COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is demanding the reinstatement of Operation Talon, a nationwide plan to deport convicted sex offenders who are in the United States illegally.

Yost, plus attorneys general from Arizona, North Dakota, and Wyoming sent a letter to President Biden Wednesday.

The letter came following news reports that the operation had been terminated.

“Deport convicted alien sex offenders. That’s what Operation Talon was supposed to do and President Biden shut it down,” Yost said. “Inconceivable!”

Yost’s letter is similar to the one sent to President Biden from 18 attorneys general last week calling for the reinstatement of Operation Talon.
