Columbian Suspect Accused of Murder Got Arrested by ICE

Columbian noncitizen got captured by police

Amidst the several controversies and arguments related to the border control and immigration policies, a new incident had added to the fuel of Americans’ nightmare. Reportedly a fugitive from Columbia had unlawfully entered into the United States from an unknown location. The law enforcement officials are currently trying to figure out how he managed to escape the official centers for immigrants. 

The impending punishment that the suspect managed to escape

The columbian suspect  was sentenced to 22 years in prison in 2011 and failed to return from a three-day furlough in 2018.Upon further investigation, police officers came to know that the individual held multiple serious criminal charges against him. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had arrested him from New Jersey. 

Current state of the suspect

Currently the suspect remains at ICE custody as the officers continue to question him for further information. Sources informed that the suspect was previously captured by the New Jersey police as he got involved in some terroristic threats and some other minor crimes. The law enforcement officials had gotten hold of him during an action that was taken for enforcing public safety and well being. 

The process of removal from the custody

After putting the fugitive in custody, The Newark Police had informed the Columbian officials to gather more details about the individual. On 10th January, they received a confirmation stating that Columbia police had been looking for this suspect. Now the accused awaits for further proceedings where he would be handed over to the Columbian law enforcement officials so that they can smoothly process the prison sentence. 

Fugitives who get arrested for some crimes are generally  placed into removal proceedings. They usually receive their legal due process from federal immigration judges in the immigration courts. These courts are administered by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). EOIR is an agency within the U.S. Department of Justice and is separate from the Department of Homeland Security and ICE. 

Statement from official

“This is clearly a case of an individual with a very dangerous criminal history who poses a threat to the community,” said ERO Newark Field Office Director John Tsoukaris. “Beyond the committed efforts of our officers, I’d like to thank U.S. Customs and Border Protection of New York/Newark, Office of Field Operations, for their assistance with the investigation that helped lead to the subject’s arrest.”

The citizens question about their safety 

However this incident had evoked fear among the American citizens as they already assumed that the loose immigration policy was going to help criminals like this suspect escape their country and take refuge in the United States of America.

They had previously expressed their concerns and protested against the several strategies of the Government that aid the immigrant families without conducting a proper background check on them. Due to the sudden influx of immigrants, the crime rates had shot up to higher than ever. The citizens are questioning whether authorities are more concerned about the immigrants rather than its original citizens who are also suffering.
