Last week, in Tampa, FL, a man was arrested for impersonating a police officer and soliciting sex from an immigrant woman. The man, 38-year old Edwin Nieves, told the woman, who is 7 months pregnant, that she would be deported unless she had sex with him.
Because he was arrested wearing his fake police attire, investigators think Nieves has more victims who may be reluctant to come forward.
Absolutely shameful. Using the fear of deportation to abuse and exploit immigrants is nothing new, but that doesn’t make it any less disgusting.
