Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has had a productive month. On December 8, for example, officers deported two child predators to Mexico: Horacio Ornelas-Lomeli and Eduardo Flores-Rodriguez.
On March 30, 2018, a Washington State court had convicted Mr. Ornelas-Lomeli of three counts of child molestation. On November 9, 2020, the Airway Height Corrections Center transferred him to ICE for removal.
On April 17, 2008, another Washington State court had found Mr. Flores-Rodriguez guilty of luring a minor with a developmental disability. On April 28 of that year, ICE deported him. In July 2017, law enforcement discovered that Mr. Flores-Rodriguez had reentered the United States and deported him again. Last month, ICE found him in the United States illegally a third time and deported him once more.
ICE officers deported a murderer on December 8 as well. In 1998, a court convicted Arturo Rodriguez-Rodriguez of murder in the first degree and sentenced him to 320 months in prison. This month, after serving most of his sentence, ICE sent Mr. Rodriguez-Rodriguez back to Mexico.
On December 10, officers deported Compton Eversley (AKA “Abdel Nur”) to Guyana. In 1988, a Florida court found Mr. Eversley guilty of cocaine and cannabis possession and overstaying his six-month stay on a nonimmigrant visa. After serving a brief prison term, Immigration and Naturalization Services (ICE’s predecessor) deported him.
In 2006, an FBI investigation discovered that Mr. Eversley was part of a plan to “bomb fuel tanks, airport hangers, airplanes, fuel lines, and a flight-control tower at JFK.” At the request of US authorities, police in Trinidad and Tobago extradited him to the United States. In 2011, a Federal court found Mr. Eversley guilty of providing material support to commit a terrorist attack. After serving nine years in a US prison, Mr. Eversley is now back in Guyana — thanks to ICE.
On December 10, ICE officers in California arrested Salvadoran Carlos Morales-Ramirez. In 1998, a California court found Mr. Morales-Ramirez guilty of second-degree murder for killing a child. In 2013, ICE lodged an immigration detainer for the foreign convict, asking California to release him to ICE when his jail sentence ended. The Golden State ignored this request and released Mr. Morales-Ramirez into the civilian population on December 4. Six days later, ICE found and arrested him. His removal proceedings should start soon.
ICE keeps the United States safe from criminal aliens. Will President Joe Biden change that?
