart.

In at least one case, the victim was underage.

On May 14, Joe Alfredo Maldonado was arrested after years on the loose following a conviction for sexual battery in Prince William County, VA.

Maldonado illegally entered the U.S. at an unknown location and date prior to his first arrest and conviction for driving while intoxicated in 2014.

“The Prince William County Police Department arrested Maldonado Feb. 25, 2020, for felony forcible sodomy, by force, threat, etc., on a victim age 13 or older. The Prince William District Court convicted him of sexual battery Jan. 8, 2021, and sentenced him to 364 days of imprisonment,” ICE explained in a press release.

Oddly, ICE states that their ERO Washington, D.C. office unsuccessfully attempted to lodge a detainer against Maldonado with the Prince William County Adult Detention Center on Aug. 20, 2020 — some six months after his arrest but nearly five months prior to his conviction.

Maldonado was finally apprehended by ICE this month near his residence in Manassas, VA.

On May 17, a 28-year-old registered sex offender from El Salvador was arrested by ICE ERO agents in Yaphank, NY.

The Salvadoran says he illegally entered the U.S. at an unspecified location on April 10, 2022.

In January of 2023, he was arrested for raping a victim under 15 years old in Riverhead, NY.

He was convicted of rape in the second degree on Aug. 2, 2023, and sentenced to just 364 days in prison on Sept. 21.

The Salvadoran was released Suffolk County Correctional Center this month and immediately taken into custody by ICE agents from the ERO New York City office.
