Ohio law enforcement officials have arrested one illegal alien and now federal authorities are launching a nationwide manhunt for three additional illegal aliens accused of kidnapping and raping two Ohio teenage sisters.
The sisters, ages 13 and 14, managed to escape the four illegal aliens after being kidnapped while staying in a hotel with their parents and held against their will.
Authorities have already taken 24-year-old Guatemalan national Simon Juan Thomas into custody and charged him with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. CNN reports:
One suspect, David Ramos Contreras, 27, of Mexico, was spotted Saturday with two women in a lightly colored vehicle at a Walmart in Holland, Ohio, said police, who are asking for the public's help in their pursuit of the suspects. ...
Nationwide warrants were issued for Contreras, Juan Garcia Rios Adiel and Arnulfo Ramos after an alleged incident last week at a Days Inn motel in Bowling Green, Deputy Chief Justin White said Tuesday in a statement.
White said that all four suspects had "fraudulent paperwork" documenting their immigration statuses and that Contreras had been previously deported.
Bowling Green police said that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are involved in the nationwide manhunt.
The horrifying story comes as Democrats have called for the abolishment of ICE, which is responsible for enforcing U.S. immigration laws and for deporting illegal aliens.
A former White House official told NBC News that Trump "has taken the abolish ICE thing, he’s wrapping it around the necks of the Democrats and he views it as his blunt instrument to defeat the Democrats in 2018 and whoever they put up in 2020."
