BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has joined 16 other Florida sheriffs in a new agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to hold undocumented people who have been arrested for allegedly committing crimes.

Rony Mendez, 26, an undocumented Guatemalan, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison last year in Polk County for sexually assaulting and impregnating a 10-year-old girl.

“You, the taxpayer, are paying for him for violent acts he did against children in this country and he should not have ever been here,” said Grady Judd, Polk County sheriff and president of the Florida Sheriff’s Association.

Alongside Judd and Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey, more than a dozen others have teamed with ICE to hold undocumented criminals facing release up to 48 hours, allowing ICE agents to pick up the accused criminals.

“It’s a really good common-sense solution to a problem we’ve dealt with for several years,” said Lt. John Herrell with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
