Authorities rounded up six illegal aliens this morning with plans to deport them because they were convicted of sex-related offenses.
Three of the men were convicted of sex crimes against 14-year-old girls, while the others victimized adults, including a disabled woman. Several of them are registered sex offenders.
The arrests were the latest in a series ordered by U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials. Since 2003, federal authorities, with help from the Westchester County Probation Department, have arrested nearly 100 immigrants in a program targeting sex offenders for deportation.
The men arrested today had already been found guilty and were re-arrested when they reported to the Probation Department in the county courthouse for what they thought would be routine visits.
