On Nov. 7, 2022, a Department of Justice immigration judge in Newark, New Jersey, ordered Trejo-Granados’ removal from the U.S.

According to the ICE records obtained by FOX 5, the Montgomery County Police Department arrested Trejo-Granados on March 21, 2023, and charged him with theft.

While those charges remain pending, ICE issued an immigration detainer on Trejo-Granados with the Montgomery County Detention Center on March 22, 2023; however, the agency says MCDC refused to honor the detainer and Trejo-Granados was released by MCDC on March 27, 2023.

MCPD arrested Trejo-Granados on Sept. 26, 2023, and charged him with theft again, and attempt to obstruct and hindering.

ICE then issued an immigration detainer with the MCDC on Trejo-Granados, once more, on Sept. 27, 2023; however, MCDC released Trejo-Granados from custody once again on Oct. 12, 2023.
