As ICE lauches national “cross check” operation, Kenyan picked up in Massachusetts

Posted by Administrator on April 4, 2012

A dozen people from Central Massachusetts were arrested recently in a six-day national “Cross-Check” enforcement operation conducted by agents with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

An ICE press release said three people were arrested in Framingham, one in Hudson, one on Ayer, three in Milford, one in Leominster and three in Worcester.
The press release said a 24-year old man described as a Kenyan national who was previously convicted of possession and distribution of illegal narcotics was arrested March 28 in Worcester. ICE Northeast Region Communications Director Ross Feinstein said a second person arrested in Worcester is facing distribution of cocaine, assault and larceny charges while a third was arrested on non-criminal immigration violations.

Mr. Feinstein said he could only release the charges of the people picked up in the operation although the press release said of the 145 people arrested in New England 131 were male and 14 were female.

A Worcester police official said the local department was not involved in the arrests.

The three people arrested in Milford are wanted on a variety of immigration charges. One also faces an assault charge and another was taken in on a previous resisting arrest charge.
The Leominster person is looking at non-criminal fugitive charges while the person arrested in Hudson was wanted on a drunk-driving charge.

The Framingham and Hudson arrests involve various immigration violations, Mr. Feinstein said. Deportation proceedings will begin on all the people arrested during the six-day operation, according to Mr. Feinstein.

A total of 145 convicted criminal aliens and immigration fugitives, including 70 in Massachusetts, were arrested in New England by ICE, according to the press release.
The most severe cases included murder, manslaughter, drug trafficking and sexual crimes against minors, ICE said.

The “Cross Check “ enforcement operation resulted in the arrest of more than 3,100 convicted criminal aliens, immigration fugitives and immigration violators in the six-day nationwide sweep. The operation involved the collaboration of more than 1,900 ICE officers. Arrests occurred in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, three U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.
Of the 145 people arrested in New England, 119 had prior criminal convictions including 55 aliens who had multiple criminal violations, the press release said.
Broken down further, 64 of the 119 have felony criminal convictions and 55 have misdemeanor convictions. Six of the 119 are sex offenders.

Nationally, in addition to being convicted criminals, 698 of those arrested were also immigration fugitives who had previously been ordered to leave the country but failed to depart. Additionally, 559 were illegal re-entrants who had been previously removed from the country.

“The results of this targeted enforcement operation underscores ICE’s ongoing commitment to public safety,” said Dorothy Herrara-Nies, field office director of ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operation for New England. “When we focus on the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens and immigration fugitives, we get an immediate payback in our communities. Because of the tireless efforts and teamwork of ICE officers and agents, along with our state and local law enforcement officers, there are 145 fewer aliens and fugitives in our neighborhoods across New England.”
