ERO San Francisco arrests 8 noncitizens with criminal convictions released on parole or placed on probation during nationwide operation

News Release from ICE, March 20, 2023

SAN FRANCISCO - Officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) San Francisco apprehended eight removable noncitizens identified as having been convicted of attempted murder, murder second degree, domestic violence, rape by force, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, burglary, unlawful possession or use of a firearm, or drug distribution or trafficking who had been released from incarceration on parole or placed on probation into communities under supervision during a nation-wide enforcement effort from March 4 to March 13. 

“ERO officers in the San Francisco area of operations are committed to enforcing our nation’s immigration laws against violent criminals, sex offenders and other noncitizens who pose a threat to public safety,” said ERO San Francisco Field Office Director Moises Becerra.

Those arrested include: 

A 47-year-old citizen of Honduras in Colma, convicted by the Multnomah County Court in Portland, Oregon, of felony deliver/manufacture of the controlled substance heroin, in June 1999.

A 39-year-old citizen of the Federated States of Micronesia in Honolulu, Hawaii, convicted by the District Court of the First Circuit, Waianae Division, in Waianae, Hawaii of highly intoxicated driving under the influence in October 2010; they were also convicted by the Circuit Court of the First Circuit in Honolulu, Hawaii, of felony promoting dangerous drugs and second-degree robbery in June 2019.

A 48-year-old citizen of Mexico in San Jose, convicted by the Santa Clara County Superior Court in San Jose, of felony lewd lascivious acts with a child under 14 in July 2022.

ICE targets and arrests noncitizens who have committed crimes and other individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws. ICE officers, informed by their experience and training, use their discretion inherent as law enforcement officials to focus enforcement resources on people who threaten the homeland. The effort includes noncitizens with a final order of removal. Cases amenable to federal criminal prosecution may be presented to the appropriate U.S. attorney’s office.  

In fiscal year 2022, ERO arrested 46,396 noncitizens with criminal histories. This group had 198,498 associated charges and convictions, including 21,531 assault offenses; 8,164 sex and sexual assault offenses; 5,554 weapons offenses; 1,501 homicide-related offenses; and 1,114 kidnapping offenses.

As one of ICE’s three operational directorates, ERO is the principal federal law enforcement authority in charge of domestic immigration enforcement. ERO’s mission is to protect the homeland through the arrest and removal of those who undermine the safety of U.S. communities and the integrity of U.S. immigration laws, and its primary areas of focus are interior enforcement operations, management of the agency’s detained and non-detained populations, and repatriation of noncitizens who have received final orders of removal. ERO’s workforce consists of more than 7,700 law enforcement and non-law enforcement support personnel across 25 domestic field offices and 208 locations nationwide, 30 overseas postings, and multiple temporary duty travel assignments along the border.

Members of the public can report crimes and suspicious activity by dialing 866-347-2423 or completing the online tip form. Learn more about ICE’s mission to increase public safety in your community on Twitter @EROSanFrancisco.
