Another Mexican Murderer Illegally Enters the United States
Here’s another case of “we haven’t a clue” who is entering our nation until we catch them. Is this a sane policy?
In this case, a previously deported Mexican was found to be wanted for murder in Aquascalientes, Mexico.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A citizen of Mexico, who illegally re-entered the United States after being deported and is wanted in his native country on murder charges, was removed Oct. 16 by officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).
Officers with ERO’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested Felipe Campos-Gonzalez, 29, without incident July 15 at a residence in Grand Rapids. Campos-Gonzalez initially provided ERO officers with false identification before a biometric search of his fingerprints revealed his true identity and fugitive status in Mexico.
According to court documents, Campos-Gonzalez is wanted for a 2009 murder in Aguascalientes, Mexico. He was turned over to Mexican authorities Oct. 16 to answer to the murder charge.
Campos-Gonzalez illegally re-entered the United States after ICE removed him in 2008.
“Those who evade the law in another country cannot come to hide in our communities,” said Rebecca Adducci, field office director for ERO Detroit. “ICE works closely with foreign law enforcement partners to ensure those who are wanted for crimes in their country, and are here illegally, will be removed and held accountable for their actions.”
