Pedophilia is the Real Epidemic in the U.S.

LAREDO —U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations, Laredo Port of Entry officers detained one male United States citizen wanted for alleged lewd and lascivious acts towards a minor.

“Child sexual abuse can be devastating to those who endure it,” said Port Director Alberto Flores, Laredo Port of Entry. “Thorough border inspections help stop those sought by law enforcement for this heinous crime and, in turn, contribute to the security of our communities.”

The fugitive apprehension occurred on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, at the Juarez-Lincoln Bridge. A CBP officer inspecting vehicles arriving from Mexico, referred Guadalupe Madrigal, a 54-year-old male United States citizen, for a secondary inspection.  After escorting the passenger to secondary, subsequent biometric verification through law enforcement databases confirmed that the subject had an outstanding felony warrant for allegedly conducting lewd and lascivious acts on a minor, out of the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office in Sioux City, Iowa. The term “lewd or lascivious acts” refers to an action that furthers an offensive sexual desire.

According to Iowa Code § 902.9, the crime of committing a lascivious act with a child is normally charged as a class “C” felony which is punishable by a prison term of up to 10 years and a fine of $1,000 to $10,000. The passenger was turned over to the Webb County Sheriff’s Office to await criminal proceedings. 

The National Crime Information Center (NCIC) is a centralized automated database designed to share information among law enforcement agencies including outstanding warrants for a wide range of offenses. Based on information from NCIC, CBP officers have made previous arrests of individuals wanted for homicide, escape, money laundering, robbery, narcotics distribution, sexual child abuse, fraud, larceny, and military desertion. Criminal charges are merely allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.

It's weird to see arguments over politics, religion and grammar over something like pedophilia.  I would consider it extremely wrong no matter who is doing it.  The children of the next generation are always the targets.

A number of years ago I worked in a group that found it entertainig to exchange insults... in a playful way, of course.  On one occasion I was engaged in a verbal duel with one of my cohorts, and at one point I addressed him as "BB Balls".

A guy observing this verbal battle jumped in and said, "Okay! How do you know he has BB balls?"

I paused politely and said, "Fred, your wife told me that."

The conversation went downhill after that.
