Amid Tsunami of Illegal Immigration, ICE Brags About Deporting One Criminal

Posted on | June 1, 2024 | 1 Comment

First, here’s the agency’s press release:

ERO Baltimore arrests noncitizen wanted by Dominican authorities for manslaughter
Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Baltimore apprehended a Dominican national wanted in his home country for manslaughter. Deportation officers from ERO Baltimore’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested the 27-year-old noncitizen at his residence in Baltimore May 23.
“This Dominican national came to Maryland in an attempt to evade a serious charge in his home country,” said ERO Baltimore acting Field Office Director Matthew Elliston. “He posed a significant threat to our Maryland communities. ERO Baltimore will not allow Maryland to become a safe haven for the world’s criminals.”
The Dominican noncitizen unlawfully entered the United States on an unknown date and at an unknown location. He was not inspected, admitted or paroled by a U.S. immigration official.
Dominican authorities charged the Dominican national for injury causing death/manslaughter/murder Sept. 21, 2022, and subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest.
The Dade County Police Department in Miami, Florida, cited the Dominican noncitizen May 4, 2023, for driving on the wrong side of the roadway.
On May 13, 2024, ERO Philadelphia notified ERO Baltimore that the Dominican noncitizen’s vehicle was located at the scene of a drug distribution and trafficking investigation in Baltimore.
Deportation officers from ERO Baltimore’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested the Dominican noncitizen at his residence in Baltimore May 23 and served him a notice to appear before a Department of Justice immigration judge. The Dominican noncitizen will remain in ICE custody pending the outcome of his removal proceedings.
ERO conducts removals of individuals without a lawful basis to remain in the United States, including at the order of immigration judges with the Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). EOIR is a separate entity from the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Immigration judges in these courts make decisions based on the merits of each individual case, determining if a noncitizen is subject to a final order of removal or eligible for certain forms of relief from removal. . . .
As one of ICE’s three operational directorates, ERO is the principal federal law enforcement authority in charge of domestic immigration enforcement. ERO’s mission is to protect the homeland through the arrest and removal of those who undermine the safety of U.S. communities and the integrity of U.S. immigration laws, and its primary areas of focus are interior enforcement operations, management of the agency’s detained and non-detained populations, and repatriation of noncitizens who have received final orders of removal. ERO’s workforce consists of more than 7,700 law enforcement and non-law enforcement support personnel across 25 domestic field offices and 208 locations nationwide, 30 overseas postings, and multiple temporary duty travel assignments along the border.

Did you notice what’s missing from that? There is no name of this foreign killer, and ICE didn’t issue a mug shot, either. From the standpoint of a journalist, this press release fails at a very basic level. To report the arrest of a dangerous international fugitive without even including his name? Sorry, you just flunked Journalism 101. As for why the feds would do this, I suppose some bureaucrat might be apprehensive that to include the name and mug shot would inspire xeonophobic bigotry.

While we can be happy that ICE caught this one bad guy, what about the untold millions of other illegal immigrants who have poured into the country with the tacit permission of Joe Biden and his henchman, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas? Biden and Mayorkas have deliberately stopped protecting the border as a matter of policy, flooding the country with foreigners. A recent report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) concluded that “the total foreign-born population (legal and illegal together) grew to 46.7 million in February 2022, a new record high in American history and an increase of 1.7 million since January 2021.”

Importing foreigners at the rate of 1.7 million a year, but remember that “The Great Replacement” is a racist conspiracy theory, you bigot!

Now go back to that ICE press release. The agency admits they know nothing about how or when the unnamed Dominican killer got into the country: He “unlawfully entered the United States on an unknown date and at an unknown location.” All they know is that he got a traffic ticket in Miami in May of last year. Why wasn’t he detained by ICE and deported then? We don’t have an answer to that. Apparently illegal immigrants can drive on the wrong side of the road in Miami without fear of getting deported. So for at least a year, Señor Wrong-Way Dominican was at large in the U.S. until ICE officials in the crime-ridden hellhole of Philadelphia learned he was involved in a drug-dealing operation, and somehow they found him in the crime-ridden hellhole of Baltimore,

But then they issue a press release with no name or photo of Señor Wrong-Way Dominican, and expect that no one will notice the omission? Is this standard operational procedure at ICE? Or is it, as I suspect, part of an election-year propaganda campaign by Biden administration officials to convey the message that Our President is doing a bang-up job on border enforcement (no matter what those lying Republicans claim)?

We shall likely see many other press releases like this between now and Election Day. November 5 cannot arrive soon enough.
