Guatemalan in US illegally man captured to face child molestation charge

A Guatemalan man living in the United States illegally was arrested on child sexual abuse charges earlier this month after being released from custody last year, immigration officials announced Friday.

The unidentified man was taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Immigration Services removal officers on February 6. He is facing sex crime charges in Providence, Rhode Island, according to ICE.

“This Guatemalan flouted U.S. immigration laws and was charged with a horrific crime against a child in Rhode Island,” said Todd M. Lyons, Boston Field Office Director of Forced Removal Operations. “We will continue to arrest and remove the worst criminals who prey on the most vulnerable in society.”

Immigration authorities do not know when the suspect entered the United States. The suspect was arrested in Providence in March 2023 and charged with child sexual abuse.

Immigration authorities filed a detention request with the Adult Correctional Facility in Cranston, Rhode Island, where he was being held. Authorities said requests to notify immigration authorities of his pending release from the facility were ignored and he was released in April 2023.

His child sexual abuse case is still pending.

Jurisdictions across the country typically ignore detainer requests from ICE because of so-called sanctuary city policies that prohibit local governments from cooperating with immigration authorities.

ICE said these policies endanger the public by putting dangerous criminals back on the streets.
