Defending America Is Boring

Our immigration services can't keep Mexican criminals out of our country, but they're trying to make up for that by keeping American criminals out of other countries (emphasis mine):
Three Americans "tourists" are on their way home from Cambodia Monday after being arrested in an ongoing federal sex tourism investigation.

The arrests are part of “Operation Twisted Traveler,” an effort by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to identify and prosecute American sex tourists in Cambodia.
Why were these guys even on the radar? Because they were well known felons:
Another of the men onboard was Jack Sporich, a 74-year-old that police call the ‘Pied Piper of Pedophiles.” He spent nine years in a California prison for molesting as many as 500 boys during camping trips.
...
The final passenger, 59 year-old Ronald Boyajian, was convicted of 18 counts of sexual intercourse with minors in 1995 in Menlo Park, Calif.
Why were the even out of jail? Who knows, but luckily their abuses will finally meet the full force of law:
In the U.S. the men face charges under the Protect Act -- a 2003 law that provides life terms for child sex offenders with prior convictions, a much longer sentence than offenders would get abroad.
Heaven forbid they put them away for life for abusing American kids, or if ICE would do their job in the country they actually work for.
