“In the last two years, our brave ICE officers made 226,000 arrests of criminal aliens, including those charged or convicted of nearly 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 killings. Or murders. We are joined tonight by one of those law enforcement heroes, ICE Special Agent Elvin Hernandez.
When Elvin was a boy, he and his family legally immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic. At the age of eight, Elvin told his dad he wanted to become a special agent. Today, leads investigations into the scourge of international sex trafficking. Elvin says, “If I can make sure these young girls get their justice, I’ve done my job.” Thanks to his work and that of his incredible colleagues, more than 300 women and girls have been rescued from the horror of this terrible situation, and more than 1,500 sadistic traffickers have been put behind bars.
