Jail Those Who Visit Extreme Islamic Websites Just Like Child Porn Sites Is a Perfect Fit for the USA and ICE.
Visiting extreme Islamic websites and child porn websites both to be an arrestable offence with heavy jail time and enforced by ICE, about time. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is already tracking sex predators and child porn sites, now just add extreme Islamic websites, perfect fit.
French prez Nicolas Sarkozy says, “Anyone who regularly consults Internet sites which promote terror or hatred or violence will be sentenced to prison,” suggesting that it was time to consider people who follow extremist websites as we would someone perusing pedophilia and child pornography websites. “What is possible for pedophiles should be possible for trainee terrorists and their supporters, too.”
In June 0f 2003, the United States Department of Homeland Security initiated The National Cyber Security Division (NCSD), to monitor terrorist traffic. Then the Combating Child Exploitation Act, (S. 1738), and the Keeping the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators (KIDS) Act of 2008, (S. 431) were signed into law to fight online and in person sexual exploitation of children.
The law established an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program in every state, and helps social networking sites share information on potential threats to children online. What it also did, which goes to the issue monitoring terrorism, is expands the legal definition of possessing child pornography or exploiting children to include accessing by computer visual depictions of child pornography with the intent to view.
ICE — is the largest investigative arm under the Department of Homeland Security, and fighting child pornography, child sexual tourism and trafficking of children is one of the agency's top responsibilities along with enforcing federal immigration laws. "We are working around the globe — and the violators know no border — and it is incumbent on us to be nimble from a law enforcement perspective," said David Marwell, Denver's acting special agent in charge.
ICE, with counterparts from the U.S. Attorney's Office, the Secret Service, the St. Paul Police Department, the Nashville Metropolitan Police Department, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, announced the arrest of more than 20 individuals associated with the trafficking ring. These individuals transported girls across state lines and forced them to have sex in exchange for small amounts of marijuana and liquor.
Allegedly, they also filmed the sexual acts and transmitted them via cell phones for others to view. Charges in this case stem from an initial investigation conducted by ICE's Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the St. Paul Police Department. The two agencies had reason to believe that a Somali gang was forcing young girls into prostitution. Working off a tip, the investigation led the agencies to Tennessee where a possible victim - a runaway from Minnesota - was located. Agents confirmed that the victim was one of four underage girls being transported across state lines for prostitution.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are already tracking Muslim terrorists, just last year Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced that more than 2,900 convicted criminal aliens were arrested during a seven-day national enforcement operation called "Cross Check." Now add the power of arrest for visiting extreme Islamic websites, perfect fit for ICE.
As part of "Operation Predator," ICE agents work undercover on peer-to-peer networks on the Internet to track down child pornography and work with local and global partners on capturing the producers of the images. Right now, agents in Denver are working tips on two cases of travelers who want to leave or come into the U.S. for the purpose of sexually abusing children.
And while many federal, state and local law enforcement agencies are investigating the child-porn problem, ICE has specific statutes it can enforce and a presence around the world with 69 offices in 49 countries.
"Transnational crimes are our forte, with the border authority that we have," Marwell said. In federal court, a person convicted of possessing child pornography will do significantly more time in prison — up to 10 years — for a first offense than in state court. Now add prison time of up to 10 years for visiting extreme Islamic websites, perfect fit.
