    ICE fugitive operations arrest 45 illegal criminal aliens in DC area

    Washington, D.C. – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Washington arrested 45 at-large, convicted criminal aliens who were also immigration fugitives during a four-day law enforcement operation that culminated Thursday.

    The surge operation was conducted throughout Virginia and D.C. from Feb. 23 to 27, identifying previously convicted criminal aliens amenable for removal from the United States. The enforcement effort netted arrests of aliens with prior criminal convictions for larceny, possession of stolen property, driving under the influence of alcohol, burglary and theft.


    "ICE is committed to improving the integrity of our nation’s immigration system," said M. Yvonne Evans, field office director for ICE’s Office of Detention and Removal Operations Washington. "The United States welcomes law abiding immigrants, but foreign nationals who violate our laws and who commit crimes against those in our communities will not be allowed to stay."


    Among the 45 arrested over the four-day operation were:


    • A 35-year-old Mexican national, arrested outside his residence in Falls Church, who had previous convictions in Fairfax County for felonious assault and larceny and who was previously removed from the U.S. on two occasions, most recently in 2003.
    • A 34-year-old Mexican national, arrested as a result of a vehicle stop in Roanoke, who has a previous conviction in 2009 from Roanoke City Circuit Court for DUI-third offense and was sentenced to two years imprisonment. He was ordered removed on Dec. 9, 2010, by an immigration judge in Arlington.
    • A 40-year-old Jamaican national arrested at his residence in Virginia Beach, who had been convicted in the Virginia Beach Circuit Court of conspiracy to distribute marijuana and carrying a concealed weapon and sentenced to two years imprisonment.


    This enforcement action was spearheaded by ICE's National Fugitive Operations Program, which is responsible for investigating, locating, arresting and removing at-large criminal aliens and immigration fugitives.


    ICE is focused on smart, effective immigration enforcement that targets criminal aliens and threats to public safety and national security, as well as immigration fugitives and those who have been previously removed from the country.

    CORRECTION: ICE arrests 45 at-large criminal aliens in DC and Virginia during 5-day operation

    Note: This ICE enforcement operation was initially erroneously reported as a 4-day fugitive operation instead of a Criminal Alien Program (CAP) operation.


    WASHINGTON — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Washington arrested 45 at-large, criminal aliens, some of whom are also immigration fugitives.

    These arrests occurred during a five-day law enforcement operation that culminated Feb. 27.


    The Criminal Alien Program (CAP) operation was conducted throughout Virginia and the district from Feb. 23 to 27, identifying previously convicted criminal aliens that circumvented identification in local jails and are amenable to removal from the United States. The enforcement effort netted arrests of aliens with prior criminal convictions for larceny, possession of stolen property, driving under the influence of alcohol, burglary and theft.


    "ICE is committed to improving the integrity of our nation's immigration system," said M. Yvonne Evans, field office director for ERO Washington. "The United States welcomes law abiding immigrants, but foreign nationals who violate our laws and who commit crimes against those in our communities will not be allowed to stay."


    Among the 45 arrested over the five-day operation were:


    • A 35-year-old Mexican national, arrested outside his residence in Falls Church, who had previous convictions in Fairfax County for felonious assault and larceny and who was previously removed from the U.S. on two occasions, most recently in 2003.

    • A 40-year-old Jamaican national arrested at his residence in Virginia Beach, who had been convicted in the Virginia Beach Circuit Court of conspiracy to distribute marijuana and carrying a concealed weapon and sentenced to two years imprisonment.


    This enforcement action was spearheaded by ICE ERO Washington's enforcement units, responsible for investigating, locating, arresting and removing at-large criminal aliens and immigration fugitives.

    Sweep nets 45 arrests of aliens, illegal immigrants convicted of crimes in D.C. and V

    Sweep nets 45 arrests of aliens, illegal immigrants convicted of crimes in D.C. and Virginia

    According to a report from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), authorities recently wrapped up a five-day operation that resulted in the arrest of 45 people that were either criminal aliens or illegal immigrants convicted of crimes.

    The arrests were made in D.C. and across Virginia.

    Between Feb. 23 and 27, the Criminal Alien Program performed a sweep, identifying previously convicted aliens or illegal immigrants that had escaped their notice in local jails, for removal from the U.S.

    According to a statement from ICE, those arrested had prior convictions for crimes such as larceny, possession of stolen property, driving under the influence of alcohol, burglary and theft.

    "The United States welcomes law abiding immigrants, but foreign nationals who violate our laws and who commit crimes against those in our communities will not be allowed to stay," said M. Yvonne Evans, field office director for ICE's Enforcement and Removals Operation in Washington.

    ICE's statement included details on a few of the arrested individuals, such as a Mexican national living in Falls Church with prior convictions for assault and larceny, who has been removed from the U.S. more than once, most recently in 2003.

    Other examples included a Jamaican national in Virginia Beach who had been convicted by a circuit court judge for distributing marijuana and illegally carrying a concealed weapon, and a Mexican national in Roanoke who had been convicted of his third DUI offense.
