LAREDO, Texas – According to a press release, officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a Salvadoran man on Tuesday.
Jaime Valle-Saracay, 27, was wanted for homicide in his home country. He was turned over to Salvadoran law enforcement authorities upon his arrival in El Salvador, said the agency’s press release.
“Our officers remain focused on ensuring that our efforts target fugitives from justice, both here and abroad,” said Daniel Bible, field office director for ERO San Antonio. “We will continue to deny fugitives the opportunity to evade the justice systems of our international partners by hiding unlawfully in the Unites States.
According to the release, Valle was originally detained by Customs and Border Protection near Rio Grande City. He was later transferred into ICE custody and granted bond as he awaited his removal proceedings. But El Salvador then issued a warrant for Valle’s arrest for Homicide. Two years later on Feb 11, 2019 he was convicted of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury before he was transferred into ICE custody on May 5 and returned back to his home country.
