Moran: Child Predators Are Bad, But Only If They Use The Internet

By Greg L | 24 January 2008 | Crime, Virginia House | 46 Comments

House Democratic Caucus leader Brian Moran made a big push yesterday to provide more funding for a task force that tries to root out sexual predators.  It’s a good idea worthy of support, although if Delegate Moran was actually committed to protecting Virginia’s children from sexual predators he wouldn’t be so determined in his opposition to enrolling the Commonwealth and it’s localities in the Section 287(g) Program which would allow us to deport illegal aliens after they have committed a crime such as raping a child, rather than releasing them back into our communities.  Right now there are without a doubt illegal aliens on Virginia’s Sex Offender Registry, who are so dangerous that they have to report their whereabouts to law enforcement on a regular basis.  We know who these dangerous predators are, and Brian Moran doesn’t seem to care about deporting these illegal aliens who clearly pose a risk to our children.

So while yesterday’s press conference provided Moran an opportunity to glom for the cameras as an elected official dedicated to protecting the innocent from the predations of the wicked, it really comes across as a smokescreen.  Sure, child molesters that use the internet to find victims are a disturbing lot, and everyone supports reasonable and effective efforts to find these monsters and put them in prison.  When a child sexual predator is incarcerated in Virginia, unless he was caught in Prince William County or the very few other localities that have enrolled in the Section 287(g) Program, after that child predator completes his sentence he will be put on Virginia’s Sex Offender Registry and released back into the community, even if the criminal is an illegal alien.

Under the Section 287(g) Program, a crime of this grave nature would permit law enforcement personnel to process for deportation not only illegal aliens, but anyone who is not a citizen.  Depending on the severity of the crime, even a naturalized citizen could be subjected to having his citizenship revoked and deportation back to his country of origin.  Child sexual predators are a particularly troublesome group of ex-convicts who re-offend at rates that are so high that they are required to register with law enforcement upon their release and periodically afterwards.

I’ve questioned Brian Moran about his position on Section 287(g) several times, and at each opportunity he’s tried to duck the question and refused to say that he would support having law enforcement agencies in the Commonwealth enroll in the program. It has never troubled him before that we know that there are dangerous sexual predators in Virginia who are not legally authorized to be in the United States, we know who they are and where they are, and we could pick them up tomorrow and have them removed from Virginia.  It has never troubled him in the past that instead of releasing these monsters as we generally do now, we could have then deported so they could not re-offend and harm another child in Virginia.  But Moran is deeply troubled about folks who try to chat up kids on the internet.  Excuse us if we’re somewhat skeptical of your real motivations here, Delegate Moran.  The bigger threat here is being steadfastly ignored by you.

Moran’s initiative is a good one, but I think it would be worthwhile if the House of Delegates rolls this up into a bill that would require localities in Virginia to participate in the Section 287(g) Program, such as HB 301.  If we’re going to actually protect Virginia’s children from sexual predators, we should be concerned not only about those who use the internet to find their victims, but those who may not as well.  We should also absolutely ensure that illegal aliens are never released back into our communities and placed on the Virginia Sex Offender Registry instead of being deported.  Sure, let’s work to find the sex offenders we don’t know about, but how about we do something about the ones we do (or should) know about that are eligible for removal from our communities.

    I’m not in favor of deporting Pedophiles so they can continue their perversion elsewhere, Why not execute them here? Or if thats considered harsh, We could do like Sweden (or is it Switzerland) and castrate them. P.S this should apply to non-illegals too

    PWC - There’s not ONE country in Europe that uses castration. Maybe you ought to think before throwing out a statement regarding such an atrocious “penalty”. - I believe the last so called civilized country to use castration was the US during the lynching era which, historically, was not too long ago although I don’t think it was the government that did the dastardly deed but the lynch mob which, of course, never was found guilty of murder.

    “Why not execute them?” Seems like such an easy solution, doesn’t it? Too you, anyway.

    The Morans are idiots - dangerous idiots. Alexandria is a sanctuary city and the Morans feel this is one of the largest feathers in their caps.

    As for gelding - Molestation and abuse have nothing to do with sex - they have everything to do with power, control and denegration. They were never “men” to begin with; removing their “manhood” will only encourage them to find more creative ways to molest and abuse.

    Sex offenders do not stop just because a part of their anatomy is removed - they are “wired” to continue and won’t stop until they are dead.

    the Liberals worship these “progressive countries” (except Switzerland where gun ownership is mandatory) but balk at the idea of any kind of real penalty, Interesting how Clinton appointee Ginsburg favored lowering the age of consent to 12. It seems that Liberals hate children completely, The want to murder them as infants and if they somehow escape that, they seem to want them to be raped and if that isn’t enough they brainwash them in schools. Why? it may have to do with the fact that Conservatives are twice as fertile or maybe they get scared because of all of the the teenagers at abortion protests

    Ruth Bader “Buzzy” Ginsburg? Yeah, she’s a treat. If you want to see how the US Supreme Court has sunk - look at the bio of the justice she replaced - Byron White.

    1. College football star.
    2. Led what became the NFL in rushing for 2 years.
    3. Quit professional football to fight for his country.
    4. Rhodes scholar.
    5. Clerked at Supreme Court.
    6. Spent 15 years practicing law as a “transactional” (i.e. normal) attorney in Denver.
    7. Believed the US Supreme Court should follow the actual intent of the US Constitution.
    8. Dissented in Roe v. Wade as being too broad an interpretation of the US Constitution.
    9. Opposed a law banning contraceptives as being too broad an interpretation of the US Constitution.

    As the General Assembly contemplates almost 100 laws regarding the enforcement of laws against illegal immigrants I’d as you all to consider the logical outcome of this. Virginia is but one of 50 states. If every state has 100 laws under consideration (which they may not) that’s 5,000 state laws pertaining to a matter which is clearly a federal responsibility. Assuming Congress and the President continue to ignore their oaths to uphold the Constitution by failing to enforce federal law, this matter ends up in the US Supreme Court. Where people like Ruth Ginsburg will make the decisions.

    Lobby your federal representatives. Write to the people running for federal office. Tell them that you want them to enforce the current federal laws.

    Do not let this matter get decided in the Supreme Court.

    WRONG!!!

    http://www.stephenhalbrook.com/articles/guns-crime-swiss.html

    Although there is more per capita firepower in Switzerland than any place in the world, it is one of the safest places to be. To the delight of Americans who support the right to keep and bear arms, Switzerland is the proof in the pudding of the argument that guns don’t cause crime.

    According to the UN International Study on Firearm Regulation, in 1994 the homicide rate in England (including Wales) was 1.4 (9% involving firearms), and the robbery rate 116, per 100,000 population. In the United States, the homicide rate was almost 9.0 (70% involving firearms), and the robbery rate 234, per 100,000. England has strict gun control laws, ergo, the argument goes, the homicide rate is far lower than in the United States. However, such comparisons can be dangerous: in 1900, when England had no gun controls, the homicide rate was only 1.0 per 100,000.

    Moreover, using data through 1996, the U.S. Department of Justice study Crime and Justice concluded that in England the robbery rate was 1.4 times higher, the assault rate was 2.3 higher, and the burglary rate was 1.7 times higher than in the United States. Only the murder and rape rates in the United States were higher than in England.

    The UN Study omits Switzerland from its comparative analysis. The Swiss example contradicts the Study’s hypothesis that a high incidence of firearm ownership correlates with high violent crime.

    It has been a long day. I never said one word about Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Germany and Iceland, much less anything about their location. I do not believe those countries practice punitive surgical castration however. On the other hand, if they do….I am not interested enough to debate it.

    Once again a blog headline on BVBL that has nothing to do with the real story. I was expecting to see some diatribe about Moran issuing some statement that the “intertubes” are the root cause of all evil when it comes to pedophilia or smacking him down because he is wants to be easy on pedophiles. In the end it turns out to be another attempt to spin every issue as an illegal alien concern. So, in addition to being told that all illegal aliens are on the public dole, steal shopping carts, expose themselves at the local 7-11, and don’t speak English, should I now add child molesters to the list? Yes, statistically I’m sure there are illegal aliens on the sex offenders registry, but what does legislating entering into the 287(g) program have to do with this bill? If your hero Bob Marshall proposed this same piece of legislation, would you take him to task for not including the 287(g) provision?

    Does Moran get *any* credit for cracking down on these predators? Nope. He gets blasted because for some reason a bill that fights child molestation and sexual assault is somehow supposed to be connected to illegal aliens.

    This one-trick pony is getting a little stale.

    Yea, but we have a welfare system. That is the problem with your argument. And more than a welfare system, we have all sorts of components that are part of a welfare system.

    Sure, there are always going to be Americans to do those nasty jobs…but will there be enough Americans to do them? I am looking very broad-based when I ask the questions.

    It just sounds like to me, that most people on bvbl want to illiminate immigration to this country. That is a whole other issue. I see a need for foreign workers. If we give them permission to be here, based on business need, then they will not be illegal.

    For the record, I can accept we don’t want them easier than I can accept we don’t need them. The later simply is not true. The former is an opinion.

    I am not sure if you are following that thread so I will post an answer to you here:

    I do not think the bloggers on BVBL want to eliminate immigration at all. I think they want the law enforced. I agree we need certain immigrants. The problem is, we have many good Americans that can do the same work as the immigrants, but want to be paid for it. Companies are not willing to pay the American’s labor cost and use the immigrant labor. They are usually from a third world country and see making 10-15k less than the Americans as being “rich”. They live way within their means because they have not been spoiled to think they have to have it all and can afford to even send money back home. I have personal experience with this.

    I do not like seeing our jobs exported to India or any other country like that.

    Medic,

    And I agree with what you just said. That doesn’t seem to be what people are taking exception to though. I do not think you and I are disagreeing.
