When asked by a reporter on Sunday if Cuomo should resign, President Joe Biden responded, “I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us.”

Earlier on Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also declined to call for Cuomo’s resignation, saying only that he “must look inside his heart” to decide if he should step down.

“I think we should see the results of the investigation,” Pelosi said on ABC News Sunday.

Cuomo denied the allegations of sexual misconduct and said he will not resign in a press briefing on Friday.

New York Attorney General Letitia James is investigating the sexual misconduct claims and Cuomo has said he will “fully cooperate” with the probe.

A mounting number of New York Democrats — including Sens. Kristen Gillibrand and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer — have called for Cuomo to resign.

“Confronting and overcoming the Covid crisis requires sure and steady leadership. We commend the brave actions of the individuals who have come forward with serious allegations of abuse and misconduct,” Sen. Schumer and Sen. Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said in a statement on Friday.

They added, “Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York. Governor Cuomo should resign.”

Just The News put together a terrifying report on the announcement by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. Data released Monday unearthed that the agency arrested more than 130 sex offenders illegally present in the United States in a nationwide campaign.

From Oct. 22 through Nov. 4, law enforcement arrested 138 noncitizens, “including some with an executable final order of removal,” ICE wrote in a statement about the operation.

“Many of those arrested were described as citizens of Mexico who were convicted of child sex crimes. Offenders’ published ages ranged from 24 to 65″ adds Just The News.

“These sex offenders will be removed from the U.S., ending and impeding their ability to further victimize residents,” said Salt Lake City ICE official Michael Bernacke.

Five noncitizen sex offenders were apprehended in the Salt Lake City area, 21 were arrested in the Los Angeles area, five in the Seattle area and 15 in the San Francisco area.

ICE’s removal office conducted 3,415 arrests of noncitizens for sexual assaults last fiscal year, authorities said.
