HSI arrests 71 for child sexual exploitation crimes


Seventy-one individuals have been charged for crimes involving the sexual exploitation of children as part of Operation Caireen. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents partnered with the New York City Police Department (NYPD) during the operation, which began on April 4 and ran through May 15.

Operation Caireen, according to HSI Special Agent in Charge James T. Hayes, Jr., was the "largest-ever enforcement operation in New York targeting predators who possess, produce, or distribute sexually explicit images of children."  More

APC is a self-service kiosk that allows travelers or family groups to submit their Customs Declaration and biographic information electronically and reduce the time they spend with a CBP officer. This has resulted in an average of 20-40% decrease in wait times at airports that employ APC kiosks, according to CBP.  More
