Victims' rights advocate John Walsh is calling for illegal immigrants to be added to the national sex offender registry just as American citizens are.

National Review Online notes that Walsh, in a recent CNN appearance, pointed out that after passage of the 2006 law named after his own murdered son, Adam, "Now you are able to find out if a convicted sex offender is living next door."

But only if the convicted sex offender is an American, "not an illegal immigrant," Walsh said.

Story continues below video.


He expressed dismay that the United States has money for space exploration, but can't find a way to strengthen its sex-offender notification laws, "especially illegal alien sex offenders who have gotten into this country and broken the law, raped our women or … molested our children, and then are released back into society."

The Boston Globe reported in June that hundreds of immigrants convicted of sex crimes should have been deported, but were released into the United States after their home countries refused to take them.

"They are convicted rapists, child molesters, and kidnappers — among 'the worst of the worst,' as one law enforcement agency put it," the Globe wrote.

But according to the Globe's reporting, immigration officials released the sex offenders without ensuring that they had registered with local authorities.

"Why we don't have a sex offender or felony registry for illegal aliens is beyond me," Walsh told CNN.
