Criminals released in Arizona by Border Patrol later arrested in New England

Border Patrol agents continue to release violent criminals into the U.S. who are later arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers thousands of miles away. While numerous examples exist, in three recent cases, Border Patrol agents in Arizona released violent criminals who were later arrested nearly 3,000 miles away in New England.

On June 12, ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations-Boston agents arrested an Ecuadorian illegally living in Northampton, Massachusetts, who was wanted by Ecuadorian authorities.

He first entered the country illegally on June 4, 2021, when he was arrested by Border Patrol agents near San Luis, Arizona. Instead of processing him for removal, the agents issued him a “notice to appear” before a federal immigration judge at a date in the future and released him into the U.S.

No derogatory information, including his criminal record, came up when Border Patrol performed a background check, primarily because the background check relies on crimes committed in the U.S. registered in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, authorities have explained to The Center Square. No shared criminal database exists between U.S. and Ecuadoran authorities.
