From the opening statement of John N. Hostettler: "Operation Predator is an initiative Mr. Garcia launched on July 9, 2003, to identify alien child predators and remove them from the United States. As part of this operation, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is working with State and local police to help arrest alien predators and apprehend smugglers of children. ICE is prioritizing for removal aliens already convicted of sex offenses, as well as identifying alien sex offenders in prisons around the country so that they can be removed upon release. The Subcommittee will examine these components of Operation Predator in more detail to see how ICE has taken the lead in protecting our children from harm. We will also examine how this Subcommittee may further empower ICE in ridding the country of alien predators of child sex crimes."
