SAN ANTONIO —  A Guatemala man, who is wanted for  homicide in his home country, was deported Wednesday by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in Laredo.

Juan Figueroa-Martinez, 27, was flown to Guatemala Sept. 16 onboard a charter flight coordinated by ICE’s Air Operations (IAO) Unit. Upon arrival, Figueroa-Martinez was turned over to officials Guatemalan authorities.

According to Guatemalan authorities, Figueroa-Martinez is the lead suspect in the rape of a 14-year-old child who subsequently died as a direct result of this crime. In June 2015 Figueroa-Martinez was confronted by the child’s father in Guatemala, at which time Figueroa-Martinez fatally shot the victim’s father with a rifle.

“Today’s removal of Figueroa-Martinez reflects ERO’s commitment not only to public safety in the United States but also abroad,” said San Antonio Field Office Director, Enrique M. Lucero. “His case should send a message to others like him, that the United States will not be used as a safe haven for those fleeing justice.”

Figueroa-Martinez was first removed to Guatemala March 9, 2013 from Newark, New Jersey after an immigration judge issued him a final order of removal. Two years later he returned illegally into the United States. He was arrested Aug. 17 by U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Office of Border Patrol near Falfurrias, Texas. He was transferred to ICE custody where he remained until his removal to Guatemala.
