(FixThisNation.com) – In a press release, ICE disclosed that its Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in Boston had arrested a Brazilian fugitive who was wanted for aggravated homicide following a close to two-year search. According to the report the crime had been committed in Brazil.
ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd Lyons had disclosed that the fugitive had committed the crime in Brazil, which is his native country, and had proceeded to hide in Everett, Massachusetts. He continued by saying that ERO is focused on ensuring that foreign fugitives are not able to avoid facing justice for their crimes by hiding in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He proceeded to praise the officers of the agency for their work in ensuring the security of the community.
While the agency did not reveal the identity of the man, it was revealed that he had previously been apprehended by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in August 2021 near Otak Mesa, California. At the time he had been suspected of having entered the country illegally but was shortly released on his own recognizance with a Notice to Appear. He was also charged with inadmissibility.
Following his release, a criminal court in Governador Valadares, a city in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, issued a warrant for his arrest. The man will now remain in ICE custody awaiting his hearing with the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review.
